Removing a TCX1000-RDM20 from a Rack or Cabinet
If you need to remove a TCX1000-RDM20 to return it or relocate an installed TCX1000-RDM20, perform the following procedure. (The remainder of this topic uses rack to mean rack or cabinet.)
When you remove multiple devices from a rack, remove the device in the top of the rack first and proceed to remove the rest of the devices from top to bottom to avoid toppling the rack.
This procedure requires two persons. Do not attempt to do it alone.
