Chassis Installation
Chassis Installation
This chassis can be installed in standard 19” racks that have depths between 65cm and
80cm between the vertical supports of the rack.
Installation and initialization of the chassis is a simple process requiring attention to the normal
mechanical, power, and thermal precautions for rack-mounted equipment. Your chassis comes
only with the power supplies and fans pre-installed. The rest of the openings are populated with
blanks. All of the leafs, spines, and managmement modules come shipped in a separate pakage.
The chassis requires initial configuration to get the chassis and Fabric management up and running
through remote management.
This unit is intended for installation in a Restricted Access Location. A restricted
access area can be accessed only through the use of a special tool, lock and key, or
other means of security.
1.1
Environmental and Safety Recommendations
The following are Mellanox recommendations.
Recommended ambient temperature in the System room is 20o ± 5o C.
Recommended humidity ranges is 40% ± 15% without condensing.
It is highly recommended that the installation sites be as isolated as possible from all
sources of radio transmissions and electrical interference.
It is highly recommended that the installation site building be equipped with a lightning rod.
10
Mellanox Technologies
648 Port InfiniBand FDR Switch Platform User Manual
Rev 1.0
It is highly recommended that the installation site be equipped with smoke detectors
and a fire alarm warning system.
The system requires a KVA rated UPS system. The heat dissipation is calculated
(Power Dissipation x 3.42 = Heat Dissipation). It is recommended that a UPS system
be installed to protect the equipment in the event of unexpected power failure.
Make sure that the outlets and circuits will not be overloaded. Spread out the load over
at least two or three circuits or use a 3 phase circuit.
1.2
Chassis Package Contents
The package includes:
• 1 chassis with the following modules installed:
ƒ8 fans
ƒ10 PSUs
• 1 installation kit
• 1 box containing 10 power cords 125V 10A, C14 to C13, 6 feet long, USA UL Standard
• 1 cable management kit
Before you install your new SX6536 series chassis, unpack the system and check to make
sure that all the parts have been sent, check this against the parts list. Check the parts for
visible damages that may have occurred during shipping.
The leafs, spines, and management modules are shipped separately.
If anything is damaged or missing, contact your customer representative immediately.
The rack mounting holes conform to the IEA-310 standard for 19-inch racks. Guarantee proper ventilation, by leaving 8cm (3”) of space to the front and rear of the switch.
This will ensure proper air flow through the chassis. This is crucial for maintaining
good airflow at ambient temperature. In particular, route cables such that they do not
impede the air into or out of the chassis.

1.6
Physical Installation
Warning: This equipment is very heavy. Safety is the first concern. The fully loaded
chassis weighs ~740 lbs (~335 kg). Make sure that proper manpower and equipment
is used for transporting and moving the chassis.
The switch platform uses 31U of rack space in a standard 19” rack, 29U for the chassis and 2U for
the shelf. The switch ships from the factory with mounting holes on the spine side. There are upper
brackets to connect the leaf side to the rack near the top of the chassis, and there are two lockdown bars to secure the chassis to the shelf. The weight of the switch is supported from underneath
the unit by the shelf.
This chassis can be installed in standard 19” racks that have depths between 65cm and 80cm
between the vertical supports of the rack. Make sure that a fully populated rack including cables
will have sufficient air flow for cooling.
Choose a rack which is able to support the mechanical and environmental characteristics of a fully populated switch chassis.

1.6.1 Starting with the Rack
1.6.1.1
Rack Recommendation
Due to the space required by up to 648 connector cables Mellanox recommends a rack
that is 120 cm long and 80cm wide. This will allow for proper cable management and
enough ventilation to properly cool the chassis.
1.6.1.2
Preparing the Rack
The rack may need to be modified to accommodate the SX6536 chassis. The distance
between the vertical supports must be between 65 and 80 cm.
65-8
0
cm
Figure 1: Distance Between the Vertical Supports
This edge of the shelf
must be as close as
possible to the inside of
the door when closed.
The vertical supports may have to be moved so that the vertical support closest to the door
is 6 cm from the inside of the door. This may be required so that the shelf does not protrude from the rack.
If you move the vertical supports make sure that you reinstall them vertically
plumb.
1.6.2 ESD Connection
Before starting any procedure on the SX6536 series switch system:
1.
Put an ESD prevention wrist strap on your wrist, and make sure there is good contact
between your body and the strap.
Mellanox Technologies
13
Rev 1.0
Chassis Installation
2.
Plug the other end of the wrist strap to a valid ground. Make sure that this is a tight fit.
1.6.3 Installation Procedure
Installing the chassis will be a lot easier if you can remove the sides of the rack.
You will need a fork lift, to move and insert the chassis into the rack.
1.6.3.1
Requirements
You will need:
• #2 phillips screwdriver
• a fork lift
• measuring tape
• #3 phillips screwdriver
• a grounding lug
• ground wire of sufficient length and gauge to properly ground the
chassis
The installation will be much easier with a power screwdriver.
It is recommended to use AWG6 or 4mm diameter wire for grounding purposes.
It is recommended to have at least two people for the duration of the installation procedure. Use a mechanical lift to raise this chassis. If not, use enough manpower to ensure
the safety and wellbeing of all of the people involved in the installation.

Installing the Shelf
The chassis is on ball bearings and can roll easily. Be aware that the chassis can roll off
of the pallet. Should the chassis start to fall, move out of the way. The chassis can
cause grave bodily harm should it fall on or near you.
1.
Select the location in the rack. Try to keep the chassis as low as possible to keep the
center of gravity low.
It is recommended to set the shelf at U5. Try and keep the chassis as low as possible.
The maximum height that the chassis can be mounted, will be determined by the maximum height that the fork lift can raise the pallet.
2.
Open the Installation kit and make sure that all of the parts are in the box. See
Figure 2,“Installation Kit Parts”.
The chassis will sit in the rack with the spine side as close as possible to the door.
The side of the chassis with the spine units will sit flush with the vertical supports of
the rack. The side of the chassis with the QSFP connectors will sit at the edge of the
shelf closer to the center of the rack.
3.
Measure the distance between the vertical supports and adjust the shelf bracket
according to this distance. This chassis can be installed a rack with a distance
between the vertical supports of from 65cm(25.6in.) to 80cm(31.5in.).

Ground Connections
Make sure to connect the ground post to a valid electrical ground. Use a grounding lug and
a ground wire of sufficient capacity to safely convey a potential discharge. A ground wire
of AWG 6 or 4mm diameter is recommended for grounding this device. The chassis is
concurrently grounded through each of the PSUs. Only connect the PSU cords to properly
grounded outlets. Do not rely on the PSU grounds. It is absolutely necessary to connect the
grounding post. Make sure the connections are solid and permanent. If you choose to not
use the ground screw, make sure that the rack is properly grounded and that there is a valid
ground connection between the chassis of the switch and the rack. Test the ground using
an Ohm meter.

The chassis includes integrated hot-swap power supplies which support up to 10 load-sharing
1000W supply units. The slots for the power supply units (PSUs) are on the spine side. The left
side has odd numbered PSUs and the right side has even numbered PSUs. Each PSU has a dedicated AC inlet. This design enables the optional use of separate main and backup AC feeds. The
input voltage is Autorange, 100-240 VAC, 50Hz or 60Hz. The output voltage for the PSUs is 48V.
The power cords are standard 3-wire AC power cords including a safety ground.
Before starting any procedure on the SX6536 series switch system put an ESD prevention wrist
strap on your wrist and connect to the series chassis.
4.1
Powering Up the Switch Platform
Make sure that the power cords are compatible with your outlets. Power cords for different countries can be ordered from Mellanox. See the user manual appendix for
ordering part numbers for power cords.
1.
2.
Plug in the power cords to the PSUs.
Plug the other end of the power cord into a grounded outlets.
Make sure that the outlets and circuits will not be overloaded. Spread out the load over
at least two or three circuits or use a 3 phase circuit.
The Chassis must be started a full compliment of possible PSUs, thereafter it can run on one less
than the total number of PSUs. This final PSU is redundant and allows for hot swapping a PSU
should one fail. Connecting the PSUs to different AC lines provides AC failover protection.
A system should continue to run and allow a hotswap of a defective PSU. Should there not be
enough power to keep all of the leafs running, MLNX-OS may power down some leafs. If this
happens it may be necessary to reboot the chassis once the defective PSU has been replaced.
The power system will divide the current consumption by the number of working PSUs. Should
one of the PSUs fail, the total current consumption will then be divided by the remaining working
PSUs. When the failed PSU is hot swapped the new PSU will ramp up and pass its share of current, so that the total current is always divided by the number of working PSUs.

InfiniBand QSFP Cable Installation
InfiniBand QSFP Cable Installation
The switch uses industry standard QSFP InfiniBand cables which are available from Mellanox
Technologies . The standard QSFP cables support full 56+56Gb/s (FDR), 40+40Gb/s (FDR10),
40+40Gb/s (QDR), 20+20Gb/s (DDR) and 10+10Gb/s (SDR) bidirectional wire speed of the
switch ports. All InfiniBand QSFP connections are made to the leaf boards. Each leaf has 18
InfiniBand QSFP connectors in two rows, which are numbered 1-18.
If maximum cable lengths are exceeded data transfer will be reduced and the bit error
rate will increase.
FDR BandWidth is supported only by MLNX QSFP cables.
FDR and FDR10 are only guaranteed to work with approved Mellanox Cables.
All cables can be inserted or removed with the unit powered on. To insert a cable, press the connector onto the port receptacle until the connector is firmly seated. The green LED indicator above
the port will light when the physical connection is established (when both ends of the cable are
properly connected to working devices). To remove, disengage the lock and slowly pull the connector away from the port receptacle. For a valid physical connection both ends of the cable must
be connected to working devices.
Warning: Take care to not impede the air flow through the ventilation holes next to the
InfiniBand ports. Use cable lengths which allow routing horizontally around to the side
of the chassis before bending upward or downward in the rack.
Cables in the bottom row of the leafs should be inserted up side down in relation to the
how the cables are inserted in the top row of the leafs.

InfiniBand Fabric Initialization and Management
InfiniBand Fabric Initialization and Management
Subnet Management and Subnet Administration are standard components defined by the
InfiniBand Specification which implement fabric initialization, discovery, and configuration.
The switch’s switching fabric can be managed by MLNX-OS, as well as any third
party Subnet Management software running on an InfiniBand Host that is connected to
any switch port. The switch is also compatible with the Open Source Subnet Manager
OpenSM.
The chassis is basically an InfiniBand fabric built out of individual InfiniBand switch devices and
appears so to external Subnet Managers. The chassis supports the SystemImage GUID feature of
the InfiniBand specification which means that software management tools that support this feature
can recognize all the internal devices as a single switch system.
7.1
Configuring the Switch Management Modules for the First Time
On SX65xx systems, when having dual management systems, first connect the cable
and configure the master management module CPU and only then configure the slave.
By default the master CPU is the top management module. For further information on
the master and slave roles, see the MLNX-OS Software UM section “High Availability” for more information.
Initial configuration must be done on all of the management modules.
