NOTE: If the library is NOT being installed with other libraries to operate in a multiple library stack, it is not necessary to complete the following instructions.

If the library will be installed in a rack with other PX500 Series libraries, you must prepare each chassis prior to installation. Preparing the library chassis for installation into a multiple library stack consists of:

NOTE: It is recommended to place the Master library in the middle of the library stack for improved performance.

Removing the FlexLink cover plates

Installing the alignment hardware

To prepare the library chassis for multiple stack operation:

1Remove two PHILLIPS screws securing each FlexLink cover located on the top and bottom of the library using a #1 PHILLIPS screwdriver (see figure 25).

NOTE: Remove the bottom FlexLink cover on every library except the bottom library in the stack. Remove the top FlexLink cover on the bottom library in the stack.
