For users who would like to mount their COBALT8M in a 19” rack, a pair of rack mounting ears are provided in the accessories box inside your COBALT8M packaging.
To install these, first grab a corner of the textured rubber side panels fitted to your COBALT8M and pull these back to remove them from the unit. You may wish to retain these for future use if the unit is removed from rackmount use.
Removing the rubber side panels will expose two screw holes, recessed into the side of the COBALT8M. Take the provided rack ear mounting screws and install them into the smaller holes in the rack ear, then align the ear with the side of the COBALT8M and secure the screws.
Do not apply too much force when tightening these screws as this may damage the aluminium sides.
Please note, when installed in a 19” rack, you will need to allow 1U of space above the COBALT8M to allow the installation of cables into the back / top of the unit or alternatively use right-angled connectors.
We also have this handy Modal Minute that helps with the installation.
