Safety and installation warnings

Ambient temperature
Make sure the ambient temperature does not exceed the maximum ambient temperature allowed for the ExaLINK Fusion (104F, 40C). If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the ambient temperature of the rack during operation will be greater than room ambient.

Air flow
Install the ExaLINK Fusion in the rack in a way that provides sufficient air flow for safe operation.

Mechanical loading
Mount the ExaLINK Fusion in the rack with a mechanical load that is evenly distributed and not excessive.

Circuit overloading
Ensure that no overloading of the circuits occurs which might affect overcurrent protection and supply wiring. The ratings are provided on the unit.

Ensure that the rack-mounted equipment is earthed reliably. Consider using supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuit (e.g. use of power strips).

Check that your ExaLINK Fusion is rated to be used with the mains power in your country.
Total ExaLINK Fusion ratings:
  • 90-264V AC @ 3A max, 50/60 Hz; or
