Replacing an MX2000 AC Power Supply Module

 

Removing an MX2000 AC Power Supply Module

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

Caution

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

Note

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

To remove an AC PSM (see Figure 1 and Figure 2, and Figure 3):

Note

The minimum number of AC PSMs changes based on the configuration.

  1. With one PSM installed and operational, remove any additional PSMs by turning the power switch to the off (O) position.
  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. Loosen the two captive screws on the PSM faceplate.
  4. While grasping the handle on the PSM faceplate with one hand, use your other hand to guide the PSM away from the chassis.
  5. Pull the PSM straight out of the chassis.Caution

    Do not touch the power connectors on back of the PSM. They can get damaged.

  6. Place the PSM module into an antistatic bag.Note

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

Installing MX2000 Router AC Power Supply Modules

Before you install a PSM, be aware of the following:

Note

The AC PSM is hot-swappable when a minimum number of PSMs installed and operational.

Warning

The AC PSMs have no circuit breakers that can physically disconnect AC current from the router. After AC feeds have been connected to the PDM, the AC voltage is always present on the power midplane and is distributed to the PSM connectors on the power midplane.

Caution

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

Note

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

To install an AC PSM (see Figure 4,Figure 5, or Figure 6:

  1. With one PSM installed and operational, install an additional PSM with the power supply switch in the off (O), or in the on (|) position.Warning

    If there is only one PSM installed and operational, the power supply switch must be placed in the off (O) position.

  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. While grasping the handle on the PSM faceplate with one hand, use your other hand to guide the power supply module into the chassis.
  4. Tighten the captive screws on the PSM faceplate.
  5. Turn on the power switch to the on (|) position.
  6. Verify that the PWR OK LED is lit steadily green.
