These installation notes provide updated installation and removal instructions for the DIN rail clip on the Catalyst 2955 switch.
Note For installation, software, or troubleshooting instructions for your switch, refer to the documentation on Cisco.com for the Catalyst 2955 switch.
This document contains these major sections:
The rear panel of the Catalyst 2955 switch has a DIN rail mounting clip assembly, as shown in Figure 1.
Figure 1 DIN Rail Clip Parallel Mounting Configuration
Mounting the Switch on a DIN Rail
You can mount the Catalyst 2955 switch on a DIN rail in a parallel or a face-down configuration.
The switch ships with the DIN rail clip assembly installed on the rear panel, for a parallel mounting configuration. To mount the switch in a face-down configuration, unscrew the four DIN rail clip mounting screws from the rear panel, and then reuse the screws to install the clip on the top of the switch, as shown in Figure 2.
Figure 2 DIN Rail Clip Face-Down Mounting Configuration
Warning This equipment is supplied as "open type" equipment. It must be mounted within an enclosure that is suitably designed for those specific environmental conditions that will be present and appropriately designed to prevent personal injury resulting from accessibility to live parts. The interior of the enclosure must be accessible only by the use of a tool.
The enclosure must meet IP 54 or NEMA type 4 minimum enclosure rating standards.
Caution To prevent the switch from overheating, there must be a minimum of 3 inches between any other device and the top, bottom, or sides of the switch.
To attach the switch to a DIN rail, follow the procedures in this section.
Step 1 Position the rear panel of the switch directly in front of the DIN rail, making sure that the top of the DIN rail clip hooks over the top of the DIN rail, as shown in Figure 3.

Step 2 Rotate the switch down toward the DIN rail until the release tab on the rear panel clicks.
Step 3 Lift lightly on the bottom of the switch to ensure that it is firmly locked in place.
Removing the Switch from a DIN Rail
To remove the switch from a DIN rail, follow these steps:
Step 1 Ensure that power is removed from the switch, and disconnect all cables and connectors from the front panel of the switch.

Technical Assistance Center
The Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two levels of support are available: the Cisco TAC Web Site and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center.
Cisco TAC inquiries are categorized according to the urgency of the issue:
•Priority level 4 (P4)—You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.
•Priority level 3 (P3)—Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.
•Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.
•Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.
The Cisco TAC resource that you choose is based on the priority of the problem and the conditions of service contracts, when applicable.
Cisco TAC Web Site
You can use the Cisco TAC Web Site to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC Web Site, go to this URL:
All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco service contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site. The Cisco TAC Web Site requires a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to this URL to register:
If you are a Cisco.com registered user, and you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC Web Site, you can open a case online by using the TAC Case Open tool at this URL:
If you have Internet access, we recommend that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC Web Site.
Cisco TAC Escalation Center
The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses priority level 1 or priority level 2 issues. These classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer automatically opens a case.
To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to this URL:
Before calling, please check with your network operations center to determine the level of Cisco support services to which your company is entitled: for example, SMARTnet, SMARTnet Onsite, or Network Supported Accounts (NSA). When you call the center, please have available your service agreement number and your product serial number.

The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required to correct the interference at their own expense.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not installed in accordance with Cisco's installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
Modifying the equipment without Cisco's written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television communications at your own expense.
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:
· Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
· Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.
· Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
· Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.
