Clearing an EqptBrownout Alarm

Note

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

  1. Retrieve environment information to view voltage data for the UFM and each PEM installed in the chassis:
    show environment voltage
  2. Check for and clear alarms raised against the PEMs, and ensure that they are properly seated and connected to power.
  3. Check for alarms on the UFM.
    • If the alarm has cleared, you have completed this procedure.

    • If the alarm does not clear, contact your next level of support.
