High-Voltage Second-Generation Universal (MX960-PSM-HV) Power Cord Specifications for the MX960 Router

The MX960-PSM-HV (HVAC or HVDC) power supplies requires a high current cable assembly when set for 30-A input. One end of the cable has an Anderson APP-400 connector, the other end of the cable is bare wire. See Figure 1 and Table 1. These cables are separately orderable and are not shipped automatically with MX960-PSM-HV orders. An example of the right-angle cable and connector is shown in Figure 3. For connection to AC systems, Juniper provides a cable with either a NEMA 30-A connector (Figure 1) or an IEC 330P6W connector (Figure 2).

The MX960-PSM-HV (HVAC or HVDC) power supply has one C20 receptacles on front panel of the power supply. The cover needs to be installed to cover C20 receptacles on PDM on top of the chassis. Input receptacle is APP 2007G type from Anderson rated 30 A 400V.

The high voltage alternating current (HVAC), and high voltage direct current (HVDC) have specific cord requirements. Table 1 provides specifications and plug standards on the power cord provided for each country or region.


The bend radius for the power cord cables is 7 inches. Avoid bending the cable beyond its bend radius when dressing the cables into the cable channels on the rack.

The AC power cord for the router is intended for use with the router only and not for any other use.


Translation from Japanese: The attached power cable is only for this product. Do not use the cable for another product.


In North America, AC power cords must not exceed 4.5 m (approximately 14.75 ft) in length, to comply with National Electrical Code (NEC) Sections 400-8 (NFPA 75, 5-2.2) and 210-52, and Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) Section 4-010(3). You can order AC power cords that are in compliance.


The router is a pluggable type A equipment installed in restricted access location. It has a separate protective earthing terminal (Metric [–M6] and English [–¼-20] screw ground lugs) provided on the chassis in addition to the grounding pin of the power supply cord. This separate protective earth terminal must be permanently connected to earth.


Power cords and cables must not block access to device components or drape where people could trip on them.
