    General Site Guidelines for the NSM4000 Appliance

    The following precautions can help you plan an acceptable operating environment for your NSM4000 appliance and avoid environmentally caused equipment failures:

    • Keep the area around the chassis free from dust and conductive material, such as metal flakes.
    • For the cooling system to function properly, the airflow around the chassis must be unrestricted. Allow sufficient clearance between the front and back of the chassis and adjacent equipment. Ensure that there is adequate circulation in the installation location.
    • Follow the electrostatic discharge (ESD) procedures to avoid damaging the equipment. Static discharge can cause components to fail, either completely or intermittently over time.

    Note: Install the appliance only in restricted areas, such as dedicated equipment rooms and equipment closets, in accordance with Articles 110–16, 110–17, and 110–18 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70.
