CSACS 1120 Series Appliance Overview

The CSACS 1120 Series appliance (see Figure 1-1) is contained in a standard shelf-rack enclosure. The appliance weighs from 15 lb (9.071 kg) to 33 lb (14.96 kg) depending on what options are installed in the appliance. It measures 1.69 inches high x 17 inches wide x 20 inches deep (4.29 cm x 43.18 cm x 50.80 cm). These dimensions do not include the rack handles.

Figure 1-1 Cisco 1120 Secure Access Control System Front View

The CSACS 1120 Series appliance is configured for AC-input power and has a single auto-ranging AC-input power supply, mounted in a standard 19-inch (48.3 cm), 4-post equipment rack (using the rack-mount brackets provided). The CSACS 1120 features include:

Microprocessor—Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13-GHz processor with an 800-MHz front side bus (FSB) and 2 MB of Layer 2 cache.

Four synchronous dynamic RAM (SDRAM) slots that support up to 4 GB.

Support for up to 2 x 250-GB SATA hard drives.

Two fixed RJ-45 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T network interface connectors (located on the rear panel).

One slimline DVD-ROM drive (located on the front-panel).

One DB-9 serial (console) port (located on the rear-panel).

Front-to-rear airflow blowers using two 40-mm exhaust fans and ducting for the CPU and memory, two 40-mm exhaust fans built into the power supply, and one PCI exhaust fan.

Expansion slot support—One PCI-X (located on the rear panel).

Three USB 2.0 ports (two located on the rear panel, one on the front-panel).

One PS/2 keyboard port (located on the rear panel).

One PS/2 video monitor port (located on the rear panel).

One DB-15 serial (video) port (located on the rear panel).

Rear-access cabling.

Four green, front-panel appliance LEDs:

Power (indicates whether the power supply is operational).

Hard disk drive activity (indicates whether the drive is functioning properly).

Network Interface connector (NIC) 1 and NIC 2 activity (indicates whether interrupts or packet transfers are running).

For a description of the LEDs, see CSACS 1120 Appliance Front-Panel View.

The CSACS 1120 appliance is normally shipped with a rack-mount hardware kit which includes either brackets or rails that allow the CSACS 1120 to be positioned in a 4-post equipment rack. For more information, see Chapter 4 "Installing the Cisco 1120 Secure Access Control System Hardware."


Note The rack-mount hardware kit does not include a 2-post equipment rack.

Ethernet

Serial

Video monitor

Keyboard


Warning To avoid electric shock, do not connect safety extra-low voltage (SELV) circuits to telephone-network voltage (TNV) circuits. LAN ports contain SELV circuits, and WAN ports contain TNV circuits. Some LAN and WAN ports both use RJ-45 connectors. Use caution when connecting cables. Statement 1021

Ethernet Port (NIC 1 and NIC 2)

The CSACS 1120 Series appliance comes with two integrated dual-port Ethernet controllers. These controllers provide an interface for connecting to 10-Mb/s, 100-Mb/s, or 1000-Mb/s networks and provide full-duplex (FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception of data on the Ethernet LAN.

To access the Ethernet port, connect a Category 3, 4, 5, 5E, or 6 unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable to the RJ-45 connector on the back of the appliance.

Table 1-3 describes the UTP cable Categories.

Serial (Console) Port

The CSACS 1120 Series appliance has one standard serial (console) port. Use the configuration or setup utility program to change the port address assignments.


Note The configuration or setup utility program is located in the CSACS 1120 Series appliance ROM and can be accessed through the serial (console) port.


Serial (Console) Port Connector

The CSACS 1120 Series appliance has one serial port connector located on the back panel of the appliance.

Figure 1-7 shows the pin number assignments for the 9-pin, male D-shell serial port connector located on the back panel of the appliance. These pin number assignments conform to industry standards.

Environmental Monitoring

The CSACS 1120 Series appliance has protection circuits that monitor and detect overcurrent, overvoltage, and overtemperature conditions inside the appliance. If the power supply shuts down, or latches off, an AC cycle switches off for 15 seconds and switches on for 1 second to reset the power supply.

This section contains:

Overcurrent Protection (OCP)

Overvoltage Protection (OVP)

Overtemperature Protection (OTP)

Overcurrent Protection (OCP)

The power supply shuts down and latches off after an overcurrent condition occurs. This latch is cleared by an AC power interruption.


Note The power supply will not be damaged from repeated power cycling.


Overvoltage Protection (OVP)

The power supply shuts down and latches off after an overvoltage condition occurs. This latch is cleared by an AC power interruption.

Overtemperature Protection (OTP)

The power supply is protected against overtemperature conditions caused by the loss of fan cooling or excessive ambient temperature. In an OTP condition, the power supply will shut down. When the power supply temperature drops to the rated safety limit, the power supply restores power automatically.
