H3C Slide Rails Installation Guide

1 Application scope

The H3C slide rails have two models, whose length is in the range from 350 mm (13.78 in) to 550 mm (21.65 in), and from 500 mm (19.69 in) to 800 mm (31.50 in). Before using a slide rail, note the following guidelines:

·           The depth of the rack falls into the length range of the slide rail.

·           A set of slide rails can bear a weight of no more than 350 kg (771.60 lb).

2 Installation procedures

 

 

NOTE:

·       The H3C slide rails are applicable only to four-post racks.

·       The slide rail length varies with slide rail models. The figures in this document are for illustration only.

·       The installation of slide rails might vary with different types of racks. The following installation procedure is for your reference only.

 

Follow these steps to install a slide rail:

Step1      Read the signs on the slide rail (see Table 1 ) to avoid installation mistake.

Front end of the right slide rail

Mount this end to the front right rack post.

 

Step2      Mark the position on the rack for installing the slide rail.

·           Make sure the bottom edge of the slide rail aligns with the middle of the narrower metal area between holes, as shown in Figure 2 .

·           Each rack post requires six screws to fix the slide rail. You only need to mark the uppermost square hole and lowermost square hole for installation.

·           Mark the square holes at the same height on the other three rack posts.

 

 

NOTE:

One rack unit has three holes, the middle of which is an auxiliary installation hole, and the other two are standard installation holes. You can distinguish them by the space between each two holes. The space between a standard installation hole and an auxiliary installation hole is larger than that between two adjacent standard installation holes.

Step3      Install six cage nuts on the square holes on each rack post, as shown in Figure 3 .

Step4      Align the installation holes on the front end of the slide rail with the cage nuts on the front rack post, and fix them with screws, as shown in Figure 4 .

Step5      Keep the slide rail horizontally and adjust its length until the installation holes on the rear end of the slide rail touch the cage nuts on the rear rack post. Then fix them with screws.

 

TIP:

Fix all installation holes of the slide rail with screws to ensure its weight bearing capacity.

 

Step6      Repeat steps Step4 and Step5 to install the other slide rail. Make sure the two slide rails are at the same height so that the device can be placed on them horizontally.
