Safety Considerations for Installing Power Supplies
Only trained service personnel should perform service to Extreme Networks switches and their components.
Trained service personnel have read all related installation manuals, have the technical training and experience necessary to be aware of the hazards to which they are exposed in performing a task, and are aware of measures to minimize the danger to themselves or other persons.
CautionExtreme Redundant Power Supplies (RPS) do not support the ability for the RPS to be connected to an operational switch. Connecting an RPS to an operational switch can have an adverse effect on the switch. It is best practice that both the switch and the RPS be powered down prior to cabling them together. Once the cabling is completed, turn on the RPS, then turn on the switch.
WarningExtreme Networks AC power supplies do not have switches for turning the unit on and off. To disconnect the power to an Extreme Networks AC power supply, remove the wall plug from the electrical outlet. Make sure that this connection is easily accessible.
WarningWhen the power supply is outside the chassis (not installed), do not plug the power supply into an electrical outlet. Plugging an uninstalled AC power supply into an electrical outlet exposes you to a hazardous energy and is a potential fire hazard.
CautionBefore installing or removing any components of the system, or before carrying out any maintenance procedures, read the safety information provided in Safety and Regulatory Information. Not following these precautions can result in equipment damage or shock.
CautionBe sure that proper ESD controls are in use before switch maintenance is performed. This includes but is not limited to wrist straps that are grounded to the switch chassis and earth grounds.
