Connecting Power to an AC-Powered SRX5800 Services Gateway

Caution: Do not mix AC and DC power supplies within the same services gateway. Damage to the services gateway 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 chassis above the power supplies. If the services gateway is powered by high-capacity power supplies, you also connect AC feeds to AC appliance inlets located on the power supplies themselves. The power cords are not provided with the services gateway; you must order them separately.

To connect the AC power cords to the services gateway (see Figure 37 and Figure 38):

  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 ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. Move the AC input switch on the chassis above each power supply to the off  (O) position. If the services gateway is equipped with high-capacity AC power supplies, you must also move the AC input switch on each power supply to the off  (O) position.
  4. For each installed AC power supply, connect a power cord to the appliance inlet on the chassis directly above the power supply.
  5. If your services gateway is equipped with high-capacity AC power supplies, you must also connect a power cord to the appliance inlet located on each power supply.
  6. Insert the power cord plugs 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 15 A (250 VAC) minimum, or as required by local code.

  7. Dress the power cords appropriately. Verify that the power cords do not block the air exhaust and access to services gateway components, or drape where people could trip on them.
  8. Repeat Step 3 through Step 7 for the remaining power supplies.
