Installing the AI Computer

The AI computer comes in a ready to install, IP65 rated electrical panel with internal power supplies, network switch and other supporting hardware. We typically mount the electrical panel on the right or back side of the bench at a readily accessible service height to match your factories requirements for accessibility. The electrical panel contains two carbon filters, one in the fan and one in the outlet that should be changed every 6 months or more regularly depending upon the amount of particulates in your factories environment.

Clamping to workbench

We recommend four points of attachment between the workbench and the Rapta production stand, two equally spaced at the back and one on the left and right bottom bars. Clamping can be achieved through cross bolting and drilling or a permanent stainless steel C-Clamp.
