Installing an 1100 W DC Power Supply

Before you begin

Before installing a Summit 1100 W DC power supply:

  • Verify that the switch rack or chassis has been grounded.
  • Verify that the airflow direction for the power supply is the same as the airflow direction of the installed fan modules in the switch.

About this task

To install the power supply, follow these steps:

Procedure

  1. Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap to your bare wrist and connect the metal end to an appropriate ground point on the rack.
  2. If necessary, remove a blank panel from the rear of the switch.
  3. Verify that the power supply is right side up.
    The power supply should be oriented as shown in Installing an 1100 W DC Power Supply.
  4. Verify that the direction of ventilation airflow is the same for both the power supply and the switch.

    In a switch with front-to-back airflow, the fan modules are labeled Air Out.

    In a switch with back-to-front airflow, the fan modules are labeled Air In.

  5. Carefully slide the power supply all the way into the power supply bay.
