This document includes procedures for installing and removing the fan assembly module that is shipped with the Cisco uBR10012 universal broadband router. This document also includes technical specifications and troubleshooting information.
The Cisco uBR10012 chassis uses a fan assembly module containing fans to supply cooling air to the chassis. The fan assembly connects to the chassis through a blind mate connector that plugs into the cable assembly and then into the chassis backplane. The fan assembly modules are identified by their product part numbers. The fan assembly modules supported on the Cisco uBR10012 chassis are:
Note The output of the show inventory command does not display the serial numbers for the fan assembly modules (UBR10-FAN-ASSY and UBR10012-FAN-PLUS). Visually inspect the serial number labels printed on the fan assembly modules to locate the serial number.
This fan assembly module as shown in Figure 1 has four internal fans that draw cooling air into the front of the chassis and directs it across the internal components. The air is exhausted through the openings at the rear of the chassis. The fan assembly module works at two speeds:
Table 1 lists the LEDs on the fan assembly module.
This fan assembly as shown in Figure 2 has nine internal fans that draw cooling air into the front of the chassis and directs it across the internal components. This fan assembly module provides:
- Increased cooling capability
- Higher redundancy in case of a failure
- Repositioned thermal sensor that detects the ambient temperature of the cable plant or facility and adjusts the variable fan speeds to maintain the temperature
This fan assembly module works at four variable speed levels (0, 1, 2, and 3). The operating speed of the fan is determined by the temperature of the facility. A thermistor, mounted on the fan assembly module, is placed in front of the vent holes on the front panel. It measures the ambient air temperature on the outside of the fan module. The threshold temperatures and speed levels are set internally and the fan assembly controller monitors the thermistor and controls the speed of the fan. When powered on, the fans operate at a speed according to the ambient average air temperature of the facility at the appropriate speed level.
Three LEDs indicate the status of the fan assembly. Table 1 lists the LEDs on the front panel of the fan assembly module. In addition, there is a PRODUCT ID LED/switch on the front panel of the fan assembly module (see Figure 3 ).
Table 2 lists the default activation status of the PRODUCT ID LED/switch when it is shipped.
Fan module and Cisco uBR10012 chassis running supported Cisco IOS Release1
1.For information on Cisco IOS Releases that support the PRODUCT ID LED/switch feature, see the Cisco uBR10012 Router Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SCE.
If the PRODUCT ID LED/switch is illuminated (green), the Cisco IOS software identifies the fan assembly module as UBR10012-FAN-PLUS only if you are running a supporting Cisco IOS release on the chassis. If the PRODUCT ID LED/switch is illuminated (green) but a non-supporting release is running on the chassis, the software reports the default UBR10-FAN-ASSY product part number and a FAN-MISSING alarm may be randomly raised. To clear the alarm, see “Troubleshooting the Fan Assembly” section .
Table 3 summarizes the specifications of both the fan assembly modules.

Warning This warning symbol means danger. You are in a situation that could cause bodily injury. Before you work on any equipment, be aware of the hazards involved with electrical circuitry and be familiar with standard practices for preventing accidents. To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the translated safety warnings that accompanied this device. Statement 1071
- Before beginning any procedures requiring access to the chassis interior, locate the emergency power-off switch for the room where you are working.
- Disconnect all power and external cables before moving a chassis.
- Do not work alone when potentially hazardous conditions exist.
- Never assume that power has been disconnected from a circuit; always check.
- Do not perform any action that creates a potential hazard to people or makes the equipment unsafe.
- Carefully examine your work area for possible hazards such as moist floors, ungrounded power extension cables, and missing safety grounds.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage, which occurs when electronic cards or components are improperly handled, can result in complete or intermittent failures. The AC-input power shelf and its AC power modules contain a printed circuit card that is fixed in a metal carrier. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding and connectors are integral components of the carrier. Although the metal carrier helps to protect the cards from ESD, use an antistatic strap each time you handle the modules.
- Always use an ESD-preventive wrist or ankle strap and ensure that it makes good skin contact. Before removing a card from the chassis, connect the equipment end of the strap to a bare metal, unpainted surface on the chassis, or rack-mount.
- Handle components by the carrier edges only; avoid touching the card components or any connector pins.
- When removing a module, place it on an antistatic surface or in a static-shielding bag. If the module is to be returned to the factory, immediately place it in a static-shielding bag.
- Avoid contact between the modules and clothing. The wrist strap protects the card from ESD voltages on the body only; ESD voltages on clothing can still cause damage.
Table 4 lists the specifications for the UBR10-FAN-ASSY= fan assembly module.
Table 5 lists the specifications for the UBR10012-FAN-PLUS= fan assembly module.
Step 4 Retain the packaging and the carton to return the module to the factory if it is found defective. For more information, see the “Obtaining Documentation and Submitting a Service Request” section.
After performing this step, install the Fan assembly modules, see “Install the Fan Assembly Module” section.
- If you are installing the fan module (UBR10012-FAN-PLUS=, Spare) in an existing Cisco uBR10012 router chassis, ensure that the PRODUCT ID LED/switch activation status is in accordance with the Cisco IOS Release running on the chassis (see Table 2 for details).
- The UBR10012-FAN-PLUS= fan assembly module is pre-installed with EMI gaskets (see Figure 4). If you are installing the fan module (UBR10012-FAN-PLUS=, Spare) in an existing Cisco uBR10012 router chassis, ensure that the EMI gaskets on the Cisco uBR10012 router chassis (if present) are removed before mounting the fan assembly module.
Caution Do not remove the required EMI gaskets on the UBR10012-FAN-PLUS= fan assembly module (see Figure 4).
The EMI gaskets present on the Cisco uBR10012 router chassis are used with the UBR10-FAN-ASSY= fan assembly module (see Figure 5). For information about installing EMI gaskets, see Installing EMI Gaskets and RF Absorber Material on the Cisco uBR10012 Universal Broadband Router .
Step 6 Verify that the FAN OK LED is illuminated (green). If the FAN OK LED is not illuminated or if the fan failure (SINGLE FAN FAIL or MULTI FAN FAIL) LEDs are illuminated (yellow), try reseating the fan assembly module, see “Troubleshooting the Fan Assembly” section.
Note If you are using the fan module (UBR10012-FAN-PLUS=), and running a Cisco IOS Release that does not support the PRODUCT ID LED feature, ensure that the PRODUCT ID LED/switch is not illuminated. For information on Cisco IOS Releases that support the PRODUCT ID LED/switch feature, see Cisco uBR10012 Router Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SCE. If you are using a supported Cisco IOS release, the software may not identify the fan assembly as UBR10012-FAN-PLUS. If this occurs, ensure that the PRODUCT ID LED/switch is illuminated and then either reload the software, or physically remove the fan assembly module for at least 1 minute and then reinsert it. For more information, see “Troubleshooting the Fan Assembly” section.
Caution Do not run the Cisco uBR10012 chassis without a working fan assembly module for more than three minutes. To prevent the possibility of the system overheating, be sure that the replacement fan assembly module is out of its box and packaging, so it is ready to install as soon as the defective module is removed.
Caution The total service window for removal and replacement of the fan assembly module is three minutes before possible system shutdown. Ensure that you complete the replacement procedure within this time limit.
Note The fan assembly module does not need to be replaced when it is operating normally. If a failure (SINGLE FAN FAIL or MULTI FAN FAIL) LED illuminates (yellow), use the following procedure to remove and reinsert the fan assembly module to test the connection. If the failure (SINGLE FAN FAIL or MULTI FAN FAIL) LED still illuminates (yellow) after removing and reinserting the module, use the following procedure to replace the fan assembly module.
- Ensure that the PRODUCT ID LED/switch on the UBR10012-FAN-PLUS= fan assembly module is illuminated or not illuminated before removing and replacing the fan assembly module. Table 2 provides information on the PRODUCT ID LED/switch activation status and compatibility with the Cisco IOS Release.
Step 1 Remove the front cover by lifting it up slightly, and then pulling it towards you (see Figure 6).
Step 2 Verify the status of the PRODUCT ID LED/switch on the UBR10012-FAN-PLUS= fan assembly module before removing the module from the chassis (see Table 2 ).
Step 3 Loosen the captive screws on each side of the fan assembly module and pull the module out of the chassis (see Figure 7).
Caution The fan assembly module weighs approximately 30 pounds. Use one hand to pull the fan assembly module using its handle and position the other hand underneath the module to support it, so that it does not suddenly swing down when it clears the chassis.
After performing this task, install the fan assembly module, see “Install the Fan Assembly Module” section.
The fan assembly cable connects the fan assembly to the backplane. The cable is located inside the chassis, underneath the fan assembly. Normally, the cable is not removed when a fan assembly module is removed from the chassis (see Figure 8).
Step 2 Remove the fan assembly (see“Removing the Fan Assembly Module” section).
Step 4 Disconnect the cable from the rear bracket (see Figure 9).
Note The fan assembly cable has two “U” shaped bends that allow the cable to curve back into the brackets and fit snugly on the bottom of the fan module enclosure. (See Figure 9.)
After performing this task, replace the fan assembly cable, see “Replacing the Fan Assembly Cable” section.
Replacing a fan cable requires removing the cooling facilities of the chassis. It is not necessary to remove power from the chassis for this procedure. However, because you are shutting down the fans that cool the chassis and boards, it is important to have the new cable ready for immediate installation.
Step 2 Bend the cable in a “U” shape at both ends, to facilitate getting the cable into the rear bracket. (See Figure 9.)
If the problem persists, see the “Obtaining Documentation and Submitting a Service Request” section .
Remove the fan assembly module and reinsert it. If this does not help, examine the LED that is illuminated, see “Fan Assembly LEDs and Their Function” section. Else see, “Obtaining Documentation and Submitting a Service Request” section.
Although an over-temperature condition is unlikely at initial startup, ensure that heated exhaust air from other equipment is not entering the inlet vent of the router and that there is sufficient clearance around the sides of the chassis to allow cooling air to flow.
- Is the PRODUCT ID LED/switch on fan assembly module illuminated (green) and a FAN-MISSING alarm is randomly being triggered?
If you are running a Cisco IOS Release that does not support the PRODUCT ID LED/switch feature, then ensure that the PRODUCT ID LED/switch is not pressed and is not illuminated. Upgrade to a supported Cisco IOS Release on the chassis.
If you are running a Cisco IOS Release that supports this feature, but the FAN-MISSING alarm is still being triggered, then follow the steps below to clear the alarm so that the software recognizes the fan module:
If none of the above solves the problem, see the “Obtaining Documentation and Submitting a Service Request” section .
- If you experience trouble with the startup, and the issue is not resolved with these procedures, manually power off the router and contact a service representative for assistance and further instructions, see the “Obtaining Documentation and Submitting a Service Request” section .
