General Rack Installation Guidelines

When planning your rack installation, consider the following guidelines:

  • The Cisco ASR 1013 Router overall height is 22.75 inches (57.8 cm). You can install three Cisco ASR 1013 routers in a 42RU equipment rack; but must allow at least one to two inches (2.54 cm to 5.08 cm) of vertical clearance between the router and any equipment above or below it. Measure the proposed rack location before mounting the chassis in the rack.
  • Before using a particular rack, check for obstructions (such as a power strip) that could impair rack-mount installation. If a power strip does impair a rack-mount installation, remove the power strip before installing the chassis, and then replace it after the chassis is installed.
  • Allow sufficient clearance around the rack for maintenance. If the rack is mobile, you can push it back near a wall or cabinet for normal operation and pull it out for maintenance (installing or moving cards, connecting cables, or replacing or upgrading components). Otherwise, allow 19 inches (48.3 cm) of clearance to remove field-replaceable units.
  • Maintain a minimum clearance of 3 inches (7.62 cm) on the front, top, and sides of the chassis for the cooling air inlet and exhaust ports, respectively. Avoid placing the chassis in an overly congested rack or directly next to another equipment rack; otherwise, the heated exhaust air from other equipment can enter the inlet air vents and cause an overtemperature condition inside the router.

Caution To prevent chassis overheating, never install a Cisco ASR 1013 Router in an enclosed room that is not properly ventilated or air conditioned.

  • Always install heavier equipment in the lower half of a rack to maintain a low center of gravity to prevent the rack from falling over.
  • Install and use the cable-management brackets included with the Cisco ASR 1013 Router to keep cables organized and out of the way of the cards and processors. Ensure that cables from other equipment already installed in the rack do not impair access to the cards or require you to disconnect cables unnecessarily to perform equipment maintenance or upgrades.
  • Install rack stabilizers (if available) before you mount the chassis.
  • Provide an adequate chassis ground (earth) connection for your chassis.

In addition to the preceding guidelines, review the precautions for avoiding excessive temperature conditions in the “Electrical Safety” section.

Guidelines for Equipment Rack Installation

The chassis should already be in the area where you will install it. If you have not determined where to install your chassis, see the “Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers Component Overview” section for information about site considerations.

When installing the Cisco ASR 1013 Router, consider the following items:

  • The Cisco ASR 1013 Router requires at least 3 inches (7.62 cm) of clearance at the inlet and exhaust vents (the front and top/rear sides of the chassis).
  • The Cisco ASR 1013 Router should be installed off the floor. Dust that accumulates on the floor is drawn into the interior of the router by the cooling fans. Excessive dust inside the router can cause overtemperature conditions and component failures.
  • Maintain a minimum clearance of 3 inches (7.62 cm) for the front and rear of the chassis for proper chassis cooling. Avoid placing the chassis in an overly congested rack or directly next to another equipment rack; otherwise, the heated exhaust air from other equipment can enter the inlet air vents and cause an overtemperature condition inside the router.
  • If rack space allows, it is recommended to leave one rack unit (1.75 inch or 4.45 cm) of vertical clearance between the chassis and any equipment directly above it or below.

Caution Depending on your installation and co-located equipment power dissipation, it is recommended to have some air gap between chassis, if space allows, to reduce residual heating from one chassis to another.

  • Have the cable-management bracket (used in four places on the Cisco ASR 1013 chassis: upper half, lower half, and left and right sides) available if you plan to install it on the front of the chassis.
  • An adequate chassis ground (earth) connection exists for your router chassis (see the “Attaching a Chassis Ground Connection” section).
  • Always follow proper lifting practices as outlined in the “Chassis-Lifting Guidelines” section, when handling the chassis.

Attaching the Rear Rack-Mount Brackets

This section explains how to attach the rear rack-mount brackets to the chassis. Before installing the chassis in the rack, you must install the rack-mount brackets on each side of the chassis. The forward rack-mount brackets are already installed on the Cisco ASR 1013 chassis when it arrives at your site.

The parts and tools required for installing the rack-mount brackets and cable-management brackets are listed in the “Tools and Equipment” section.


NoteThe cable-management brackets are installed on the chassis after you install the chassis rack-mount brackets and mount the chassis in the rack. The cable-management brackets are installed on the chassis after you install the chassis rack-mount brackets and mount the chassis in the rack.


If you are rack-mounting the chassis using the rear rack-mount brackets, then this type of installation provides for the chassis being recessed in the rack.

To install the rear rack-mount brackets on the Cisco ASR 1013 Router, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Locate the threaded holes on the rear side of the chassis. Make certain that you hold the rear t rack-mount bracket with the ear and holes facing outward and towards the rear of the chassis (see Figure 10-4, callout number 4).

Figure 10-4 Location of the Rear Rack-Mount Brackets on the Cisco ASR 1013 Router

 

Step 2 Position the rear rack-mount bracket top hole with the chassis second top hole from the back.

Step 3 Insert and tighten the screws on one side.

Step 4 After the bracket is secured to the side of the chassis, slide the two remaining components into the side rack-mount bracket.

Step 5 Repeat Step 1 through Step 3 on the other side of the chassis. Use all the screws to secure the rear rack-mount brackets to the chassis.


 

This completes the steps for attaching the rear rack-mount brackets to the Cisco ASR 1013 Router.

Rack-Mounting the Cisco ASR 1013 Router

The Cisco ASR 1013 Router comes installed with front forward rack-mount brackets. The rear rack-mount brackets are optional and are shipped in the accessory kit along with a set of front rack-mount brackets. The chassis rack-mounting flanges must be secured directly to the chassis before you lift it into the rack.

This section includes the following topics:

Verifying Rack Dimensions

Before you install the chassis, measure the space between the vertical mounting flanges (rails) on your equipment rack to verify that the rack conforms to the measurements shown in Figure 10-5.

Figure 10-5 Verifying Equipment Rack Dimensions

 


Step 1 Mark and measure the distance between two holes on the left and right mounting rails.

The distance should measure 18.31 inches ± 0.06 inches (46.5 cm ± 0.15 cm).


Note Measure for pairs of holes near the bottom, middle and top of the equipment rack to ensure that the rack posts are parallel.


Step 2 Measure the space between the inner edges of the left front and right front mounting flanges on the equipment rack.

The space must be at least 17.7 inches (45 cm) to accommodate the chassis which is 17.25 inches (43.8 cm) wide and fits between the mounting posts on the rack.


 

Installing the Cisco ASR 1013 Router in a Rack

To mount the chassis in an equipment rack, you must secure the rack-mount brackets to two posts or mounting strips in the rack using the screws provided. Because the rack-mount brackets support the weight of the entire chassis, be sure to use all screws to fasten the two rack-mount brackets to the rack posts. You can install the Cisco ASR 1013 chassis in an equipment rack using the forward rack-mount brackets or rear rack-mount brackets.

You can perform one of the following procedures to install the chassis in a rack:

Installing the Chassis Using the Forward Rack-Mount Brackets


Caution Before you mount the ASR 1013 Router in a rack, make certain you read which rack-mount bracket ear holes to use when positioning the chassis in the rack. As a result of using the designated ear holes on the rack-mount bracket, the cable-management bracket installation will be made easier. For cable-management installation instructions, see the “Attaching the Cable-Management Bracket” section.

Determine where in the rack you want the chassis to be mounted. If you are mounting more than one chassis in the rack, then start from the bottom up or the center of the rack. Figure 10-6 shows the brackets attached to the chassis. Depending on the bracket holes you use, the chassis may protrude in the rack.


NoteThe forward rack-mount brackets on the Cisco ASR 1013 Router arrive installed on the chassis and a spare set is included in the accessory kit. However, if you want to install a forward rack-mount bracket on the chassis, then see the instructions in this section.

Warning To prevent bodily injury when mounting or servicing this unit in a rack, you must take special precautions to ensure that the system remains stable. The following guidelines are provided to ensure your safety:
-This unit should be mounted at the bottom of the rack if it is the only unit in the rack.
-When mounting this unit in a partially filled rack, load the rack from the bottom to the top with the heaviest component at the bottom of the rack.
-If the rack is provided with stabilizing devices, install the stabilizers before mounting or servicing the unit in the rack. Statement 1006


We recommend that you allow at least 1 or 2 inches (2.54 or 5.08 cm) of vertical clearance between the router and any equipment directly above and below it.

Using Forward Rack-Mount Brackets

To install the chassis in the rack using the forward rack-mount brackets, perform the following steps:


Step 1 On the chassis, ensure that all screw fasteners on the installed components are securely tightened.

Step 2 Make sure that your path to the rack is unobstructed. If the rack is on wheels, ensure that the brakes are engaged or that the rack is otherwise stabilized. See the next sections on the types of racks you can use to install the chassis.

Step 3 (Optional) Install a shelf in the rack to support the Cisco ASR 1013 Router. If you use a shelf, this will help support the chassis while you secure it to the rack.

Step 4 With two people, lift the chassis into position between the rack posts.

Step 5 Align the mounting bracket holes with the rack post holes and attach the chassis to the rack.


Note If you are using a shelf then raise the chassis to the level of the shelf. Let the bottom of the chassis rest on the brackets, but continue to support the chassis.


Step 6 Position the chassis until the rack-mounting flanges are flush against the mounting rails on the rack.

Step 7 Hold the chassis in position against the mounting rails and follow these steps:

a. Insert the bottom screw into the third hole up from the bottom of the rack-mount ear and use a hand-held screwdriver to tighten the screw to the rack rail


Tip In the next step, insert the top screw diagonally from the bottom screw that you just attached.This helps with keeping the chassis in place.


b. Insert the top screw into the third hole down from the top of the rack-mount ear and tighten the screw to the rack rail.

c. Insert a screw in the middle of the rack-mount bracket on both sides of the chassis.

d. Repeat these steps for the other side of the chassis.


Note As a result of using the specified rack-mount bracket ear holes, the cable-management bracket can be easily attached to the rack-mount bracket after the chassis is installed in the rack.


Step 8 Tighten all screws on each side to secure the chassis to the equipment rack.


 

Using Rear Rack-Mount Brackets

To install the chassis in the rack using the rear rack-mount brackets, perform the following steps:


Step 1 On the chassis, ensure that all screw fasteners on the installed components are securely tightened.

Step 2 Make sure that your path to the rack is unobstructed. If the rack is on wheels, ensure that the brakes are engaged or that the rack is otherwise stabilized. See the next sections on the types of racks you can use to install the chassis.

NoteInner clearance (the width between the inner sides of the two posts or rails) must be at least 19 inches (48.26cm). The height of the chassis is 10.45 inches (26.543 cm). Airflow through the chassis is from front to back. Inner clearance (the width between the inner sides of the two posts or rails) must be at least 19 inches (48.26cm). The height of the chassis is 10.45 inches (26.543 cm). Airflow through the chassis is from front to back.



Caution If you are using a two-post rack secure the rack to the floor surface to prevent tipping and avoid bodily injury and component damage.

To install the Cisco ASR 1013 chassis on a two-post equipment rack, with the forward rack-mount brackets, follow these steps:


Step 1 Position the chassis so the front is closest to you and lift it carefully into the rack. To prevent injury, avoid any sudden twists or moves.

Step 2 Slide the chassis into the rack, pushing it back until the brackets meet the mounting strips or posts on both sides of the rack.

Step 3 Keeping the brackets flush against the posts or mounting strips, align the holes in the brackets with the holes on the rack or mounting strip.

Step 4 For each bracket, insert and tighten two screws to the rack on both sides.


Note Use the third hole up from the bottom of the rack-mount bracket and the third hole down from the top of the rack-mount bracket. See Figure 10-9 for the position and location of the ear holes on the rack-mount bracket.



 

This completes the procedure for installing the chassis on a two-post rack. Proceed to the “Attaching a Chassis Ground Connection” section to continue the installation.

Four-Post Rack Installation

The Cisco ASR 1013 Router can be flush-mounted in a 19-inch equipment rack using the rack-mounting kit provided with your system. The Cisco ASR 1013 Router can be mounted into the rack using two recommended methods:

  • Installing the chassis in an existing rack with equipment.
  • Installing an empty chassis in a rack with no equipment installed.

Note Because the Cisco ASR 1013 chassis is very heavy, it is recommended that the chassis be installed at the bottom of the rack if you are planning to install more than one Cisco ASR 1013 chassis in the same rack.


Figure 10-8 shows the Cisco ASR 1013 Router installed on a four-post rack.

NoteMake sure the rack is stabilized. Make sure the rack is stabilized.



Step 1 (Optional) Install a shelf in the rack to support the Cisco ASR 1013 Router. If you are using a shelf then raise the chassis to the level of the shelf. Let the bottom of the chassis rest on the brackets, but continue to support the chassis.Using two people, lift the chassis into the rack using the side handles and grasping underneath the power supply bays.

Step 2 Position the chassis until the rack-mounting flanges are flush against the mounting rails on the rack.


NoteUse the third hole up from the bottom of the rack-mount bracket and the third hole down from the top of the rack-mount bracket. See Use the third hole up from the bottom of the rack-mount bracket and the third hole down from the top of the rack-mount bracket. See Figure 10-9 for position and location of the ear holes on the rack-mount bracket.


Step 3 Hold the chassis in position against the mounting rails while the second person finger-tightens a screw to the rack rails on each side of the chassis.

Step 4 Finger-tighten 4 more screws to the rack rails on each side of the chassis.

Step 5 Tighten all screws on each side to secure the chassis to the equipment rack.

Step 6 Use a level to verify that the tops of the two brackets are level, or use a measuring tape to verify that both brackets are the same distance from the top of the rack rails.


 

This completes the procedure for installing the chassis in the rack. Proceed to the “Attaching the Cable-Management Bracket” section to continue the installation.

Attaching the Cable-Management Bracket

The cable-management brackets mount to each rack-mount bracket on the chassis to provide cable-management to both sides of the chassis (parallel with card orientation). These brackets are screw mounted to the rack-mount brackets to allow easy installation and removal of cables.

The cable-management brackets for the Cisco ASR 1013 are used in four places on the chassis. Each section contain four independent cable-management “U” type feature hooks with two screws each as shown in Figure 10-9. For Cisco ASR 1000 SIPs, these brackets work in tandem with shared port adapter product feature cable-management device to allow installation and removal of adjacent cards without the need to remove cables.


NoteMake certain that the cable-management bracket “U” type feature is facing upwards when you attach it to the chassis. Make certain that the cable-management bracket “U” type feature is facing upwards when you attach it to the chassis.


Follow these steps to attach two cable-management brackets to each side of the Cisco ASR 1013 Router in the rack:


Step 1 Align the cable-management bracket to the rack-mount bracket on the top of each side of the Cisco ASR 1013 Router. The cable-management bracket aligns to the top hole of the chassis rack-mount bracket.

Step 2 Using a Phillips screwdriver, insert the screw through cable-management bracket and into the chassis rack-mount and tighten the screw.


Note Use the package of screws that came with your chassis containing eight screws.


Step 3 Using the bottom rack-mount ear hole on each side of the chassis, insert the screw through cable-management bracket and into the chassis rack-mount)

This completes the procedure for installing the cable-management brackets on the chassis.

Attaching a Chassis Ground Connection

Connecting the Cisco ASR 1013 Router chassis to ground is required for all DC powered installations and any AC powered installation where compliance with Telcordia grounding requirements is necessary.


Caution The dual-lug chassis stud must be installed, the SIP and SPA must be fully inserted and screwed in and earthed to prevent a potential hazard in a telecom line.

Have the recommended tools and supplies available before you begin this procedure.


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


Before you connect power or turn on power to your chassis, you must provide an adequate chassis ground (earth) connection for the chassis. A chassis ground connector is provided on each Cisco ASR 1013 Router. There is a ground stud on the rear bottom of the chassis as shown in Figure 10-10.

Recommended Tools and Supplies

The following tools, equipment, and supplies necessary to connect the system ground to the chassis:

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Dual-lug chassis ground component
  • Grounding wire

Attach the Chassis Ground

Use the following procedure to attach the grounding lug to the chassis ground connector on your chassis:


Step 1 Use the wire stripper to strip one end of the AWG #6 wire approximately 0.75 inches (19.05 mm).

Step 2 Insert the AWG #6 wire into the wire receptacle on the grounding lug.

Step 3 Use the crimping tool to carefully crimp the wire receptacle around the wire; this step is required to ensure a proper mechanical connection.

Step 4 Attach the grounding lug with the wire so that the grounding wire does not overlap the power supply.

Step 5 Locate the chassis ground connector on the bottom rear of the Cisco ASR 1013 chassis.

Figure 10-10 shows how to attach the ground lug on the Cisco ASR 1013 Router.

Step 6 Insert the two screws through the holes in the grounding lug as shown in Figure 10-10.

Step 7 Use the Number 2 Phillips screwdriver to carefully tighten the screws until the grounding lug is held firmly to the chassis. Do not overtighten the screws.

Step 8 Connect the opposite end of the grounding wire to the appropriate grounding point at your site to ensure an adequate chassis ground.


 

This completes the procedure for attaching a chassis ground connection. Go to the following cabling sections for information on attaching cables.

Connecting the Shared Port Adapter Cables

The instructions for connecting the cables for the shared port adapter installed in the Cisco ASR 1013 Router are contained in the respective configuration documents for each port adapter. For example, if you are connecting the optical fiber cables for the PA-POS-OC3 port adapter, see PA-POS-OC3 Port Adapter Installation and Configuration at the following location:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/interfaces_modules/port_adapters/install_upgrade/pos/pa-pos-oc3_install_config/paposoc3.html

Shared port adapter documents are also available on the Cisco Documentation DVD.

Connecting the Console and Auxiliary Port Cables

The Cisco ASR 1013 Router has a DCE-mode console port for connecting a console terminal and a DTE-mode auxiliary port for connecting a modem or other DCE device (such as another router) to your chassis.

In a fully redundant chassis, each Cisco ASR1000-RP2 is separately connected to each FP and I/O card slot over separate point-to-point connections of the system interconnect over the midplane. The selection of the active RP2s is made separately from the selection of the active embedded services processor.

Figure 10-11 and Figure 10-12 show the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor faceplate.

NoteBoth the console and the auxiliary ports are asynchronous serial ports; any devices connected to these ports must be capable of asynchronous transmission. (Asynchronous is the most common type of serial device; for example, most modems are asynchronous devices.) Both the console and the auxiliary ports are asynchronous serial ports; any devices connected to these ports must be capable of asynchronous transmission. (Asynchronous is the most common type of serial device; for example, most modems are asynchronous devices.)


The Cisco ASR 1013 Router uses RJ-45 ports for both the auxiliary port and the console port.

For console and auxiliary port pinouts for the RJ-45 connector, see the “Cisco ASR 1000-RP1 Pinout Specifications” section. Both ports are configured as asynchronous serial ports.


Step 1 Before connecting a terminal to the console port, configure the terminal to match the chassis console port as follows: 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bits (9600 8N1).

Step 2 After you establish normal router operation, you can disconnect the terminal.


 

Connecting the Ethernet Management Port

When using the Fast Ethernet Management port (Figure 10-12, callout 4) in the default mode (speed-auto and duplex-auto) the port operates in auto-MDI/MDI-X mode. The port automatically provides the correct signal connectivity through the Auto-MDI/MDI-X feature. The port automatically senses a crossover or straight-through cable and adapts to it.

However, when the Fast Ethernet Management port is configured to a fixed speed (10 or 100 Mbps) through command-line interface (CLI) commands, the port is forced to MDI mode.

When in a fixed-speed configuration and MDI mode:

  • Use a crossover cable to connect to an MDI port
  • Use a straight-through cable to connect to an MDI-X port

Cisco ASR 1013 Router Power Supply Overview

This section provides information about the Cisco ASR 1013 power supply input requirements and power cable options.

The DC power supply for the Cisco ASR 1013, ASR 1006, ASR 1004, and ASR 1002 routers operate at individual specifications. Table 10-2 shows the common input ranges and circuit breaker requirements.

For example, the Cisco ASR 1002 Router DC power supply, with 16 Amp input rating must use an AWG #12 gauge wire for a 20 A circuit breaker and an AWG #10 gauge wire for a 30 A circuit breaker.

Power Cords Supported by the Cisco ASR 1013 Router

The following power cords are supported by the Cisco ASR 1013 Router:

  • CAB-AC20A-90L-IN—20 A AC right-angle power cord—International
  • CAB-4000W-US1—Power Cord, 250 VAC 20 A, Right Angle C19, NEMA 6-20 Plug, US
  • CAB-US520-C19-US—NEMA 5-15 to IEC-C19 14ft US

The Cisco ASR 1013 Router modular chassis supports redundant power entry modules (PEMs). At least one PEM in each 1+1 redundant power supply zone must be functioning to power the zone and both zones must be functional. In the event of a single fan failure, the remaining fans are sufficient to cool the entire chassis although fan speed may have to be increased.

The Cisco ASR 1013 Router system is configured in a dual zone 1+1 power supply configuration. For ASR 1013 router power consumption specifications, see the “Cisco ASR 1013 Router Specifications” section.

The following items list the maximum input and output of the system power consumption for the two power zones in the Cisco ASR 1013 Router:

  • Maximum input (DC): 4,200W
  • Maximum input (AC – High Line): 4,000 W
  • Maximum output (DC and AC – High Line): 3,390 W

NoteAt least one power supply in each of the two power supply zones must be powered on before the software boots up. This prevents the route processor from detecting a power supply failure in a zone that is not being used to power the active route processor. If you plan to connect the four power supplies to two independent circuits for redundancy, you must ensure that a power supply from each power supply zone is connected to each circuit. PS0 and PS1 are in power supply zone 0, and PS2 and PS3 are in power supply zone 1. In this scenario, for example, PS0 and PS2 can be connected to one circuit and PS1 and PS3 can be connected to the other circuit. Alternatively, PS0 and PS3 can be connected to one circuit and PS1 and PS2 can be connected to the other circuit. At least one power supply in each of the two power supply zones must be powered on before the software boots up. This prevents the route processor from detecting a power supply failure in a zone that is not being used to power the active route processor. If you plan to connect the four power supplies to two independent circuits for redundancy, you must ensure that a power supply from each power supply zone is connected to each circuit. PS0 and PS1 are in power supply zone 0, and PS2 and PS3 are in power supply zone 1.

Connecting AC Input Power to Cisco ASR 1013 Router

Follow these steps to connect an AC-input power supply to the Cisco 1013 chassis:


Step 1 At the rear of the chassis, check that the power switch on the power supply is in the Standby position.

Step 2 Plug the power cable into the inlet.


Note For additional AC power cable strain relief, secure the cable to the power supply handle by inserting a nylon cable tie through the hole in the handle and around the cable.

Before you begin to install the DC power supply into the Cisco ASR 1013 Router, 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. Typically, green or green/yellow is used for ground (GND), black is used for –48 V on negative (–) terminal and red is used for RTN on the positive (+) terminal. Make certain the lead color coding you choose for the DC input power supply matches lead color coding used at the DC power source.
  • For DC input power cables, select the appropriate wire gauge based on the National Electrical Code (NEC) and local codes for 40-amp service at nominal DC input voltage (–48/–60 VDC). Three pairs of cable leads, source DC (–) and source DC return (+), are required for each power distribution unit (PDU). These cables are available from any commercial cable vendor. All input power cables for the chassis should have the same wire gauge and cable lengths should match within 10 percent of deviation.

Each DC input power cable is terminated at the PDU by a cable lug. The cable lugs must be dual-hole, and have a straight tongue. They must be able to fit over 1/4-inch terminal studs at 0.625-inch (15.88-mm) centers.


Note DC input power cables must be connected to the PDU terminal studs in the proper positive (+) and negative (–) polarity. In some cases, the DC cable leads are labeled, which is a relatively safe indication of the polarity. However, you must verify the polarity by measuring the voltage between the DC cable leads. When making the measurement, the positive (+) lead and the negative (–) lead must always match the (+) and (–) labels on the power distribution unit.


  • A ground cable is required for each DC PDU. We recommend that you use at least 6-AWG multistrand copper wire. This wire is not available from Cisco Systems; it is available from any commercial cable vendor.

The ground wire cable lug should be dual-hole (as shown in Figure 10-15) and able to fit over M6 terminal studs at 0.625 inch (15.88mm) centers. Recommended lug terminal wire size Panduit part number:

LCD8-14A-L for 8AWG wire size

LCD6-14A-L for 6AWG wire size

Figure 10-15 DC Input Power Cable Lug

 


Note To avoid hazardous conditions, all components in the area where DC input power is accessible must be properly insulated. Therefore, before installing the DC cable lugs, be sure to insulate the lugs according to the manufacturer’s instructions.



Warning When you install the unit, the ground connection must always be made first and disconnected last. Statement 1046


To connect the DC power supply, follow these steps:


Step 1 Make certain that the chassis grounding is connected before you begin installing the DC power supply

Step 2 Locate the stud (see Figure 10-16, callout 6) on the DC power supply for the GND connection which must be connected first and follow these steps:

a. Using the grounding lug, replace the washers and Kepnut screw in the following order.

Flat washer

Step 3 Attach the other end of the cable to the site’s ground connection.

Step 4 Remove the plastic cover from the terminal block.


Caution Before you continue to install the terminal block ground wires, stop and perform Step 5. To prevent any contact with metal lead on the ground wire and the plastic cover.

Step 5 You must wrap the positive and negative lead cables with sleeving. Take each lead wire and cover the area from the lug to the wire with heavy shrink sleeving (see Figure 10-17).

Step 6 For easier cable-management, insert the negative lead cable first. Replace the ground lug with cable in the following order:

a. Flat Washer

b. Ground lug with negative wire

c. Kepnut screw

Step 7 Tighten the Kepnut screw to recommended torque of 18 in-lbs minimum to 22 in-lbs maximum for the positive stud and wire.


NoteSecure the wires coming in from the terminal block so that they cannot be disturbed by casual contact. Secure the wires coming in from the terminal block so that they cannot be disturbed by casual contact.


Step 8 Use tie wraps to secure the wires, so that the wires are not pulled from the terminal block by casual contact. Ti-wrap studs are located below the power supply terminal block (see Figure 10-18).

Step 9 Replace the terminal block plastic cover and tighten the screw. The plastic cover is slotted and keyed to fit correctly over the terminal block.

Step 10 Remove the tape from the circuit-breaker switch handle and move the circuit-breaker handle to the on position.

Step 11 Switch the circuit breaker switch to the On (|) position.


 

This completes the procedure for connecting the DC power supply in the Cisco ASR 1013 Router.

Connecting a Terminal to the Cisco ASR 1000 Series RP Console Port

The Cisco ASR 1013 route processor has an asynchronous serial (EIA/TIA-232) RJ-45 console port labeled CON on its front panel as shown in Figure 10-18, callout 5. You can connect this port to most types of video terminals through use of the console cable kit that is included with your Cisco ASR 1013 Router. The console cable kit contains:

  • One RJ-45 to RJ-45 crossover cable
  • One RJ-45 to DB-25 (female) adapter
  • One RJ-45 to DB-9 (female) adapter

A crossover cable reverses pin connections from one end to the other. In other words, it connects pin 1 (at one end) to pin 8 (at the other end), pin 2 to pin 7, pin 3 to pin 6, and so on. You can identify a crossover cable by comparing the two modular ends of the cable. Hold the cable ends in your hand, side-by-side, with the tabs at the back. Ensure that the wire connected to the outside (left) pin of the left plug (pin 1) is the same color as the wire connected to the outside (right) pin of the right plug (pin 8).

Use the following procedure to connect a video terminal to the console port on a route processor.


NoteEach Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor must have a console port connection (typically to a terminal server) if you are running a redundant configuration in the chassis. Each Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor must have a console port connection (typically to a terminal server) if you are running a redundant configuration in the chassis.


Users using the console port to access the router are automatically directed to the IOS command-line interface, by default.

If a user is trying to access the router through the console port and sends a break signal (a break signal can be sent by entering Ctrl-C or Ctrl-Shift-6, or by entering the send break command at the Telnet prompt) before connecting to the IOS command-line interface, the user is directed into diagnostic mode by default if the non-RPIOS sub-packages can be accessed.

These settings can be changed by configuring a transport map for the console port and applying that transport map to the console interface.

Figure 10-18 shows the Cisco ASR 1000 Series route processor console port connectors.

Step 1 Connect one end of the RJ-45 cables to the serial RJ-45 port (CON) on the Cisco ASR1000-RP2 route processor.

Step 2 Run the cable up and through the cable-management bracket and connect the other end of the RJ-45 cable to the RJ-45 adapter,

Step 3 Connect the adapter to your video terminal to complete the cable connection.

Step 4 Power on your video terminal.

Step 5 Configure your video terminal to match the following default console port settings: 9600 baud, 8 data bits, No parity generation or checking, 1 stop bit, and No flow control.

Step 6 Go to the “Connecting the System Cables” section to continue the installation.


 

Connecting the System Cables

Keep the following guidelines in mind when connecting external cables to the Cisco ASR 1013 Router:

  • To reduce the chance of interference, avoid crossing high-power lines with any interface cables.
  • Verify all cabling limitations (particularly distance) before powering on the system.

Auxiliary Connection

This asynchronous EIA/TIA-232 serial port (AUX) is used to connect a modem to the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor 1 for remote administrative access. Use the following procedure to connect the Cisco ASR 1013 Router to a modem.


Step 1 Connect one end of the modem cable to the RJ-45 port on the primary Cisco ASR 1000 Series Route Processor 1, labeled AUX.

Step 2 Run the cable up and through the cable-management bracket U feature device as shown in Figure 10-18, callout 6 and connect the other end of the cable to your modem.
