This chapter includes some general information about installing the
VIPRION chassis. However, for details about installing the VIPRION chassis, refer to the Setting up the VIPRION Platform
guide. This guide includes detailed information, including:
We recommend that all chassis have 1U spacing between them when
mounted in a rack to allow for a rack mounting shelf, and to provide additional air circulation for cooling the chassis.
Although not required, a 1U space between chassis makes it easier for you
to remove the chassis from the rack in the event that the unit requires service. A 1U space between units also provides additional cable routing options.
We recommend 100 mm spacing from the front panel of the unit to the rack
front or rack door. This provides enough room for you to route the cables without bending them excessively.
