Handling Port Adapters

Each port adapter circuit board is mounted to a metal carrier and is sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage.


Note When a slot is not in use, a blank port adapter must fill the empty slot to allow the router or switch to conform to electromagnetic interference (EMI) emissions requirements and to allow proper airflow across the port adapters. If you plan to install a new port adapter in a slot that is not in use, you must first remove the blank port adapter.



Caution When powering off the router, wait a minimum of 30 seconds before powering it on again.


Caution Always handle the port adapter by the carrier edges and handle; never touch the port adapter components or connector pins. (See Figure 3-1.)

Figure 3-1 Handling a Port Adapter

Online Insertion and Removal

Several platforms support online insertion and removal (OIR) of port adapters; therefore, you do not have to power down routers when removing and replacing a PA-MC-STM-1 in the Cisco 7200 VXR routers, Cisco 7201 router, Cisco 7301 router, or Cisco 7401ASR router.

Although the FlexWAN module, Cisco 7304 PCI port adapter carrier card, and VIP support OIR, individual port adapters do not. To remove or replace a PA-MC-STM-1 on a FlexWAN module, Cisco 7304 PCI port adapter carrier card, or VIP you must first remove the FlexWAN module, Cisco 7304 PCI port adapter carrier card, or VIP from the router and then install or replace port adapters as required. If you want to replace a blank port adapter on the FlexWAN module, Cisco 7304 PCI port adapter carrier card, or VIP with the PA-MC-STM-1, you must first remove the FlexWAN module, Cisco 7304 PCI port adapter carrier card, or VIP from the router and then remove and replace the blank port adapter.


Note As you disengage the port adapter from the router or switch, online insertion and removal (OIR) administratively shuts down all active interfaces in the port adapter.


OIR allows you to install and replace port adapters while the system is operating; you do not need to notify the software or reset the system power, although you should not run traffic through the port adapter you are removing while it is being removed. OIR is a method that is seamless to end users on the network, maintains all routing information, and ensures session preservation.


Note OIR is not supported on the Port Adapter Jacket Card. OIR is supported on the port adapter. You must have the chassis powered off to install or remove the Port Adapter Jacket Card.



Caution To prevent system problems, do not remove port adapters from the FlexWAN module, Cisco 7304 PCI port adapter carrier card, or VIP, and do not attempt to install other port adapters on the FlexWAN module, Cisco 7304 PCI port adapter carrier card, or VIP when the system is operating. To install or replace port adapters, first remove the FlexWAN module, Cisco 7304 PCI port adapter carrier card, or VIP from the router.


Note Before you begin installation, read "Preparing for Installation," for a list of parts and tools required for installation.


Warnings and Cautions

Observe the following warnings and cautions when installing or removing modules:

Do not slide a port adapter all the way into the slot until you have connected all required cables. Trying to do so disrupts normal operation of the router or switch.

If a port adapter lever or other retaining mechanism does not move to the locked position, the port adapter is not completely seated in the midplane. Carefully pull the port adapter halfway out of the slot, reinsert it, and move the port adapter lever or other mechanism to the locked position.

To prevent jamming the carrier between the upper and the lower edges of the port adapter slot, and to ensure that the edge connector at the rear of the port adapter mates with the connection at the rear of the port adapter slot, make certain that the carrier is positioned correctly, as shown in the cutaway illustrations in the "Port Adapter Removal and Installation" section.

Blank Faceplates and Cover Panels Warning

Warning


Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three important functions: they prevent exposure to hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they contain electromagnetic interference (EMI) that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not operate the system unless all cards, faceplates, front covers, and rear covers are in place. Statement 1029

Waarschuwing

Lege vlakplaten en afdekpanelen vervullen drie belangrijke functies: ze voorkomen blootstelling aan gevaarlijke voltages en stroom binnenin het frame, ze bevatten elektromagnetische storing (EMI) hetgeen andere apparaten kan verstoren en ze leiden de stroom van koellucht door het frame. Het systeem niet bedienen tenzij alle kaarten, vlakplaten en afdekkingen aan de voor- en achterkant zich op hun plaats bevinden.

Varoitus

Tyhjillä tasolaikoilla ja suojapaneeleilla on kolme tärkeää käyttötarkoitusta: Ne suojaavat asennuspohjan sisäisille vaarallisille jännitteille ja sähkövirralle altistumiselta; ne pitävät sisällään elektromagneettisen häiriön (EMI), joka voi häiritä muita laitteita; ja ne suuntaavat tuuletusilman asennuspohjan läpi. Järjestelmää ei saa käyttää, elleivät kaikki tasolaikat, etukannet ja takakannet ole kunnolla paikoillaan.

Attention

Ne jamais faire fonctionner le système sans que l'intégralité des cartes, des plaques métalliques et des panneaux avant et arrière ne soient fixés à leur emplacement. Ceux-ci remplissent trois fonctions essentielles : ils évitent tout risque de contact avec des tensions et des courants dangereux à l'intérieur du châssis, ils évitent toute diffusion d'interférences électromagnétiques qui pourraient perturber le fonctionnement des autres équipements, et ils canalisent le flux d'air de refroidissement dans le châssis.

Warnung

Blanke Faceplates und Abdeckungen haben drei wichtigen Funktionen: (1) Sie schützen vor gefährlichen Spannungen und Strom innerhalb des Chassis; (2) sie halten elektromagnetische Interferenzen (EMI) zurück, die andere Geräte stören könnten; (3) sie lenken den kühlenden Luftstrom durch das Chassis. Das System darf nur betrieben werden, wenn alle Karten, Faceplates, Voder- und Rückabdeckungen an Ort und Stelle sind.

Avvertenza

Le piattaforme bianche e i panelli di protezione hanno tre funzioni importanti: Evitano l'esposizione a voltaggi e correnti elettriche pericolose nello chassis, trattengono le interferenze elettromagnetiche (EMI) che potrebbero scombussolare altri apparati e dirigono il flusso di aria per il raffreddamento attraverso lo chassis. Non mettete in funzione il sistema se le schede, le piattaforme, i panelli frontali e posteriori non sono in posizione.

Advarsel

Blanke ytterplater og deksler sørger for tre viktige funksjoner: de forhindrer utsettelse for farlig spenning og strøm inni kabinettet; de inneholder elektromagnetisk forstyrrelse (EMI) som kan avbryte annet utstyr, og de dirigerer luftavkjølingsstrømmen gjennom kabinettet. Betjen ikke systemet med mindre alle kort, ytterplater, frontdeksler og bakdeksler sitter på plass.

Aviso

As faces furadas e os painéis de protecção desempenham três importantes funções: previnem contra uma exposição perigosa a voltagens e correntes existentes no interior do chassis; previnem contra interferência electromagnética (EMI) que poderá danificar outro equipamento; e canalizam o fluxo do ar de refrigeração através do chassis. Não deverá operar o sistema sem que todas as placas, faces, protecções anteriores e posteriores estejam nos seus lugares.

¡Advertencia!

Las placas frontales y los paneles de relleno cumplen tres funciones importantes: evitan la exposición a niveles peligrosos de voltaje y corriente dentro del chasis; reducen la interferencia electromagnética (EMI) que podría perturbar la operación de otros equipos y dirigen el flujo de aire de enfriamiento a través del chasis. No haga funcionar el sistema a menos que todas las tarjetas, placas frontales, cubiertas frontales y cubiertas traseras estén en su lugar.

Varning!

Tomma framplattor och skyddspaneler har tre viktiga funktioner: de förhindrar att personer utsätts för farlig spänning och ström som finns inuti chassit; de innehåller elektromagnetisk interferens (EMI) som kan störa annan utrustning; och de styr riktningen på kylluftsflödet genom chassit. Använd inte systemet om inte alla kort, framplattor, fram- och bakskydd är på plats.

Aviso

Plaquetas vazias e painéis de proteção têm três funções importantes: impedem a exposição a tensões e correntes elétricas perigosas dentro do chassi; apresentam interferência eletromagnética (EMI) que pode danificar outros equipamentos: direcionam o fluxo do ar refrigerado pelo chassi. Não opere o sistema a menos que todas as placas, plaquetas, tampas frontais e tampas traseiras estejam em seu devido lugar.

Advarsel

Blanke frontplader og sidepaneler tjener tre vigtige formål: de forhinder udsættelse for farlig spænding og strøm inde i chassiset, de isolerer elektromagnetisk interferens (EMI), der kan forstyre andet udstyr, og de leder en strøm af kølig luft gennem chassiset. Betjen ikke systemet medmindre alle kort, frontplader, sidepaneler og bagpaneler er på plads.


Jewelry Removal Warning

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. Statement 43

Waarschuwing

Alvorens aan apparatuur te werken die met elektrische leidingen is verbonden, sieraden (inclusief ringen, kettingen en horloges) verwijderen. Metalen voorwerpen worden warm wanneer ze met stroom en aarde zijn verbonden, en kunnen ernstige brandwonden veroorzaken of het metalen voorwerp aan de aansluitklemmen lassen.

Varoitus

Ennen kuin työskentelet voimavirtajohtoihin kytkettyjen laitteiden parissa, ota pois kaikki korut (sormukset, kaulakorut ja kellot mukaan lukien). Metalliesineet kuumenevat, kun ne ovat yhteydessä sähkövirran ja maan kanssa, ja ne voivat aiheuttaa vakavia palovammoja tai hitsata metalliesineet kiinni liitäntänapoihin.

Cisco 7200 VXR Routers—Removing and Installing a Port Adapter in a Port Adapter Jacket Card

The Port Adapter Jacket Card is used in the I/O controller slot of a Cisco 7200 VXR router with either an NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 installed, and allows a port adapter to be installed in it. Both the NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 incorporate I/O controller functionality, so that with either network processing engine the I/O controller slot is available. The NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 have a third dedicated peripheral component interconnect (PCI) bus that provides additional bandwidth to the chassis. The third PCI bus allows a port adapter with a high bandwidth point requirement to be used with the Port Adapter Jacket Card in the I/O controller slot.


Note Online insertion and removal (OIR) is not supported on the Port Adapter Jacket Card. OIR is supported on the port adapter. You must have the chassis powered off to install or remove the Port Adapter Jacket Card.
