MULTILINK ETHERNET COMMUNICATIONS SWITCH – QUICKSTART GUIDE 3
2 Mechanical Installation
2.1 Table-top or Shelf Mounting
The Unit can be mounted on a table-top or any suitable horizontal surface. It has four
rubber feet to provide stability without scratching finished surfaces.
2.2 Rack Mounting - ML2400
Installation of a MultiLink Ethernet Switch in a 19-inch rack is a simple procedure. When
properly installed, the front-mounted LED status indicators should be in plain view and
easy to read. Rack-mount installation requires special 19-inch rack-mounted brackets and
screws (included with the Unit). These brackets attach to the front sides of the switch,
which is then typically fastened into a standard 19" RETMA rack as shown below.
