Installing an AC Power Supply in an EX4300 Switch

 

The AC power supply in EX4300 switches is a hot-removable and hot-insertable field-replaceable unit (FRU) installed in the rear panel of the switch: You can remove and replace it without powering off the switch or disrupting switch functions.

Caution

Do not mix:

  • AC and DC power supplies in the same chassis

  • Power supplies with different airflow labels (AIR IN (AFI) and AIR OUT (AFO)) in the same chassis.

  • Fan modules with different airflow labels (AIR IN (AFI) and AIR OUT (AFO)) in the same chassis.

  • Power supplies and fan modules with different airflow labels (AIR IN (AFI) and AIR OUT (AFO)) in the same chassis.

Before you install an AC power supply in the switch:

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available to install the power supply:

  • ESD grounding strap

  • Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2

Note

Each power supply must be connected to a dedicated power source outlet.

The power supply slots are at the right end of the rear panel on 24-port and 48-port switches, and at the left end on 32-port switches. Figure 1 shows how to install an AC power supply in 24-port or 48-port switches except EX4300-48MP and EX4300-48MP-S switches. The procedure is the same for 32-port switches. Figure 2 shows how to install an AC power supply in EX4300-48MP and EX4300-48MP-S switches.

To install an AC power supply in the switch:

  1. Ensure that you have the correct power supply. The label AIR IN (AFI) or AIR OUT (AFO) on the power supply must match the label AIR IN (AFI) or AIR OUT (AFO) on the installed fan module.
  2. Wrap and fasten one end of an ESD wrist strap around your bare wrist, and connect the other end of the strap to the ESD point on the switch.
  3. If the power supply slot has a cover panel on it, loosen the captive screws on the cover panel by using your fingers or the screwdriver. Hold the captive screw and gently pull it outward to remove the cover panel. Save the cover panel for later use.
  4. Taking care not to touch power supply pins, leads, or solder connections, remove the power supply from the bag.
  5. Using both hands, place the power supply in the power supply slot on the rear panel of the switch and slide it in until it is fully seated and the ejector lever fits into place.
