  • Safety noticesThis guide covers the Nexsan E60/E60V/E60VT/E60PandNexsanE48/E48V/E48VT/E48Pdigital storage units only. Refer to the relevant product manuals forinformation on other Nexsan storage or expansion units and other Nexsan products mentioned in this guide.Always observe the following precautions to reduce the risk of injury and equipment damage:

    WARNING: There is a risk of ELECTRIC SHOCK if Nexsan E-Series components are removedor tampered with when unit power is on. Only a trained operator may remove certain customer-replaceable units (CRUs). The Nexsan E-Series storage units include the following CRUs:

    Power Supply modules

    RAID Controller and Expansionmodules

    Disk drives


    Computer components and disk drives are sensitive to static discharge. Take precautions to dischargeany electrostatic charge from your person before and while handling components with your hands or anytools. Use an anti-static wrist-strap.

    Ensure correct liftingmethods are used when removing the unit from its packaging and positioning it into itsrequired location. When lifting the system, two people at either end should lift slowly with their feet spreadout to distribute the weight. Always keep your back straight and lift with your legs.

    When removing the unit from the packaging, DONOT lift the unit by any plastic parts or module handles onthe chassis. Doing somay cause damage to the chassis or to internal components, or both. Lift the unitONLY by the bottom edges of the chassis, using safe lifting practices.

    The unit should only be installed in a clean, dry environment. The operating temperature is 5 to 35 C (41to 95 F), with operating relative humidity at 20 to 80%, non-condensing.

    Do not install the unit in an enclosed cabinet or other small area without ventilation.

    When installing the unit as a rack-mounted component, ensure that all Nexsan-suppliedmounting fixturesare secure. All bolts and screws should be fully tightened. Failure to comply with this may result in the unitnot being fully supported in the rack and could lead to the product falling from the rack, causing personalinjury or damage to other rack components.

    Ensure that the rack is sufficiently stable by having wall anchors and/or stabilizing legs, and that the floorsupporting the rack has sufficient strength
