becoming unstable and/or falling over. The hub should be mounted in a
position toward the bottom of the rack for stability and to make it easier to
place the other hubs on top.
C a u t i o n s
Make sure that the power source circuits are properly grounded, then
use the power cord supplied with the hub to connect it to the power
If your installation requires a different power cord than the one supplied
with the hub, be sure to use a power cord displaying the mark of the
safety agency that defines the regulations for power cords in your
country. The mark is your assurance that the power cord can be used
safely with the hub.
Make sure that the HP 10/100 hub does not overload the power circuits,
wiring, and over-current protection at your site. To determine the possi-
bility of overloading the supply circuits, add together the amperage
ratings from all of the equipment installed on the same circuit as the hub
and compare the total with the rating limits for the supply circuit. The
maximum amperage ratings are usually printed on the devices near the
AC power connectors.
When installing the hub, note that the AC outlet must be installed near
the equipment and should be easily accessible.
Do not install the hub in an environment where the operating ambient
temperature might exceed 55°C (131°F).
Do not block airflow around the sides and the back of the hub.
