Attaching the Mounting Bracket to a Wall With Wooden Studs

This section contains the procedure you use to mount the MSP-CSC6 mounting bracket to the wall using wooden studs.


Caution Make sure that the sheet rock (drywall) on the wall is no more than 5/8 inches thick.

To attach the mounting bracket to the wall, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Using a stud finder or other method, locate the studs in the wall.


Tip A stud finder that has a center-of-stud locator is useful for this procedure.


Step 2 Mark the location of the two studs to use for the mounting bracket.

These studs can be 16, 20, or 24 inches (40.6, 51 or 61 centimeters) apart.

Step 3 (Optional) If your stud finder has a center-of-stud locator, find the center of the stud.

Step 4 Confirm the center of the stud by drilling pilot holes into the wall with the 1/8-inch or 3mm drill bit to locate the left and right edge of the studs.

After you locate the edges, you can determine the center of the stud.

Step 5 Using the mounting bracket as a template and Figure 3-2 as a reference, measure and drill six holes as follows:

a. Drill four 7/32-inch holes in the wall that go into the center of the stud: two holes on the top rail and two holes on the bottom rail.


Note Arrange the bracket so that the row of holes are on top as shown in Figure 3-2. If you mount the bracket upside down, the mounted parts of the CTS 1300 will be too high on the wall. If the bracket has arrows, arrange the bracket so that the arrows on the vertical cross-pieces point upwards.


If required, move the vertical cross-pieces for the bracket inward to accommodate the stud location.

b. Drill two 1/2-inch holes into the sheet rock that go into the slot at each end of the top rail. These holes are not required to go into the stud.


Tip Use a level on the bracket when you measure the holes. Leveling the holes ensures that the bracket is horizontally level when it is mounted.


Figure 3-2 Measuring and Drilling Holes in the Wall for the Mounting Bracket

Step 6 Insert anchors for the two outside holes (the holes that you drilled with a 1/2-inch drill bit) by completing the following steps:

a. Using the anchors that are provided in the accessory kit, move the plastic straps on the anchor until the metal part of the anchor is parallel with the straps.

b. Push the metal part of the anchor through the two outside holes that you drilled.

Figure 3-3 Pushing the Anchor Through the Wall and Stud

c. Turn the plastic straps on the anchor so that the metal part of the anchor is flush and vertical to the inner part of the stud or wall.

d. Slide the plastic cap on the anchors until the cap is flush with the outer part of the wall.

Figure 3-4 Securing the Anchor and Cap to the Wall

e. Snap off the plastic straps that protrude from the wall until the anchors are flush with the wall. Push the straps from side to side to snap them off.

Figure 3-5 Removing the Plastic Straps

Step 7 Attach the mounting bracket to the studs and wall using the following fasteners:

a. Use 5/16-inch lag screws and washers for the four holes that go into the studs. Make sure that the bracket is level and that the arrow on the bracket points upward. At least two screws must go into studs.

b. Use the toggle bolts for the two outside holes that are not required to go into the stud.


Note Arrange the bracket so that the row of holes are on top as shown in Figure 3-6. If the bracket has arrows, arrange the bracket so that the arrows on the vertical cross-pieces point upwards.


Figure 3-6 Attaching the Mounting Bracket to the Wall

Step 8 Install the metal sliders with studs and spacing strips by completing the following steps:

a. Insert two sliders into the lower slots of each horizontal railing.

b. Place the horizontal spacing strip over the inside stud of each slider.

c. Insert a screw into each end of the rail after you insert the sliders and spacing strips.

Figure 3-7 Installing Nylon Spacing Strips and Metal Sliders into Wall Bracket

Step 9 Move the sliders and strips so that they align as closely as possible with the center of the table.

Step 10 Using duct or other tape, tape the strip between the sliders into the slot in the bracket.


Tip The tape prevents the sliders from moving when you install the light reflector.

Step 11 Continue to the "Attaching the Light Reflector, Display, and Cabinet" section to complete installation.


Attaching the Mounting Bracket to a Wall With Steel Studs

This section contains the procedure you use to mount the MSP-CSC6 mounting bracket to the wall using steel studs.

Before starting this procedure, be sure to read the guidelines for walls with steel studs in the "Important Warnings and Cautions" section.

To attach the mounting bracket to the wall, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Using a stud finder or other method, locate the studs in the wall.


Tip A stud finder that has a center-of-stud locator is useful for this procedure.


Step 2 Mark the location of the two studs to use for the mounting bracket.

These studs can be 16, 20, or 24 inches (40.6, 51 or 61 centimeters) apart.

Step 3 (Optional) If your stud finder has a center-of-stud locator, find the center of the stud.

Step 4 Confirm the center of the stud by drilling pilot holes into the wall with the 1/8-inch or 3mm drill bit to locate the left and right edge of the studs.

After you locate the edges, you can determine the center of the stud.

Step 5 Using the mounting bracket as a template and Figure 3-9 as a reference, measure and drill six 1/2-inch holes as follows:


Tip Cisco recommends that, prior to drilling these holes, you either use a 1/2-inch drill bit with a pilot tip, or use a 1/8-inch drill bit to drill pilot holes to ensure that the holes are horizontally aligned and level.


a. Drill four holes that go into the center of the stud: two holes for the top rail and two holes on the bottom rail.


Note Arrange the bracket so that the row of holes are on top as shown in Figure 3-9. If you mount the bracket upside down, the mounted parts of the CTS 1300 will be too high on the wall. If the bracket has arrows, arrange the bracket so that the arrows on the vertical cross-pieces point upwards.


If required, move the vertical cross-pieces for the bracket inward to accommodate the stud location.

b. Drill two holes into the sheet rock that go into the slot at each end of the top rail. These holes are not required to go into the stud.


Note Use a level on the bracket when you measure the holes. Leveling the holes ensures that the bracket is horizontally level when it is mounted.


Figure 3-9 Measuring and Drilling Holes in the Wall for the Mounting Bracket

Step 6 Insert the mounting anchors into the holes that you drilled by completing the following steps:

a. Using the anchors that are provided in the accessory kit, move the plastic straps on the anchor until the metal part of the anchor is parallel with the straps.

b. Push the metal part of the anchor through the stud hole that you drilled.

Figure 3-10 Pushing the Anchor Through the Wall and Stud

Step 7 Turn the plastic straps on the anchor so that the metal part of the anchor is flush and vertical to the inner part of the stud or wall.

Step 8 Slide the plastic cap on the anchor until the cap is flush with the outer part of the wall.

Step 10 Determine the proper placement for the microphones around your table. See Figure 2-1 through Figure 2-8 in Chapter 2 "Cisco TelePresence System 1300 Room Recommendations" for the correct microphone placement.

Step 11 Attach the microphones to the table by peeling the backing off the bottom of the microphone base and stick the microphone to the table.

Step 12 Connect the DVI-to-VGA cable to the codec, using the "VGA input" connection on the codec as shown in Figure 3-44; then, route the cable from the codec to the table.

Step 13 Place the Cisco Unified IP Phone on the table, and route the cable for the IP phone from the codec to the table. The connection for the Cisco Unified IP Phone is shown in Figure 3-44 as a phone icon.

Step 14 Attach and route the cables between the codec and the cameras and table microphones.


Caution Make sure that the power cord plugs are fully plugged into the PDUs, and that the jumper cords are fully plugged into the PDU and wall outlet. Improper connections between the PDUs and the power cord plugs can cause the PDU to overheat and fail.


Note When you connect the Light Cord cables to the dimmer unit (the box on the upper right of the diagram), make sure that you attach one of the cables to the connection that is next to the blue (serial cable) connection on the dimmer unit.



Note If you have a presentation codec, refer to the "Options for the Cisco TelePresence System 1300" chapter of the Cisco TelePresence Hardware Options and Upgrade Guide for the cabling diagram.



Caution Before you install the microphones, perform the following steps to prevent damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD) to the microphone, audio/video extension unit, or codec:

a. Plug the PDU into the wall power.

b. Plug the codec into the PDU.


Note Do not turn on the PDU until you configure the system for the first time in Chapter 4 "First-Time Setup".


a. Discharge each microphone cable by touching the metal cable-connector to the codec or audio/video extension unit cable as shown in Figure 3-43.

b. Hold the cable connector to the codec or audio/video extension unit cable for 3 seconds.

c. Immediately connect the microphone to the codec or audio/video extension unit using the diagram in Figure 3-43.

Step 16 Cover the cables between the table and the cabinet with the cable cover by completing the following steps:

a. Remove the cable cover from Carton 10.

a. Lay the cable cover on the floor between the table and the cabinet.

b. Place the cables into the guides on the underside of the cable cover.

c. Tape the cables into their guides using duct or other tape.

d. Turn the cable cover over so that it hides the cables.

Step 17 Use the cable routing guide to consolidate the cables on the table by performing the following task:

a. Remove the cable routing guide from its packaging in carton 14.

b. Place the guide in the center of the table.

c. Insert the cables for the microphones, DVI-to-VGA cable, and IP phone into the guide.


Tip Use the small slots in the guide for the right and left microphone cables.


Step 18 Assemble the guide by attaching the top to its base using the screws.

Step 19 Attach the cable routing guide to the table by performing one of the following actions:


Note Before you attach the guide to the table, make sure that it is not in camera view.


Remove the adhesive backing from the underside of the guide and stick it to the table.

Attach the cable routing guide anchor to the table, and then place the guide on the anchor, by completing the following steps:

1. Using a 1/4-inch drill bit, drill a 1.125 inch deep hole into the table.

2. Screw the anchor into the hole that you drilled, using the key that is included with the anchor.

3. Place the cable routing guide on top of the anchor.


Note Rotate the anchor as required to rotate the guide into its proper position.
