Installing the Hardware

Items Required

In addition to the materials and components provided in the OmniSwitch 6850 Series shipment, you must provide the following items in order to complete this installation:

Grounding wrist strap

Phillips screwdriver

Serial cable

Rack mount screws, if applicable

Site Preparation

Environmental Requirements

OmniSwitch 6850 Series switches have the following environmental and airflow requirements:

The installation site must maintain a temperature between 0° and 45° Celsius (32° and 113° Fahrenheit) and not exceed 95 percent maximum humidity (noncondensing) at any time.

Be sure to allow adequate room for proper air ventilation and access at the front, back, and sides of the switch. No clearance is necessary at the top or bottom of the chassis. Refer to page 6 for minimum clearance requirements.

Electrical Requirements

OmniSwitch 6850 Series switches have the following general electrical requirements:

Each switch requires one grounded AC power source.

Grounded AC power source must be 110V for North American installations (220V international).

Each supplied AC power cord is approximately 2 meters (6.5 feet) long. Do not use extension cords.

NEBS GR-1089Compliance Requirements

The following notes and warnings apply to all NEBS compliant platforms.

Grounding requirements: To ground the equipment properly, connect a Panduit Corporation UL listed Lug, P/N:LCD8-10ALto the two threaded holes located on the rear of each chassis and power supply module. All connections should be made using 8AWG copper conductors.

Use Panduit Corporation, P/N: CT-940CHfor crimping. (Each Module must have its own grounding conductor.)

(GR-1089requires treatment of ground connections and painted surfaces as needed during installation.)

Warning. Theintra-buildinginterfaces of this platform,


including Gigabit Ethernet, are suitable for connection to


intra-buildingor unexposed wiring or cabling only with


shielded and grounded cables at both ends. The intra-building


ports of the equipment must not be metallically connected to


interfaces that connect to the OSP or its wiring.






Note. All bare conductors must be coated with an appro-



priate antioxidant compound before crimp connections are



made. All unplated connectors, braided strap, and bus bars



are to be brought to a bright finish and then coated with an



antioxidant before connecting them.
