Gamber-Johnson strongly advises a "bench test" be conducted to verify that all electronic
and software issues are resolved prior to installation:
1. Make sure computer is operational by itself.
2. Insert computer into docking station and verify that the display is operating in the
dock.
3. Interconnect entire assembly and verify start-up of all components, including other
equipment (printers, modems, scanners, etc.).
Attaching Strain Relief Bracket
A cable Strain Relief Bracket is provided in the hardware bag. This bracket will
provide a mounting platform to secure all interface cables. It is recomended that all
cables are secured to the Strain Relief Bracket.
