LaCie 12big Rack Storage Server User Manual page 7 Safety Guidelines 1.1. Safe Handling CAUTION: If this equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer, the protection provided by the equipment may be impaired. All plug-in modules and blanking plates are part of the fire enclosure and must only be removed when they can be immediately replaced. The system must not be run without all units in place. In order to comply with applicable safety, emission and thermal requirements no covers should be removed and all bays must be fitted with plug- in modules. Permanently unplug the unit if you think that it has become dam- aged in any way. Unplug the unit before moving it. CAUTION: A fully assembled 12big Rack Storage Server can weigh up to 32kg (71lb) or 18kg (40lb) without drives installed. Do not try to lift it by yourself. Table 01 - Lifting Warning Label IMPORTANT INFO: The removal of the enclosure top cover or the power supply mounting cage must only be performed by a service person. Potential hazards include rotating fans and hot surfaces. The enclosure top cover must be secured when the enclosure is in normal use by rotating the lock 90° to the “locked” position (this is to prevent users/operators from accessing service areas). 1.2. Safety The 12big Rack Storage Server must only be operated from a power supply input voltage range of 100 to 240 VAC, 50 to 60 Hz. Make sure that the socket outlets are located near the equipment and are easily accessible. This equipment is intended to operate with two working Power Sup- ply Units (PSUs) housed in a power supply mounting cage. Before removal/replacement of a PSU, disconnect all supply power for complete isolation. Fig. 01 - Power Supply Mounting Cage Warning Label A faulty PSU must be replaced with a fully operational PSU within 24 hours. Refer to section 11.3. Environment. A safe electrical earth connection must be provided to the power cord. Check the grounding of the enclosure before applying power. 1. Safety Guidelines
Page: 8
LaCie 12big Rack Storage Server User Manual page 8 Safety Guidelines Fig. 02 - Warning Label – Earthed Mains Socket Provide a suitable power source with electrical overload protection to meet the requirements laid down in the technical specification. Bifurcated power cords MUST NOT be used with the 12big Rack Storage Server – they are not supported. Hot surfaces (heatsinks) are exposed when the enclosure top cover is removed. Disconnect power and allow the enclosure to cool before working inside the system. Fig. 03 - SAS Expander Cover Warning Label Rotating fan blades are exposed when the enclosure top cover is removed. Fig. 04 - Fan Caution Label When pulled out from the rack, the enclosure must not be used as a shelf to support any other object. Fig. 05 - Shelf Caution Label CAUTION: Do not remove covers from the PSU: there is a danger of electric shock inside. Return faulty PSUs to LaCie for repair. 1.2.1. Battery Precautions CAUTION: There is a danger of explosion if the battery is replaced by an incorrect type. Dispose of used batteries in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and national regulations. Equipment Handling Precau- tions IMPORTANT INFO: Operation of the enclosure with ANY drive carrier modules missing will disrupt the airflow and the system will not receive sufficient cooling. It is ESSENTIAL that all apertures are filled before operating the unit. Dummy drive carrier modules must be fitted to unused drive bays.
Page: 9
LaCie 12big Rack Storage Server User Manual page 9 Safety Guidelines The RJ45 sockets on the motherboard/PCI cards are for Ethernet connection only and must not be connected to a telecommunica- tions network. Drives are fragile and must be handled with care during removal/ replacement. 1.3. Rack System Safety Precautions The rack construction must be capable of supporting the total weight of the installed enclosure(s) and the design should incorporate sta- bilizing 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 the rack from the top down. Before loading the chassis into a rack, remove all PSU modules and drives to minimize weight. 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 back pressure created by rack doors and obstacles must not 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 electrical distribution system. It must provide overcurrent protection for the unit and must not be over- loaded by the total number of units installed in the rack. When ad- dressing these concerns, consider the electrical power consumption rating shown on the product. The electrical distribution system must provide a reliable earth for each unit and for the rack. Each Power Supply Unit has an earth leakage current of 1.4mA. The design of the electrical distribution system must take into consider- ation the total earth leakage current from all the power supplies in all the units. The rack requires labelling with the following: “HIGH LEAKAGE CURRENT. Earth connection essential before connecting supply”. When configured, the rack must meet the safety requirements of UL 60950-1:2005 (2nd edition) and IEC 60950-1 2nd edition. 1.4.

This LED is acti- vated by the button on the Ops Panel or by system software, and can be used to identify the server from among other units. IMPORTANT INFO: The Rear Panel is an integral part of the en- closure chassis assembly and is not field replaceable. 2.8. Power Supply Unit AC/DC power is provided by two commercial dual-redundant Pow- er Supply Units. A Power Supply Mounting Cage is fitted in the rear of the enclosure. The cage houses two individually hot-pluggable 850W AC Power Supply Units (PSUs), each with its own IEC inlet connector and fail- ure indicator. Fig. 12 - Power Supply Unit PSU voltage operating ranges are nominally 100V to 240V AC, selected automatically. A typical PSU is shown in Fig. 12. 2.8.1. Multiple Power Supply Units The 12big Rack Storage Server includes two PSUs fitted in the Power Supply Mounting Cage, providing dual power sources for the system so that if one PSU fails the other maintains the power supply and enclosure operation is not affected while the faulty unit is replaced. PSU replacement should only take a few minutes to perform but must be completed within 10 minutes of removing the failed PSU. IMPORTANT INFO: Operation of the enclosure with ANY mod- ules missing will disrupt the airflow and the system will not receive sufficient cooling. It is ESSENTIAL that all apertures are filled before operating the unit. 2.9. Cooling Fans The cooling fans are high speed single rotor axial fans. Ten fans are housed in a cooling cage, located centrally within the enclosure, be- tween the drive bays and the motherboard, as shown in Fig. 07. This allows maximum airflow through the system and minimizes noise.
Page: 14
LaCie 12big Rack Storage Server User Manual page 14 System Overview Fig. 13 - Cooling Fan Module Airflow is from 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. Back pressure created by rack doors and obstacles is not to exceed 5 pascals (0.5mm water gauge). The cooling system provides sufficient airflow to make sure that drive maximum temperatures are not exceeded when the enclosure is at 35°C ambient (sea level) and one fan has failed. The cooling cage contains ten individual high speed single rotor axial fans, individually connected to and interfacing with the EM Card. This interface provides power and speed control to the fans and returns tachometer output from each fan. 2.10. Drive Carrier Module The drive darrier module comprises a hard disk mounted in a car- rier. Each drive bay houses a single low profile 1.0 inch high, 3.5 inch form factor disk drive in its carrier. The carrier has mounting locations for SAS/SATA drives. Each disk drive is enclosed in a sheet steel carrier which provides excellent thermal conduction, radio frequency and electro-magnetic induction protection and affords the drive physical protection. The front cap features an ergonomic handle which provides the fol- lowing functions: ✦ ✦ Camming of carrier into and out of drive bays. ✦ ✦ Positive ‘spring loading’ of the drive/backplane connector. Fig. 14 - Drive Carrier Module 2.10.1. Drive Status Indicator Disk drive status is monitored by green and amber LEDs mounted on the front of each drive carrier module, under GEM control (see Fig. 15). Refer to section 4.4.3. Drive Carrier LEDs for a description of the LED states. The behavior of these LEDs can be overridden by the customer via SES. 2.10.2. Anti-Tamper Locks Anti-tamper locks are fitted in the drive carrier handles (Fig. 15) and are accessed through the small cutout in the latch section of the handle. These are provided to disable the normal ‘pinch’ latch action of the carrier handle. Fig. 15 - Anti-tamper Lock 2.10.3. Mixed Drive Types SAS and SATA drives may be mixed within an enclosure but drives of a similar type and rotation speed should be mounted within the same column of the enclosure. 2.10.4. Dummy Drive Carrier Modules Dummy drive carrier modules are provided for fitting in all unused drive bays. They are designed as integral drive module front caps with handles and must be fitted to all unused drive bays to maintain a balanced airflow.
