Connecting Power to an AC-Powered SRX5600 Services Gateway

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. The power cords are not provided with the services gateway.

To connect the AC power cords to the device for each power supply (see Figure 33):

  1. Locate or obtain the power cords you will use with the services gateway. The power cords must have a plug appropriate for your geographical location.
  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. Move the AC switch next to the appliance inlet on the power supply to the off position (O).
  4. Insert the appliance coupler end of the power cord into the appliance inlet on the power supply.
  5. 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, or as permitted by local code.

  6. Dress the power cord appropriately. Verify that the power cord does not block the air exhaust and access to device components, or drape where people could trip on it.
  7. Repeat Step 1 through Step 6 for the remaining power supplies.
