    Clearing a PowerAbsent Alarm

    Note: Follow all applicable safety requirements as described in the BTI7800 Series Hardware Overview and Installation Guide.

    1. Check the power distribution to the chassis:
      • Ensure that each PEM is properly seated and the power connection to it is secure.
      • Ensure that each external source DC power circuit breaker is on.
      • Ensure that each the external power wires are delivering power correctly.
    2. Check for alarms on the PEM .
      • If the alarm clears, you have successfully completed this procedure.
      • If the alarm does not clear, contact your next level of support.
