  • Allow sufficient space of 6 inches all around the switch for cooling. Insufficient space can lead to overheating of the switch chassis.

  • The ferrous wall on which the switch will be mounted shall be flat and the surface shall be without any undulation. The ferrous wall shall be well supported and strong enough to support the switch.

To mount the switch on a surface made of ferrous material:

  1. Attach the power adaptor to the power adaptor tray. See Attaching the Power Adaptor to the Power Adaptor Tray.
  2. Turn the chassis upside down.
  3. Use the Phillips (+) screwdriver (number 2) to assemble the magnet tray on the bottom side of the switch by using six M3 screws. In the following figure, the magnet tray and magnet tray being assembled on the bottom side of the switch using the screws is shown.
