SECTION 4: INSTALLATION OVERVIEW
Recommended Tools and Equipment
Do not use a metal stepladder. Accidental contact with electrical wires could lead to electrocution or severe injury. Use only fiberglass or wooden step ladders.
In addition to the typical complement of hand tools, the following tools and equipment are recommended for proper installation of the station equipment.
- Standard electrician’s tool box (should contain a variety of hand tools appropriate for working with electrical circuits and associated equipment).
- TORX® screwdriver, with TX15 and TX30 bits
- Small adjustable wrench or gas pliers
- Wire cutters (for cutting tie-wraps)
- Fiberglass or wooden stepladder, six to eight feet (used to access the top of the 70" cabinet and the 7', 7.5', and 8' racks, if applicable).
- Block-and-tackle or suitable hoist is recommended to lift cabinets equipped with multiple stations. Each fully equipped station weighs approximately 55 lbs. (standard power) or 82 lbs. (high power).
- Power drill and appropriate boring bits for drilling concrete (for drilling anchor holes in concrete flooring).
- Tarpaulin or large plastic drop cloth to cover surrounding equipment while drilling concrete anchor holes (for installations where cabinet or rack is being anchored to concrete flooring).
- Vacuum cleaner for removing concrete dust (for installations where cabinet or rack is being anchored to concrete flooring).
- ESD grounding strap
