AC Power Cord Specifications for an EX 8200 series Switch

Each AC power supply has a single AC appliance inlet located on the power supply that requires a dedicated AC power feed. Most sites distribute power through a main conduit that leads to frame-mounted power distribution panels, one of which can be located at the top of the rack that houses the switch. An AC power cord connects each power supply to the power distribution panel.

Each detachable AC power cord is 2.5 meters (approximately 8 feet) long. The appliance coupler at the female end of the cord inserts into the AC appliance inlet on the faceplate of the AC power supply. The coupler type is C19 as described by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard 60320. The plug at the male end of the power cord fits into the power source outlet that is standard for your geographical location.

Note: In North America, AC power cords must not exceed 4.5 meters (approximately 15 feet) in length, to comply with National Electrical Code (NEC) Sections 400-8 (NFPA 75, 5-2.2) and 210-52 and Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) Section 4-010(3). The cords shipped with the switch are in compliance.

Table 1 lists the AC power cord specifications for an EX 8200 series switch for the countries and regions listed in the table.

Caution: Power cords must not block access to switch components. We recommend that you route all AC power cord cables through the power cord tray provided with the switch.

Warning: The switch is pluggable type A equipment installed in a restricted-access location. It has a separate protective earthing terminal provided on the chassis in addition to the grounding pin of the power supply cord. This separate protective earth terminal must be permanently connected to earth ground. See Connecting Earth Ground to an EX-series Switch.
