1 The cables come in only one length. Custom cable-lengths are not available. Excessive voltage drop and marginal or failed operation can occur with cables of different lengths. Use of cables other than the ones listed can cause damage to the Cisco RPS or external device.

2 This configuration is not recommended due to the 30-second reboot and downtime.


The connection options are shown in the following figures:

Quasi-redundant—Figure 6. The AC input to the Cisco RPS is fully redundant, but the DC output to the external devices is not.


Note Quasi-redundant is the only recommended configuration for Cisco switches and hubs.


Fully redundant—Figure 7. The power source is fully redundant because there are two AC input modules and two DC output power modules connected to each external device. If any power module fails, there is a full backup.


Note This configuration is not supported for switches and hubs.


Redundant with reboot—Figure 8. In normal operation, the hub or switch is powered directly by its AC power connection. If the internal power system of the hub or switch fails, the device powers down for about 30 seconds until the Cisco RPS begins supplying power.


Note Redundancy with reboot works for the following devices only: FastHub 400 series hubs, Catalyst 1900 series and Catalyst 2820 switches, and Catalyst 2900 series and Catalyst 3500 series XL switches.


Mixed quasi-redundant and fully redundant—Figure 9. Three external devices can be powered, with two in quasi-redundant mode and one in fully redundant mode.

Cable Connection Procedures

Before connecting to external devices, read the power warnings below. Cisco recommends that you disconnect all power before beginning.


Note You can connect an additional external device to a Cisco RPS that is already powered up without interrupting power to the Cisco RPS or to any other connected external devices. Be sure to connect your cable to the Cisco RPS first and then to the external device. However, in a redundant-with-reboot configuration, to ensure proper operation, you must power up the switch or hub before powering up the Cisco RPS. Therefore, always connect the switch to AC before you connect it to the Cisco RPS. Failure to follow the proper power-up sequence can result in incorrect LED displays.



Warning Attach only the Cisco RPS (model PWR600-AC-RPS) to the RPS receptacle. To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this device.



Warning Before performing any of the following procedures, ensure that power is removed from the DC circuit. To ensure that all power is OFF, locate the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the OFF 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.



Warning Before working on a system that has an on/off switch, turn OFF the power and unplug the power cord. To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this device.



Warning This unit might have more than one power cord. To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect the two power supply cords before servicing the unit. To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this device.


To connect an external hub, switch, router, or concentrator to a Cisco RPS, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Disconnect the AC power cord on a hub or switch; turn the power switch to the OFF position on a router or concentrator.

Step 2 Connect the DC-output end of the cable to the RPS connector on the rear panel of the hub, switch, router, or concentrator. The DC-output end of the RPS cable has either 8 or 18 pins in the connector. (For connector locations, see Figure 10 through Figure 13.)

Figure 11 RPS Connector Location on a Cisco Switch (Typical)

Figure 12 RPS 8-Pin Connector Location on a Cisco Router or Concentrator (Typical)

Figure 13 RPS 18-Pin Connector Location on a Cisco Router (Typical)

Step 3 Connect the DC-input end of the cable to a Cisco RPS rear-panel connector as shown in Figure 14 or Figure 15.

Figure 14 Connecting a One-to-One Cable to a Cisco RPS for Quasi-Redundant Power

Figure 15 Connecting a Two-to-One Y-Cable to a Cisco RPS for Fully Redundant Power

Step 4 On the Cisco RPS rear panel, connect one or two AC power cables. A single AC power cable can go into either AC connector. Two AC power cables provide parallel AC power sources. Use the cable locks on the Cisco RPS to lock the cables in place. (See Figure 16.)

Figure 16 Connecting AC Power Cables to the Cisco RPS


5 Power Up the Equipment


Step 1 If you are using the redundant-with-reboot configuration (not recommended), power up the switch by connecting the AC power cord of the hub or switch to an AC power outlet.


Note If you use the redundant-with-reboot configuration, it is important to power up the hub or switch before powering up the Cisco RPS to ensure correct operation. If the Cisco RPS powers up first, the LEDs might not indicate the actual state.


Step 2 Plug the other end of the Cisco RPS AC power cable into an AC power outlet.

Step 3 Power up the Cisco RPS. There is a separate power switch for each AC input power source. Make sure that the power switch is on for each AC power source used. (See Figure 17.)

Figure 17 Powering Up the Cisco RPS

The Cisco RPS provides power in 10 to 15 seconds. The Cisco RPS is working properly when all its front-panel LEDs are solid green. If the external device does not power up, refer to troubleshooting section of the Cisco Redundant Power System Hardware Installation Guide on Cisco.com.
