Checking the Installation Site

The Device must be used indoors. To ensure normal operations and long service life of the device, the installation site must meet the following requirements described in Table 1.

Table 1 Requirements for the installation site




The device must be installed in a clean, dry, and well ventilated standard equipment room with stable temperature. The equipment room must be free from leaking or dripping water, heavy dew, and humidity.

Dust proofing

Dustproof measures must be taken in the site. Dust will cause electrostatic discharges on the chassis and affect connections of metal connectors and joints. This shortens service life of the device and may cause failures of the device.

Temperature and humidity

The temperature and humidity in the installation site must be within specifications. For the operating temperature and relative humidity ranges required by the device, see device overview. If the relative humidity exceeds 70%, using dehumidifiers or dehumidifying air conditioners is recommended.

Corrosive gases avoidance

The installation site must be free from acidic, alkaline, or corrosive gases.

Heat dissipation space

Keep any objects or obstructions at least 75 mm away from the air intake and exhaust vents to facilitate heat dissipation.

Maintenance space

The equipment must be stacked in the cabinet or installed at an interval of 2U or more to prevent the return air from affecting heat dissipation.
