Connecting Power to an AC-Powered Services Gateway

Caution: Do not mix AC and DC power supplies within the same services gateway. Damage to the device might occur.

You connect AC power to the device by attaching power cords from the AC power sources to the AC appliance inlets located on the power supplies. The power cords are provided.

To connect the AC power cords to the device for each power supply:

  1. Locate the power cord or cords you will use to connect the device to AC power. The power supply is not shipped with an AC power cord, you must order it separately. See the SRX 3400 Services Gateway Hardware Guide or the SRX 3600 Services Gateway Hardware Guide for specifications and model numbers.
  2. Insert the appliance coupler end of the power cord into the appliance inlet on the power supply as shown in Figure 4 (SRX 3400) or Figure 5 (SRX 3600).

  3. Snap the wire bail on the power supply over the power cord to prevent the power cord from accidentally disengaging.
  4. Insert the power cord plug into an external AC power source receptacle.

    Note: Each power supply must be connected to a dedicated AC power feed and a dedicated external circuit breaker. We recommend that you use a 15 A (250 VAC) minimum, or as permitted by local code.

  5. Dress the power cord appropriately. Verify that the power cord does not block the air exhaust and access to device components or drape where people could trip on it.
  6. Repeat steps Step 1 through Step 5 for the remaining power supplies.
