  • Page 12: Rack Mounting

    NOTE: Power Supplies and Fan Modules are field replaceable units. Dell Networking does not support a mix of power supply types (such as, AC and DC) in the same switch. If a power supply is added or replaced, it MUST match the existing type of power supply (such as, AC and AC or DC and DC).
  • Page 13: Storing Components

    Storing Components If you do not install your S4810–ON and components immediately, Dell Networking recommends properly storing the system and all optional components until you are ready to install them. WARNING: ESD damage can occur when components are mishandled. Always wear an ESD- preventive wrist or heel ground strap when handling the S4810–ON and its accessories.

    The brackets are sent in a package with the system. NOTE: Dell Networking recommends attaching the brackets at the power supply unit (PSU) side. This set up provides the greatest weight support for the chassis in the rack or cabinet.
  • Page 16: Installing The System Into A Two-Post Rack Or Cabinet

    To attach the brackets to the system, follow these steps. Take the brackets and screws out of their packaging. Attach the brackets to the PSU sides of the system using four screws for each bracket. Attach the bracket so that the “ear” is parallel to the PSU and the outside of the system. Figure 4.

  • Page 19: Attaching The Ground Cable

    To attach the ground cable to the chassis, use a single M4x0.7 screw. The cable itself is not included with the S4810–ON. To properly ground the chassis, Dell Networking recommends using a 6AWG one-hole lug, #10 hole size, 63" spacing (not included in shipping). The one- hole lug must be a UL recognized, crimp-type lug.
  • Page 20: Installing The Sfp+ And Qsfp+ Optics

    Attach the one-hole lug to the chassis using the supplied 10-32 screw with the captive internal tooth lock washer. Torque the screw to 20 in-lbs. Figure 8. Attaching the Ground Cable Lug hole Ground Screw Attach the other end of the ground cable to a suitable ground point. The rack installation ears are not a suitable grounding point.

    PSU and the status LED is at the top of the PSU (refer to the following illustrations). NOTE: If you use a single PSU, you must install a blank plate in the other PSU slot. Dell Networking recommends using power supply 1 (PSU1) as the blank plate slot.
  • Page 27: Fans

    Fans The S4810–ON comes from the factory with one power supply unit (PSU) and two fan modules installed in the system. If two or more fans are installed and running, the fan modules are hot-swappable. NOTE: To run the system, both slots must have operating fan units. If a module is not installed in each slot (either as part of the PSU or as an independent fan module), the system shuts down in one minute.
