Safety Guidelines

The information in this section applies to all Extreme Networks switch models. These icons identify the type of precaution.

This icon indicates a general caution. Failure to comply with a caution notification can result in damage to equipment.

This icon indicates an electrical caution. Failure to comply with an electrical notification can result in serious injury or death, and extensive damage to equipment.

This icon indicates a laser caution. Failure to comply with a laser caution can result in serious injury.

The following safety precautions apply to all Extreme Networks switches:

There are no serviceable parts inside the SR2348P switch. Failure investigation (including power supply failure) must be performed by the original manufacturer.
Do not install the device in an environment where the operating ambient temperature might exceed the recommended ranges.
Make sure the air flow for rack mounted devices is not restricted.
Changes or modifications made to this device that are not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
The procedures in this manual are for qualified service personnel.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. ESD damage occurs when electronic components are improperly
handled and can result in complete or intermittent failures. Always follow ESD-prevention procedures when handling electronic components.
Make sure the rack or cabinet housing the device is adequately secured to prevent it from becoming unstable or falling over.
Disconnect the power cord from all power sources to completely remove power from the device.
If the installation requires a different power cord than the one supplied with the device, make sure you use a power cord displaying the mark of the safety agency that defines the regulations for power cords in your country. The mark is your assurance that the power cord can be used safely with the device.
The switch must be connected only to PoE networks without routing to the outside plant.
All fiber optic interfaces contain Class 1 lasers. Invisible laser radiation can also be emitted from disconnected fibers. Never look into the end of a fiber, regardless of whether it is active or disconnected.
The optical transceivers used in the SFP port must be laser class I components (under CDRH definition), compliant with IEC/EN60825.

Install the SR2348P Switch

  • Follow the safety guidelines in "Safety Guidelines " to ensure the safety of personnel and equipment.

Install SR2348P switches on a clean, level desktop or surface, or in a standard equipment rack using the rack mount kit that ships with the switch (see "Rack Mounting Instructions"). If you are installing your switch on a desktop or surface, attach the four rubber feet to the bottom of the chassis to provide stability and prevent the device from moving on the surface.

Rack Mounting Instructions

Use the procedures in this section to mount your device in an equipment rack.

For stability, always load a rack from the bottom to the top, with the heaviest devices on the bottom. A top-heavy rack is likely to be unstable and can tip over.
  • Adequate ventilation is critical for switch operation. Install your devices in a properly ventilated equipment rack, or for tabletop installations, leave 2 inches (5 cm) of clear space at the sides of the switch so the fans can properly cool the chassis.

You can mount the SR2348P switch in any standard 19" (48 cm) equipment rack. These devices require 1 rack unit (RU) of space, which is 1.75" (44.45 cm) high. Use the following steps to mount the switch in a rack.

  1. Place one of the supplied brackets on the side of the switch so that the four holes of the bracket align with the screw holes on the switch. Use four screws to secure the bracket to the switch. The bracket measurements are shown here:

  1. Attach the other bracket in the same manner.
  2. When the brackets are securely attached, install the switch in the rack using two washers and two rack screws per side, as shown.
