Unpack an SSR1300

The SSR1300 is shipped in a cardboard carton and secured with foam packing material.


The SSR1300 is maximally protected inside the cardboard carton. Do not unpack it until you are ready to begin installation.

To unpack the SSR1300:

  1. Move the cardboard carton to a staging area as close to the installation site as possible, where you have enough room to remove the components from the chassis.
  2. Position the cardboard carton with the arrows pointing up.
  3. Carefully open the top of the cardboard carton.
  4. Remove the foam covering the top of the SSR1300.
  5. Verify the parts received against the list in Table 1.
  6. Store the brackets and bolts inside the accessory box.
  7. Save the shipping carton and packing materials in case you need to move or ship the appliance at a later time.

Verify Parts Received with the SSR1300

The shipment includes a packing list. Check the parts you receive in the shipping carton against the items on the packing list. The parts shipped depend on the configuration you order.

Documentation Roadmap


Install the SSR1300 in a Rack

You can install an SSR1300 appliance into a four-post rack or a cabinet.

Complete these prerequisites before you install the appliance:

Ensure that you have the Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2.


Installing the chassis in a rack requires two people: one person lifts the chassis while the other secures it to the rack.


Ensure the rear of the chassis is supported throughout the process of mounting the appliance into the rack.


Before mounting the appliance on a rack or in a cabinet, have a qualified technician verify that the rack or cabinet is strong enough to support the appliance's weight. Have the technician verify also that the rack or cabinet is adequately supported at the installation site.


If you are installing more than one appliance on a rack or in a cabinet, install the first appliance at the bottom of the rack.

To mount the SSR1300 on a four-post rack:

  1. Review the General Safety Guidelines and Warnings.
  2. Wrap and fasten one end of the electrostatic discharge (ESD) cable grounding strap around your bare wrist, and connect the other end to a site ESD point.
  3. Remove the SSR1300 from the shipping carton (see Unpack an SSR1300).
  4. Attach the front mounting brackets to the front of the chassis, using the six flat-head screws.
  5. Position the side mounting rails such that the keyholes of the side mounting rails align with the shoulder screws on the chassis. Slide and lock the side mounting rails in place and use two M3 flat-head screws to secure.

  6. Have one person grasp both sides of the SSR1300 chassis, lift it, and position it in the rack so that the front mounting bracket holes align with the threaded holes in the rack rail.

    Ensure that the rear of the device is supported while you mount the SSR1300 in the rack.

  7. While you’re holding the SSR1300 in place, have a second person insert and tighten the rack-mount screws to secure the front mounting brackets to the rack rails. Make sure to tighten the screws in the two bottom holes first and then tighten the screws in the two top holes next.

  8. Continue to support the SSR1300 in place and have the second person slide the rear mounting blades into the channels of the side mounting rails.
  9. Secure the rear mounting blades on each side of the chassis to the rack post, using rack mounting screws.
