Rack guidelines

Ensure that you comply with the following rack installation guidelines:

  • Anchor the equipment rack

    The equipment rack must be anchored to an unmovable support to prevent it from falling over. The rack can fall when one or more units are extended in front of the rack on the slides. You must also consider the weight of any other device that is installed in the rack. A crush hazard exists and can cause serious injury should the rack tilt forward.

  • Check temperature

    When the devices are installed in an equipment rack, the temperature must be in the range of 5C (41F) to 40C (104F). Extreme fluctuations in temperature can cause a variety of problems for the appliance.

  • Check ventilation

    The equipment rack must provide sufficient airflow to the front of the devices to maintain proper cooling. The rack must also include ventilation sufficient to exhaust a maximum of 2550 BTUs (British Thermal Units) per hour for the appliance. The rack that is selected and the ventilation that is provided must be suitable to the environment in which the equipment is used.

  • Main AC power must be accessible

    The AC power cord(s) is considered the main disconnect for the device and must be readily accessible when installed. If the individual power cord(s) are not readily accessible for disconnection, you must install an AC power disconnect for the entire rack unit. This main disconnect must be readily accessible, and it must be labeled as controlling power to the entire rack unit.

  • Grounding the rack installation

    To avoid the potential for an electrical shock hazard, you must include a third wire safety ground conductor with the rack installation. The rack itself must have a proper grounding when device power cords are plugged into the AC outlet of the rack. The devices must be plugged into a properly grounded AC outlet.

  • Overcurrent protection

    The power supplies contain internal overcurrent protection. If power draw increases, the power supplies shutdown. Hardware monitoring utilities such as the NetBackup Appliance Web Console show alerts that indicate problems in the power supply.
