3.1 Recommendations for Best Performance
We recommend that you:
Disconnect the power source and all cables connected to each machine that
is being mounted in the rack adapter before proceeding with the installation
Connect only good quality connection cables, thus avoiding interference,
deterioration in signal quality due to poor matching, and elevated noise
levels (often associated with low quality cables)
Avoid interference from neighboring electrical appliances and position
your rack adapter on the rack away from moisture, excessive sunlight
and dust
