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

- If necessary, remove a blank panel from the rear of the switch.
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.
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.
