Providing Adequate Space for the Rack

Provide enough space in front of and behind the switch so that you can service it easily.

Allow a minimum of 48 inches (122 cm) in front of the rack and 30 inches (76 cm) behind the rack. When using a relay (two-post) rack, provide a minimum of 24 inches (61 cm) of space behind the mounted equipment. Extra room on each side is optional.

Warning

Extreme Networks switches do not have a switch for turning power to the unit on and off. For systems using an AC power supply, power to the switch is disconnected by removing the wall plug from the electrical outlet.

Warning

The DC-powered switches include the following models:
  • Summit X450a-24tDC, X450a-24xDC, and X450a-48tDC
  • Summit X460, X480, and X650 series switches with installed DC power supplies

For these switches and the EPS-150DC power supply, turn off power to the chassis by de-energizing the circuit that feeds the power supply. This is usually accomplished by turning off a circuit breaker. Disconnecting the DC power cable from the DC power source must be done by a qualified, licensed electrician.
