    HP 10000 Ballast Option Kit Ballast plates add weight to a rack and therefore improve side-to-side and front-to-back mechanical stability for stand-alone racks or a row of three or fewer racks bayed together. Ballast plates fit in the zero-U space at the interior sides of the rack and should be installed into the rack prior to installation of any other equipment.

  • Page 21: Power Considerations

    Power considerations Power is best managed within the rack by the use of a power distribution unit (PDU). Depending on the configuration, it may be necessary or desirable to use multiple PDUs to connect all devices inside the rack. Each PDU should be connected to a dedicated (unshared) branch circuit that is suitably rated for the continuous load of all the equipment connected to it.

  • Page 24: Front Door Clearance

    Front door clearance When racks are bayed together, the design of the front door limits the extent to which the rack door on the right may open. If there is insufficient space to allow for the necessary work, open the door on the Left side or remove the door from the rack receiving service.

    Site preparation for receiving Integrated Racks To determine if a configured rack is suitable for shipment, be sure to examine the receiving facility site conditions. Circumstances requiring special handling of the rack, such as inadequate door height clearance or having to move the rack in a horizontal orientation, may justify a decision to install components after the moving process.

    Figure 19. Sample shipping declaration The "place and date" of shipment must be entered by the shipper (the "person" who offers the freight to the carrier). The shipper must offer a minimum of two signed copies (our internal standard is four) of the completed Shipper's Declarations for Dangerous Goods to the carrier, usually along with the Air Waybill.

    Center the rack on the pallet, and position the hold-down brackets with bolts and lock washers and load spreader plate into the threaded holes in the pallet deck. Figure 23. Positioning the hold-down brackets Place a metal shipping bracket and load spreader plate under each leveling foot. Extend all four leveling feet until they just short of touching the top surface of the brackets.

  • Page 39

    Tighten the bolts in the four hold-down brackets to 150 in-lb (16.9455 N-m) to secure the hold- down brackets to the pallet. Use a 9/16-in (14 mm) open-end wrench. The hold-down brackets should be angled up off the pallet deck holding the leveling feet in tension. See Figure 24. Figure 25.

    Close and lock both doors. Figure 26. Closing the rack doors NOTE Before locking the rack doors, all servers and other equipment should be installed in the rack. Only equipment certified to ship in the 10000 Series Racks should be installed at this time. Equipment not yet certified to ship in the 10000 Series Racks should be installed on-site at the final destination to prevent damage to equipment while the rack is in transit.
