Securing the Chassis
This chapter describes how to secure the Cisco NCS 4016 chassis in the rack.
Note
To install two Cisco NCS 4016 chassis in a single rack, you will need to have a minimum vertical opening
of 48 RU. If you are using the DC Power Front Connection Adapter, only one chassis will fit into the rack.
Preparing the Rack for Chassis Installation
Install the Cisco NCS 4016 chassis into one of the following standard racks:
• ANSI 19-inch or 23-inch (2- or 4-post)
• ETSI
Note
For the ANSI 19-inch rack, the minimum front opening must be 17.72 inches (450 mm) to allow for chassis
insertion.
If you are installing a single chassis in a rack, the chassis must go in the middle or bottom portion of the rack
or follow your company chassis mounting practices.
Note
At the bottom of the rack, keep 1 rack unit free to allow for removal of the bottom fan tray.
To bolt the rack to the floor, a floor bolt kit (also called an anchor embedment kit ) is required. For information
on bolting the rack to the floor, consult a company that specializes in floor mounting kits (such as Hilti; see
Hilti.com for details). Make sure that floor mounting bolts are accessible, especially if annual re-torquing of
bolts is required.

  • Page 2: Summary Steps

    Before you move the chassis or mount the chassis into the rack, we recommend that you do the following: SUMMARY STEPS 1. Place the rack where you plan to install the Cisco NCS 4016 chassis. 2. Secure the rack to the floor.

    Identify the position of the chassis inside the rack to define the aid brackets position. Required Tools and Equipment • Number 1 Phillips screwdriver • Cisco NCS 4016 installation kit (NCS4K-INST-KIT=) Steps SUMMARY STEPS 1. Attach the aid brackets to the rack below where the chassis will sit. Tighten the two screws to firmly attach the brackets to the rack.
  • Page 9 Securing the Chassis Installing the Aid Brackets Figure 7: Attaching Aid Brackets to the Rack Step 2 Once the chassis has been installed, remove the aid brackets. Loosen the two screws from the aid brackets and take off the rack. Keep the aid brackets in case of future chassis relocation.
  • Page 10 Securing the Chassis Removing the Chassis Door What to do next To accommodate equipment racks with different mounting hole patterns, the aid brackets have groups of screw holes on either side. The mounting holes in the aid brackets are spaced so that one mounting hole in each hole group aligns with a corresponding hole in the equipment rack.
