Removing an Input Power Tray

To remove an input power tray:

  1. Make sure that the voltage across the DC power source cable leads is 0 V and that there is no chance that the cables might become active during installation.
  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. Switch the circuit breakers on the power supply faceplate to the OFF position (O).
  4. Loosen the captive screws that secure the input power tray to the power supply.
  5. Grasp the metal handle of the input power tray and pull it down toward you. The circuit breakers are switched off as you pull the handle down.
  6. Remove the input power tray from the power supply.

Disconnecting the DC Power Cables from an Input Power Tray

To disconnect the DC power cables from an input power tray:

  1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to loosen the screws on the metal input power tray cover. Remove the metal input power tray cover.
  2. Remove the cable restraint. Use a Phillips screwdriver.
  3. Remove the positive (+) DC source power cable lugs to the RTN (return) terminals on the upper row. Use a 7/16-in. (11 mm) nut driver to remove first the nuts, then the washers (see Figure 2).

  4. Remove the power lug separator over the terminal studs on the lower row of the input power tray.
  5. Remove the nuts and washers from the power terminal studs on the lower row.
  6. Remove the negative (–) DC source power cable lugs to the –48V (input) terminals on the lower row of the input power tray. Use a 7/16-in. (11 mm) nut driver to remove first the nuts, then the washers(see Figure 3).

Connecting the DC Power Cables to the Replacement Input Power Tray

To connect the DC power cables from the input power tray:

  1. Remove the nuts and washers from the power terminal studs on the lower row.
  2. Attach the negative (–) DC source power cable lugs to the –48V (input) terminals on the lower row of the input power tray. Use a 7/16-in. (11 mm) nut driver to remove first the nuts, then the washers (see Figure 4).

  3. Reinstall the power lug separator over the terminal studs on the lower row of the input power tray.
  4. Remove the nuts and washers from the power terminal studs on the upper row.
  5. Remove the positive (+) DC source power cable lugs to the RTN (return) terminals on the upper row. Use a 7/16-in. (11 mm) nut driver to remove first the nuts, then the washers(see Figure 5).

  6. Attach the cable restraint. Use a Phillips screwdriver.
  7. Reinstall the metal input power tray cover. Use a Phillips screwdriver to tighten the screws on the metal input power tray cover.

Installing an Input Power Tray

To install a power supply input tray (Figure 6):

  1. Make sure that the voltage across the DC power source cable leads is 0 V and that there is no chance that the cables might become active during installation.
  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. Switch the circuit breakers on the power supply faceplate to the OFF position (O).
  4. Slide the input power tray into the power supply.
  5. Grasp the metal handle of the input power tray and push it up toward the power supply.
  6. Tighten the captive screws that secure the input power tray to the power supply.
