Power Supply Connection

To connect the services gateway to an AC power supply:

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the other end of the ESD strap to the ESD point on the rack.
  2. Insert the appliance coupler end of a power cord into the appliance inlet on the power supply faceplate.
  3. Insert the plug into an AC power source receptacle.

Note: The services gateway must be connected to earth ground during normal operation. The protective earthing terminal on the rear of the chassis is provided to connect the services gateway to ground.

Caution: We recommend using a surge protector for the power connection.

Note: Use the cable tie holder to secure the power cord on to the power supply point.

Note: We strongly recommend that you use only the 3-prong power cord supplied with your services gateway. If you are using a 2-prong power cord, then ensure that your services gateway is adequately grounded using the grounding point available on the back panel of the chassis.
