Connecting Power to AC-Powered VXA1000 Series Media Flow Engines

The power supply in a VXA Series Media Flow Engine is located on the rear panel.

Ensure that you have a power cord appropriate for your geographical location.

Ensure that you have connected the appliance chassis to earth ground.

Caution: To meet safety and electromagnetic interference (EMI) requirements and to ensure proper operation, you must connect the appliances to earth ground before you connect them to power. The appliance gets additional grounding when you plug the power supply in the appliance into a grounded AC power outlet by using the AC power cord appropriate for your geographical location (see AC Power Cord Specifications for VXA Series Media Flow Engines).

To connect AC power to the appliance:

  1. Locate the power cord shipped with the appliance; the cords have plugs appropriate for your geographical location. See AC Power Cord Specifications for VXA Series Media Flow Engines.

    Warning: Ensure that the power cord does not drape where people can trip on it or block access to appliance components.

  2. Insert the coupler end of the power cord into the AC power cord inlet on the rear panel.
  3. If the AC power source outlet has a power switch, set it to the off (0) position.
  4. Insert the power cord plug into an AC power source outlet.
  5. If the AC power source outlet has a power switch, set it to the on (|) position.
