After you have reviewed the hardware requirements and become familiar with the i5000/i7000/i10000 Series platform, you can install the unit into a 19-inch rack.
The quick-install rails are optimized for installation into square hole cabinets, but can be installed in other cabinet styles, such as round hole cabinets, using the screws provided. The rails are easily converted to mount to either cabinet style.
For information about installing the platform using the quick-install rails, see the instruction guide provided by the manufacturer, which is included with the rail hardware.
After installing the platform, secure it to the rack with the rail lock brackets that are provided.
When installing using the quick-install rail kit, use these components.
|2||#8-32 pan head screws, steel zinc|
|8||#8-32 thumb screws (from rail kit, use only when installing into a round hole rack)|
|2||Rail lock brackets|
|4||M3 x 8mm flathead screws, black with patch (for rail lock brackets)|
You must ground the platform after you install it in a rack. The chassis ground lug is located on the back of the platform.
Do not secure multiple bonding or grounding connectors with the same bolt. The grounding connectors do not need to be removed to perform service or installation procedures. You can connect other bonding or grounding conductors to a grounding connector provided a reliable bond between the connector and the equipment is not disturbed during installation, service, or maintenance of the platform.
