Information About Site Requirement Guidelines

The environmental monitoring functionality in the v protects the system and components from potential damage from over-voltage and over-temperature conditions. To ensure normal operation and to avoid unnecessary maintenance, plan your site configuration and prepare your site before installation. After installation, make sure the site maintains an ambient temperature of 41°F to 104°F (5°C to 40°C) with short term temperatures ranging from 23°F to 131°F (-5°C to 55°C), and keep the area around the SCE 1000 chassis free from dust.

Planning a proper location for the SCE 1000 and the layout of your equipment rack or wiring closet is essential for successful system operation. Equipment placed too close together or inadequately ventilated can cause system over-heating. In addition, chassis panels made inaccessible by poor equipment placement can make system maintenance difficult.

Airflow

Site Requirements

Airflow

Figure 4-2 Airflow Through the SCE 1000

When you plan the location and layout of your equipment rack or wiring closet you need to consider how air flows though your system. The SCE 1000 draws cooling air in through the intake vents on the left side of the chassis, moves the air across the internal components, and out through the right side and rear panel of the chassis. Figure 4-2 illustrates the airflow through the SCE 1000.


Note Remember to leave a two inch (5 cm) clearance on both sides of the SCE 1000 and five inches (12.7 cm) at the rear for adequate airflow for the inlet and exhaust vents.

The DC-powered SCE 1000 should be installed in a Restricted Access Location only.

Installing the SCE 1000 Platform

The SCE 1000 operates as either a tabletop or a rack-mounted unit. A rack-mounting kit is included with the SCE 1000 when it is shipped from the factory. The kit provides the hardware needed to mount the SCE 1000 in either of two types of standard 19-inch equipment rack:

19-inch rack with only two posts in the front — Use the supporting brackets included in the kit

19-inch rack with four posts, two in the front and two in the back — Use the cross rail supports included in the kit

If you are not rack-mounting your SCE 1000, place it on a sturdy tabletop or workbench. A rubber feet kit is included for tabletop installations.

This section provides instructions for the physical installation of the SCE 1000 platform, including how to install the SCE 1000 in a rack, how to install the SCE 1000 on a tabletop or workbench, and how to properly ground the SCE 1000 platform. The section contains the following topics:

Installation Precautions

The router should already be in the area where you will install it, and your installation location should already be determined. If not, see Information About Site Requirement Guidelines and the Site Preparation and Safety Guide.

When installing the SCE 1000, please observe the following conditions:

Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) of clearance at its left and right sides for airflow clearance from the inlet and exhaust vents, and that no exhaust air from other equipment is drawn into the SCE 1000. For descriptions and illustrations regarding airflow, see Airflow.

Do not place the SCE 1000 on the floor during installation. Dust that accumulates on the floor is drawn into the interior of the SCE 1000 by the cooling fans. Excessive dust inside the SCE 1000 can cause over-temperature conditions and component failures.

Allow at least 5 inches (12.7 cm) of clearance at the front and rear of the SCE 1000 for installing and rudimentary maintenance for accessing network cables or equipment.

Ensure that the SCE 1000 will receive adequate ventilation. Do not install the SCE 1000 in an enclosed cabinet where ventilation is inadequate!

Provide an adequate chassis Ground (earth) connection for the SCE 1000 (see How to Attach a Chassis Ground Connection for instructions).

How to Install the SCE 1000 on a Workbench or Tabletop

You can install the SCE 1000 platform on any flat surface as long as the surface is large enough for the SCE 1000, and allows for adequate airflow/ventilation around the sides of the SCE 1000, as described in the Installation Precautions. When installing the SCE 1000 on a workbench or tabletop or in a rack, ensure that the surface is clean and in a safe location.

Figure 4-3 Installing the System on a Flat Surface


Step 1 Remove any debris and dust from the tabletop or workbench, as well as the surrounding area. Also make sure your path between the SCE 1000 platform and its new location is unobstructed.

Step 2 Place the SCE 1000 platform on the tabletop or workbench.

Step 3 View the bottom panel by lifting the SCE 1000, placing your hands around the SCE 1000 sides and lifting the SCE 1000 from underneath. To prevent injury, avoid sudden twists or moves.

There are four marked locations, indicating where to affix the rubber feet (see Figure 4-3).

Step 4 Attach the rubber feet by removing the adhesive strips and affix the rubber feet onto the marked locations (on the bottom panel).

Step 5 Replace the SCE 1000 platform firmly on the tabletop or workbench.

Remember to check for proper ventilation. Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) on each side for proper ventilation and 5 inches (12.7 cm) at the back for ventilation and power cord clearance.


What to Do Next

Proceed to section, How to Attach a Chassis Ground Connection to continue the installation.

Rack-Mounting a SCE 1000 Platform

You can mount the SCE 1000 platform to a 19" rack. There are two standard types of equipment racks, and the appropriate brackets for each are provided in the enclosed kit.

19" rack with front rack posts—The mounting kit includes two mounting brackets as shown in Figure 4-4.

Figure 4-4 Mounting Brackets for 2-post Rack

19" rack with front and back rack posts—In addition to the mounting brackets as shown in Figure 4-5, the mounting kit includes two cross rail supports that the unit slides onto.

Figure 4-5 Mounting Brackets for 4-post Rack

The SCE 1000 mounts to the two front rack posts with brackets that attach to the front of the SCE 1000 The inside width between the two posts or mounting strips (left and right) must be at least 17.3 inches (44 cm).


Note Remember to leave a two-inch (5 cm) clearance on both sides of the SCE 1000 and at the rear for adequate airflow for the inlet and exhaust vents.


Because the inlet and exhaust ports (vents) for cooling air are located at both sides of the chassis, respectively, multiple SCE 1000s can be stacked in a rack with no vertical clearance.

How to Attach the Brackets to the SCE 1000

Before installing the SCE 1000 in the rack, you must first install an appropriate rack-mount bracket on each side of the front of the SCE 1000, as illustrated in the following figure. See Tools and Parts Required for a listing of the parts and tools required for installing the rack-mount.


Step 1 Align the rack-mount bracket to the side of the SCE 1000. Choose the proper bracket for your installation (2-post rack or 4-post rack) as illustrated in Rack-Mounting a SCE 1000 Platform (Figure 4-6 or Figure 4-7).

Step 2 Insert and tighten three screws.

Figure 4-6 Attaching the Mounting Brackets (4-post)

Figure 4-7 Attaching the Mounting Brackets (2-post)

Step 3 Repeat steps 1 and 2 on the other side of the SCE 1000.

This completes the steps for attaching the rack-mount brackets to the SCE 1000.

If mounting the SCE 1000 in a rack with only two posts, skip to How to Mount the System to the Rack.

If mounting the SCE 1000 in a rack with four posts, proceed to the next step to attach the cross rail supports to the rack.


How to Attach the Cross Rail Supports to the Rack

When mounting in a rack with four posts (front and back) the two cross rail supports are mounted one on each side of the rack. The SCE 1000 then slides into these cross rails, which support the weight of the unit.


Note Cisco recommends that you allow at least 1 or 2 inches (2.54 or 5.08 cm) of vertical clearance between the SCE 1000 and any equipment directly above and below it.


SUMMARY STEPS

1. Assemble the two cross rail supports as illustrated below. Use three screws for each cross rail assembly.

2. Align the cross rail supports with the side of the rack, parallel to the floor.

3. Insert and tighten two screws to the front posts or mounting strips of the rack

4. Insert and tighten two screws to the Back posts of the rack.

5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 on the other side of the rack, keeping the brackets flush against the posts and parallel to the supporting bracket on first side of the rack.

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1 Assemble the two cross rail supports as shown in Figure 4-8. Use three screws for each cross rail assembly.

Make sure that they are oriented so that both cross rails will support the SCE 1000 when they are attached to the rack.

Figure 4-8 Assembling the Slider Brackets

Step 2 Align the cross rail supports with the side of the rack, parallel to the floor.

Step 3 Insert and tighten two screws to the front posts or mounting strips of the rack

Step 4 Insert and tighten two screws to the Back posts of the rack (Figure 4-9).

Figure 4-9 Attaching the Cross Rails to the Rack

Step 5 Repeat steps 2 through 4 on the other side of the rack, keeping the brackets flush against the posts and parallel to the supporting bracket on first side of the rack.


How to Mount the System to the Rack

When the appropriate mounting brackets are securely installed, the SCE 1000 can be installed into the rack.


Step 1 Make sure that your path to the rack is unobstructed. If the rack is on wheels, ensure that the brakes are engaged or that the rack is otherwise stabilized.

Step 2 Position the SCE 1000 so that the front end is closest to you, and lift it carefully to place it into the rack.

To prevent injury, avoid sudden twists or moves.

Step 3 Slide the SCE 1000 into the rack, pushing it back until the brackets (installed at the front of the SCE 1000) meet the mounting strips or posts on both sides of the rack (Figure 4-10).

A rack with both front and back posts will have the cross rail supports installed. Slide the SCE 1000 onto these cross rails and push it all the way back.

Figure 4-10 Sliding the SCE Platform into the Rack

Step 4 While keeping the brackets flush against the posts or mounting strips, align the holes in the brackets with the holes on the rack or mounting strip (Figure 4-11).

Figure 4-11 Securing the SCE Platform to the Rack

Step 5 For each bracket, insert and tighten two appropriate screws to the rack.


Note Since the brackets support the weight of the entire SCE 1000 chassis, be sure to use all four screws to fasten the two rack-mount brackets to the rack posts.



How to Attach a Chassis Ground Connection

Before you connect the power or turn on the power to the SCE 1000 platform, it is required that you provide an adequate chassis ground (protective earth) connection for the SCE 1000 chassis. A grounding kit is provided with each SCE 1000.

Use the grounding kit to properly ground the SCE 1000 chassis.


Note When installing the unit, the chassis ground connection must always be made first and disconnected last.



Step 1 From the enclosed grounding kit, remove the necessary materials—the grounding cable (green and yellow colored cable) and pairs of hex nuts and spring washers.

Step 2 On the rear panel of the SCE 1000, locate the chassis grounding connector (refer to the appropriate figure for an AC- or DC-powered SCE 1000 below).

Step 3 Attach the grounding cable (green and yellow colored cable), firmly fastening the (enclosed) hex nuts and spring washers with a #¼" hex wrench (refer to the appropriate figure (Figure 4-12 or Figure 4-13) for an AC- or DC-powered SCE 1000 below).

The other side of the grounding cable must be connected to the site equivalent of the AC earth.

Figure 4-12 Grounding the Unit (AC)

Figure 4-13 Grounding the Unit (DC)


Removing and Replacing a Power Supply Unit

The procedures for removing and replacing the AC-input or DC-input power supply are explained in the following sections:

Do not remove or install modules without using appropriate anti-static guard measures. The SCE 1000 includes an anti-static wrist strap in the accessory kit. Attach the copper tape strap to an unpainted metal surface on the chassis. You may leave the strap connected to the chassis when your have finished.

Never install an AC power module and a DC power module in the same chassis.

How to Remove the Power Supply Unit

Information About the Power Supply

The SCE 1000 is available in two power options:

Dual line feed AC power — SCE 1000 is shipped with two appropriate AC power supply cords.

Dual line feed DC power — requires appropriate cables (hex or loop connectors) (see How to Reconnect DC-Input Power Supply Unit).

The dual power supply units supply hot-swappable, redundant power. Redundant power is useful as a failover; if a situation occurs where one power supply is down (for instance, a power supply fails or a new power supply needs to be installed), the SCE 1000 can continue to run properly using the other power supply.

Each power supply has fans that cool the power supply unit. These fans also help to cool the internal components of the SCE 1000, as they direct the air flow to the outside through vents in the rear of the power supply unit.

The faceplates of both power supplies have a handle, an on/off switch, and one captive installation screw. An AC-input power receptacle is available on the AC-input power supply and a DC-input terminal block is available on the DC-input power supply.

Note that the power supply units are asymmetrical, with a screw in only one corner of the unit. Therefore, both power supply units can be fastened only if both units are inserted in the proper orientation. This also prevents the accidental installation of one DC unit and one AC unit. (Refer to Figure 4-14 or Figure 4-15).

Figure 4-14 AC Power Supply Unit

The handle of the DC unit is at the top of the unit.

Figure 4-15 DC Power Supply Unit

LEDs

The following LEDs are used to monitor the functioning of the power supply units:

On the power supply unit (both AC-input and DC-input):

IN LED (green)

On the Front Panel:

Power LED: There are two Power LEDs on the front panel (Power A and Power B), one LED corresponding to each power supply unit

On both the AC-input and DC-input power supplies, the IN LED is used to monitor the voltages received by the platform from the power source. If the input voltages are within normal operating ranges, the green IN LED is illuminated. If the input voltages are above or below normal ranges, the IN LED is not illuminated.

On both the AC-input and DC-input power supplies, the OK LED is used to monitor the power supply DC output voltages used to power the platform. The normal operating ranges for the 12 VDC output voltage is between 11.9V and 12.1V. If the output voltages are within normal operating ranges, the green OK LED is illuminated. If the 12 VDC output voltages are above (more than 12.1V) or below (less than 11.9V) normal ranges, the OK LED is not illuminated.

The Power A and Power B LEDs on the front panel indicate whether the corresponding power supply unit is functioning normally.

Refer to the Table 4-4, Table 4-5, and Table 4-6 for LED status information.

Figure 4-19 Inserting the Fan Module

When inserting a fan module into the SCE 1000 platform, do not use unnecessary force; slamming the fan module into the chassis can damage the connectors on the rear of the module.

Step 4 Seat the fan module in the SCE 1000 platform by tightening the two captive installation screws with a 1/4-inch flat-blade screwdriver.


Note The fan module is not fully seated until you tighten the installation screws on the faceplate.



How to Replace the Battery

The SCE 1000 has a lithium battery on its main circuit board. When the battery loses its charge, call Cisco Technical Support to replace the battery.

Do not attempt to replace this battery yourself.

There is danger of explosion if the lithium battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer's instructions.
