  • Page 27: Enclosure Chassis

    Important: To ensure correct airflow and cooling, all PSU bays and cooling module bays must contain a functioning unit. If the enclosure is run with a single SBB I/O module, the other I/O module bay must be filled with a blank module. Each row of drive bays must be completely empty or completely full. Figure 7.
  • Page 28: Disk Drives In Carriers (Ddics)

    v The drawer locks into place when opened all the way. To reduce pinching hazards, two latches must be released before the drawer can be pushed back in. Power and data are sent via three baseplanes and two sideplanes. Each drawer can be locked shut by turning both anti-tamper locks clockwise using a screwdriver with a Torx T20 bit (see Figure 7 on page 11).

    Figure 17. Rear enclosure mounting 3. The sliding nut head must always face away from the enclosure, whichever configuration is used. CAUTION: Use only the power cords supplied or cords that match the specification in Appendix B, "AC power cords." CAUTION: After the enclosure is installed in the rack, dispose of the lifting straps.
  • Page 39: Grounding Checks

    Important: When more than one PSU is fitted, connect each PSU to separate and independent supplies to guarantee redundancy. CAUTION: Always remove the power connections before you remove the PSU from the enclosure. DANGER: Multiple power cords. The product might be equipped with multiple power cords. To remove all hazardous voltages, disconnect all power cords.
  • Page 40 v All the supplied plug-in modules must be in place for the air to flow correctly around the enclosure and also to complete the internal circuitry. Each row of drive bays must be completely empty or completely full. v If the enclosure system is used with modules missing for more than a few minutes, the enclosure can overheat, causing power failure and data loss.
