Mounting an EX2200 Switch Using the Magnet Mount

This topic applies only to the EX2200-C switch, the compact, fanless model.

You can mount an EX2200-C switch on or under a surface made of ferrous material using the separately orderable magnet sheet.

Warning: When mounting an EX2200-C switch chassis in a vertical position, orient the front panel of the chassis downward to ensure proper airflow and meet safety requirements in the event of a fire.

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

Before mounting the switch using magnet mount:

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

  • Magnet sheet (separately orderable)
  • Flat surface made of ferrous material
  • 1 cable guard and 3 number-8 Phillips truss-head screws (optional and separately orderable) to secure the cable guard to the switch
  • 1 standard cable lock (optional and separately orderable) to secure the switch from theft by connecting the cable to the security slots on the switch
  1. Mount the switch under a ferrous surface using magnet mount:
    1. Turn the chassis upside down.
    2. Place the magnet sheet on the bottom of the chassis.

      Note: You can place the magnet sheet only at the bottom of the switch.

    3. Mount the magnet sheet along with the switch under the surface where you want to mount the switch.
  2. Mount the switch vertically on a ferrous surface using magnet mount:
    1. Place the magnet sheet at the bottom of the chassis.

      Note: You can place the magnet sheet only at the bottom of the switch.

    2. Mount the magnet along with the switch on the ferrous surface where you want to mount the switch orienting the front panel downwards as shown in Figure 41.

  3. (Optional) 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 42.

  4. (Optional) 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 43.
