Maintaining the EX6210 Power Cord Tray

 

Removing the Power Cord Tray from a Rack or Cabinet for an EX6200 Switch

You can remove the power cord tray from a rack or cabinet. (The remainder of this topic uses “rack” to mean “rack or cabinet.”)

Before you begin to remove the power cord tray:

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available to remove the power cord tray:

  • A Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 1, 2, or 3, depending on the size of your rack mounting screws

To remove the power cord tray:

  1. Use the appropriate Phillips (+) screwdriver to remove the four mounting screws that hold the power cord tray in the rack.
  2. Remove the power cord tray and store it in the original shipping box for later use.

Installing the Power Cord Tray in a Rack or Cabinet for an EX6200 Switch

Note

The power cord tray is optional for four-post and two-post rack or cabinet installations of EX6200 switches.

The power cord tray does not ship with the EX6200 switches. You can purchase it separately.

The power cord tray provides a place to organize and tie down the power cords for the power supplies. It also provides support for the front of the EX6210 chassis during installation of the switch in a two-post rack. The front edge of the chassis rests on the upper edge (lip) of the power cord tray.

The power cord tray uses 1 U of rack space (the remainder of this topic uses “rack” to mean “rack or cabinet” ) , so the total space occupied by an EX6210 switch chassis and power cord tray is 15 U.

Ensure that you have the following tools and parts available to install the power cord tray:

  • A Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 1, 2, or 3, depending on the size of your rack mounting screws

  • 4 mounting screws appropriate for your rack to attach the power cord tray to the rack

To install the power cord tray (see Figure 1 and Figure 2):

  1. Remove the power cord tray from the shipping box.
  2. Decide where to position the switch in the rack. If the rack is empty, choose the lowest possible location. See Rack Requirements, and Cabinet Requirements.
  3. Position the power cord tray in the rack space immediately below the position in which you want to install the switch or where the switch is installed (see Figure 1). Line up the screw holes of the power cord tray with the holes in the rack. Use 4 mounting screws appropriate for your rack to attach the power cord tray to the rack.
