Step 2 To replace a Cisco USB Flash memory stick, simply insert the module into the USB port 0 or 1 port as shown in Figure 6-26. The Flash memory module can be inserted in only one way, and can be inserted or removed regardless of whether the router is powered up or not.


Note Figure 6-26 is only a sample of how the memory stick is inserted into the port and does not display the actual router faceplate.


Figure 6-26 Router Flash Token Memory Stick

 


Note You can insert or remove the memory stick whether the router is powered on or not.



 

This completes the USB Flash memory installation procedure.

Removing and Replacing the Cisco 4000 Series ISRs Power Supplies

Some routers have replaceable power supply modules. These modular power supplies can be removed or installed using only a screwdriver.


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



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



Warning Care should be taken while removing the power supplies and power inverters (especially in boost mode of operation). If the total power consumption is higher than can be supported by one power supply alone and in this condition a power supply is removed, the hardware can be damaged. This may then result in the system being unstable or unusable.


AC Power Supplies

Overview of the AC Power Supply

All of the power supply have a similar modular form factor, with no cabling, for easy removal and replacement.

This completes the procedure for removing a DC power supply from the Cisco ISR4431.

Installing DC Input Power on the Cisco ISR4431 Router


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



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


This section describes how to install the DC power supply input power leads to the Cisco ISR4431 Router DC input power supply. Before you begin, read these important notices:

  • The color coding of the DC input power supply leads depends on the color coding of the DC power source at your site. Ensure that the lead color coding you choose for the DC input power supply matches the lead color coding used at the DC power source and verify that the power source is connected to the negative (–) terminal and to the positive (+) terminal on the power supply.
  • Ensure that the chassis ground is connected on the chassis before you begin installing the DC power supply. Follow the steps provided in the “Chassis Grounding” section.

Wiring the DC Input Power Source

The Cisco ISR4431 DC power supply has a terminal block that is installed into the power supply terminal block header.

Use the following steps to wire the DC input power source:


Step 1 Turn off the circuit breaker from the power source.

Step 2 Ensure that the power switch is in the Standby position.


Note It is not required to place the power switch in the Standby position if you want to hot-swap a single power supply.


Step 3 Insert the power supply in the power-supply slot, and gently push it into the slot. When correctly installed, the DC power supply (excluding the extraction handle) is flush with the router.

Step 4 Wire can be stripped and terminated directly to the power supply terminal block, or a crimp style spade terminal lug can be used. If using a terminal lug follow the manufacturer's instructions for terminating the lug to the wire. If terminating directly to the terminal block using bare wire, following the below directions. Use a wire-stripping tool to strip each of the two wires coming from the DC input power source and strip the wires to approximately 0.39 inch (10 mm) + 0.02 inch (0.5 mm). It it recommended that 14 AWG insulated wire be used. Do not strip more than the recommended length of wire because doing so could leave the wire exposed from the terminal block. Figure 6-31 shows a stripped DC input power source wire.

Figure 6-31 Stripped DC Input Power Source Wire

0.39 inch (10 mm) is the recommended wire-strip length for the terminal block.


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. Statement 122


Step 5 Identify the positive and negative feed positions for the terminal block connection. The wiring sequence is:

1. Positive (+) lead wire (right)

2. Negative (–) lead wire (left)

Step 6 Remove the router bezel. See Figure 6-32. The bezel is secured with snap latches. To remove the bezel, hold the top and bottom and pull the bezel.

Tip Use the show controller command at the Cisco IOS prompt to determine whether you are using an SFP certified by Cisco.


Installing SFPs

Laser Safety Guidelines

Optical SFPs use a small laser to generate the fiber-optic signal. Keep the optical transmit and receive ports covered whenever a cable is not connected to the port.


Warning Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from disconnected fibers or connectors. Do not stare into beams or view directly with optical instruments. Statement 1051



Warning Ultimate disposal of this product should be handled according to all national laws and regulations. Statement 1040


Follow these steps to install an SFP module in your router:


Step 1 Read the “Safety Warnings” section section and disconnect the power supply before you perform any module replacement.

Step 2 Slide the SFP into the router connector until it locks into position (see Figure 6-40).


Tip If the SFP uses a bale-clasp latch (see Figure 6-40), the handle should be on top of the SFP module.


Figure 6-40 Installing an SFP Module

 


Caution Do not remove the optical port plugs from the SFP until you are ready to connect cabling.

Step 3 Connect the network cable to the SFP module.


 

Removing SFP Modules

Follow these steps to remove an SFP from the router:


Step 1 Read the “Safety Warnings” section section and disconnect the power supply before you perform any module replacement.

Step 2 Disconnect all cables from the SFP.


Warning Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from disconnected fibers or connectors. Do not stare into beams or view directly with optical instruments. Statement 1051



Caution The latching mechanism used on many SFPs locks the SFP into place when cables are connected. Do not pull on the cabling in an attempt to remove the SFP.

Step 3 Disconnect the SFP latch. See Figure 6-41.


Note SFP modules use various latch designs to secure the module in the SFP port. Latch designs are not linked to SFP model or technology type. For information on the SFP technology type and model, see the label on the side of the SFP.

Tip Use a pen, screwdriver, or other small straight tool to gently release a bale-clasp handle if you cannot reach it with your fingers.


Step 4 Grasp the SFP on both sides and remove it from the router.


 

Removing, Replacing, and Installing an Internal PoE Daughter Card

Use the following procedure to install or replace an Internal PoE daughter card:


Step 1 Read the “Safety Warnings” section and disconnect the power supply before you perform any module replacement.

Step 2 Remove the five screws.

Step 3 Remove the power cable to motherboard.

Step 4 Access the PoE card slot. See the “Replacing the Chassis Cover” section.

Step 5 Locate the card to be removed or replaced. See Figure 6-42 for the location of the PoE card on the motherboard.
