When the instrument is installed according to the instructions in this document, the rackmounted instrument meets all warranted requirements listed in the instrument specification. Instruments mounted using methods other than those described in these instructions might not meet their warranted requirements.
For tables of the warranted characteristics, see Specifications in the specification and performance verification manual that applies to your instrument model.
CAUTION:The instrument might be damaged due to overheating. When installing multiple instruments in an instrument rack, the ambient temperature may go up. You assume the responsibility to provide adequate cooling to meet the ambient temperature requirements listed in the specifications.
The ambient temperature inside the instrument rack will vary depending on the location of the instrument within the instrument rack. Tektronix recommends that you measure the ambient temperature in the desired rack location before you install the instrument to ensure the operating temperature does not exceed the rated ambient temperature limit. If necessary, refer to the Environmental Specifications in your product documentation for the operating temperature limits.
The rack in which the individual instrument is mounted must provide the following clearance requirements:
- At least 218 mm (8.6 in) of vertical space
- A minimum width of 488 mm (19.2 in) between the left- and right-front rails in the rack. If possible, consider allowing at least 50.8 mm (2.0 in) on the right side and rear of the instrument for adequate airflow.
- A minimum inside depth of at least 384 mm (15.1 in) depth (from rack mounting ear to back of instrument). Airflow enters from the back of the instrument and exits on the right of the instrument when viewed from the front.
CAUTION:Adhering to these requirements mounts the rack-adapted instrument with enough clearance for air circulation and accommodation of the power cord and mounting hardware. Failure to provide these clearances can result in overheating and can cause the instrument to operate improperly or fail.
These instructions are for qualified service personnel who are familiar with servicing the product. If you need further details for disassembling or reassembling the product, refer to the appropriate product manual. Contact your nearest Tektronix, Inc., Service Center or Tektronix Factory Service for installation assistance.
Assemble the instrument on the rack platform
A 5 Series MSO is shown in the illustrations.
- Remove the handle, hubs, and grill as shown. Save the handle, hubs, hub screws, and grill for future use.
- Install the left and right mounting plates. Use the M4 screws from item 5.
- Install the top and bottom support plates and handle as shown. Use the M3 screws from item 5 to assemble the support plates. Use the 10-32 flat-head screws from item 5 to attach the handles.
- Install the left-side and right-side rack mounts as shown. Use M4 screws from item 5 to attach the slides.
- Locate the rack slides and using hardware from items 6 and 7, as appropriate for your rack, install the rack slides in your equipment rack.
- Install the rack platform in your equipment rack by inserting the platform into the slides as shown.
WARNING:To avoid personal injury and prevent the instrument from tipping or dropping, use two or more people to install this instrument into the rack cabinet. After completing the installation procedure, verify that the instrument and the rack cabinet will not tip forward while the instrument is in the extended position. Do not leave the instrument extended when finished accessing the instrument.
- Install the power cord. Provide access to a power plug or mains disconnect switch for turning the instrument on/off.
- Optionally install any cables you need connected to the instrument rear panel.
- Slide the instrument into the equipment rack, and secure the instrument to the rack using standard rack hardware.
