Installing an M10i AC Power Supply


To install an AC power supply (see Figure 1):

  1. Verify that the switch on the power supply faceplate is in the OFF (O) position.
  2. Locate the AC power cord shipped with the router, which should be appropriate for your geographical location (see M10i AC Power Cord Specifications).
  3. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  4. Grasp the handle on the power supply faceplate with one hand and place the other hand under the supply to support it.
  5. Align the rear of the supply with the slide guides inside the chassis and slide the supply into the chassis until it contacts the midplane.
  6. Tighten (but do not overtighten) the thumbscrews on the power supply faceplate.
  7. Insert the appliance coupler end of the AC power cord into the appliance inlet on the power supply faceplate and insert the plug into an AC power source receptacle. Verify that the AC power cord does not block access to router components or drape where people could trip on it.
  8. Press the power switch on the faceplate to the ON ( | ) position. When the power supply has powered on successfully, the green OUTPUT OK LED lights steadily.Note

    After powering off a power supply, wait at least 60 seconds before turning it back on. After powering on a power supply, wait at least 60 seconds before turning it off.

    If the router is completely powered off when you power on the power supply, the Routing Engine boots as the power supply completes its startup sequence. If the Routing Engine finishes booting and you need to power off the router again, see Powering Off the M10i Router .

    After a power supply is powered on, it can take up to 60 seconds for status indicators—such as the output status LED on the power supply, the command display output, and messages on the LED display on the craft interface—to indicate that the power supply is functioning normally. Ignore error indicators that appear during the first 60 seconds.
