    Installing a C3000 or C5000 Power Supply

    The AC power supply in a C3000 or C5000 Controller is a hot-removable and hot-insertable field-replaceable unit (FRU) located on the far right side of the rear panel: Two AC power supplies can be installed in a C3000 or C5000 Controller. You can remove and replace a single AC power supply without powering off the controller or disrupting external controller functions.

    To install a power supply on a C3000 or C5000 Controller (see Figure 1 and Figure 2):

    1. Taking care not to touch power supply components, pins, leads, or solder connections, remove the power supply from its bag.
    2. Using one hand on the faceplate handle and the other hand on the bottom of the power supply to support its weight, slide the power supply straight into the power supply slot until the power supply is approximately halfway to the back of the controller.
    3. Remove the hand supporting the bottom of the power supply.
    4. Gently slide the power supply straight into the chassis until the power supply is almost fully seated in the slot. The power supply will reach a point where backpressure will prevent the power supply from pushing forward; do not force the power supply fully into the slot at this point of the procedure.
    5. Use your thumb to move the latch at the top of the power supply faceplate to the right, and push the power supply flush into the back of the chassis. Release the latch.
    6. Using a flat screwdriver, turn the screw to the locked position so that the notch in the screw is oriented vertically.
