Installing the EPS-600LS Power Supply

To install an EPS-600LS unit into an EPS-C, follow these steps:

  1. If necessary, remove a cover plate from a slot in the EPS-C.
  2. Slide the EPS-600LS into an empty slot in the EPS-C.
    Caution

    Caution

    Be sure that empty slots in the EPS-C chassis are always covered by a cover plate when not in use. The EPS-C is shipped with slots 2 and 3 covered and slot 1 open. Extreme Networks recommends that you populate slot 1 with an EPS-600LS unit first, but this is not required. You can install EPS-600LS units into any of the slots in the EPS-C. The installation sequence does not affect the performance of the power supply units, but empty slots must be covered at all times.

  5. Connect an appropriate AC power cord to the AC connector on the EPS-600LS unit (see Connecting the AC Power Cord).

    Use the cable clip on the EPS-600LS unit to hold the AC power cord in place (see Connecting the AC Power Cord).

    Caution

    Caution

    The EPS-600LS unit does not have a switch for turning the unit on and off. Disconnect power to the EPS-600LS unit by removing the plug from the electrical outlet. Make sure that this connection is easily accessible to you.
    Note

    Note

    An AC power cord is not provided with the EPS-600LS unit. See Power Cord Requirements for AC-Powered Switches and AC Power Supplies for information about selecting a power cord.
