Introduction
The ETCHS2U 20-Slot 2U Rack Mount Media Converter Chassis for ET Series 2 Media
Converters lets you add an un-managed, 20-slot media converter chassis to your rack
or cabinet to provide central power and cooling.
The media converter rack includes a single 200W power supply to centrally power all
20 slots, with an additional slot to add a redundant power supply (ETCHS2UPSU) for
maximum up-time. It also includes two cooling fans (one per side) to help extend the
life of your media converters.
A perfect accessory to the StarTech.com ET series 2 converters, the 2U chassis is
designed so that all critical components (Power, Fans and Media Converter Cards) are
hot swappable to avoid network disruption.

Instruction Manual

Installation
1. Locate a suitable location in the rack/cabinet within reach of an easily accessible
grounded AC outlet (100~240 VAC) to mount the chassis. The chassis itself requires
2U of space within the rack.
NOTE: Allow at least 10cm (4in) clearance at the front of the ETCHS2U for the fiber
and other copper cables
2. If the rack uses square mounting holes, install cage nuts (sold separately) into the
square mounting holes on the front posts of the rack.
3. Place the chassis into the rack and align the mounting points on the front brackets
of the chassis with the mounting points on the rack (e.g. the cage nuts, if used).
4. Use the appropriate cabinet screws (sold separately) to secure the chassis to the
rack.
5. Make sure the screws are properly tightened and the chassis has no movement
before attempting to place any media converter cards into the chassis.
6. Connect the appropriate power cord for your region to the grounded AC outlet.
Media Converter Card Installation
The ETCHS2U chassis supports the full line of StarTech.com ET series 2 media
converters, which can be installed in a mixed fashion to suit your environment. The
cards are designed to be hot-swappable, meaning the chassis need not be powered off
in order to remove or insert a card.
1. If the chassis slot was previously unused, loosen the screw at the top of the slot to
remove the cover plate
2. Loosen the captive screw located at the top of the ET series 2 media converter to
remove it from its casing

3. Align the card with the desired slot of the chassis and gently slide the card into the
groove to seat the power connection
4. Re-tighten the captive screw to hold the card in place
Fan Unit Removal/Replacement
The left and right-side fan units (ETCHS2UFANL, ETCHS2UFANR) in the chassis are
hot-swappable and can be replaced quickly and easily in the event of a failure. Simply
loosen the two thumbscrews from the top and bottom of the fan module and gently
slide out.

Power Module Addition/Removal
The AC Power Supply Module in the ETCHS2U supports input voltages of 100 to 240
(±10% @ ambient temperature) volts at frequencies of 47 to 63 Hertz. Only one power
supply module is required to power a completely full rack; however an additional
ETCHS2PSU unit can be added for redundancy. When two Power Supply Modules are
installed, the supplies are hot swappable, meaning any one supply may be removed
and replaced without impacting the operation of the chassis. Simply disconnect power
from the unit to be removed, and loosen the thumbscrews from each side of the
module to gently slide out.
