If any item is found missing or damaged, please contact your local reseller for replacement.


The site where you install the Switch stack may greatly affect its performance. When installing,
consider the following pointers:

Install the Switch in a fairly cool and dry place. See Specifications for the acceptable
temperature and humidity operating ranges.

Install the Switch in a site free from strong electromagnetic field generators (such as motors),
vibration, dust, and direct exposure to sunlight.

Leave at least 10cm of space at the front and rear of the hub for ventilation.

Install the Switch on a sturdy, level surface that can support its weight, or in an EIA
standard-size equipment rack. For information on rack installation, see the next section,
Rack Mounting.

When installing the Switch on a level surface, attach the rubber feet to the bottom of each
device. The rubber feet cushion the hub and protect the hub case from scratching.

Rack Mounting

The switch can be mounted in an EIA standard-size, 19-inch rack, which can be placed in a
wiring closet with other equipment. Attach the mounting brackets at the switch's front panel
(one on each side), and secure them with the provided screws.
