Uninstalling the ACX6160

Removing an ACX6160 from a Rack or Cabinet

Before removing an ACX6160 from a rack:

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

  • A Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2 or number 3, depending on the size of your rack mounting screws.

If you need to relocate an installed ACX6160, use the procedure described in this topic. (The remainder of this topic uses “rack” to mean “rack or cabinet.” )


When you remove multiple devices from a rack, remove the device at the top of the rack first and proceed to remove the rest of the devices from top to bottom.

To remove an ACX6160 from a rack:

  1. Have one person support the weight of the ACX6160 while another person uses the screwdriver to remove the front-mounting screws that attach the mounting rails to the rack.
  2. Use the screwdriver to remove the mounting screws that attach the mounting blades attached to the rear of the rack. Slide out the mounting rail.
  3. Remove the ACX6160 from the rack.
  4. Place the removed screws and rear-mounting blades in a labeled bag. You will need them when you reinstall the chassis.
  5. Transport the ACX6160 to your desired new location.
