    Installing the LN1000 Rear Transition Module

    To install the LN1000 rear transition module into a VITA 46.0-compliant chassis:

    1. Verify that you have taken the necessary antistatic precautions.
    2. On the back of the VITA 46.0-compliant chassis, choose an appropriate slot for the rear transition module.

      The LN1000 rear transition module must be installed inline behind the designated location where you plan to install the LN1000 router. For example, if the LN1000 router is to be installed in slot 3, the rear transition module must be installed in the back of the chassis in slot 3.

    3. Remove the slot filler panel from the selected node board slot, if necessary.
    4. Prepare the rear transition module by manually loosening the locking screws and opening the injector/ejector latches at the top and bottom of the rear transition module.
    5. Carefully align the edges of the module with the guides in the appropriate slot.
    6. Taking care to keep the module aligned in the guides, slide the module in until the injector/ejector latches engage in the chassis retention bars.
    7. Simultaneously push in the rear transition module and rotate the injector/ejector mechanisms inward to their closed positions to seat the midplane connectors.
    8. Tighten the module retention screws to ensure that the rear transition module is secured into the shelf.
