Rack System Warnings

The following warnings apply to Racks and Rack Mounted systems.


Caution

Caution  -  For safety, equipment should always be loaded from the bottom up. That is, install the equipment that will be mounted in the lowest part of the rack first, then the next higher systems, etc.



Caution

Caution  -  To prevent the rack from tipping during equipment installation, the anti-tilt bar on the rack must be deployed.



Caution

Caution  -  To prevent extreme operating temperature within the rack insure that the maximum temperature does not exceed the product's ambient rated temperatures.



Caution

Caution  -  To prevent extreme operating temperatures due to reduced airflow consideration should be made to the amount of air flow that is required for a safe operation of the equipment.



Caution

Caution  -  Take adequate precautions when moving a rack or library that contains rack-installed equipment. The weight of some rack equipment may have altered the rack or library center of gravity and could cause an overbalance/tip condition during a move.



Caution

Caution  -  For tape libraries, ensure that the equipment to be installed in the rack has UL Listing, CSA or C-UL Certification, and is CE marked.
