Rack mounting a Single MPX node

Updated by Bryan Jones

All MPX Nodes come standard with a rack mount kit. Mounting options are the same as Telos Alliance xNodes since the chassis is the same. One unit can be mounted in a single rack space, or two nodes can be mounted side by side.

This document covers how to rack a single node in a rack.

To rack mount any combination of two nodes in one RU space, click here for instructions.

To mount a node to a flat surface, click here and follow the instructions on how to do so with a Telos Alliance xNode.

Mounting a single MPX node

MPX nodes are shipped with one short rack ear and one long rack ear that look like this.

Using a #2 Phillips screwdriver secure a short rack ear to one side of the MPX node using two M4 X 10MM flat head screws (provided). Secure the long ear to the opposing side.

For single-node mounting, the long and short brackets can be mounted on either side of the MPX node for left or right-hand mounting.

When mounted, the brackets will look like this.

The "L" Bracket

Your MPX node also comes with an "L" Bracket.

This bracket is for mounting two MPX nodes together. If you're only mounting one node, save this bracket for possible future use.
