µATS Retention Kit – Part Number µATS1-OPT-RET
Description: This kit consists of a pair of keyhole style “D-ring” brackets and matching zip-lock
nylon ties. Use it in situations where it is desirable to physically attach the Zonit µATS™ to the
equipment being powered or secure it to the rack where the equipment is mounted.
PRE-INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS
Prior to deployment of the µATS™ Retention Kit, to insure the µATS™ will function properly in its
intended application, the following site considerations should be reviewed.
MOUNTING OPTIONS
The µATS™ has NEMA 5-15, IEC C14 or NEMA L5 plugs on its input cords, intended to be
connected to 15A single phase 120V power sources. The output is an IEC320 C13 female plug,
which is the most common input to modern electronic data processing equipment.
The µATS™ can be used in several configurations:
 Direct Attach – The µATS™ is connected directly to equipment via its integral IEC320
C13 plug.

Indirect Attach – The µATS™ can be connected indirectly to equipment via an optional
accessory, the IEC C13 Extension Kit ( Part Number µATS1-EXT-C13).

Plugstrip Feed – The µATS™ can be used to feed a 15A plugstrip via an optional
accessory, the NEMA 5-15 Extension Kit – (Part Number µATS1-EXT-515).
Note: For applications that use 208-240V 10A input Zonit offers µATS™ models for that
application. Call for availability.
The µATS™ Retention Kit can be used in both the direct attach and indirect attach scenarios.
SITE PREPARATION
Perform site preparation in accordance with the directions in the µATS™ User Guide.
INSTALLATION

Take the µATS™ Retention Kit out of its shipping materials (it may be bundled with a
µATS™ unit or shipped separately, depending on how it was ordered) and verify that
there are two keyhole style “D-ring” brackets and two matching zip-lock nylon ties, intact
and undamaged.
Direct Attach Scenario

Make sure that the equipment the µATS™ Retention Kit will be installed onto is powered
down. If the equipment is already powered up, be sure to follow the manufacturers
recommended shutdown procedure before powering it down.


If a µATS™ unit was already installed, remove it after the equipment is powered down.

Locate a screw (which must not be a flathead screw) on the rear panel of the powereddown equipment that you are installing the µATS™ Retention Kit onto. Choose a screw
that is close to the power inlet. Orient the zip-lock tie wrap retainer so that it will be pulled
on as close to the center axis of the power inlet as is practical. Loosen the screw slightly,
only enough to slide the supplied tie wrap retainer underneath it. It is recommended that
you do not remove the screw. Once the tie wrap retainer is slid underneath the screw,
tighten it securely. See Figure 2 below for an example installation.
Figure 2 – Example Installation of Tie Wrap Retainer
Note: If no screws are located near the power inlet, it may be advantageous to use two
tie wrap retainers instead of one. This way two tie wraps can be used and their off-center
axis forces on the µATS™ unit balanced.

Insert the µATS™ unit via the integral IEC320 C13 female plug into the equipment to be
powered. If the plug on the µATS™ will not insert because of clearance issues, use an
optional accessory, the IEC C13 Extension Kit (Part Number µATS1-EXT-C13) to do an
indirect attach installation.

This C13 extension cord can be used to make the connection between the equipment
and the µATS™. Do NOT yet plug in either the A or B input cords of the µATS™ - that
will be done at a later step.

Take one or both of the zip-lock tie wraps supplied with the µATS™ Retention Kit and
thread them through the retention eyelets in the case of the µATS™. If only one tie wrap
will be used, it can be advantageous to thread it through both of the µATS™ retention
eyelets as shown in Figure 3a and 3b. Note that the square end of the zip tie is
positioned so that it is aligned parallel to the top edge of the µATS™ case, which makes
threading and tightening the zip tie much easier.


If desired clip off the excess length of the zip-lock tie with a suitable tool.

Now connect the µATS™ to power following the instructions in the µATS™ User Guide.

Turn on the equipment following the manufacturers recommended startup procedure.
Indirect Attach or Plugstrip Feed Scenarios

Make sure that the equipment the µATS™ Retention Kit will be connected to is powered
down. If the equipment is already powered up, be sure to follow the manufacturers
recommended shutdown procedure before powering it down.

If a µATS™ unit was already installed, remove it after the equipment is powered down.

Locate a suitable location in the equipment rack or cabinet to attach and secure the
µATS™. It is recommended that you choose a location in the rack that will not interfere
with normal operation of slide rail kits or inserting and removing equipment from the rack.
Make sure that the adapter cord that you are using for the indirect attach of the µATS™ is
long enough to not have tension on it when the µATS™ is secured to the rack.

Use one or both of the zip-lock tie wraps to secure the µATS™ unit to the rack. It may be
useful to use one or both of the tip wrap retainers, but this is most often not needed, the
zip-lock tie wraps can usually be laced around or through some part of the rack structure.

Now connect the µATS™ to power following the instructions in the µATS™ User Guide.


Turn on the equipment following the manufacturers recommended startup procedure.
DE-INSTALLATION

Shutdown then power off all the equipment that the µATS™ is supplying power to
following the µATS™ de-installation instructions in the µATS™ User Guide. Be sure to
follow the manufacturers recommended shutdown procedure for all equipment.

Cut the zip-lock tie wraps that secure the µATS™ unit to the equipment or rack.

Now remove the µATS™ from the equipment or rack.

If a direct attach scenario was used, loosen the screws holding the tie wrap retainers to
the equipment, and then slide them out from under the screw heads. It is recommended
that you do not remove the screws. After removing the tie wrap retainers, re-tighten the
screws securely. If tie wrap retainers were used with a rack, unscrew and remove them.
