    JATP700 Appliance Rack and Clearance Requirements

    The JATP700 appliance is installed in a four-post rack.

    Table 1 provides the requirements for rack size, clearance, airflow, spacing of mounting brackets and flange holes, and connecting to the building structure.

    Table 1: Rack and Clearance Requirements for the JATP700 Appliance

    Rack Requirement



    A 19-in. (48.3 cm) rack as defined in Cabinets, Racks, Panels, and Associated Equipment (document number EIA-310-D) published by the Electronics Industry Association (


    • The outer edges of the mounting brackets extend the width of chassis on both sides to 19-in. (48.3 cm).
    • The front of the chassis extends approximately 1.5-in. (3.8 cm) beyond the mounting ears.

    Spacing of mounting bracket and flange holes

    • The appliance can be mounted in any rack that provides holes or hole patterns spaced at 2-U [3.5-in. (8.89 cm)] increments.
    • The mounting brackets and front-mount flanges used to attach the chassis to a rack are designed to fasten to holes spaced at rack distances of 2-U (3.5-in.).
    • The mounting holes in the mounting brackets provided with the appliance are spaced 1.25-in. (3.2 cm) apart (top and bottom mounting hole).

    Connecting to the building structure

    Always secure the rack in which you are installing the JATP700 appliance to the structure of the building. If your geographical area is subject to earthquakes, bolt the rack to the floor. For maximum stability, also secure the rack to ceiling brackets.
