Estimate cabinet weight

The cabinet reliably and safely transports up to 909.1 kg (2000 lb) of capacity. You need to know the approximate weight of the cabinet so that you can safely move it.

Steps

  1. Use the following table to calculate the approximate total weight of your cabinet.

    The total weight of the cabinet depends on the number and type of trays that are installed in the cabinet.

    EF550 flash array 24.63 kg (54.32 lb) Maximum configuration
    EF560 flash array 24.63 kg (54.32 lb) Maximum configuration
    DE1600 drive tray 26.3 kg (58 lb) Maximum configuration
    DE5600 drive tray 25.31 kg (55.8 lb) Maximum configuration
    DE6600 drive tray 104.1 kg (229.6 lb) Maximum configuration
  2. Review the following notes.
    CAUTION:
    Remove all drives from the DE6600 drive tray before moving the cabinet to its final position.
    Attention: Possible equipment damage – Cabinets with DE6600 drive trays ship without drives to reduce shipping weight. Because a fully-populated cabinet with DE6600 drive trays can weigh more than 1247.3 kg (2750 lb), make sure that you move the cabinet into place before you load the drives, and make sure that the floor load capability of the cabinet’s destination supports that much weight.
    Attention: Possible damage to tray components – Do not place a DE6600 drive tray on a flat surface. Install the DE6600 drive tray in the cabinet before operating or moving drawers.
