53 in./1346 mm
NOTE:
•
P9500 disk array racks are shipped in one of three standard packaging configurations:
Environmental pack - This packaging configuration consists of stretch wrap over corner
protectors. Environmental pack is used for most shipments within the USA that are shipped
directly from the factory to the customer. HP uses authorized carriers with a dedicated fleet
of trucks and specially trained personnel for Environmental pack deliveries.
WARNING! P9500 rack shipments delivered in Environmental packs must not be forwarded
by carriers that are not authorized by HP. Only HP authorized carriers can transport the P9500
racks in Environmental pack. Contact HP to arrange for Full Factory packaging when the
P9500 rack will be transported after initial delivery by HP.
•
Full Factory packaging - This packaging configuration consists of a pallet, wooden loading
ramp, inner packaging, and outer corrugated carton assembly. Full Factory packaging is used
for EMEA and for indirect ground shipments in USA and Canada.
WARNING! Full Factory packaging must be used any time a P9500 rack is transported
after initial delivery from the factory. Contact HP to arrange for Full Factory packaging.
•
Full Factory packaging with wooden crate - This packaging configuration consists of full
packaging and encased in a wooden crate. Full Factory packaging with wooden crate is used
for air freight shipments from USA.
Other areas: The hallways, doorways, ramps, and elevators must be large enough to allow a
single unpacked rack to be moved to the installation location. Unless the distance between the
receiving dock and the data center is very long, P9500 disk arrays are typically unpacked in the
receiving area and the individual racks with pre-installed equipment are rolled on their casters to
the data center. The following table provides the dimensions of the P9500 disk array.

AV411B Base 2.5 inch Drive Chassis does not include power supplies consequently demands zero (0) kVA and
generates no (0) kW heat.
NOTE:
Site power can be connected to the PDUs at either the top or bottom of the racks.
Grounding
The site and equipment must meet all of the following three conditions of installation for grounding.
•
An insulated grounding conductor that is identical in size and insulation material and thickness
to the grounded and ungrounded branch-circuit supply conductors. It must be green, with or
without yellow stripes, and must be installed as a part of the branch circuit that supplies the
unit or system.
•
The grounding conductor mentioned above should be grounded to earth at the service
equipment or other acceptable building earth ground such as the building frame in the case
of a high rise steel-frame structure.
•
The attachment-plug receptacles in the vicinity of the unit or system must include a ground .
The grounding conductors serving these receptacles must be connected to earth ground at the
service equipment or other acceptable building earth ground such as the building frame in
the case of a high-rise steel-frame structure.
Power connection
The AC power input for the P9500 disk array has a duplex PDU structure. This duplex structure
enables the entire rack to remain powered on if power is removed from one of the two power
distribution panels.
CAUTION: When installing a system, connect the AC cables between the PDUs and PDPs correctly.
Otherwise, a system failure can occur when one of the AC inputs is interrupted.
AC Power - PDU Options
P9500 is configured for input power using separate rackmount PDU products. PDUs are available
for three phase or single phase power for NEMA and IEC compliance applications.
NOTE: When ordering systems, HP does not allow mixtures of different phase PDUs in a system
(even though there are no technical issues). Only upgrade orders can ship with difference phase
PDUs in a system.

Heat output and air flow
The following table lists the heat output and air flow requirements for the P9500 disk array.
Both the control chassis and the disk chassis contain front and rear fans to circulate air through
the chassis from front to back. Air flows in through the front bezel to the rear of the component
and exits through the perforations in the rear door. Either the front fans or the rear fans can cool
the chassis by themselves. The racks do not contain fans. Airflow is from front to back.

NOTE: For safe and efficient maintenance operations, clearance (c) should be made as large
as possible. Actual clearances for installation should be determined after consulting with the
site/facilities manager, as the clearances can vary, depending on building conditions. Although
all disk chassis come pre-installed, up to 1420 mm of clearance may be required at both front and
back for a disk chassis replacement.
The figures in this section are not drawn to scale.
Single rack configuration
The following figure and table show the service clearances and floor load rating for a single rack
configuration.

required clearances are shown in Table 14 (page 23).
*2 Clearance (d) is required over 300mm to open the front door. In the case that the clearance
(d) is less tan the clearance (a), give priority to clearance (a).
*3 Clearance (e) is required over 200mm to open the rear door. If clearance (e) is less than
clearance (b), give priority to clearance (b).
*4 Dimensions in parentheses show allowable range of the front cutout dimensions. Basically,
position the floor cutout in the center of the rack. However, the position may be off center as long
as the cutout allows smooth entrance of an external cable (check the relation between the positions
of the cutout and the opening on the bottom plate of the rack) and is within the allowable range.

*1 Clearance (a+b) is based on the floor load rating and the clearance (c). Floor load rating and
required clearances are shown in Table 18 (page 29).
*2 Clearance (d) is required over 300mm to open the front door. In the case that the clearance
(d) is less tan the clearance (a), give priority to clearance (a).
*3 Clearance (e) is required over 200mm to open the rear door. If clearance (e) is less than
clearance (b), give priority to clearance (b).

Notes:
1. Actual clearances for installation should be determined after consulting with construction specialist responsible for
installation building, as they could vary depending on the size/layout of the system and building conditions.
2. When various configurations of disk arrays are arranged in a row, clearance values based on the largest disk array
configuration should be used.
3. From the viewpoint of maintenance operations, it is suggested that Clearance (c) be made as large as possible.

Conventions for storage capacity values
P9000 disk arrays use the following values to calculate physical storage capacity values (hard
disk drives):
•
1 KB (kilobyte) = 1,000 bytes
•
1 MB (megabyte) = 1,0002 bytes
•
1 GB (gigabyte) = 1,0003 bytes
•
1 TB (terabyte) = 1,0004 bytes
•
1 PB (petabyte) = 1,0005 bytes
•
1 EB (exabyte) = 1,0006 bytes
P9000 disk arrays use the following values to calculate logical storage capacity values (logical
devices):
•
1 KB (kilobyte) = 1,024 bytes
•
1 MB (megabyte) = 1,0242 bytes
•
1 GB (gigabyte) = 1,0243 bytes
•
1 TB (terabyte) = 1,0244 bytes
•
1 PB (petabyte) = 1,0245 bytes
•
1 EB (exabyte) = 1,0246 bytes
