    Connecting Power to an AC-Powered C3000 or C5000 Controller

    Note: C3000 and C5000 Controllers now ship with a retainer clip for the power cord. The retainer clip prevents accidental disconnection of the power cord by securing the cord to the chassis. Steps 1 and 3 apply only to appliances equipped with retainer clips.

    To connect AC power to a C3000 or C5000 Controller (see Figure 1):

    1. Squeeze the two sides of the power cord retainer clip and insert the L-shaped ends of the wire clip into the holes in the bracket on each side of the AC appliance inlet.

    2. Insert the coupler end of the power cord into the AC appliance inlet.

      If your controller contains two power supplies, plug each power cord into a separate power circuit to ensure that the device continues to receive power if one of the power circuits fails.

    3. Push the power cord into the slot in the adjustment nut of the power cord retainer clip. Turn the nut until it is snug against the base of the coupler and the slot in the nut is turned 90° from the top of the switch.

    Note: We suggest that you use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) with your C Series Controller.

    Note: To provide redundancy, do not terminate Power A and Power B leads at the same power source.
