Unpacking and Mounting the OCX1100 Switch

 

Unpacking an OCX1100 Switch

OCX1100 switches are shipped in a cardboard carton, secured with foam packing material. The carton has an accessory compartment and contains the quick start instructions.

Caution

OCX1100 switches are maximally protected inside the shipping carton. Do not unpack the switches until you are ready to begin installation.

To unpack the switch:

  1. Move the shipping carton to a staging area as close to the installation site as possible, but where you have enough room to remove the system components.
  2. Position the carton so that the arrows are pointing up.
  3. Open the top flaps on the shipping carton.
  4. Pull out the packing material holding the switch in place.
  5. Verify the parts received against the inventory on the label attached to the carton. See Parts Inventory (Packing List) for an OCX1100 Switch.
  6. Save the shipping carton and packing materials in case you need to move or ship the switch later.

Parts Inventory (Packing List) for an OCX1100 Switch

The switch shipment includes a packing list. Check the parts you receive with the switch against the items on the packing list.

Mounting an OCX1100 Switch

You can mount an OCX1100 switch:

  • On a desk or other level surface by using the rubber feet provided with the switch.

  • On four posts of a 19-in. rack or a 19-in. cabinet by using the mounting brackets provided with the switch.

The holes in the mounting brackets are placed at 1 U (1.75 in. or 4.45 cm) apart so that the switch can be mounted in any rack or cabinet that provides holes spaced at that distance.

Mounting an OCX1100 Switch on a Desk or Other Level Surface

You can mount an OCX1100 switch on a desk or other level surface by using the four rubber feet that are shipped with the switch. The rubber feet stabilize the chassis.

Before mounting the switch on a desk or other level surface:

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

  • Four rubber feet to stabilize the chassis on the a desk or other level surface (provided in the accessory box in the switch carton)

To mount a switch on a desk or other level surface:

  1. Remove the switch from the shipping carton (see Unpacking an OCX1100 Switch).
  2. Turn the chassis upside down on the desk or the level surface where you intend to mount the switch.
  3. Attach the rubber feet to the bottom of the chassis, as shown in Figure 1.
  4. Turn the chassis right side up on the desk or the level surface.

Mounting an OCX1100 Switch on Four Posts of a Rack or Cabinet

You can mount an OCX1100 switch on four posts of a 19-in. rack or a 19-in. cabinet by using the mounting brackets provided with the switch. (The remainder of this topic uses rack to mean rack or cabinet.)

Before mounting the switch on four posts of a rack:

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

  • Phillips (+) screwdriver (not provided)

  • Eight Phillips-head front rack-mounting bracket screws (provided)

  • Eight rack-mounting screws to secure the front rack-mounting brackets and the rack-mounting slider brackets to the chassis (not provided)

  • One pair of front rack-mounting brackets (provided)

  • One pair of rack-mounting slider brackets (provided)

Note

One person must be available to lift the switch while another secures it to the rack.

Caution

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 switch on four posts of a rack:

  1. Place the switch on a flat, stable surface.
  2. Align the holes on the front rack-mounting brackets with the screw holes on the side of the chassis and attach the front rack-mounting brackets to the switch by using the front rack-mounting bracket screws. See Figure 2.

  3. Align the holes on the rack-mounting slider brackets with the screw holes on the back of the rack posts.
  4. Attach the rack-mounting slider brackets to the rack posts by using appropriate rack-mounting screws. Tighten the screws by using a screwdriver. See Figure 3.Note

    The ears of the rack-mounting slider brackets must be facing backward and outward.

  5. Position the switch so that the rack-mounting slider brackets align horizontally within the two rows of rack-mounting slider bracket pegs located on the side panel of the switch.
  6. Slide the switch into the rack-mounting slider brackets so that the brackets fit into the space between the two rows of rack-mounting slider pegs of the switch.
  7. Have a second person secure the front rack-mounting brackets to the front of the rack posts by using appropriate rack-mounting screws. Tighten the screws by using a screwdriver. See Figure 4.

  8. Ensure that the switch 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.
Note

We recommend that you install cover panels in unused fan modules and power supply slots.
