Rack-mounting the EPS-500 Power Supply



When you install an EPS-500 in an equipment rack, make sure that the air vents are not restricted. Allow for elevated ambient operating temperatures when the unit is installed adjacent to other equipment. To avoid hazardous conditions due to uneven mechanical loading, make sure that the equipment is mounted properly in the equipment rack.


Do not use the rack-mount brackets to suspend the EPS-500 from under a table or desk, or to attach the unit to a wall.

To rack-mount an EPS-500 in a 19-inch rack, follow these steps:

  1. Place the EPS-500 upright on a stable surface, with the side you want to face to the front of the switch toward you.
  2. Remove the mounting bracket kit from the packaging.
  3. Attach the mounting brackets as follows:
    1. Place a mounting bracket over the mounting holes on one side of the EPS-500 (see Attaching a Mounting Bracket).
    2. Insert the provided screws and fully tighten the screws using a screwdriver.

    3. Attach the mounting bracket on the opposite side of the EPS-500.
  4. Slide the EPS-500 into the rack and secure it using appropriate rack-mount screws.


    We recommend that you position the EPS-500 so that the output connectors are on the same side as the external connector on the connecting switch. If you position the EPS-500 with the connectors facing in the opposite direction from the Summit switch connector, leave at least 1 U between the switch and the EPS-500 through which to slide the power cords. Do not route the power cords around the equipment rack.
