LaCie 12big Rack Network Foreword User Manual page 6 Rack System Safety Precautions The following safety requirements must be considered when the unit is mounted in a rack. ✦ ✦ The rack construction must be ca- pable of supporting the total weight of the installed enclosure(s) and the design should incorporate stabiliz- ing features suitable to prevent the rack from tipping or being pushed over during installation or in normal use. ✦ ✦ When loading a rack with the units, fill the rack from the bottom up and empty from the top down. ✦ ✦ Always remove all modules and drives, to minimize weight, before loading the chassis into a rack. CAUTION: To avoid danger of the rack toppling over, under no circumstances should more than one enclosure be drawn out of the cabinet at any one time. ✦ ✦ The system must be operated with low pressure rear exhaust installa- tion. (Back pressure created by rack doors and obstacles not to exceed 5 pascals [0.5mm water gauge]). ✦ ✦ The rack design should take into consideration the maximum oper- ating ambient temperature for the unit, which is 35°C. ✦ ✦ The rack should have a safe electri- cal distribution system. It must pro- vide overcurrent protection for the unit and must not be overloaded by the total number of units installed in the rack. When addressing these concerns consideration of the elec- trical power consumption rating shown on the nameplate. ✦ ✦ The electrical distribution system must provide a reliable earth for each unit and the rack. ✦ ✦ Each Power Supply Unit has an earth leakage current of 1.4mA. The design of the electrical distribu- tion system must take into consider- ation the total earth leakage current from all the power supplies in all the units. The rack will require labelling with “HIGH LEAKAGE CURRENT. Earth connection essential before connecting supply”. ✦ ✦ The rack when configured with the units must meet the safety require- ments of UL 60950-1 and IEC 60950-1.

LaCie 12big Rack Network System Overview User Manual page 13 1.7. Power Supply Unit AC-DC Power is provided by two dual-redundant power supply units with specific load capability, mechanical packaging and a power cage with output loom to suit this application. A Power Supply Mounting Cage is fitted in the rear of the enclosure as part of the subsystem core product. The cage houses two indi- vidually hot pluggable 850W AC Power Supply Units (PSUs), each with its own IEC inlet connector and failure indicator. PSU voltage operating ranges are nominally 100V - 240V AC, se- lected automatically. A typical PSU is shown in Fig. 07. Each PSU incorporate an Audible Alarm to indicate when a fault state is present and a bi-color (Green/Red) LED which indicates the PSU status. 1.7.1. Multiple Power Supply Units The LaCie 12big Rack Network includes two PSUs fitted in the Pow- er Supply Mounting Cage, providing dual power sources for the sys- tem so that if one PSU fails the other maintains the power supply and enclosure operation is not affected while you replace the faulty unit. PSU replacement should only take a few minutes to perform but must be completed within 10 minutes from removal of the failed PSU. Fig. 07 - Power Supply Unit
Page: 14
LaCie 12big Rack Network System Overview User Manual page 14 1.7.2. Power Supply Output Loom The Power Supply output loom provides the following outputs: ✦ ✦ P1 ATX Motherboard main power connectors (24 pin). ✦ ✦ P2 Processor power connector (8 pin) ✦ ✦ P3 12V power connector ✦ ✦ P4 Peripheral power connector (2 x 4 pin). ✦ ✦ P5 PSUI connector (5 pin) ✦ ✦ P5 SM bus connector (2 pin) 1.8. Cooling Fans The Cooling Fans are high speed single rotor axial fans. Ten fans are housed in a Cooling Cage, located centrally within the enclo- sure, between the drive bays and the Motherboard, as shown in Fig. 02. This ensures maximum airflow through the PSU and minimizes noise. Airflow is front to rear with cooling air being drawn across the drives, through the fans and pressurizing the rear of the enclosure. The pressurized rear allows the PSU to draw the air that it requires, and perforations at the rear of the chassis allow cooling airflow over the Processor heatsinks, memory, motherboard and PCI cards. The cooling system must be operated with low pressure rear exhaust installation [Back pressure created by rack doors and obstacles not to exceed 5 pascals (0.5mm Water gauge)] The cooling system provides sufficient capacity to ensure that drive maximum temperatures are not exceeded at 35°C ambient with one fan failed at sea level. The Cooling Cage contains ten individual high speed single rotor axial fans, individually connected to and interfacing with the Enclo- sure Management PCB. This interface provides power and speed control to the fans and returns tacho output from each fan Fig. 08 - Cooling Fan Module

LaCie 12big Rack Network Troubleshooting & Problem Solving User Manual page 33 4.5.4. Thermal Monitoring and Control The LaCie 12big Rack Network enclosure uses extensive thermal monitoring and takes a number of actions to ensure component temperatures are kept low and also to minimize acoustic noise. Air flow is from front to rear of the enclosure. Table 16 - Thermal Monitoring and Control Symptom Cause Action If the ambient air is cool (below 25 °C) and the fans are observed to increase in speed then some restriction on airflow may be causing additional internal tempera- ture rise. Note: This is not a fault condition. The first stage in the thermal control process is for the fans to automatically increase in speed when a thermal threshold is reached. This may be caused by higher ambient temperatures in the local environment and may be perfectly normal. Note: This threshold changes according to the number of drives and power supplies fitted. 1. Check the installation for any airflow restrictions at ei- ther the front or rear of the enclosure. A minimum gap of 25mm at the front and 50mm at the rear is recom- mended. 2. Check for restrictions due to dust build-up; clean as appropriate. 3. Check for excessive re-circulation of heated air from rear to the front, use in a fully enclosed rack installation is not recommended. 4. Check that all Blank modules are in place. 5. Reduce the ambient temperature. 4.5.5. Thermal Alarm Table 17 - Thermal Alarm Symptom Cause Action 1. Ops Panel UNIT FAULT LED amber. 2. An amber LED on one or more Power Supply Units. If the internal temperature measured in the airflow through the enclosure exceeds a pre-set threshold a thermal alarm will sound. 1. Check local ambient environment temperature is below the upper 35°C specification. 2. Check the installation for any airflow restrictions at ei- ther the front or rear of the enclosure. A minimum gap of 25mm at the front and 50mm at the rear is recom- mended. 3. Check for restrictions due to dust build-up, clean as appropriate. 4. Check for excessive re-circulation of heated air from rear to the front, use in a fully enclosed rack installation is not recommended. 5. If possible shutdown the enclosure and investigate the problem before continuing.
