DCS-200 • User's Guide
When rack mounting the unit, remember that the maximum ambient operating
temperature for the unit is 40 degrees C.
Leave sufficient front and rear space to ensure that the airflow through the fan and
vent holes is not restricted.
When installing equipment into a rack, distribute the units evenly to prevent
hazardous conditions that may be created by uneven weight distribution.
Connect the unit only to a properly rated supply circuit.
Reliable grounding (earthing) of rack-mounted equipment should be maintained.
Rack mount the unit from the front rack ears using four rack screws (not supplied).
Rack threads may be metric or otherwise — depending upon the rack type.
Install the lower of the two mounting holes first.
Connect an AC power cord to the AC Power Connector on the rear of the
DCS-200, and then to an AC outlet.
Connect AC Power cords (or AC adapters) to all peripheral equipment, such as
video sources, VTRs and PCs. Please note:
Connect each unit only to a properly rated supply circuit.
Reliable grounding of rack-mounted equipment should be maintained.
