Installing an AC Power Supply

To install an AC power supply (see Figure 3):

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage.
  2. Move the AC switch next to the appliance inlet on the power supply to the off position (O).
  3. Using both hands, slide the power supply straight into the chassis until the power supply is fully seated in the chassis slot. The power supply faceplate should be flush with any adjacent power supply faceplates.
  4. Tighten both captive screws at the bottom of the power supply.
  5. Attach the power cord to the power supply.
  6. Route the power cord along the cable restraint towards the left or right corner of the chassis. If needed to hold the power cord in place, thread plastic cable ties, which you must provide, through the openings on the cable restraint.
  7. Attach the power cord to the AC power source, and switch on the dedicated facility circuit breaker for the power supply. Follow the ESD and connection instructions for your site.
  8. Move the AC switch next to the appliance inlet on the power supply to the on position ( | ) and observe the status LEDs on the power supply faceplate. If the power supply is correctly installed and functioning normally, the AC OK and DC OK LEDs light steadily, and the PS FAIL LED is not lit.
