The Cisco uBR7246 and Cisco uBR7246VXR routers are equipped with the 550W output/AC-input power supplies and the maximum AC-input power with single or dual power supply configuration is 800W.


Note To ensure adequate airflow across the Cisco uBR7225VXR, Cisco uBR7246VXR, and Cisco uBR7246 universal broadband routers' power supplies, a power supply or a power supply filler plate (with its attached air dam) must be installed in each power supply bay.


Do not mix AC-input and DC-input power supplies in the same Cisco uBR7246VXR or Cisco uBR7246 chassis.

Cisco uBR7225VXR

Each power supply contains a main power switch, the OK LED, and the AC-input power receptacle. The grounding lug at the rear-bottom portion of the Cisco uBR7225VXR chassis provides a ground connection for electrostatic discharge (ESD) equipment.

The Cisco uBR7225VXR supports an optional, second power supply for load sharing and power redundancy. If you purchased a Cisco uBR7225VXR and you want to install a second power supply, you must order the second power supply separately.


Note The Cisco uBR7225VXR router supports the 300W and the 540W AC-input power supplies. Ensure that you do not use a combination of these power supplies.


A handle on the AC-input power supply unit provides a grip point for removing and replacing the power supply. (Figure 1 shows the faceplate of the Cisco uBR7225VXR AC-input power supply.)

A single captive installation screw secures the power supply to the chassis and seats the power supply in the router midplane. The AC-input power supply has a receptacle for an AC-input power cable. A modular power cable connects the AC-input power supply to the site AC power source.


Note For the Cisco uBR7225VXR, the 300W AC-input power supply has an electrical current rating of 4A and the 540W AC-input power supply has an electrical current rating of 6.5A.


The Cisco uBR7225VXR power supply device does not have a cable retention clip.

Figure 1 Cisco uBR7225VXR AC-Input Power Supply

The Cisco uBR7225VXR power supply shuts itself down when the input AC voltage, the output DC voltage, or the internal temperature of the chassis exceeds allowable tolerances. When this occurs, one or both of the power supply front panel LEDs will turn red. The Cisco uBR7225VXR power supply must then be reset by manually switching the power switch off and then back on to allow it to recover.

Cisco uBR7246 and Cisco uBR7246VXR

The power supply contains a main power switch, OK LED, and either an AC-input power receptacle, or two hardwired DC-input power leads and three M5 grounding connectors (depending on the type of installed power supply). Adjacent to the lower power supply bay, two M5 chassis grounding receptacles provide a chassis ground connection for electrostatic discharge (ESD) equipment or a two-hole grounding lug for the AC-input power supplies.

The Cisco uBR7246VXR and Cisco uBR7246 support an optional, second power supply for load sharing and power redundancy. If you purchased a Cisco uBR7246VXR or Cisco uBR7246 and you want to install a second power supply, you must order the second power supply separately.

A handle on the AC-input power supply unit provides a grip point for removing and replacing the power supply. (Figure 2 shows the faceplate of the Cisco uBR7246VXR and Cisco uBR7246 AC-input power supply.)

Two captive installation screws secure the power supply to the chassis and seat the power supply in the router midplane. A Power OK LED indicates that the power supply is delivering +5 VDC to the router midplane.

The AC-input power supply has a receptacle for an AC-input power cable. A modular power cable connects the AC-input power supply to the site AC power source. A cable-retention clip secures the power cable to the AC-input power supply.


Note Each AC-input power supply has an electrical current rating of 7A.


Figure 2 Cisco uBR7246 and Cisco uBR7246VXR AC-Input Power Supply


Caution When the input power to Cisco uBR7246 universal broadband router power supply is disconnected or lost, the power supply enters a reset cycle for 10 seconds. Wait at least 10 seconds or move the power switch from one position to the other to restart the power supply. For example, if the power supply was on when the power was disconnected or lost, move the power switch to the off position then back to the on position. If you do not wait the full 10 seconds or move the power switch from one position to the other, the power supply does not restart.

Safety Guidelines

Following are safety guidelines that you should follow when working with any equipment that connects to electrical power or telephone wiring.

Safety Warnings

Safety warnings appear throughout this publication in procedures that, if performed incorrectly, might harm you. A warning symbol precedes each warning statement.

Warning Definition


Warning IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

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. Use the statement number provided at the end of each warning to locate its translation in the translated safety warnings that accompanied this device. Statement 1071

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

Electrical Equipment Guidelines

Follow these basic guidelines when working with any electrical equipment:

Before beginning any procedures requiring access to the chassis interior, locate the emergency power-off switch for the room in which you are working.

Disconnect all power and external cables before moving a chassis.

Do not work alone if 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.

Telephone Wiring Guidelines

Use the following guidelines when working with any equipment that is connected to telephone wiring or to other network cabling:

Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.

Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically designed for wet locations.

Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone line has been disconnected at the network interface.

Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damages equipment and impairs electrical circuitry. ESD occurs when printed circuit boards are improperly handled and results in complete or intermittent failures.

The I/O controller, network processing engine, cable modem cards, and port adapters consist of a printed circuit board that is fixed in a metal carrier. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding, connectors, and handle are integral components of the carrier. Handle the I/O controller, network processing engine, cable modem cards, and port adapters by their carrier edges and handle only; never touch the printed circuit board components or connector pins.

Although the metal carrier helps to protect the printed circuit boards from ESD, wear a preventive antistatic strap whenever handling the network processing engine, I/O controller, cable modem cards, or port adapters. Ensure that the strap makes good skin contact, and connect the strap's clip to an unpainted chassis surface to safely channel unwanted ESD voltages to ground. If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching the unpainted metal part of the chassis.


Caution Make sure to tighten the captive installation screws on the network processing engine, cable modem cards, and I/O controller (use a number 2 Phillips screwdriver). These screws prevent accidental removal, provide proper grounding for the router, and help to ensure that the network processing engine, cable modem cards, and I/O controller are properly seated in the router midplane.

Following are guidelines for preventing ESD damage:

Always use an ESD wrist strap or ankle strap when installing or replacing the I/O controller, network processing engine, or port adapters. Ensure that the ESD strap makes contact with your skin.

Handle the I/O controller, network processing engine, or port adapters by their metal carrier edges and handles only; avoid touching the printed circuit board components or any connector pins.

When removing the I/O controller, network processing engine, or port adapters, place them on an antistatic surface with the printed circuit board components facing upward, or in a static shielding bag. If you are returning an I/O controller, network processing engine, or port adapter to the factory, immediately place it in a static shielding bag.


Caution Periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be within the range of 1 and 10 megohms (Mohms).

Ensuring Easy Access to the Router

If your Cisco uBR7200 series router is installed in a standard 19-inch-wide, four-post equipment rack or telco-type equipment rack, cables from other equipment in the rack might obstruct access to the rear of the router. Also, rack power strips or other permanent fixtures might obstruct access to the router. Review the following guidelines to ensure easy access to the rear of the router when it is installed in a rack. If the router is not installed in a rack, or if you already have clear access to the rear of the router, proceed to the "Removing and Replacing an AC-Input Power Supply" section.

Use the following guidelines to ensure easy access to the rear of the router when it is installed in a rack:

Ensure that you have at least three to four feet of working space at the rear of the router.

If cables from other equipment in the rack fall in front of the rear end of the router, carefully gather the cables (using care not to strain them) and use cable ties to anchor them away from the rear of the router.

If access to the rear of the router is partially blocked by a power strip or some other permanent rack fixture, detach the router from the rack and carefully slide it forward until there is enough clearance to remove the power supply, the fan tray, the network processing engine, and the subchassis from the router. Detailed steps for detaching the router from the rack are contained in the following section, "Removing and Replacing an AC-Input Power Supply."


Caution Make sure that at least one other person is available to support the front of the router as you slide it out from the rack and, if necessary, to continue to support it while you remove and insert the power supply, network processing engine, or subchassis.

Removing and Replacing an AC-Input Power Supply

The following sections explain how to remove and replace an AC-input power supply in a Cisco uBR7200 series router for a single power supply configuration and a dual power supply configuration.


Caution When the input power to a Cisco uBR7200 series power supply is disconnected or lost, the power supply will enter a reset cycle for 90 seconds. Wait at least 90 seconds or move the power switch from one position to the other to restart the power supply. For example, if the power supply was ON when the power was disconnected or lost, move the power switch to the OFF position then back to the ON position. If you do not wait the full 90 seconds or move the power switch from one position to the other, the power supply will not restart. This caution note does not apply to the Cisco uBR7225VXR power supply.

Single Power Supply Configuration

Removing and replacing the AC-input power supply in a single power supply configuration involves the following tasks:

Powering Down the Router

Disconnecting AC-Input Power

Removing the AC-Input Power Supply

Installing the AC-Input Power Supply

Reconnecting AC-Input Power

Powering Up the Router

These tasks are described in detail in the following subsections.

Powering Down the Router


Note Before powering down the router, use the copy running-config startup-config command to save the router's running configuration to nonvolatile memory.



Step 1 Facing the rear of the router, place the power switch (on the power supply) in the OFF (O) position. Repeat this action if a second power supply is installed in the router.

Step 2 Observe the following items:

The green OK LED on the power supply goes off.

The fans stop operating.

The LEDs on the I/O controller go off.

The LEDs on the port adapters go off.

The LEDs on the cable modem cards go off.

This completes the procedure for powering down the router. Proceed to the following section "Disconnecting AC-Input Power."

Disconnecting AC-Input Power


Warning Do not touch the power supply when the power cord is connected. For systems with a power switch, line voltages are present within the power supply even when the power switch is off and the power cord is connected. For systems without a power switch, line voltages are present within the power supply when the power cord is connected.

Warning Before working on equipment that is connected to power lines, remove jewelry (including rings, necklaces, and watches). Metal objects will heat up when connected to power and ground and can cause serious burns or weld the metal object to the terminals.

Step 1 Unplug the input power cable from the power source.

Step 2 Push the cable-retention clip that secures the input power cable to the router power supply to the left.

Step 3 Unplug the other end of the input power cable from the power supply. (See Figure 3.)

Step 4 From the rear of the rack, carefully push the front of the router out of the rack until there is enough clearance to remove the power supply from the router.

Step 5 Grasp the power supply handle and pull the AC-input power supply from the router.


Caution To maintain agency compliance requirements and meet EMI emissions standards for the Cisco uBR7246VXR and Cisco uBR7246 with a single power supply, the power supply filler plate and its attached air dam must remain in the power supply adjacent to the installed power supply. Do not remove this filler plate or the attached air dam from the router unless you intend to install a redundant power supply.

This completes the procedure for removing the AC-input power supply from a Cisco uBR7200 series router. Proceed to the following section, "Installing the AC-Input Power Supply."

Installing the AC-Input Power Supply


Step 1 Make sure the power switch on the power supply is in the OFF (O) position.


Note If you are adding a second power supply to a Cisco uBR7246VXR or Cisco uBR7246 that previously only had one power supply installed, make sure the power supply filler plate and its attached air dam have been removed from the power supply bay.


Step 2 Grasp the power supply handle with one hand and place your other hand underneath the power supply for support. (See Figure 5.)

Figure 5 Holding the AC-Input Power Supply

Step 3 Align the power supply to the power supply bay.

Step 4 Slide the power supply completely in to the power supply bay until its faceplate is flush with the router rear panel.


Caution When inserting a power supply into the router, do not use unnecessary force; slamming the power supply into the bay can damage the connectors on the rear of the power supply and on the midplane.

Step 5 Seat the power supply in the router by tightening the captive installation screws with a number 2 Phillips screwdriver.


Note The power supply is not fully seated in the router midplane until you tighten the captive installation screws. Use the flat head or Phillips screw driver to fasten or loosen the single screw on the uBR7225VXR power supply.


Step 6 If there is no second power supply, replace the filler plate and its attached air dam on the empty power supply bay. Using a number 2 Phillips screwdriver, tighten the filler plate captive installation screws.

Step 7 If you pushed the router from the rack, slowly guide the router back into the rack.

Step 8 Use a 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver to tighten the screws that secure the router to the front mounting strips of the rack.


Caution To maintain agency compliance requirements and meet EMI emissions standards for the Cisco uBR7246VXR and Cisco uBR7246 with a single power supply, the power supply filler plate and its attached air dam must remain in the power supply adjacent to the installed power supply. Do not remove this filler plate or the attached air dam from the router unless you intend to install a redundant power supply.

This completes the procedures for installing the AC-input power supply in the router. Proceed to the following section, "Reconnecting AC-Input Power."

Reconnecting AC-Input Power


Warning Never defeat the ground conductor or operate the equipment in the absence of a suitably installed ground conductor. Contact the appropriate electrical inspection authority or an electrician if you are uncertain that suitable grounding is available.

Step 1 At the rear of the router, check that the power switch on the power supply is in the OFF (O) position.

Step 2 Push the cable-retention clip to the left, away from the AC receptacle, and plug in the power cable.

Step 3 Secure the cable in the power supply AC receptacle by pushing the cable-retention clip to the right until it snaps around the connector. The cable-retention clip provides strain relief for the AC power cable. (See Figure 6.)
