Unpacking the TCX1000-RDM20

 

The TCX1000-RDM20 chassis is a rigid sheet-metal structure that houses the hardware components. The TCX1000-RDM20 is shipped in a cardboard carton, secured with foam packing material. The carton also contains an accessory kit and quick start instructions.

Caution

The TCX1000-RDM20 chassis is maximally protected inside the shipping carton. Do not unpack the TCX1000-RDM20 until you are ready to begin installation.

To unpack a TCX1000-RDM20:

  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. Remove the foam holding the TCX1000-RDM20 in place.
  5. Remove the TCX1000-RDM20 from the ESD bag.
  6. Remove the accessory kit and verify the contents against the inventory of components listed in Table 1.
  7. Save the shipping carton and packing materials in case you need to move or ship the chassis later.
