Remove a DC Power Supply

To remove a DC power supply, follow this procedure (see Figure 7 and Figure 8):

  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. Make sure the router is attached to a proper earth ground.
  2. Press the power switch for the power supply (located on the power supply faceplate) to the OFF (O) position.

    If you are power cycling the power supply rather than shutting it off for a time, wait at least 60 seconds after turning it off before turning it back on. If you need to power it off again, wait for at least 60 seconds after powering it on.

  3. Shut off the power flowing to the power supply from the external power source, so that the voltage across the leads of the power cables is 0 V. Ensure that there is no chance that the cable leads might become active during the procedure.
  4. Loosen the screws securing the clear cover over the field-wiring terminals and remove the cover.
  5. Using a #1 Phillips screwdriver, turn the screw on each field-wiring terminal counter-clockwise to loosen the terminal connector from around the cable.
  6. Remove the cables from the terminal connectors and from the hook located on the faceplate to the right of the field-wiring terminal.
  7. Loosen the thumbscrew at each corner of the power supply faceplate, using a Phillips screwdriver if necessary.
  8. Grasp the handle on the power supply faceplate and pull firmly to slide the unit about halfway out of the chassis.
  9. Place one hand under the power supply to support it, then slide it completely out of the chassis.
