Step 2: Install the ACX5400 Chassis in the Rack

 

To install the router in a four-post rack or cabinet:

  1. Position the router in front of the rack or cabinet.
  2. Wrap and fasten one end of the ESD grounding strap around your bare wrist, and connect the other end of the strap to the ESD point on the chassis.
  3. Align the holes in the front-mounting rails with the holes on the side of the chassis (see Figure 16 for ACX5448, Figure 17 for ACX5448-D, and Figure 18 for ACX5448-M).

  4. Using a Phillips (+) number 2 screwdriver and the mounting screws, secure the mounting rails to the chassis.
  5. With one person on each side, hold on to the bottom of the chassis and carefully lift it so that the mounting rails contact the rack rails.
  6. Carefully slide the chassis with the rails attached on to the rack rails (see Figure 19 for the ACX5448 router, Figure 20 for the ACX5448-D router, and Figure 21 for ACX5448-M router).

  7. Install mounting screws into each of the open front-mounting bracket holes aligned with the rack, starting from the bottom, and secure them tightly. Figure 22, Figure 23, and Figure 24show the router fully secured to the front rails of the four-post rack.

  8. On the rear of the chassis, slide the rear-mounting blades on either side of the chassis until the rear-mounting brackets at the end of the blades contact the rack rails (see Figure 25 for the ACX5448 router, Figure 26 for the ACX5448-D router, and Figure 27 for the ACX5448-M router).

    The mounting blades are movable. You can adjust the length of the blades according to the depth of the rack.

  9. Install mounting screws into each of the rear-mounting bracket holes aligned with the rack, starting from the bottom, and secure them tightly.
  10. Visually inspect the alignment of the chassis. If you’ve installed the chassis properly in the rack, all the mounting screws on one side of the rack are aligned with the mounting screws on the opposite side, and the router is level. Figure 28, Figure 29, and Figure 30 show the router fully secured and installed in a four-post rack.
