Safety Instructions
Please read these instructions carefully before use.
● The enclosure is a heavy object. Use of adequate mechanical means to move
the enclosure to the desired location is highly recommended for long distances
to minimize risk of injury or unit damage. Use of the included casters is to move
the enclosure for short distances. Make sure the leveling feet have been raised
before using the casters to move the enclosure. To move the enclosure on
casters push from the front or rear. Pulling or pushing the enclosure from the
sides can cause a serious tipping hazard.
● For safety reasons, it is highly recommended to handle this unit between two or
more people. Use caution when unpacking, moving, and installing the
enclosure. Failure to follow may cause serious injury, or unit damage.
● Handle the unit with care. Take precautions to avoid damaging the enclosure
when unpacking, moving, repacking, or installing. Damage to the unit as a result
of negligence is not covered under warranty.
● Inspect the product and included accessories carefully before use. Do not use
an enclosure with visible damage.
● Before installing the enclosure, ensure that the floor is even and capable of
supporting the total load being installed in the enclosure, including the enclosure
itself.
● Do not stack the enclosures.
● Casters are only to be used to move the enclosure over short distances.
Casters are not to be used to support the total installed weight of the equipment
in the rack. Leveling feet should be lowered and secured such that casters are
raised above floor level.
● Keep the enclosure in an appropriately ventilated space, and do not block the
surrounding of the enclosure to ensure proper ventilation.
● Install the enclosure in an indoor area, free of dust, extreme moisture and
temperature changes, away from flammable objects, conductive contaminants,
and exposure to direct sunlight.
● Keep packaging materials if the enclosure will be reshipped. Do not ship the
enclosure with any equipment installed. This can cause damage to the
packaging material that can result in unit damage.

Move, Unpack and Place the Enclosure
CAUTION
Use an adequate mechanical means to move the enclosure to the desired location
is highly recommended to minimize risk of injury or unit damage.
1. Use a mechanical lift to move the palletized enclosure close to the final place of
installation. Minimize the distance the enclosure will be manually moved.
NOTE: Alternate method to move the enclosure is to use 4x M8 eye bolts (supplied by others)
and screwing them on to the roof corners of the enclosure. Eye bolts should be rated to
support at least 1000 lbs (450kg).
2. After moving the unit to the desired location remove the protective packaging.
NOTE: Side panels are shipped in separate packaging within the rack enclosure. Keep and
store the side panel packaging material for later use as needed.
3. Unscrew the shipping brackets from the pallet and enclosure, and save brackets
and hardware for later use.
CAUTION
Use caution when removing the shipping brackets as the enclosure may shift
unexpectedly.

4. Make sure the leveling feet have been raised. If not, turn the leveling feet
counterclockwise to raise them.
CAUTION
Do not use the included casters to move the enclosure over long distances.
Always raise the leveling feet when using the casters to move the enclosure. If the
leveling feet were not raised, they would be damaged during moving.
NOTE: To raise or lower the leveling feet, use a flat screwdriver to turn the screw from above
or an 18mm open-end wrench to turn from the bottom. See drawing above.
5. Between two or more people carefully push the enclosure from the front or rear to
move it down to the floor off the pallet.
CAUTION
● Always handle the enclosure between two or more people. Avoid uneven floors
when moving the enclosure.
● To move the enclosure on casters, push from the front or rear. Pulling or pushing
the enclosure from the sides can cause a serious tipping hazard.
6. Side panels are shipped in separately inside the rack enclosure. Remove the side
panels from their protective packaging, install the included retention tabs on to the
side panels shown below, and install the panels on to the rack enclosure as
shown in page 12, Open and Remove Side Panels.

Leveling the Enclosure
This enclosure comes with 4 leveling feet installed. Turn the leveling feet clockwise to
lower them to the floor. Ensure the leveling feet firmly support the enclosure while
keeping it balanced and level.
NOTE: Always lower the leveling feet on the enclosure after positioning it in it's final location of
installation.
Stabilize the Enclosure
To reduce the risk of injury, install the shipping brackets to the front and rear frame prior
to final equipment installation. Use the two shipping brackets that shipped with the
enclosure and screw them on to the base of the enclosure. The brackets can be
installed inside or outside of the enclosure for multiple applications.
NOTE: It is recommended to install the brackets inside the enclosure and installing the optional rack
enclosure stabilizer kit (CRA60004) on the outside of the enclosure. Doing this will reinforce
the stability of the enclosure.

Failure to follow may result in serious injury or death.
All enclosure doors have a pre-installed ground wire connected to the enclosure frame.
To connect the enclosure to facility’s ground, use the reserved grounding holes on the
base of the front or rear door frame to install an 8 AWG wire with the included M6
screw, and connect the other side of the wire to the facility’s grounding point.

Always ensure that rack angles are securely screwed in.
The installed depth of the rack angles and accessory channels can be adjusted by
unscrewing them from the horizontal mounting rails, and moving to the desired
location as shown below. Depth can be adjusted in 1/4” (6mm) increments.
NOTE: Rack angles and accessory channels are required to be installed perpendicular to the
horizontal rails. Position index numbers are printed on the horizontal rails to guide proper
installation. Make sure that the top and bottom positions match to ensure that they are
vertically straight.

Connecting In-Row Enclosures
Connecting enclosures together within the same row only provides limited
WARNING stability and is not meant to substitute the use of shipping brackets. Enclosures
being connected together should be of the same height and be compatible with
the same connecting hardware.
Enclosures within the same row can be connected together by using the included
brackets. Side panels can be removed for access between enclosures but is not
necessary. There are two connecting brackets on the front and two on the rear of each
enclosure.
1. Align the enclosures that will be connected together.
2. Remove the enclosure doors.
NOTE: See the Remove Front and Rear Doors section for instructions.
3. Remove a connecting bracket, shown below. Align the connecting bracket between
the enclosures such that each end can screw into the other enclosure. Repeat this
step for all connecting brackets. Each pair of enclosures should be connected
together by two front and two rear brackets.
4. (Optional) Reinstall the doors and connect the ground wire connecting the
door to the enclosure frame.

Cable Management
Cable Access
Cables can be routed through the cable openings on the roof while doors and side
panels are locked. To access cable openings, pull up on or remove the plastic tabs
located on the edge of the roof. Cable openings covered by a metal plate can be
removed by unscrewing them from the roof panel.
Removable Plastic Cover
Accessory Channels
CyberPower’s rack enclosures come with two accessory channels which have
toolless mounting slots for optional vertical cable managers or/and PDUs.

Equipment Installation
● Verify that the enclosure is securely stabilized prior to installing any equipment.
● It is strongly recommended to first install equipment in the bottom of the enclosure.
Heavier equipment should be installed in the bottom of the enclosure.
WARNING ● If using sliding rails with installed equipment, use caution when pulling the
equipment out of the enclosure, especially towards the top of the enclosure, as it
can cause loading to shift and increase the hazard of tipping or failing. If multiple
pieces of equipment use sliding rails only slide one piece of equipment out at once.
NOTE: Please review your equipment instructions carefully before installing in the enclosure.
1. Install the included black M6 cage nuts from the back of the rack angles as
shown below, and press the sides of the cage nuts to make sure they have been
inserted properly.
