Physical Installation

  1. Open the box, verify the contents, and visually inspect the items for any shipping damage. If necessary, contact Haivision for return instructions.

  2. Unpack the box and position the hardware on a stable work surface. Optionally, mount the device in a server rack.


    The Kraken CR is an indoor appliance and should be kept in a dry, dust free environment.


    When mounting in a server rack, refer to your rack vendor's documentation as well as the included rack mount instructions in the rail kit provided with your system. Improper rack mounting could cause serious harm to equipment and/or people near the rack. Please be sure to properly and securely mount your hardware. 

    The Kraken CR takes in fresh air from the top rear air vent and pushes it out the front. Do not stack the units or block the air flow in any way as it can cause the unit to overheat.


    This equipment is susceptible to damage by static electricity. Proper handling and grounding is essential. Use a grounded antistatic wrist strap, foot strap, or equivalent safety equipment to prevent Electrostatic discharge (ESD) when you install the appliance.

    Do not open the appliance. There are no user-serviceable parts inside the unit. Making unauthorized changes will void the warranty.

    Do not remove the SSD card while the appliance is running.
