Rack-mount the EPS-LD Power Supply

Note

Note

When installing an EPS-LD in a rack, make sure air vents are not restricted. Allow for elevated ambient operating temperatures when the EPS-LD is installed adjacent to other equipment. Be sure you mount the equipment in the rack so that the load is evenly distributed.

To rack-mount each EPS-LD unit in a 19-inch rack:

  1. Place the EPS-LD unit 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 unit (see the figure below).
    2. Insert the provided screws and fully tighten them using a screwdriver.

  4. Slide the EPS-LD into the rack and secure it using appropriate rack-mount screws.
    Note

    Note

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