When you install your device in a rack, make sure you consider these factors:
Elevated Operating Ambient Temperature
If you install the device in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater than room ambient. Make sure the ambient temperature of the rack environment is within the certified operating range specified in this Hardware Guide.
Reduced Air Flow
When you install the device in a rack, make sure that the amount of air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.
When you mount the device in the rack, avoid hazardous conditions caused by uneven mechanical loading.
Make sure you connect the device to the power supply circuit in such a way that there is no overloading of the circuits, and no impact on overcurrent protection and supply wiring.
Make sure all rack-mounted equipment is correctly grounded. For example, make sure you use power strips instead of direct connections to the branch circuit.
