Sliding rail assembly for Model X404L
2a.
Inner rail frame
1 per sliding rail assembly
The inner frame (or inner rail) has an outer safety lock (see step 2c.) for securing it to the outer rail frame assembly. This rail is attached to the appliance.
2b.
Outer rail frame assembly
1 per sliding rail assembly
The outer frame assembly consists of two heavy-gauge rail frames (center rail and outer rail) attached to each other. Each frame incorporates a ball-bearing slide. One frame attaches and allows extension of the two frames with each other. One frame attaches and allows extension of the inner rail frame with the center rail. The rail assembly has an inner safety lock (see step 4). This assembly, with two L-shaped brackets, is attached to the rack.

Mount the Hardware Appliance in a Rack
With the provided equipment, you can mount the appliance into a standard rack.
  1. Remove the two rail assemblies from their packaging.

    Model 404L rail assembly, inner side up
  2. Separate the inner rail frame from the outer and center rail frames on each of the two assemblies:
    1. Place one rail assembly as shown:
      Model X404L closed frame assembly, inner side up
      Model 404L closed frame assembly, inner side up
    2. Slide the inner rail frame all the way to the left. The frame stops at about half its length:
      Model X404L Inner rail extended to left, inner side up
      Model 404L inner rail extended to left, inner side up
    3. Turn the assembly upside down so that its outer side is visible as shown here:
      Model X404L inner rail extended to left, outer side up, with arrow
      Model 404L inner rail that is extended to left, outer side up, with arrow
    4. Press down the outer safety lock tab (indicated by the arrow), and – holding the tab down – pull the inner rail frame firmly to the left so that it is removed.

    5. Repeat this inner rail frame separation with the other rail assembly.
  3. Attach the inner rail frames and ear brackets to the appliance chassis
    1. Align the three indicated mounting holes of the inner rail to the screw holes on the chassis frame with the outer safety lock tab facing out and the notched end of the rail that is located at the rear of the unit. (These are connected by vertical dashed lines in the figure.) Attach it to the appliance using three of the short flat-head screws.
    2. Attach one of the two front ear brackets to the chassis using the small black screws provided in the ear bracket package.
      The two attached parts should now appear as in this diagram:
    3. Repeat these steps to attach the other inner rail and front ear bracket to the other side. Model X404L inner rail and Ear bracket attachment to appliance chassis

      The L-shaped brackets secure the outer rail frame assembly to the rack. Attach these brackets to the outer rail assemblies first, before attaching the combination to the rack.
  4. Attach two L-shaped brackets to each of the two outer frame assemblies:
    1. On one outer rail assembly, attach an L-shaped bracket at each end:
      Front bracket
      : Close the outer rail assembly so that the center rail frame is lined up or flush with the outer rail frame. Slide the inner ball bearing assembly all the way to the right to expose four oval holes on the left.

      Locate an L-shaped bracket so that the curved edge on the bracket wraps around the outer rail assembly outer frame (when held up on its side edge as shown), and the left end of the bracket points down toward you.

      Insert a long flat head screw (see Package Contents Table, Item 4a) through the first oval hole on the inner frame of the frame assembly, through to the outer frame, then through the L-shaped bracket long groove, and finally attach (but not tighten) a nut (see Package Contents Table, Item 4b) to the end of the screw. Repeat this with a second screw and nut through another pair of rail holes. (The third or fourth hole pair provides the best support. The additional two hole pairs are intended for alternative equipment that is not used here.)
      Do not tighten the nuts yet because you need to adjust the location of the brackets when you mount the bracket-rail assembly to the rack.

      Rear bracket
      : Slide the outer rail away all the way to the right so that the inner safety lock snaps in place, exposing the screw holes on the outer rail:

      Attach the second L-shaped bracket to the other end of the outer rail with two long flat head screws, one through the first or second oval hole (Figure 176) from the center, and one through the third oval hole near the end.

    2. Repeat these steps to attach the other two L-shaped brackets to the other outer rail assembly. When you turn the assembly around so that its outer edge faces you, it should appear with the brackets loosely mounted (for now):
      Model X304L: Outer and center rails with brackets (loosely) attached (Step 4), front at left, outer side view
      Model 404L: Outer and center rails with brackets (loosely) attached (Step 4), front at left, outer side view
  5. Mount each bracket-rail assembly to the rack in an appropriate rack bay:
    1. Install the outer rail with the attached bracket to the front rack post by using two countersink screws and, if the rack holes are not pre-threaded (which might require clips), the conical washers provided. Note that the front end of the rail assembly has a black plastic H-shaped component.
    2. Extend and adjust the rear bracket to meet the depth of the rack and secure it to the rack post with two countersink screws and conical washers.
    3. Repeat steps (a) and (b) above to install the other rail to the other side of the rack.
    4. You can now use a wrench to tighten the nuts and the screws that attach the L-shaped brackets to each of the rails.

      Model 404L: Right side rail, with the front bracket attached, mounted at the front right side of rack
  6. Place the appliance (with ear brackets and inner rails attached) in the rack, as shown here:
    Model X404L: Placing the appliance into the rack
    Model 404L: Placing the appliance into the rack
  7. Slide the appliance into the frame. As you do, hold the tabs on the outer safety locks (as in 2.d.) on the left and right sides of the appliance, so that the appliance can slide all the way in, while the attached inner rails are prevented from sliding back out.
  8. Attach the ear brackets to the frame through their remaining (center) holes.
  9. Connect the Ethernet patch cable to an Ethernet port on the front panel (example: port
    1
    , which corresponds to
    GB1
    in the LCD and GUI interfaces), and to the network.
  10. Connect the power cords to the two PSUs and to outlets.
Configure Network Connections for the Appliance
After the appliance is installed and optionally, mounted in a rack, Configure Network Connections for the Appliance.
Appliance Power Supply Units
Each power supply is a modular unit that slides out of the appliance for offline replacement or repair. The power supplies are held in place by release levers that are easily accessible when facing the rear of the appliance. Each power supply unit (PSU) uses a standard detachable power cord.
If the power supplied to the appliance is interrupted (power fails or a supply unit is removed or unseated), the unit sounds a steady alarm tone. This alarm continues until the
silence switch
turns off the alarm.
The silence switch is a small button at the back of the unit, immediately to the left of the power supplies. Press the silence switch to turn off the alarm. After the switch is pressed, it is reset only after the power is restored and recycled back to each appliance. Power restoration means that each power supply is seated in the appliance, and that each power cord is plugged in to a live power outlet.
