DC Power Source Cabling for the MX960 Router
Figure 1 shows a typical DC source cabling arrangement.
The DC power supplies in slots
PEM1 must be powered by dedicated power feeds derived
A, and the DC power supplies in
be powered by dedicated power feeds derived from feed
B. This configuration provides the commonly deployed
A/B feed redundancy for the system.
You must ensure that power connections maintain the
proper polarity. The power source cables might be labeled
(–) to indicate their
polarity. There is no standard color coding for DC power cables. The
color coding used by the external DC power source at your site determines
the color coding for the leads on the power cables that attach to
the terminal studs on each power supply.
For field-wiring connections, use copper conductors only.
Power cords and cables must not block access to device components or drape where people could trip on them.
