  5. Route cables away from power lines, fluorescent lighting fixtures, and sources of noise such as radios, transmitters, and broadband amplifiers.
  6. Install in a location away from direct sunlight and sources of heat. A maximum ambient temperature of 104º F (40º C) is recommended.
  7. If installed in a closed or multi-rack assembly, the operating ambient \ temperature of the rack environment may be greater than the room ambient. Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the maximum recommended ambient temperature.
  8. Mount the SonicWall appliances evenly in the rack in order to prevent a hazardous condition caused by uneven mechanical loading.
  9. Four mounting screws, compatible with the rack design, must be used and hand tightened to ensure secure installation. Choose a mounting location where all four mounting holes line up with those of the mounting bars of the 19-inch rack mount cabinet.
  10. A suitably rated and approved branch circuit breaker shall be provided as part of the building installation. Follow local code when purchasing materials or components.
  11. Consideration must be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit. Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings must be used when addressing this concern. Do not overload the circuit.
  12. This equipment must be grounded. The power cord for the product should be connected to a socket or outlet with earthing connection. Reliable grounding of rack-mounted equipment must be maintained.
    Particular attention must be given to power supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuits, such as power strips.
  13. The included power cord(s) are approved for use only in specific countries orregions. Before using a power cord, verify that it is rated and approved for use in your location.

Electromagnetic Compatibility

Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is any signal or emission, radiated in free space or conducted along power or signal leads, that endangers the functioning of radio navigation or other safety service or seriously degrades, obstructs, or repeatedly interrupts a licensed radio communications service. Radio communications services include but are not limited to AM/FM commercial broadcast, television, cellular services, radar, airtraffic control, pager, and Personal Communication Services (PCS). These licensed radio services, and unlicensed radio services, such as WLAN or Bluetooth, along with unintentional radiators such as digital devices, including computer systems, contribute to the electromagnetic environment.

Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) is the ability of items of electronic equipment to function properly together in the electronic environment. While this computer system has been designed and determined to be compliant with regulatory agency limits for EMI, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.

SonicWALL products are designed, tested, and classified for their intended electromagnetic environment. These electromagnetic environment classifications generally refer to the following harmonized definitions:

Class B products are intended for use in residential/domestic environments but may also be used in nonresidential/non-domestic environments.

Symbol.png NOTE: The residential/domestic environment is an environment where the use of broadcast radio and television receivers may be expected within a distance of 10 m (33 feet) from where this product is used.

Class A products are intended for use in non-residential/non-domestic environments. Class A products may also be utilized in residential/domestic environments, but may cause interference and require the user to take adequate corrective measures.

If this equipment does cause interference with radio communications services, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, you are encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

  • Reorient the receiving antenna.
  • Relocate the computer with respect to the receiver
  • Move the computer away from the receiver.
  • Plug the computer into a different outlet so that the computer and the receiver are on different branch circuits.

If necessary, consult a SonicWall Technical Support representative or an experienced radio/television or EMC technician for additional suggestions.

Information Technology Equipment (ITE), including peripherals, expansion cards, printers, input/output (I/O) devices, monitors, and so on, that are integrated into or connected to the system should match the electromagnetic environment classification of the computer system.

A Notice about Shielded Signal Cables: Use only shielded cables for connecting peripherals to any SonicWall device to reduce the possibility of interference with radio communications  services. Using shielded cables ensures that you maintain the appropriate EMC classification for the intended environment.

SonicWall has determined that this product is a Class A harmonized product. The following sections provide country-specific EMC/EMI or product safety information.
