Mount an NFX150-S1 Device on Two Posts of a Rack

To mount an NFX150-S1 device on a rack, you require the parts that are shipped with the device along with the following additional parts and equipment. These are not shipped with the device.

You can mount an NFX150-S1 device on two posts of a 19-in. rack by using the mounting brackets provided with the device. To install NFX150-S1 on two posts of a 23-in. rack, you need additional mounting brackets.

Note: The device weighs approximately 13 lb (5.9 kg). Two persons are required for mounting the device.

Note: Ensure that the rack is in its permanent location, allowing adequate clearance for airflow and maintenance, and secured to the building structure.

Note: If you are mounting multiple units in the rack, mount the heaviest unit at the bottom and mount the other units from bottom to top in the order of decreasing weight.

Caution: Wrap and fasten one end of the ESD grounding strap around your wrist and connect the other end to a site ESD point.

To mount the device on a rack:

  1. Align the mounting brackets along the front or rear of the side panels of the chassis— depending on whether you will front-mount or rear-mount the device—and attach the mounting brackets to the chassis by using the mounting bracket screws. Tighten the screws.
  2. Have one person grasp both sides of the device, lift the device, and position it in the rack, aligning the mounting bracket holes with the threaded holes in the rack rail. Align the bottom hole in each mounting bracket with a hole in each rack rail, making sure that the chassis is level.
