Part Number

Do not use carpeting, including antistatic varieties, because they can shed dust over time that can cause problems with the storage system.

If your computer room has carpeting, place static discharge mats so that personnel must walk across them before touching any part of the storage system. Failing to comply with this precaution can damage the equipment through static discharge.

If your computer room uses floor cutouts to route power and data cables, position the cutouts toward the center of the rack. If this is not possible, position the cutouts off-center from the rack as long as the cutout is within the allowable range and allows smooth routing and entrance of cables. Check the relationship between the position of the cutout and the cable openings on the rack.
