Connect Power to an AC-Powered Services Gateway

Warning: The device must be properly grounded before you connect the AC power cords.

  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 the SRX 5800 Services Gateway Hardware Guide.
  2. Locate the power cords shipped with the device, which should have a plug appropriate for your geographical location. See the SRX 5800 Services Gateway Hardware Guide.
  3. For each power supply:
    1. Move the power switch above the power supply to the OFF position (O).
    2. Insert the appliance coupler end of the power cord into the appliance inlet above the power supply.
    3. 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.

    4. 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.

  4. Switch the AC switch on each power supply to the ON position () and observe the status LEDs on each power supply faceplate. If an AC power supply is correctly installed and functioning normally, the AC OK and DC OK LEDs light steadily, and the PS FAIL LED does not light.

    If any of the status LEDs indicates that the power supply is not functioning normally, repeat the installation and cabling procedures.
