Installing the ASA 214 in a rack

CAUTION

Rack mounting poses risks

When installing the device in a closed or multi-rack assembly, please con sider that, during operation, the ambient temperature, the mechanical loading and the electrical potentials will be different from those of devices which are not mounted into a rack.

Make sure that the ambient temperature within the rack does not ex ceed the permissible temperature limit specified in the specifications.

See “Specifications”.

Ensure sufficient ventilation; if necessary, provide additional ventila tion.

Make sure that the mechanical loading of the rack is even.

When connecting to the power supply system, observe the information indicated on the type plate. Avoid circuit overloading. If necessary, pro vide overcurrent protection.

When rack mounting, please note that intrinsically harmless leakage currents of the individual power supply units may accumulate, thereby exceeding the allowable limit value. As a remedy, ground the rack via an additional ground connection.
