Tip While you perform this installation, record your progress and site information. See the suggested format in the "Keeping Track—Checklist" section.



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



Warning Read the installation instructions before connecting the system to the power source. Statement 1004


Safety Recommendations

The following information is included to alert you to safety recommendations and best practices when working with this equipment.

Maintaining Safety with Electricity

Follow these guidelines when working on equipment powered by electricity.


Warning Do not work on the system or connect or disconnect cables during periods of lightning activity. Statement 1001



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


General Safety Practices

Follow these guidelines to ensure personal safety and protect the equipment:

Keep the chassis area clear and dust-free during and after installation.

Put the removed chassis cover in a safe place.

Keep tools away from walk areas where you and others could fall over them.

Do not wear loose clothing that could get caught in the chassis.

Wear safety glasses if you are working under any conditions that might be hazardous to your eyes.


Warning This equipment must be installed and maintained by service personnel as defined by AS/NZS 3260. Incorrectly connecting this equipment to a general-purpose outlet could be hazardous. The telecommunications lines must be disconnected 1) before unplugging the main power connector or 2) while the housing is open, or both. Statement 1043


Safety Tips

Use these tips as safety guidelines when installing or working around this equipment.

Locate the emergency power-off switch for the room in which you are working. Then, if an electrical accident occurs, you can act quickly to turn off the power.

Disconnect all power before installing or removing a chassis.

Do not work alone if potentially hazardous conditions exist.

Never assume that power is disconnected from a circuit. Always check.

Look carefully for possible hazards in your work area, such as moist floors, ungrounded power extension cables, and missing safety grounds.

If an electrical accident occurs, proceed as follows:

Use caution; do not become a victim yourself.

Turn off power to the system.

If possible, send another person to get medical aid. Otherwise, assess the condition of the victim and then call for help.

Determine if the person needs rescue breathing or external cardiac compressions; then take appropriate action.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. ESD occurs when electronic components are improperly handled; it can result in complete or intermittent failures.

Always follow ESD-prevention procedures when removing and replacing components.

Ensure that the chassis is electrically connected to earth ground.

Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap, ensuring that it makes good skin contact.

Connect the clip to the ESD-strap connection jack (to the left of the power switch on the back of the chassis) or to an unpainted chassis frame surface.


Caution For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap, which should be between 1 and 10 megohm (Mohm).

Site Log

We recommend that you maintain a Site Log to record all actions relevant to the system. Site Log entries might include the following:

Desktop-Mounting the Chassis


Step 1 Verify that a suitable AC power outlet is available.


Caution Do not plug this unit into an AC outlet that does not have a UL-certified receptacle that is properly tied into the building ground.

Step 2 Place the four rubber feet (from the accessory kit) in the four indentations on the underside of the chassis. This helps provide proper airflow through and around the chassis.

Step 3 Place the Cisco IAD on the desktop.


Caution Do not place anything on top of the chassis that weighs more than 10 lb (4.5 kg). Excessive weight on top can damage the chassis.


Setting the Cisco IAD2435 on a Desktop

You can place Cisco IAD2435 on a desktop.


Caution Do not place anything on top of the router that weighs more than 5 pounds (2.25 kg), and do not stack routers on a desktop. Excessive distributed weight of more than 5 pounds, or pound point load of 5 pounds on top could damage the chassis.

Installing the Ground Connection


Warning This equipment must be grounded. Never defeat the ground conductor or operate the equipment in the absence of a suitably installed ground conductor. Contact the appropriate electrical inspection authority or an electrician if you are uncertain that suitable grounding is available. Statement 1024



Warning AC connected units must have a permanent ground connection in addition to the power cable ground wire. NEBS-compliant grounding satisfies this requirement. Statement 284



Warning This equipment needs to be grounded. Use a green and yellow 12 to 14 AWG ground wire to connect the host to earth ground during normal use. Statement 242



Warning The importance of proper grounding cannot be overemphasized. It will minimize the potential for damage to your system and maximize safety at the system site. We recommend you consult a licensed electrician or your local electric utility company if you have any questions. Statement 269



Warning A ground wire must always be a single piece of wire. Never splice two wires together for a ground. Corrosion and weathering can lead to a poor connection at the splice, making the ground ineffective and dangerous. Statement 270



Warning Use copper conductors only. Statement 1025



Warning Installation of the equipment must comply with local and national electrical codes. Statement 1074


You must connect the chassis to a reliable earth ground; the ground wire must be installed in accordance with local electrical safety standards.

For NEBS-compliant grounding, use size AWG 6 (13 mm2) wire and the ground lug provided in the accessory kit.

For NEC-compliant grounding, use size AWG 14 (2 mm2) or larger wire and an appropriate user-supplied ring terminal.

For EN/IEC 60950-compliant grounding, use size AWG 18 (1 mm2) or larger wire and an appropriate user-supplied ring terminal.

To ground the chassis, follow these steps:


Step 1 Locate a suitable ground location.


Tip Use a multimeter to measure the resistance between various ground locations, such as the following:

Between the ground of a junction box (outlet) and the ground of a power tap

Between the ground of a junction box and a metal water pipe

Between the Cisco IAD chassis and the ground of a power tap

Between the Cisco IAD chassis and the ground of a junction box

A good ground connection should read between 0.0 and 0.5 ohm.


Step 2 Strip one end of the ground wire to the length required for the ground lug or terminal.

For the NEBS ground lug—approximately 0.75 inch (20 millimeters)

For user-provided ring terminal—as required

Step 3 Crimp the ground wire to the ground lug or ring terminal, using a crimp tool of the appropriate size. (See Figure 3-13.)

Figure 3-13 Crimping a Ground Lug onto the Ground Wire

Step 4 Attach the ground lug or ring terminal to the chassis as shown in Figure 3-14, Figure 3-15, or Figure 3-16. For the ground lug, use the two screws with captive locking washers provided. For a ring terminal, use one of the screws provided. Use a number 2 Phillips screwdriver, and tighten the screws to a torque of 8 to 10 in-lb (0.9 to 1.1 N-m).


Note You can orient the crimped end of the ground lug in either direction (right or left).

index.htm


Caution WAN and voice interface cards do not support online insertion and removal (hot swapping). Before inserting a card into the Cisco IAD chassis, you must turn off electrical power and disconnect network cables.

Always use an ESD-preventive wrist strap before handling cards.

To install a WIC or VIC, follow these steps:


Step 1 Use a number 2 Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws holding the metal plate over the card slot cover. Remove the plate.

Step 2 Holding the interface card by the edges, line up the card with the guides on both sides of the slot.

Step 3 Insert the card in the slot. Push until it is firmly seated in the connector and the front panel of the card is flush with the back panel of the Cisco IAD.

Step 4 Use the screwdriver to tighten the captive screws on the card.


Connecting Cables

Cisco IAD ports are color-coded for identification.


Warning Do not work on the system or connect or disconnect cables during periods of lightning activity. Statement 1001]



Warning This product relies on the building's installation for short-circuit (overcurrent) protection. Ensure that the protective device is rated not greater than: 120 VAC, 15A (240 VAC, 10A international) Statement 1005



Warning To prevent accidental discharge in the event of a power line cross, route on-premise wiring away from power cables and off-premise wiring, or use a grounded shield to separate the on-premise wiring from the power cables and off-premise wiring. A power line cross is an event, such as a lightning strike, that causes a power surge. Off-premise wiring is designed to withstand power line crosses. On-premise wiring is protected from power line crosses by a device that provides overcurrent and overvoltage protection. Nevertheless, if the on-premise wiring is in close proximity to, or not shielded from, the off-premise wiring or power cables during a lightning strike or power surge, the on-premise wiring can carry a dangerous discharge to the attached interface, equipment, and nearby personnel. Statement 338

To connect the T1/E1 port to a network demarcation device, use the procedure in this section.


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



Warning Hazardous network voltages are present in WAN ports regardless of whether power to the router is OFF or ON. To avoid electric shock, use caution when working near WAN ports. When detaching cables, detach the end away from the router first. Statement 1026



Note The T1/E1-WAN port has a built-in CSU/DSU for connecting to a service provider's network interface.


Cable

Use an RJ-48 T1/E1 cable (not included).

Procedure


Step 1 Connect the RJ-48 T1/E1 cable to the T1-WAN port (marked T1-WAN on a light-green label).

Step 2 Connect the RJ-48C/CA81A jack to the network demarcation device (telco demarcation or equivalent).
