Connect AC Power to an AC-Powered MX104 Router

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

  • AC power cords with C15 plugs
  • ESD grounding wrist strap
  1. Locate power cords that have a plug appropriate for your geographical location. For more information, see the MX104 3D Universal Edge Router 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 10 A (100 VAC), or as required by local code.

  5. Secure the power cord with the power cord retainer clip.
  6. 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.
  7. Repeat Step 1 through Step 6 for the remaining power supply.
  8. Observe the LED on the power supply. The LED blinks green as it transitions online. If the power supply is functioning normally, the LED lights green steadily.

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