Port Covers on the VIM1-SummitStack512 Module

On the VIM1-SummitStack512 module, EMI-protective covers are installed over the port connectors.

Before connecting the stacking cables, remove the connector covers from the ports that will be used.

To remove a connector cover:

  1. On the side of the connector nearest to the inserter/ejector lever, find the notch between the two end tabs on the cover (see Removing a Connector Cover).
  2. At the notch, set a small flat-blade screwdriver firmly against the connector housing.
