Site Preparation

This section describes the site requirements for installing the Catalyst 8500 MSR, Catalyst 8500 CSR, and LightSteam 1010 series switches. To ensure normal system operation, plan your site configuration and prepare your site before installation.

Follow these guidelines when choosing a site for installation:

Install the system in a restricted access area, where access can be gained only by service personnel through the use of a special tool, lock and key, or other means of security.

Choose a site with a dry, clean, well-ventilated,andair-conditionedarea.

Choose a site that maintains an ambient temperature of 32 to 104°F (0 to 40°C).

Ensuring Overcurrent Protection

The system relies on the protective devices in the building installation for protection against short-circuit,overcurrent, and earth (grounding) fault. Ensure that the protective devices in the building installation are properly rated to protect the system, and that they comply with national and local codes.

Grounding the System

Follow these guidelines when grounding the system:

Do not defeat the ground conductor on an AC plug.

Connect AC-poweredsystems to grounded power outlets.

Connect the system to earth (ground).

Creating a Safe Environment

Follow these guidelines to create a safe environment:

Keep tools and chassis components off the floor and away from foot traffic.

Clear the area of possible hazards, such as moist floors, ungrounded power extension cables, and missing safety grounds.

Keep the area around the chassis free from dust and foreign conductive material (such as metal flakes from nearby construction activity).
