Connecting AC Power to an EX6200 Switch

 

EX6200 switches can be configured with up to four AC power supplies. After you have installed at least one power supply, you can connect power to the switch.

Caution

Mixing different types of power supplies (AC and DC or AC power supplies of different wattage) in the same chassis is not supported.

Mixing low-voltage input line and high-voltage input line power feeds in the same chassis is not supported.

Note

Each AC power supply must be connected to a dedicated AC power feed.

Before you begin to connect power to the switch:

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available to connect power to the switch:

Warning

Ensure that the power cords do not block access to switch components or drape where people can trip on them.

To connect AC power to an EX6200 switch:

  1. Attach the ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point on the chassis.
  2. Ensure that the power supply is fully inserted and secured in the chassis. See Installing an AC Power Supply in an EX6200 Switch.
  3. Flip the Enable switch on the power supply faceplate to the Standby position.
  4. Squeeze the two sides of the power cord retainer clip, and insert the L-shaped ends of the clip into the holes in the bracket around the AC appliance inlet on the AC power supply faceplate. See Figure 1 or Figure 2.

  5. Locate the power cord or cords shipped with the switch; the cords have plugs appropriate for your geographical location.
  6. Insert the coupler end of the power cord into the AC appliance inlet on the AC power supply faceplate. Note

    If the optional power cord tray is installed, thread the power cord through the power cord tray.

  7. Push the cord (close to the coupler end) into the slot in the adjustment nut of the power cord retainer. Rotate the nut until it is tight against the base of the coupler and the slot in the nut is turned 90° from the top of the switch. See Figure 3 or Figure 4.
  8. Repeat Steps 4 through 7 if you are connecting a power cord to the second appliance inlet on the 5000 W AC power supply.
  9. If the AC power source outlet has a power switch, set it to the OFF (0) position.
  10. Insert the power cord plug into an AC power source outlet.
  11. Repeat Steps 9 and 10 if you are connecting a power cord to the second appliance inlet on the 5000 W AC power supply.
  12. If the AC power source outlet has a power switch, set it to the ON (|) position.
  13. Verify that the INPUT OK LED on the power supply faceplate is lit and is on steadily.
  14. Repeat Steps 2 through 13 for the remaining power supplies.
