Unpacking and Mounting the NFX350
Unpacking an NFX350 Device
The NFX350 devices are shipped in a cardboard carton, secured with foam packing material. The carton has an accessory compartment and contains the quick start instructions.
NFX350 devices are maximally protected inside the shipping carton. Do not unpack the devices until you are ready to begin installation.
To unpack the device:
- Open the carton.
- Pull out the packing material holding the device in place.
- Verify the parts received against the inventory on the label attached to the carton. See Parts Inventory (Packing List) for an NFX350 Device.
- Save the shipping carton and packing materials in case you need to move or ship the device later.

Mounting an NFX350 Device
Table 2 lists the methods you can use to mount an NFX350 device.
Table 2: NFX350 Device Mounting Methods
Four-post rack or cabinet
On four posts in a rack or cabinet by using the mounting brackets.
The holes in the mounting brackets are placed at 1 U (1.75 in. or 4.45 cm) apart so that the device can be mounted in any rack or cabinet that provides holes spaced at that distance.
Mounting an NFX350 Device on Four Posts in a Rack or Cabinet
You can mount an NFX350 device on four posts of a 19-in. rack or cabinet by using the four-post rack-mount kit. (The remainder of this topic uses rack to mean rack or cabinet.).
You can mount the device a four-post rack by using the mounting brackets provided with the device.
When you are mounting the device on four posts, ensure that the rack is 21.5 in. through 31.5 in. deep if you will mount the device flush with the rack front and that the rack is 23.5 in. through 32.5 in. deep if you will mount the device 2 in. recessed from the rack front, thus ensuring that the protective earthing terminal is accessible through the opening in the rear mounting-blade.
Before mounting the device on four posts in a rack:
Place the rack in its permanent location, allowing adequate clearance for airflow and maintenance, and secure it to the building structure.
Remove the device from the shipping carton (see Unpacking and Mounting the NFX350 ).
Have two persons available to mount the device. One person will support the device in a level position, and the second person will secure the device to the rack.
Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:
Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2
6 flat-head 4-40 mounting screws (provided with the four-post rack-mount kit)
12 flat-head M4x6-mm Phillips mounting screws (provided with the four-post rack-mount kit)
One pair each of flush or 2-in.-recess front-mounting brackets (provided with the four-post rack-mount kit)
One pair of side-mounting rails (provided with the four-post rack-mount kit)
One pair of rear-mounting blades (provided with the four-post rack-mount kit)
Screws to secure the chassis to the rack (not provided)
If you are mounting multiple units on a rack, mount the heaviest unit at the bottom of the rack and mount the other units from the bottom of the rack to the top in decreasing order of the weight of the units.
To mount the device on four posts in a rack:
- Place the device on a flat, stable surface.
- Attach the front-mounting brackets (either the flush or the 2-in.-recess front-mounting brackets) to the side mounting rails by using the six 4-40 flat-head Phillips mounting screws. See Figure 1.
- Align a front bracket (either flush with the front of
the chassis or 2-in.-recessed from the front of the chassis) along
the side panel of the device chassis. Align the two holes in the front
of the brackets with the two holes on the front of the side panel.
Each side of the chassis has twelve holes for attaching the front-mounting brackets to the device.
Six holes on the chassis side align with six holes in the front bracket when the front bracket is mounted flush with the chassis front or recessed 2 in. from the front of the chassis.
- Insert M4x6-mm Phillips flat-head mounting screws into the two aligned holes and tighten the screws. Ensure that the remaining two holes in the front bracket are aligned with the two holes in the side panel. See Figure 2.
- Insert M4x6-mm Phillips flat-head mounting screws into the remaining two holes in the front bracket and tighten the screws.
- Repeat steps 2 through 4 for attaching the front bracket to the other side of the chassis.
- Have one person grasp both sides of the device, lift the device, and position it in the rack, aligning the front bracket holes with the threaded holes in the front post of the rack. Align the bottom hole in both the front-mounting brackets with a hole in each rack rail, making sure the chassis is level. See Figure 3 and Figure 4.
- Have a second person secure the front of the device to the rack by using the appropriate screws for your rack.
- Slide the rear mounting-blades into the front-mounting brackets.
- Attach the rear mounting-blades to the rear post by using the appropriate screws for your rack. Tighten the screws.
- Ensure that the device chassis is level by verifying that all the screws on the front of the rack are aligned with the screws at the back of the rack. See Figure 5.
