Connect AC Power to an AC-Powered ACX2200 Series Router

To connect power to the AC-powered router, you need the following tools:

  1. Locate the power cords, which should have a plug appropriate for your geographical location. See the ACX2200 Universal Access Routers Hardware Guide.
  2. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. Insert the appliance coupler end of the power cord into the appliance inlet on the power supply.
  4. Insert the power cord plug into an external AC power source receptacle.

    Note: Each power supply must be connected to a dedicated AC power feed and a dedicated customer site circuit breaker. We recommend that you use a dedicated customer site circuit breaker rated for 2 A (100 VAC) or 1 A (240 VAC), or as required by local code.

  5. Dress the power cord appropriately. Verify that the power cord does not block the air exhaust and access to router components, or drape where people could trip on it.
  6. Repeat Step 1 through Step 5 for the remaining power supplies.
  7. Observe the system LED on the router. If an AC power supply is functioning normally, the system LED lights green steadily.

    If the system LED is not lit, the power supply is not functioning normally. Repeat the cabling procedures.
