Connecting the SRX3600 Services Gateway to an AC Power Source


You connect AC power to the services gateway by attaching power cords from the AC power sources to the AC appliance inlets located on the power supplies.


To meet safety and electromagnetic interference (EMI) requirements and to ensure proper operation, you must properly ground the services gateway chassis before connecting power. See Grounding the SRX3600 Services Gateway for instructions.


Do not mix AC and DC power supplies within the same services gateway. Damage to the services gateway might occur.

To connect the AC power cords to the services gateway for each power supply:

  1. Locate the power cord or cords you will use to connect the services gateway to AC power. The services gateway is not shipped with AC power cords. You must order them separately using the model numbers shown in SRX3600 Services Gateway AC Power Cord Specifications.
  2. Insert the appliance coupler end of the power cord into the appliance inlet on the power supply, as shown in Figure 1.

  3. Snap the wire bail on the power supply over the power cord to prevent the power cord from accidentally disengaging.
  4. Insert the power cord plug into an external AC power source receptacle.Note

    Each power supply must be connected to a dedicated AC power feed and a dedicated external circuit breaker. We recommend that you use a 15 A (250 VAC) minimum, or as permitted by local code.

  5. Dress the power cord appropriately. Verify that the power cord does not block the air exhaust and access to services gateway components or drape where people could trip on it.
  6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 for the remaining power supplies.

If power is lost to the services gateway, the Power-On/Power-Off state is retained. For example, if the services gateway loses power while it is switched on, when power returns, the services gateway will still be in the On state.
