- Manufacturer Contact Info: http://www.hp.com, 13 10 47
Ballast is designed to provide additional stability and support when used with the Stabilizer Kit. Typically used when very heavy equipment is routinely installed, removed or accessed within the rack.
The ballast is a heavy bar of metal that can be mounted in the rear of the rack to provide permanent anti-tip protection.
It helps prevent the cabinet from tipping forward if heavy slide-mounted devices are extended from the rack.
Ballast is intended to provide additional stability when there are
operator serviceable slide-mounted products in the rack. A device is considered "operator serviceable" if it does not require the use of any tool to facilitate servicing or to extend the device from the rack on its slides.
Products that require the use of any tool to facilitate servicing or to extend the device from the rack are considered serviceable by trained personnel only.
When these products are extended, the use of the anti-tip foot is required, and no ballast is required in the rack.
