PTX5000 AC Power Electrical Safety Guidelines

 

The following electrical safety guidelines apply to an AC-powered PTX5000 with three-phase AC power supplies:

  • AC-powered PTX5000 routers are shipped with three-phase electrical cords with grounding. Do not circumvent this safety feature. Equipment grounding must comply with local and national electrical codes.

  • For each three-phase delta AC power distribution unit (PDU), you must provide an external listed customer-site circuit breaker rated minimum 60 A (240 VAC) in the building installation, or as required by local code.

  • For each three-phase wye AC PDU, you must provide an external listed customer-site circuit breaker. See PTX5000 AC and DC PDU Electrical and External Circuit Breaker Specifications for details, or as required by local code.

  • The delta cores in the mains lead are labeled as follows:

    • Wire labeled GND—Earth

    • Wire labeled L1

    • Wire labeled L2

    • Wire labeled L3

  • The wye cores in the mains lead are labeled as follows:

    • Wire labeled GND—Earth

    • Wire labeled L1

    • Wire labeled L2

    • Wire labeled L3

    • Wire labeled N
