Mount a CTP151 Device on Two Posts of a Rack
To mount a CTP151 device on a rack, you require the parts that are shipped with the device along with the following additional parts and equipment. These additional parts and equipment are not shipped with the device.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap
Four screws to secure the chassis and mounting bracket to the rack
Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2
Management host, such as a PC or laptop, with a serial port
Grounding cable (minimum 14 AWG (2 mm²), minimum 90°C wire), grounding lug (Panduit LCC10-14BWL or equivalent), a pair of 10-32x.25-in. screws, and a pair of flat washers
You can mount a CTP151 device on two posts of a 19-in. rack (either a two-post or a four-post rack). One pair of mounting brackets for mounting the device on two posts of a rack is supplied with each device. For mounting the device on a four-post rack, you can use the supplied two-post rack-mounting kit and secure the device to two of the posts.
The device weighs approximately 9.9 lb (4.5 kg). Two persons are required for mounting the device.
Ensure that the rack is in its permanent location, allowing adequate clearance for airflow and maintenance, and secured to the building structure.
If you are mounting multiple units in the rack, mount the heaviest unit at the bottom and mount the other units from bottom to top in the order of decreasing weight.
Wrap and fasten one end of the ESD grounding strap around your wrist and connect the other end to a site ESD point.
To mount the device on a rack:
- Align the mounting brackets along the front or rear of the side panels of the chassis—depending on whether you plan to front-mount or rear-mount the device—and attach the mounting brackets to the chassis by using the mounting bracket screws. Tighten the screws. See Figure 3.
- Have one person grasp both sides of the device, lift the device, and position it in the rack, aligning the mounting bracket holes with the threaded holes in the rack rail. Align the bottom hole in each mounting bracket with a hole in each rack rail, making sure that the chassis is level. See Figure 4.
- Have the second person use the rack-mounting screws (and cage nuts and washers if your rack requires them) to attach the mounting brackets to the rack.
