Procedure


Step 1 Install the two screws 5 inches (12.7 centimeters) horizontally apart on a wall or other vertical surface.

The screws should protrude 0.25 inch (0.6 centimeter) from the surface of the wall.


Caution If you install the screws in drywall, use hollow-wall anchors (1/8 inch by 5/16 inch) to secure the screws. If the screws are not properly anchored, the strain of the cables connected to the router back panel could pull the router from the wall.

Step 2 Remove the rubber feet from the router.

Step 3 Hang the router on the screws. This is the appropriate orientation for safe use. (See Figure 4-3 and Figure 4-4.)


Rack-Mounting the Chassis


Warning Read the wall-mounting instructions carefully before beginning installation. Failure to use the correct hardware or to follow the correct procedures could result in a hazardous situation to people and damage to the system. Statement 378

Warning Stability hazard. The rack stabilizing mechanism must be in place, or the rack must be bolted to the floor before you slide the unit out for servicing. Failure to stabilize the rack can cause the rack to tip over. Statement 1048

The Cisco 1900 series router can be installed in a 19-inch EIA rack. Mounting brackets allow installing in either a front and rear facing position.

You can mount the router in the following ways:

Front mounting—Brackets attached at the front of the chassis with the front panel facing forward.

Back mounting—Brackets attached at the back of the chassis with the back panel facing forward.


Note The rubber feet need to be removed for rack mounting.


Attaching Rack-Mount Brackets to Cisco 1900 Series Routers

Use four of the supplied number-8 Phillips screws to attach the long side of each bracket to the router. Figure 4-5 shows how to attach the brackets to the sides of the router with the front panel forward. Torque the screws to 15 to 18 in-lb (1.7 to 2.0 N-m).

Depending on your router model and if you decide to front mount or back mount, attach the brackets according to one of the following figures:

Cisco 1900 Series Router Wiring Procedure for DC Input

To connect a router to a DC power source, perform the following steps.

Procedure


Step 1 Remove power from the DC circuit. To ensure that power is removed from the DC circuit, locate the circuit breaker for the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF position, and tape the circuit-breaker switch in the OFF position.


Warning Before performing any of the following procedures, ensure that power is removed from the DC circuit. Statement 1003

Warning Use copper conductors only. Statement 1025

Warning Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install, replace, or service this equipment. Statement 1030

Tip Secure all power cabling when installing this unit to avoid disturbing field-wiring connections.



Warning When stranded wiring is required, use approved wiring terminations, such as closed-loop or spade-type with upturned lugs. These terminations should be the appropriate size for the wires and should clamp both the insulation and conductor. Statement 1002

Step 2 Remove the plastic safety cover from the terminal block. Save the plastic safety cover, which you will put back on.

Step 3 Remove the negative and positive screws from the terminal block. You do not need to remove any other screws. Save the screws, which will be used to attach the wires to the terminals.

Step 4 Use the screws to connect the black wire to the negative terminal and the white wire to the positive terminal. Tighten the terminal screws to 8.0 ± 0.5 in-lb (0.9 ± 0.05 N-m). See Figure 4-14.


Caution Do not overtorque the terminal block contact screws.

Warning This unit might have more than one power supply connection. All connections must be removed to de-energize the unit. Statement 1028

Warning The illustration shows the DC power supply terminal block. Wire the DC power supply as illustrated. The proper wiring sequence is ground to ground, positive to positive, and negative to negative. The ground wire should always be connected first and disconnected last. Statement 239

Warning An exposed wire lead from a DC-input power source can conduct harmful levels of electricity. Be sure that no exposed portion of the DC-input power source wire extends from the terminal block plug. Statement 122

Caution Dual sources with opposite-polarity grounding damage equipment.

Step 5 Reinstall the plastic safety cover over the terminal. See Figure 4-15 and Figure 4-16.

Warning The safety cover is an integral part of the product. Do not operate the unit without the safety cover installed. Operating the unit without the cover in place will invalidate the safety approvals and pose a risk of fire and electrical hazards. Statement 117

Step 6 Turn on power to the DC circuit. Be sure to remove the tape that was used to secure the circuit-breaker switch in the OFF position.
