Determining Installation Positions

Determining Installation Positions

Before installing controller enclosures and disk enclosures, determine their installation positions in a cabinet. This greatly improves installation efficiency.


The required installation tools and materials include:

  • 2 U/3 U/4 U/6 U installation template (available in the accessory box)
  • Marker


  • To facilitate the operation and maintenance of a controller enclosure, you are advised to install a controller enclosure between the 19th U and the 24th U in a cabinet. This section uses the recommended installation positions in a 42 U cabinet as an example. You can plan device installation positions based on site requirements.
  • Below a controller enclosure, reserve a 2 U space for installing a cable tray and facilitating removing and inserting interface modules.
  • You are advised to keep a 1 U (44.45 mm) space between storage devices. If the space is limited, it is recommended that five disk enclosures form a group, and at least a 1 U space be reserved between groups within the same cabinet to facilitate management and mitigate vibration transfer.
  • You are advised to reserve a 2 U space at the bottom of the cabinet to facilitate cabling, ventilation, heat dissipation, and maintenance of the devices located in the lower part of the cabinet.

You are advised to install disk enclosures from the bottom up in descending order of weight.


  1. See Layout Plan to locate controller enclosure and disk enclosure installation positions in a cabinet.


    Each three square holes correspond to 1 U height. Each 1 U height is lined out with a scale mark. If no 1 U scale mark is lined out on the front and rear columns of the cabinet, line out scale marks to facilitate locating installation positions.

  2. Align the bottom of an installation template with the integer U mark on the mounting bars of the cabinet, as shown in Figure 5-51 and Figure 5-52. (A 6 U device and a 2 U device are used as an example. The 4 U and 3 U installation templates can be used in the same way.)

    Figure 5-51 Determining the installation positions of 6 U and 4 U devices

    Figure 5-52 Determining the installation positions of 2 U and 3 U devices

  3. Use a marker to mark the positions of the screw holes where devices will be fastened on the mounting bars. Then, you have finished locating the installation positions of the controller enclosure and disk enclosures.
