About This Guide


This document includes information on:

Environmental requirements:
- Temperature
- Humidity
- Altitude
- Physical space
- AC power
Package dimensions and clearance requirements

Environmental Requirements
+15o C to +32o C (59o F to 89.6o F) site temperature*

40 percent to 55 percent relative humidity*


Approximately 2,362 pounds (1.1 T metric) of floor support is required.
The weight must be distributed over four floor tiles:
Front: 673 pounds (305.3 kg) per fixed caster
Rear: 508 pounds (230.4 kg) per swivel caster
0 to 2,286 m (0 to 7,500 ft) above sea level operating altitude*
* Recommended operating parameters. Contents of the cabinet may be qualified to operate
outside these limits; refer to the product-specific documentation for system specifications.
Air quality should meet the requirements of the ASHRAE (American Society of Heating,
Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers) Environment Standard Handbook.

Environmental Requirements
You must provide adequate clearance for the installation process and to
service and cool your system.
When fully extended, a drawer will sit 25 in. (.625 m) outside of the cabinet.
You must provide adequate clearance beyond this 25 in. to provide room for
servicing your system; some component upgrade/replacements may require 42
in. (1.1 m) to accommodate a standard mechanical lift.
Once configured, the 44U cabinet dimensions will be: 82.44 in. H (2.1 m) x
43.3 in. D (1.1 m) x 24.0 in. W (.61 m).

Width

Environmental Requirements
The weight of the system must be split over four floor tiles. The front two tiles
will each hold approximately 673 pounds (305.3 kg). The rear two tiles will
each hold approximately 508 pounds (230.4 kg).

Each AC circuit in the 44U cabinet requires three source connections that can
support a minimum of 4800 VA of single phase, 200-240 V AC input power.
Highly available performance configurations require a second discreet power
circuit with another three connections to the cabinet.
All source power feeds are routed through the cabinet bottom.
Contact your EMC representative if you are uncertain about your systems
power requirements.

Package Dimensions and Clearance


Make certain your doorways and elevators are wide enough and tall enough to
accommodate the shipping pallet and cabinet. Use a mechanical lift or pallet
jack to position the packaged cabinet in its final location.
The packaged dimensions are 42 in. (1.1 m) x 52 in. (1.3 m) with a height of
about 90 in. (2.3 m).
