    MX480 AC Power Electrical Safety Guidelines and Warnings

    The following electrical safety guidelines apply to an AC-powered router:

    • You can order three-wire electrical cords with a grounding-type plug that fits only a grounding-type power outlet. Do not circumvent this safety feature. Equipment grounding should comply with local and national electrical codes.
    • Each AC power supply has one AC appliance inlet. Each inlet requires a dedicated AC power feed and a dedicated customer site circuit breaker. We recommend that you use a dedicated circuit breaker rated at 15 A (250 VAC) minimum, or as required by local code.

      Warning: The router is pluggable type A equipment installed in a restricted-access location. It has a separate protective earthing terminal (sized for UNC 1/4-20 ground lugs) provided on the chassis in addition to the grounding pin of the power supply cord. This separate protective earthing terminal must be permanently connected to earth.

    • The cores in the main lead are colored in accordance with the following code:
      • Green and yellow—Earth
      • Blue—Neutral
      • Brown—Live
