  • Page 3: Prepare For Rack-Mount Installation

    • An adequate chassis ground (earth) connection exists for the SCE 1000 platform. • The SCE 1000 platform has at least 2 inches (5 cm) of clearance at each side and at least 5 inches (12.7 cm) of clearance at the rear to allow proper air flow.
  • Page 4: Sce 1000 Mounting Brackets

    Mounting Bracket for 4-post Racks The SCE 1000 mounts to the two front rack posts with brackets that attach to the front of the SCE 1000. The inside width between the two posts or mounting strips (left and right) must be at least 17.3 inches (44 cm).
  • Page 5: Attach The Brackets To The Sce 1000

    To install the rack-mount brackets on the SCE 1000 chassis, complete the following steps: Before installing the SCE 1000 in the rack, you must first install a rack-mount bracket on each side of the front of the SCE 1000. Align the rack-mount bracket to the side of the SCE 1000. Choose the proper bracket for your installation (2-post rack...

  • Page 10: Connecting The Power

    A Grounding kit is provided with each SCE 1000. Use this Grounding kit to properly ground the SCE 1000 chassis. When installing the unit, the chassis ground connection must always be made first and disconnected last. On the rear panel of the SCE 1000, locate the chassis grounding connector (refer to the appropriate figure for an AC- Step 1 or DC-powered SCE 1000 above).
