Replacing an MX2000 High-Voltage Universal (HVAC/HVDC) Power Distribution Module

 

Installing an MX2000 Router High-Voltage Universal (HVAC/HVDC) Power Distribution Module

Depending on whether you are connecting to AC or DC power, these warnings apply to the universal HVAC/HVDC power distribution module (PDM):

Warning

Before performing DC power procedures, disconnect all power sources. To ensure that all power is off, locate the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the off position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the off position.

Warning

Before performing AC power procedures, disconnect all power sources. To ensure that all power is OFF, locate the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the AC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the OFF position.

Warning

Before working on the device or near power supplies, unplug all the power cords from an AC-powered device.

To install a universal HVAC/HVDC power distribution module (PDM) in an MX2000 Router:

  1. Ensure that the voltage across the DC power source cable leads is 0 V and that there is no chance that the cable leads 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. Move the DC circuit breaker on the power input source to the off position.
  4. [Optional]—If you are switching from an AC PDM or 48V DC PDM to a universal PDM, the universal HVAC/HVDC PSMs and PDMs work with either AC or DC bar setting, see Converting an MX2000 Router Between AC and DC Power for details.
  5. Remove the blank panel covering the PDM slot in the chassis.
  6. Open the locking levers on the PDM.
  7. While holding both handles, guide the PDM until the locking levers are inserted into the chassis. With both hands push the locking levers simultaneously until the PDM is fully seated into the chassis (see Figure 1).

  8. Tighten both captive screws on the PDM. Apply between 10 lb-in. (1.13 Nm) to 12 lb-in. (1.35 Nm) of torque to each screw. Do not overtighten the screws.
  9. Starting at one end of the PDM, plug the power cords into the power sockets on the PDM. Press the latch on the side of the power cable before pushing it in. Apply slight pressure so that the power cord is firmly seated in the power socket until you feel it engage. As you plug in each power cord, the power LED for the socket lights up green. See Figure 2.

Before you remove a PDM, be aware of the following:

Note

The minimum number of PDMs must be present in the router at all times while it is operating.

Depending on whether you are connecting to AC or DC power, these warnings apply to the universal HVAC/HVDC power distribution module (PDM):

Warning

Before performing DC power procedures, disconnect all power sources. To ensure that all power is off, locate the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the OFF position.

Note

These warnings apply to the HVAC/HVDC universal PDM:

Warning

Before performing AC power procedures, disconnect all power sources. To ensure that all power is OFF, locate the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the AC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the OFF position.

Warning

Before working on the device or near power supplies, unplug all the power cords from an AC-powered device.

Caution

To maintain proper cooling and prevent thermal shutdown of the operating power supply unit, each PDM slot must contain either a PDM or a blank panel. If you remove a PDM, you must install a replacement PDM or a blank panel shortly after the removal.

Note

After powering off a PDM, wait at least 60 seconds before turning the circuit breaker back on.

  1. Switch off the dedicated customer site circuit breaker for the PDM being removed. Follow your site's procedures for ESD.
  2. 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 the removal process.
  3. Verify that the LEDs on the PDM to be removed are not lit.
  4. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  5. Move the AC or DC circuit breaker on the power input source to the OFF position.
  6. Starting at one end of the PDM, unplug all the power cords. Press the latch on the side of the power cable before pulling it out. See Figure 3.

  7. Loosen the two captive screws on the locking levers, and pull away from the chassis. See .Note

    For the MX2020 Router, pull down the PDM3/Input1 and PDM1/Input1 locking levers to release the PDM from the chassis, and pull up the PDM0/Input0 and PDM2/Input0 locking levers to release the PDM from the chassis.

    Note

    For the MX2010 and MX2008 Routers, pull down the PDM1/Input1 locking levers to release the PDM from the chassis, and pull up the PDM0/Input0 locking levers to release the PDM from the chassis.

  8. The PDM is extended slightly away from the chassis. See Figure 4, Figure 5, and Figure 6.
  9. With both hands, grasp the two handles and gently pull the PDM straight out of the chassis.Caution

    Do not touch the power connectors on the back of the PDM. It can get damaged.

    Note

    Each PDM slot not occupied by a PDM must be covered by a PDM blank panel.

  10. Place the PDM onto an antistatic mat or into a ESD bag.
