Warnings and Cautions

for the HP Moonshot System

WARNING: When all components are removed, the chassis weighs 43.09 kg (95.00 lb). When all components are installed, the chassis can weigh up to 81.65 kg (180.00 lb). Before configuring your rack solution, be sure to check the manufacturer weight limits and specifications. Failure to do so can result in physical injury or damage to the equipment and the facility.

WARNING: To avoid risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, do not stack anything on top of rail-mounted equipment or use it as a work surface when extended from the rack.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, adequately stabilize the rack before installing the chassis:

  • Bolt the rack to the floor using the concrete anchor kit.
  • Extend the leveling feet to the floor.
  • Be sure the full weight of the rack rests on the leveling feet.
  • Be sure the racks are coupled together in multiple rack installations.
  • Extend only one component at a time. If more than one component is extended, a rack might become unstable.

CAUTION: Always plan the rack installation so that the heaviest item is on the bottom of the rack. Install the heaviest item first, and continue to populate the rack from the bottom to the top.

CAUTION: Be sure to keep the product parallel to the floor when installing the chassis. Tilting the product up or down could result in damage to the slides.

CAUTION: HP has not tested or validated the HP Moonshot 1500 Chassis with any third-party racks. Before installing the HP Moonshot 1500 Chassis in a third-party rack, be sure to properly scope the limitations of the rack. Before proceeding with the installation, consider the following:

  • You must fully understand the static and dynamic load carrying capacity of the rack and be sure that it can accommodate the weight of the HP Moonshot 1500 Chassis.
  • Be sure sufficient clearance exists for cabling, installation and removal of the chassis, and actuation of the rack doors.
