    Each ECUTS configuration is designed to ensure physical stability of the test rack and to prevent overbalancing or tipping. When adding additional instruments or components to the ECUTS, it is important to preserve stability.

    Caution  

    Stability is based on the specific configuration of the system ordered, when fully assembled. Your system may be shipped in separate crates or boxes. Use caution to ensure stability while moving your system, and prior to assembly of the configured system.

    Attention  

    La stabilité est basée sur la configuration spécifique du système commandé, une fois assemblé entièrement. Votre système peut être expédié dans des caisses ou des boîtes séparées. Prenez toutes les précautions nécessaires pour assurer la stabilité de votre système lorsque vous le déplacez et avant l'assemblage du système configuré.

    Caution  

    If you remove equipment from the rack, it may no longer be compliant with IEC 61010-1 stability standards. Ensure that any modifications you make to the rack configuration maintains sufficient stability in accordance with IEC 61010-1. Any modifications made to the system not specified by the manufacturer may reduce the personal safety measures employed and compliance with IEC 61010-1.

    Attention  

    Si vous retirez un équipement du rack, il peut ne plus être conforme aux normes de stabilité IEC 61010-1. Assurez-vous que toute modification apportée à la configuration du rack permette de conserver une stabilité suffisante conformément à la norme IEC 61010-1. Toute modification apportée au système non spécifiée par le fabricant peut réduire les mesures de protection personnelle utilisées et la conformité à la norme IEC 61010-1.

    Use the following guidelines to maintain mechanical stability when adding additional components to the ECUTS.

    • For IEC 61010-1 compliance, the ECUTS and all included components must weigh less than 453.5 kg (1,000 lbs), evenly distributed across all caster wheels.
    • Any component over 4.5 kg (10 lbs) that hangs permanently outside of the ECUTS must have external support such as legs.
    • Tether the ECUTS to the floor or wall for additional stability. Tethering should be done according to facility practices and follow the guidelines in the ECUTS Ventilation Clearance section.
    • To improve the safety and stability of the ECUTS, you can install the RMX ballast plate (NI part number 787805-01) at the bottom of the test rack.
