Safety Warnings

This section includes the basic installation caution and warning statements. Translations of the warning statements appear in the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information for the Cisco eXpandable Power System 2200 document at Cisco.com. Read this section before you start the installation procedure.


Warning Before working on equipment that is connected to power lines, remove jewelry (including rings, necklaces, and watches). Metal objects will heat up when connected to power and ground and can cause serious burns or weld the metal object to the terminals. Statement 43

Warning Do not stack the chassis on any other equipment. If the chassis falls, it can cause severe bodily injury and equipment damage. Statement 48

Warning Do not reach into a vacant slot or chassis while you install or remove a module or a fan. Exposed circuitry could constitute an energy hazard. Statement 206

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


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



Warning This unit is intended for installation in restricted access areas. A restricted access area can be accessed only through the use of a special tool, lock and key, or other means of security. Statement 1017

Warning The plug-socket combination must be accessible at all times, because it serves as the main disconnecting device. Statement 1019

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

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

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

Warning To prevent the system from overheating, do not operate it in an area that exceeds the maximum recommended ambient temperature of: 113°F (45°C) Statement 1047

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

Warning To prevent airflow restriction, allow clearance around the ventilation openings to be at least:
3 inches (7.6 cm) Statement 1076

Installation Guidelines

When deciding where to place the XPS, be sure to observe these guidelines:

Operating environment is within the ranges listed in "Technical Specifications."

Airflow around the XPS and through the vents is unrestricted.

Clearance to the front and rear panel is such that:

Front-panel indicators can be easily read.

Access to ports is sufficient for unrestricted cabling.

AC power cord can reach from the AC power outlet to the power supply modules on the XPS 2200 rear panel.

Cabling is away from sources of electrical noise, such as radios, power lines, and fluorescent lighting fixtures. Make sure the cabling is safely away from other devices that might damage the cables.

To provide enough distance for cabling, place switches using the XPS close to the XPS. The maximum XPS cable length is 1.5 meters.

If only one power supply is installed in the XPS, the spare power supply insert that ships with the XPS is installed in the empty power supply slot.

Stacking Guidelines

For rack-mounted switch stacks connected to the XPS , we recommended this sequence:

Install the XPS at the bottom of the stack. If needed, allow one RU space between the XPS and the first switch above to provide room for cabling.

Connect the needed XPS cables to the XPS.

Rack-mount the switches. If you have the 1100-W power supply module, rack-mount the switch before you install the power supply module.

Connect the XPS cable to the first switch above the XPS.

Connect the XPS cable to the second switch above the XPS.

Repeat until all devices are connected.

Tools and Equipment

You need these tools:

Phillips screwdriver

Number-2 Phillips head ratcheting screwdriver that exerts up to 15 pound-force inches (lbf-in.) or 240 ounce-force inches (ozf-in.) of pressure

Installing the XPS

Installing the Brackets

To install the XPS in a 19-inch rack, follow the instructions in this section.

To install the XPS in a 23-inch or 24-inch rack, you need an optional bracket kit (part number C3KX-RACK-KIT=) not included with the XPS.

Figure 2-1 shows how to attach a bracket to one side of the XPS for installation into a 19-inch rack.

Mounting the XPS in a Rack

After you attach the brackets to the XPS, use the four supplied number-12 or number-10 Phillips machine screws to attach the brackets to the rack (Figure 2-2).


Note If you are installing the XPS in a rack with a switch stack, install the XPS at the bottom of the rack. If needed, allow one RU space between the XPS and the switch above to provide room for cabling.

Cabling Options

Connecting the Cables

Cabling Options


Note All cable connectors are keyed and color-coded, as are the connections on the switches.

Types of XPS cables:

The StackPower cable shown in Figure 2-3 connects a Catalyst 3750-X switch to an XPS or to another 3750-X switch in a power stack.


Note This cable cannot be used with the Catalyst 3560-X switch.

The ends of the StackPower cable are color coded yellow and green. To use the StackPower cable to connect a Catalyst 3750-X switch and an XPS:

Connect the yellow cable end to the XPS power port.

Connect the green cable end to the XPS port on the Catalyst 3750-X switch.

The XPS cable shown in Figure 2-4 connects a Catalyst 3750-X or 3560-X switch to an XPS.

The ends of the XPS cable are color coded with red and blue-green. To use the XPS cable to connect a Catalyst 3750-X or Catalyst 3560-X switch and an XPS:

Connect the red cable end to the XPS power port.

Connect the blue-green cable end to the XPS port on the Catalyst 3750-X or Catalyst 3560-X switch.

Both cable types are available in two lengths.

Connecting the Cables


Warning Take care when connecting units to the supply circuit so that wiring is not overloaded. Statement 1018

Follow these steps to connect the cables:


Step 1 Connect one end of the XPS cable to an XPS power port (Figure 2-5).

Figure 2-5 Connecting the Cable to the XPS Power Port

Step 2 Connect the other end of the XPS cable to the XPS port on the switch (Figure 2-6).

Figure 2-6 Connecting the Cable to the Switch

Step 3 Using a ratcheting torque screwdriver, torque each screw to 5 in-lbf. (80 ozf-in.).

To ensure proper operation, be sure that you completely seat the connector and that you securely tighten the screws.

Step 4 Repeat Step 1 through Step 3 for each switch that the XPS supports. Figure 2-7 shows a nine-switch stack connected to the XPS.

Step 5 The LEDs for the connected devices should be green. If the LEDs for the connected devices are not green, see Chapter 4 "Troubleshooting."



Note To power off the XPS 2200, disconnect the power from the XPS, and disconnect all power port cables.
