When the product is
installed in a rack:
a) Elevated operating ambient temperature
If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly,
the operating ambient temperature of the rack
environment may be greater than room ambient.
Therefore, consideration should be given to
installing the equipment in an environment
compatible with the manufacturer's maximum rated
ambient temperature of 0 to +35°C (32 to 95°F)
b) Reduced air flow
Installation of the equipment in a rack should be
such that the amount of air flow required for safe
operation of the equipment is not compromised.
c) Mechanical loading
Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be
such that a hazardous condition is not achieved due
to uneven mechanical loading.
d) Circuit overloading
Consideration should be given to the connection of
the equipment to the supply circuit and the effect
that overloading of circuits might have on
overcurrent protection and supply wiring.
Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate
ratings should be used when addressing this
e) Reliable earthing
Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment
should be maintained. Particular attention should be
given to supply connections other than direct
connections to the branch circuit (e.g., use of power
f) Gap keeping
The upper and lower gaps of rack-mounted
equipment should be least 44 mm (1
