Working with Environmental Guidelines for the 4300 Platform
Before you install the 4300 platform, review the following guidelines to make sure that you are installing and using the 4300 platform in the appropriate environment.
A 4300 platform is an industrial network appliance, designed to be mounted in a standard 19-inch rack. To ensure safe installation and operation of the unit:
Install the rack according to the manufacturers instructions, and check the rack for stability before placing equipment in it.
Build and position the rack so that once you install the 4300 platform, the power supply and the vents on both the front and back of the unit remain unobstructed. The 4300 platform must have adequate ventilation around the unit at all times.
Do not plug the unit into a branch circuit shared by more electronic equipment than the circuit is designed to manage safely at one time.
This product is sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). We recommend that when you install or maintain the unit you use proper ESD grounding procedures and equipment.
For permanently connected equipment, incorporate a readily accessible disconnect in the fixed wiring.
