    Check the Control Board Fuses


    To verify Control Board failure by checking the Control Board fuses.


    The M320 router requires fuses for the Control Board. The fuses for the Control Board, Switch Interface Boards (SIBs) and Flexible PIC Concentrators (FPCs) are located in the rear of the midplane behind the power supply in slot PEM0. When the fuse for a Control Board blows, the Control Board stops functioning even though it is installed correctly and the power supplies are providing power to the router.

    Figure 1 shows the location of the fuses in the rear of the midplane for the Control Boards. (The labels shown in the figure do not appear on the actual fuses—the clear cover on every fuse reads BUSS GMT-X—and might not match the labels on the midplane. Ignore the labels on the midplane.)
