    AC Power Cord Specifications for the MX80 Router

    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 router. An AC power cord connects each power supply to the power distribution panel.

    You can order detachable AC power cords, each approximately 8 ft (2.5 m) long that supply AC power to the router. The C13 appliance coupler at the female end of the cord inserts into the AC appliance inlet coupler, type C14 as described by International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard 60320. The plug at the male end of the power cord fits into the power source receptacle that is standard for your geographical location.

    Table 1 provides specifications on the AC power cord provided for each country or region.

    Note: In North America, AC power cords must not exceed approximately 14.75 ft (4.5 m) 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). You can order AC power cords that are in compliance.

    Warning: The router is pluggable type A equipment installed in a restricted-access location. It has a separate protective earthing terminal (sized for SAE 10-32 ground screws) 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.

    Caution: Power cords and cables must not block access to device components or drape where people could trip on them.
