Caution

Caution

Do not attach the AC power cord to the EPS-LD unit until the unit is properly grounded at the electrical outlet and the redundant power supply cord is connected.

One end of the EPS-LD cord has a keyed connector to ensure correct alignment of the connector. The key is a plastic tab on the cord connector housing that fits into the EPS-LD unit.
