Chapter 3: Installing the Switch

Selecting a Site

Switch units can be mounted in a standard 19-inch equipment rack or on a flat surface. Be sure to follow the guidelines below when choosing a location.

The site should:

be at the center of all the devices you want to link and near a power outlet.

be able to maintain its temperature within 0 to 45 °C (32 to 113 °F) and its humidity within 10% to 90%, non-condensing

provide adequate space (approximately two inches) on all sides for proper air flow

be accessible for installing, cabling and maintaining the devices

allow the status LEDs to be clearly visible

Make sure twisted-pair cable is always routed away from power lines, fluorescent lighting fixtures and other sources of electrical interference, such as radios and transmitters.

Make sure that a separate grounded power outlet that provides 100 to 240 VAC, 50 to 60 Hz, is within 2.44 m (8 feet) of each device and is powered from an independent circuit breaker. As with any equipment, using a filter or surge suppressor is recommended.

Equipment Checklist

After unpacking the switch, check the contents to be sure you have received all the components. Then, before beginning the installation, be sure you have all other necessary installation equipment.
