Connecting the SRX1400 Services Gateway to an AC Power Supply

Warning: The device must be properly grounded before you connect the AC power cords.

Caution: Do not mix AC and DC power supplies within the same services gateway. Damage to the device might occur.

You connect AC power to the device by attaching power cords from the AC power sources to the AC appliance inlets located on the power supplies.

To connect the AC power cords to the device for each power supply:

  1. Locate the power cord or cords with the type of plug appropriate for your geographical location to connect the device to AC power.

    For more information about model numbers, see the SRX1400 AC Power Cord Specifications topic in the SRX1400 Services Gateway Hardware Documentation.

  2. Insert the appliance coupler end of the power cord into the appliance inlet on the power supply, as shown in Figure 31.

  3. Snap the wire bail on the power supply over the power cord to prevent the power cord from accidentally disengaging.
  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 external circuit breaker. We recommend that you use a 15 A (250 VAC) minimum circuit breaker, or as permitted by local code.

  5. Dress the power cord appropriately.
  6. Verify that the power cord does not block the air exhaust or access to device components and does not cause a tripping hazard.
  7. Repeat Steps 1 through 5 for the second power supply.

If the PWR LED indicates that the power supply is not functioning normally, repeat the installation and cabling procedures.

Note: If power is lost to the services gateway, the Power-On/Power-Off state is retained. For example, if the services gateway loses power while the device is on, when power returns, the device will still be in the On state.
