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.
Caution

Caution

Make sure the AC power supply circuit is not overloaded. Use proper overcurrent protection, such as a circuit breaker, to prevent overcurrent conditions.

An AC power cord is not included with the Summit AC power supply. You can purchase AC power cords for use in the US and Canada from Extreme Networks or from your local supplier. The cord must meet the requirements listed in Power Cord Requirements for AC-Powered Switches and AC Power Supplies.

To install a 715 W or 1100 W AC power supply in a switch, follow these steps:

  1. If necessary, remove a blank panel from the back of the switch.
  2. Verify that the power supply is right side up.
  3. Verify that the power supply's airflow direction (front-to-back or back-to-front) is compatible with the switch.
  4. Carefully slide the power supply all the way into the power supply bay, as shown in Installing a Summit AC Power Supply.
