Connecting the MX2008 to AC Power

 

Installing an MX2008 Three-Phase Wye AC Power Cord

To install a three-phase wye AC power cord:

  1. Switch off the customer site circuit breakers to the PDM being removed. Make sure that the voltage across the AC power source cord is 0 V and that there is no chance that the cord might become active during the installation process.
  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. Switch all the power switches on the PSM faceplates to the off (O) position.Note

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

  4. Using a number 2 Phillips (+) screwdriver, loosen the four screws on the cover of the metal wiring compartment that protects the AC terminal block.
  5. Remove the cover of the metal AC wiring compartment.
  6. Unscrew the retaining nut from the AC power cord.
  7. Place the retaining nut inside the metal wiring compartment.
  8. Put the wires of the AC power cord through the hole of the retaining nut and rubber grommet.
  9. Put the wires of the AC power cord through the hole of the metal wiring compartment.
  10. Connect the wires to the AC terminal block on the three-phase delta AC PDM (see Figure 1). Loosen each of the input terminal or grounding point screws, and insert the wire into the grounding point or input terminal, and tighten the screw (see Table 1 for approved AC wire gauge).

    To insert wires into the terminal block that serves six PSMs:

    1. Insert the grounding wire into the grounding point labeled GND.

    2. Insert the wire labeled L1 into the input terminal labeled A1.

    3. Insert the wire labeled L2 into the input terminal labeled B1.

    4. Insert the wire labeled L3 into the input terminal labeled C1.

    5. Insert the wire labeled N into the input terminal labeled N1.

    Note

    The three-phase wye AC PDM terminal blocks will be flipped depending on which slot the PDM gets plugged into.

    Note

    The color of each AC power wire might vary. The MX2008 chassis is not sensitive to phase rotation sequence—either CW or CCW will operate correctly.

    Caution

    Wire label configuration is for Juniper Networks supplied cable only. If using your own cable, make sure you use the proper connections.

    To insert wires into the terminal block that serves three PSMs:

    1. Insert the grounding wire into the grounding point labeled GND.

    2. Insert the wire labeled L1 into the input terminal labeled A2.

    3. Insert the wire labeled L2 into the input terminal labeled B2.

    4. Insert the wire labeled L3 into the input terminal labeled C2.

    5. Insert the wire labeled N into the input terminal labeled N2.

    Note

    The terminal connections have either slotted screws or hex screws. Use a 1/4-in. slotted screwdriver for the slotted screws. Use a 5/32-in. (4 mm) Allen wrench for the 5/16-in. hex screws.

    Warning

    To protect power supplies from input voltage that may be caused by mis-wired PDMs, before reinstalling the metal cover to the wiring compartment apply AC voltage to the PDM (with disengaged PSM) to make sure that two LEDs on the PDM are lit green and that the AC voltage between AC terminal blocks A1-N1, B1-N1, C1-N1, A2-N2, B2-N2, and C2-N2 for three-phase wye PDM is not more than 264 VAC when measured with a DVM. Then turn off the AC breaker de-energizing the PDM and install the metal cover and engage all AC PSMs.

    Note

    Three-phase wye AC wire assembly kits can be purchased from Juniper Networks.

    Note

    We recommend that you use the proper gauge wire in order for the cable clamps to hold the AC cables. Using smaller gauge wiring will result in the cable clamps not tightening properly.

    Warning

    Power connections must be performed by a licensed electrician only.

  11. Verify that the power cord wire connections are correct.
  12. Screw the retaining nut onto the AC power cord to secure it to the metal wiring compartment.
  13. Reinstall the metal PDM wiring cover, and using a number 2 Phillips (+) screwdriver, tighten the four captive screws on the metal AC wiring compartment.
  14. Verify that the AC power cord is not touching or blocking access to router components, and that it does not drape where people could trip on it.
  15. Remove the ESD grounding strap from the ESD points on the chassis. Connect the strap to an approved site ESD ground point. See the instructions for your site.
  16. Connect the AC power cord plug to the power source.
  17. Switch on the customer site circuit breakers to provide voltage to the AC power cord.
  18. Remove the ESD grounding strap from the approved site ESD grounding point. See the instructions for your site. Reconnect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  19. Verify the LED on the PDM faceplate is lit steadily, indicating that the AC terminal block is receiving power.
  20. Switch the power switch on the PSM to the on position (|) to provide power to the router components.Note

    After a PDM is powered on, it can take up to 60 seconds for status indicators—such as the LEDs on the PDM, the command output displays, and messages on the LED display on the craft interface—to indicate that the PDM is functioning normally. Ignore error indicators that appear during the first 60 seconds.

Installing MX2008 AC Power Supply Modules

To install an MX2008 AC PSM:

  1. Verify that the power switch on the PSM is in the off (O) position.
  2. On the PSM, slide the plastic cover away from the input mode switch to expose the dual DIP switches. Move the input mode DIP switch to the on or off position for the desired power supply feed configuration (see Figure 2). For available switch positions on the AC PSM, see MX2000 AC Power Supply Module Description.Note

    The DIP switches are used only to indicate presence of a feed. If both feeds are present, power is always drawn from feed 0. Power will be drawn from feed 1 only if feed 0 fails. A PSM failure triggers the alarm LED on the craft interface.
