Installing a Power Supply in a TCX1000-RDM20

 

The power supplies in a TCX1000-RDM20 are hot-removable and hot-insertable field-replaceable units (FRUs)—you can remove and replace them without powering off the TCX1000-RDM20 or disrupting the functions.

Caution

Replace the power supply within 1 minute of removal to prevent chassis overheating. Before removing the power supply, ensure that you have a replacement power supply available.

Before you install a power supply in a TCX1000-RDM20, ensure that you have taken the necessary precautions to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage (see Prevention of Electrostatic Discharge Damage).

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

  • ESD grounding strap

To install a power supply in a TCX1000-RDM20 (see Figure 1 and Figure 2):

  1. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist to prevent damage to the equipment caused by static discharge. Connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  2. Taking care not to touch power supply components, pins, leads, or solder connections, remove the power supply from its bag.
  3. Using both hands, place the power supply in the power supply slot on the FRU panel of the TCX1000-RDM20 and slide it in until it is fully seated and the locking lever slides into place.

Note

Each power supply must be connected to a dedicated power source outlet. We recommend that each power supply is connected to a different power source for redundancy purposes.

Note

If you have a Juniper Care service contract, register any addition, change, or upgrade of hardware components at https://www.juniper.net/customers/support/tools/updateinstallbase/. Failure to do so can result in significant delays if you need replacement parts. This note does not apply if you replace existing components with the same type of component.
