Installation overview Some customers require that their equipment be installed to withstand significant shock and vibration. Installation of securing kits, in combination with adequate substrate construction, can mitigate collateral damage during such events.

The securing kits contain heavy floor and top brackets for the system bays. The floor brackets are attached to the floor using bolts that engage the flooring substructure within the computer room or data center. The top brackets secure the tops of adjacent bays.

securing kits can be installed on system bays without lifting the bays.

Types of brackets System bays are secured with two types of brackets:

l Floor brackets Secure the outermost parameters of the array configuration to the floor. The following image shows the floor securing brackets. If the configuration includes only one bay, floor brackets secure the front, back, right and left of the bay.

If the configuration includes additional bays, front and rear brackets are installed on each system bay, and right and left brackets are installed on the right and left of the outermost bays.

l Top brackets Secure the tops of adjacent bays to each other. Figure 2 on page 13 shows top securing brackets.

Task overview To install a securing kit:

l Understand the system layout and the position of the floor and top brackets that secure the system.

l Position brackets and drill holes in the data center floor to accommodate bracket securing bolts.

l Secure the system bays.

Securing Kit Overview

Dell EMC Securing Kit Installation Guide For: VMAX3, VMAX All Flash, PowerMax 13

Laying out the securing brackets To lay out the securing brackets on raised or unraised floors, you must understand the layout and dimensions of the system bays.

System bays are the same size. System bays are secured to the floor with floor brackets, and along the top with T brackets.

Floor brackets are attached directly to raised or unraised floors.

Dimensions and layout On arrays with System Bay 1 only, the system bay is secured to the floor with a front, rear, right and left bracket.

On systems with multiple, adjacent bays, bays are secured with:

l A front and rear bracket on each bay

l A right and left bracket on the outermost bays

l An upper T bracket between bays (secures the top)

Hole drilling requirements Installing floor brackets requires the drilling of holes that affix the floor brackets directly to a raised or non raised floor.

When drilling holes:

l Remove system bay doors for easier access.

l To maximize pullout force and transverse stability, Dell EMC recommends securing all brackets, and all holes within each bracket.

l Make sure the floor can be drilled without compromising its strength. It may be necessary to reinforce the floor. Contact the flooring contractor/supplier or building engineer to determine the best way to proceed.

l Raised floors do not offer significant resistive strength. On a raised floor, the anchor bolts should go through the raised floor and be tied using cables and turnbuckles, or fastened directly with high strength threaded fasteners into the subfloor or super structure on the subfloor.

Note: One method to locate the holes accurately is to mount the anchor brackets loosely to the system bays, using the instructions in the following sections. Mark the hole locations in pencil, and then remove the brackets and drill the holes.

l Drilled holes should be of 1/2-inch diameter (1.27cm) or larger. If you are mounting the system bays on a nonraised floor, the diameter of the holes must be large enough to take 1/2-inch threaded inserts. Install the inserts in the manner recommended by the manufacturer. EMC recommends a proprietary fastening system, such as HILTI, for use on nonraised floors.

For a raised-floor installation, drill the holes 5/8-inch (1.59cm) diameter. This size allows for any tolerance buildup in the hole pattern.
