Install the JCS 1200 Platform Without a Mechanical Lift

Because of the JCS 1200 platform's size and weight—up to 350 lb (158.8 kg) depending on the configuration—we strongly recommend that you install the JCS 1200 platform using a mechanical lift, as described in Install the JCS 1200 Platform Using a Lift. If you do not use a lift to install the platform, refer to the following procedures:

  1. Remove Components from the JCS 1200 Platform
  2. Lift the JCS 1200 Platform into the Rack or Cabinet
  3. Reinstall Components into the JCS 1200 Platform

Remove Components from the JCS 1200 Platform

Before lifting the JCS 1200 platform, you must remove the following components:

Note: For detailed instructions on removing JCS 1200 components, see the JCS 1200 Platform Hardware Guide.

To remove the components from the JCS 1200 platform:

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see the JCS 1200 Platform Hardware Guide.
  2. Slide each component out of the chassis evenly so that it does not become stuck or damaged.
  3. Label each component as you remove it so you can reinstall it in the correct location.
  4. Immediately store each removed component in an electrostatic bag.
  5. Do not stack removed components. Lay each one on a flat surface.

Lift the JCS 1200 Platform into the Rack or Cabinet

Lifting the chassis and mounting it in a rack requires four people. The empty chassis weighs approximately 229 lb (99.82 kg).

  1. Ensure the rack is in its permanent location and is secured to the building.
  2. Position the JCS 1200 platform in front of the rack or cabinet, centering it in front of the mounting shelves. Use a pallet jack if one is available.
  3. With two people in the front and two people in the back, hold onto the bottom of the chassis and carefully lift it onto the mounting shelves.
  4. Carefully slide the JCS 1200 platform onto the mounting shelves so that the bottom of the chassis and the mounting shelves overlap by approximately 2 in.
  5. Install a mounting screw into each of the open mounting holes in the rack-mounting flanges to fasten the chassis to the rack, starting from the bottom.
  6. Visually inspect the alignment of the JCS 1200 platform. If the JCS 1200 platform is installed properly in the rack, all the mounting screws on one side of the rack should be aligned with the mounting screws on the opposite side, and the platform should be level.

Reinstall Components into the JCS 1200 Platform

Note: For detailed instructions on reinstalling JCS 1200 components, see the JCS 1200 Platform Hardware Guide.

To reinstall components:

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see the JCS 1200 Platform Hardware Guide.
  2. Slide each component into the chassis evenly so that it does not become stuck or damaged.
  3. Tighten screws, as needed, for each component.

Note: Make sure that all empty slots are covered with a blank panel before operating the JCS 1200 platform.
