Mounting the Intuition XG-e chassis in a rack
Included in the shipping package is a Rack mounting kit, which contains the rails, screws
and washers required to mount the Intuition XG-e (1RU) chassis into an equipment rack.
Note that the rails are designed to fit in racks with a depth of 28” to 33”.
The two quick-release rail assemblies each consists of two primary sections: an inner fixed
chassis rail and inner rail extension that secure directly to the chassis, and an outer rail
assembly that secures directly to the rack itself.
CA UTION
Intuition XG devices are intended to be installed in a restricted access location by qualified
personnel. All health and safety regulations and precautions must be observed.
The following procedure provide step-by-step instructions for installing the rails and
mounting the Intuition XG-e chassis into an equipment rack.
To install the Intuition XG-e chassis:
1. Remove the Intuition XG faceplate by pulling the faceplate’s handles away from the chassis.
2. Place the inner rail extensions over the pre-attached inner rails which are attached to
the side of the chassis. Align the hooks of the inner rail with the rail extension holes.
Make sure the extension faces "outward" just like the inner rail.
3. Slide the extension toward the front of the chassis.
4. Secure the chassis with screws.
