Mounting an EX2200 Switch on a Desk or Other Level Surface

You can mount an EX2200 switch on a desk or other level surface by using the four rubber feet that are shipped with the switch. The rubber feet stabilize the chassis.

Before mounting the switch on a desk or other level surface:

Note: Do not block the vents on the top of the EX2200-C switches. Doing this can lead to overheating of the switch chassis.

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

  • 4 rubber feet to stabilize the chassis on the a desk or other level surface (provided in the accessory box in the switch carton)
  • 1 cable guard and 3 number-8 Phillips truss-head screws (optional and separately orderable) to secure the cable guard to the EX2200-C switch
  • 1 standard cable lock (optional and separately orderable) to secure the EX2200-C switch models only from theft by connecting the cable to the security slots on the switch

To mount a switch on a desk or other level surface:

  1. Remove the switch from the shipping carton (see Unpacking an EX2200 Switch).
  2. Turn the chassis upside down on the desk or the level surface where you intend to mount the switch.
  3. Attach the rubber feet to the bottom of the chassis, as shown in Figure 21.
  4. Turn the chassis right side up on the desk or the level surface.

  5. (Optional; applies only to EX2200-C models) Attach the cable guard to protect cable connections:
    1. Use the 3 truss-head screws to attach the cable guard to the bottom of the chassis.
    2. Use the thumbscrews to tighten or loosen the guard to allow you to insert cables. See Figure 22.

  6. (Optional; applies only to EX2200-C models) Attach the standard cable lock to the security slots on the both sides of the switch:
    1. Rope the cable to a desk or a rack and set the lock to unlocked position.
    2. Insert the lock into one of the security slot on your chassis and set the lock to the locked position. See Figure 23.
