Installing the EPS-C Chassis

Caution

Caution

Do not use the rack-mount brackets to suspend the EPS-C from under a table or desk, or to attach the EPS-C unit to a wall.
The EPS-C is intended for use only with a Summit X450e-48p or X250e-48p switch. You can install the EPS-C above or below the switch.

    3. Attach the mounting bracket for the other side of the EPS-C.
  4. Slide the EPS-C into the rack and secure it using appropriate rack-mount screws.
  5. Connect the keyed end of the redundant power cord to the EPS-C (see Installing the Redundant Power Cord). Verify that the side of the connector marked TOP is facing up.

    The key is a plastic tab on the cable connector housing that fits into the EPS-C to ensure correct alignment of the connector.

  6. Connect the other end of the redundant power cord to the Summit X450e-48p or X250e-48p switch. Be sure that the side of the connector marked TOP is facing up (see Installing the Redundant Power Cord).
