Connect Power to an AC Router

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. See the M120 Internet Router Hardware Guide.
  2. Connect the grounding cable to a proper earth ground.
  3. Verify that a licensed electrician has attached the cable lug provided with the router to the grounding cable.
  4. Place the grounding cable lug over the grounding points on the bottom rear of the chassis. The left pair is sized for M6 bolts, and the right pair is sized for UNC 1/4-20 bolts.
  5. Secure the grounding cable lug to the grounding points, first with the washers, then with the screws.
  6. Move the power switch on the power supply faceplate to the standby position.
  7. Insert the appliance coupler end of each power cord into the appliance inlet on the power supply faceplate.
  8. Remove the cable restraint from the lower edge of the power supply faceplate by removing its retainer screw.
  9. Wrap the cable restraint around the power cord, then slide it along the power cord to a position that enables you to reinstall it in the power supply faceplate.
  10. Reinstall the cable restraint by tightening its retainer screw part of the way into the power supply faceplate.
  11. Carefully pull the AC power cords through the cable restraint until you have the desired amount of slack in the power cord.
  12. Tighten the cable restraint retainer screw to hold the power cords in place.
  13. Insert the power cord plugs into an AC power source receptacle. Verify that the power cord does not block access to router components or drape where people could trip on it.

    Note: Each AC power supply has two AC appliance inlets. Each power supply must be connected to a dedicated AC power feed. For 100-120 VAC, both inlets are used. For 200-240 VAC, only the top inlet is used. For information about connecting to AC power sources, see the M120 Internet Router Hardware Guide.
