Replacing an MX2008 AC Power Supply Module

Removing an MX2008 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 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 off a PSM, wait at least 60 seconds before turning it back on.

To remove an AC PSM (see Figure 1):

Note

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

  1. With one PSM installed and operational, remove any additional PSM 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 an AC PSM must be covered by a PSM blank panel.

Installing an MX2008 AC Power Supply Module

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 line 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 2):

  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.

Installing an MX2000 Router Three-Phase Wye AC Power Distribution Module

Each three-phase wye AC PDM weighs approximately 12 lb (5.44 kg). To install a three-phase wye AC PDM:

Warning

Before performing AC power procedures, ensure that power is removed from the AC circuit. To ensure that all power is off, locate the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the AC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the off position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the off position.

Caution

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

Note

After powering off a PDM, wait at least 60 seconds before turning the circuit breaker back on.

Note

The PDMs are hot swappable in a redundant configuration. However, you cannot convert to a DC configuration while the system is on.

  1. 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. [Optional]—If you are switching from a DC PDM to an AC PDM, see Converting an MX2000 Router Between AC and DC Power for instructions on how to change the setting on the internal bar of the power distribution unit (PDU) cage to AC.
  4. Pull the locking levers on either side of the faceplate away until they stop.
  5. Using both hands, slide the PDM into the chassis until you feel resistance (see Figure 20, Figure 21, or Figure 22.
