Models: NVIDIA NVLink

Pay Attention!

  • At least two people are required to safely mount the system in the rack.

  • All servers and systems in the rack should be planned with the airflow direction. All FRU components must have the same air flow direction. A mismatch in the air flow will affect the heat dissipation.

  • The part of the system to which you choose to attach the rails will determine the system's adjustable side. The system's part to which the brackets are attached will be adjacent to the cabinet.

  • The FRU side is extractable. Mounting the rack brackets inverted to the FRU side will allow you to slide the FRUs, in and out.

  • Due to thermal considerations, the switch systems must be installed in a horizontal position. do not install the systems vertically. images/networking/download/thumbnails/132448365/image2022-8-24_15-46-8.png images/networking/download/thumbnails/132448365/image2022-8-24_15-48-2.png images/networking/download/thumbnails/132448365/image2022-8-24_15-42-42.png images/networking/download/thumbnails/132448365/image2022-8-24_15-43-36.png
