Due to the size and weight of the DB60 dense intermix drive trays used with VSP Gx00 models, pay close special attention when mounted in third-party racks.

When mounting DB60 dense intermix drive trays in third-party racks, observe the following guidelines and see the following figure.
  • Use anti-tilt floor plates or ceiling-mounted fixing brackets to stabilize the rack.
  • Use a rack that is at least 40.94 in. (1040 mm) deep to accommodate the DB60 dense intermix drive tray and cable-management arms.
  • Dense tray rail kits require square mounting holed racks.
  • Use a ladder to service the DB60 dense intermix drive tray if the drive tray is mounted above shelf height RU32.
