Installing a Summit 750 W AC Power Supply into the EPS-C2

The EPS-C2 chassis is shipped with slots 2 and 3 covered and slot 1 open.

We recommend that you install a power supply first in slot 1, but this is not required. You can install power supplies into any of the slots in the EPS-C2 chassis. The installation sequence does not affect the performance of the power supply units, but empty slots must be covered at all times.
Warning

Warning

To prevent an electrical hazard, make sure that the AC power cord is not connected to the power supply before you install the power supply in the power supply bay.

After the EPS-C2 has been installed in a rack, do the following to install a 750 W AC power supply in an EPS-C2 chassis:

  1. If necessary, grasp the two tabs on either side of the slot cover and pull gently to remove it from the front of the EPS-C2 chassis.

  4. Push the power supply in until the latch snaps into place.

    Note

    Note

    If power supplies are not installed in all three slots, be sure to install a cover over each unoccupied slot. Unoccupied slots must always be covered to maintain proper system ventilation and EMI levels.
Repeat the procedure to install each additional power supply.
