Mounting an EX-series Switch on a Rack or Cabinet
You can mount an EX-series switch
on a 19-in. or 23-in. equipment rack or cabinet by using mounting
brackets. The switch is shipped with mounting brackets and screws
to be used to secure the chassis to rack or cabinet rails.
If you are mounting multiple switches on a rack or cabinet,
mount a switch in the bottom of the rack or cabinet first and proceed
to mount the rest of the switches from bottom to top.
One person must be available to lift the switch chassis
while another secures the chassis to the rack or cabinet.
Before mounting an EX-series switch on a rack
or cabinet, you must attach mounting brackets to the switch. For instructions
on attaching mounting brackets to an EX-series switch, see Attaching Mounting Brackets to an EX-series Switch.
To mount the EX-series switch chassis
on a rack or cabinet (see Figure 27):
- Secure the mounting brackets to the chassis
by inserting screws along both the front and rear of the mounting
brackets (see Figure 26). If you are center-mounting the switch, move the mounting brackets
to the center of the chassis. For instructions on attaching mounting
brackets to an EX-series switch, see Attaching Mounting Brackets to an EX-series Switch.
- Have one person grasp both sides of the switch,
lift the switch, and position it in the rack, aligning the mounting
bracket holes with the threaded holes in the rack. Align the bottom
hole in both the mounting brackets with a hole in each rack or cabinet
rail, making sure the chassis is level.
- Insert one mounting screw (provided in the accessory
box shipped with the switch) into each of the two aligned holes. Use
a Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2 to tighten the screws to
the rack or cabinet rail.
- Insert another screw into the other hole in each
mounting bracket. Use a Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2 to
tighten the screws to the rack or cabinet rail.
- Verify that all the mounting screws on one side
of the rack or cabinet are aligned with the mounting screws on the
other side and that the switch chassis is level.
