Caution If the power supply unit was originally fitted with the AS54XM-AC-RPS and during the power supply unit's lifecycle is exchanged to the AS54XM-DC-RPS, Cisco IOS will report that the AS54XM-AC-RPS is still installed.

For this reason, Cisco does not recommend replacing the AC power supply with the DC power supply, or the DC power supply with the AC power supply.

To remove the power supply, follow these steps:


Step 1 Place the chassis so that the rear panel is facing you.

Step 2 Remove the three mounting screws that secure the power supply to the chassis and set them aside. (See Figure B-4.)

Figure B-4 Removing the Power Supply Mounting Screws

Step 3 Turn the chassis so that the front panel is facing you.

Step 4 Lift the air separator out of the chassis. (See Figure B-5.)

Figure B-5 Removing the Air Separator

Step 5 Pull the fan closest to the power supply away from the sheet metal tabs. (See Figure B-6.)

Figure B-6 Pulling the Fan Away from the Tabs

Step 6 Lift the fan out of the chassis, and set the fan on top of the power supply. (See Figure B-7.)

Figure B-7 Removing the Fan


Caution Do not attempt to remove the fan cables without first depressing the tab as shown in Figure B-8. You can damage the fan cables by applying stress if the connector is not removed properly.

Step 7 Disconnect the fan cable, and set aside the fan. (See Figure B-8.)

Figure B-8 Disconnecting the Fan Cable

Step 8 Remove the next fan and disconnect its cable.

Step 9 Remove the cables for the two remaining fans. You can disconnect these cables without removing the fans.


Note There are three different lengths of 2-wire, 12 VDC power cables. The two shortest cables go to the fan that you removed in Step 6. The two longer cables go to the three remaining fans removed in Step 8 and Step 9. The remaining cable goes to the power connector on the backplane.

These cables are color-coded. If you use an incorrect cable to connect a fan or the backplane, then you will be unable to make one of the other connections. To help with reconnecting the cables, write down which colored cable goes to each fan.


Step 10 Disconnect the power connectors from the backplane. First disconnect the 2-pin 12V connector, then disconnect the power connector's 4-jack harness. (See Figure B-9.)

Figure B-9 Disconnecting the Power Connectors from the Backplane

Step 11 Disconnect the 6-pin connector from the system board. (See Figure B-9.)

Step 12 Slide the power supply toward the front panel to disengage the power supply hook from the chassis hook, and remove the power supply from the chassis. (See Figure B-10.)

Figure B-10 Lifting the Power Supply Out of the Chassis


Installing the Power Supply

A redundant power supply has two power cords to provide higher reliability and load balancing. Use the redundant power supply to:

Manage your system with alarms and other management features

Provide a higher reliability with a second built-in power supply

Balance loads

To install the redundant power supply, follow these steps:


Step 1 Place the redundant power supply in the chassis, and slide it toward the rear panel. You will be able to feel the chassis hook engage with the slot on the bottom of the power supply. (See Figure B-11.)

Figure B-11 Inserting the Power Supply in the Chassis

Step 2 Connect the 6-pin connector to the system board. (See Figure B-12.)


Note For clarity, the illustration does not show the fans in place or the fan cables.


Figure B-12 Connecting the 6-Pin Connector to the System Board

Step 3 Reconnect the power connector's 4-jack harness, then reconnect the 2-pin 12V connector. (See Figure B-13.)

Figure B-13 Reconnecting the Power Cables to the Backplane

Step 4 Route the fan cables as shown in Figure B-14. Note that the two longest cables are connected to the two installed fans on the right. The connectors to these two fans will fit into the space between the second and third fans.


Caution Route the fan cables carefully to avoid pinching the cables near the bridge lance. (See Figure B-14.)

Figure B-14 Routing the Fan Cables

Step 5 Insert the second fan, making sure that the fan cable feeds to your left. Position the cables to the two installed fans so that they will fit under the first and second fans. Press the fan into place between the four sheet metal tabs. (See Figure B-14.)

Step 6 Reconnect the two 2-pin fan cables to the remaining fan. (See Figure B-15.)

Figure B-15 Reconnecting the Fan Cables

Step 7 Reinstall the remaining fan. Make sure you orient the fan so that the cables feed to the right (toward the second fan). Route the cable completely under the fan before you reconnect it. This takes up the extra length of fan cable and keeps it out of the way.

When correctly assembled, the cables appear as shown in Figure B-16.

Figure B-16 Correct Fan Cable Routing

Step 8 Replace the air separator, holding all cables to the right of the separator as you slip it into the chassis. (See Figure B-17.)

Figure B-17 Replacing the Air Separator

Step 9 Turn the chassis so that the rear panel faces you, and reinstall the three mounting screws. (See Figure B-18.)

Figure B-18 Replacing the Redundant Power Supply Mounting Screws

Step 10 Replace the chassis cover using the procedures in the following section, "Replacing the Chassis Cover"


Replacing the Chassis Cover

To replace the chassis cover, follow these steps:


Step 1 Place the chassis bottom so that the front panel is facing you.

Step 2 Hold the chassis cover over the chassis bottom, and align each of the cover tabs with the chassis tabs at the top rear of the chassis. (See Figure B-19.)

Figure B-19 Replacing the Chassis Cover

Step 3 Lower the front of the top cover to close the chassis, and ensure the following:

The chassis cover tabs fit under the edge of the chassis rear panel so that they are not exposed.

The chassis tabs fit under the chassis cover so that they are not exposed.

The chassis cover side tabs on both sides fit inside the chassis side panels so that they are not exposed.

When the chassis cover is properly assembled, no tabs are visible. (See Figure B-20.)

Figure B-20 Cisco AS5400 Chassis

Step 4 Secure the chassis cover with four screws. (See Figure B-19.)

Step 5 Reinstall the chassis on a rack, desktop, or table.

Step 6 Reinstall all interface cables.

Step 7 Reconnect the AC power cord. Or, if using a DC-powered unit, refer to Figure B-21, and complete Step a through Step d.


Warning The illustration shows the DC power supply terminal block. Wire the DC power supply using the appropriate wire terminations at the wiring end, as illustrated. The proper wiring sequence is ground to ground, return to return, and negative to negative. Note that the ground wire should always be connected first and disconnected last. To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this device.


Figure B-21 DC Power Supply Connections


Caution Do not overtorque the terminal block contact screws. The recommended torque is 5.0 in.-lb (0.56 N-m).

a. Insert the safety ground (green wires) into the terminal block ground connectors and tighten the locking screws. Ensure that no bare wire is exposed.

b. Insert the 48 VDC Return wires into the terminal block positive connectors (+) and tighten the locking screws. Ensure that no bare wire is exposed.

c. Insert the -48 VDC wires into the terminal block negative connectors (-) and tighten the locking screws. Ensure that no bare wire is exposed.

d. Make sure the power supply cords are secured to the cable strain-relief clamps on the DC power supply with cable ties.


Warning After wiring the DC power supply, remove the tape from the circuit breaker switch handle and reinstate power by moving the handle of the circuit breaker to the ON position. To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this device.



Note You can order a Y-connector (CAB-AC-Y) to plug into both power connectors in the power supply. If you use this Y-connector, you remove the backup feature of this power supply by eliminating redundant operations and reducing reliability. Cisco highly recommends that you use both power cords whenever possible.


Step 8 Power ON the universal gateway.

The internal power supply fan should power on. If you are using a redundant power supply, the six green LEDs on the front of the power supply should light. If one LED is not lit, consult the appropriate redundant power supply software message to determine where the problem is located.
