Mounting the LN2600 Router on the Rack

 

You can mount the LN2600 router on four posts of a standard 19 in. rack. The rack-mounting kit comes with heat sink unit that provides enhanced cooling to the LN2600 router.

A 19 in. rack is defined in Cabinets, Racks, Panels, and Associated Equipment (document number EIA-310-D) published by the Electronics Industry Association (http://www.eia.org).

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

  • Phillips (+) screwdriver with a minimum shaft length of 6 inches (150 mm)

  • T10 Torx and 7-mm nut driver

  • An electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap

  • Mounting brackets, mounting screws, heat sink unit, and matching screws provided with the rack-mounting kit

  • Ground label and ground lug provided with the rack-mounting kit

To mount the LN2600 router on the 19 in. rack:

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  2. Keep the LN2600 router on a horizontal surface near the rack.
  3. Attach the heat sink unit provided with the rack-mounting kit to the rear side of the LN2600 router, and secure it with eight heat sink screws.

  5. Attach the two thumb screws to the sides of the LN2600 router and secure it with two screws.
  6. On the rear side of the LN2600 router, place the grounding cable lug over the grounding points, and secure the grounding cable lug to the grounding points, first with the washers, then with the screws.

  7. On the front side of the two rack rails, insert four cage nuts in the holes specified for mounting the router. Install the cage nuts from the front of the front rail.

    The rack-mounting kit comes with cage nuts to support mounting the LN2600 router into the racks with square hole mounting flanges.

    Note

    For effective cooling in the rack-mount configuration, ensure that you have a minimum of 2 U (3.5 in) space above the router.

  8. Slide the LN2600 router from the front side of the rack rails until it touches the rear side of the rack rails. Ensure that the router sits properly on the rack.
  9. Secure the LN2600 router from the front side with the rack screws.
  10. On the rear side of the two rack rails, insert four cage nuts in the holes specified for mounting the router. Install the cage nuts from the front of the back rail.Note

    Make sure that the two front cage nuts and the two back cage nuts are at the same level.

  11. Slide rear support brackets onto rear left and right side flanges of the LN2600 router, and secure it to the rear side of the rack mounting rails with bracket screws.
  12. Secure the rear support brackets to the four rear cage nuts with screws.

The LN2600 router is now ready for use. Connect the power supply and cabling as required.
