Power Requirements

The Cisco WiSM module requires 164W for operation. Make sure that your chassis can provide this power.


Note All Catalyst 6500 chassis (except the Catalyst 6503) require the fan tray 2 module, which requires the 2500W power supply for proper operation. For planning purposes, be aware that the 2500W power supply requires a 20A input power circuit with a NEMA plug.


You can use the show power command to view power details for your installation, including the system power available and power statistics for installed power supplies and cards.

Software Requirements

Before you install the WiSM into the chassis, make sure that the module and the chassis meet the software requirements. Refer to the Release Notes for Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers and Lightweight Access Points at this URL:

Safety Overview

Safety warnings appear throughout this publication in procedures that, if performed incorrectly, may harm you. A warning symbol precedes each warning statement.

Warning


IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

This warning symbol means danger. You are in a situation that could cause bodily injury. Before you work on any equipment, be aware of the hazards involved with electrical circuitry and be familiar with standard practices for preventing accidents. Use the statement number provided at the end of each warning to locate its translation in the translated safety warnings that accompanied this device. Statement 1071

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS




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



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


Required Tools

These tools are required to install the WiSM in the Catalyst 6500 series switches or the Cisco 7600 series routers:

Number 2 Phillips screwdriver

Antistatic mat or antistatic foam

Your own electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap or the disposable ESD strap included with the system


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


Installing the WiSM

This section describes how to install the WiSM in the Catalyst 6500 series switches or the Cisco 7600 series routers.


Caution To prevent ESD damage, handle modules by the carrier edges only and wear grounding wrist straps.


Note Specific combinations of supervisor engines and modules may not be supported in your chassis. Refer to the release notes of the software version running on your system for specific information on modules and supervisor engine combinations that are not supported.


To install the WiSM in the chassis, follow these steps:


Step 1 Choose a slot for the WiSM.

Step 2 Verify that there is enough clearance to accommodate any interface equipment that you will connect directly to the WiSM ports. If possible, place modules between empty slots that contain only module filler plates.

Step 3 Verify that the captive installation screws are tightened on all modules installed in the chassis. This assures that the EMI gaskets on all modules are fully compressed in order to maximize the opening space for the new module or the replacement module.


Note If the captive installation screws are loose, the EMI gaskets on the installed modules will push adjacent modules toward the open slot, reducing the opening size and making it difficult to install the replacement module.


Step 4 Remove the module filler plate by removing the two Phillips pan-head screws from the filler plate. To remove a module, see the "Removing the WiSM" section.

Step 5 Fully open both ejector levers on the WiSM. (See Figure 2.)

Step 6 Depending on the orientation of the slots in the chassis (horizontal or vertical), perform one of the following two sets of substeps.

Horizontal slots

a. Position the WiSM in the slot. (See Figure 2.) Make sure that you align the sides of the module carrier with the slot guides on each side of the slot.

b. Carefully slide the WiSM into the slot until the EMI gasket along the top edge of the module makes contact with the module in the slot above it and both ejector levers have closed to approximately 45 degrees with respect to the module faceplate. (See Figure 3.)

c. Using the thumb and forefinger of each hand, grasp the two ejector levers and press down to create a small (0.040 inch [1 mm]) gap between the module's EMI gasket and the module above it. (See Figure 3.)


Caution Do not press down too hard on the levers. They will bend and be damaged.

d. While pressing down, simultaneously close the left and right ejector levers to fully seat the supervisor engine or module in the backplane connector. The ejector levers are fully closed when they are flush with the module faceplate. (See Figure 4.)


Note Failure to fully seat the module in the backplane connector can result in error messages.


e. Tighten the two captive installation screws on the WiSM.


Note Make sure the ejector levers are fully closed before tightening the captive installation screws.


f. Verify that the WiSM STATUS LED is lit. Check the STATUS LED periodically. If the STATUS LED changes from orange to green, the WiSM has successfully completed the boot process and is now online. If the STATUS LED remains orange or turns red, the WiSM has not successfully completed the boot process and may have encountered an error.

Figure 4 Ejector Lever Closure in a Horizontal Slot Chassis

Vertical slots

a. Position the supervisor engine or switching module in the slot. (See Figure 5.) Make sure that you align the sides of the switching-module carrier with the slot guides on the top and bottom of the slot.

b. Carefully slide the WiSM into the slot until the EMI gasket along the right edge of the module makes contact with the module in the slot adjacent to it and both ejector levers have closed to approximately 45 degrees with respect to the module faceplate. (See Figure 6.)

c. Using the thumb and forefinger of each hand, grasp the two ejector levers and exert a slight pressure to the left, deflecting the module approximately 0.04 inches (1 mm) to create a small gap between the module's EMI gasket and the module adjacent to it. (See Figure 6.)


Caution Do not exert too much pressure on the ejector levers. They will bend and be damaged.

d. While pressing on the ejector levers, simultaneously close them to fully seat the WiSM in the backplane connector. The ejector levers are fully closed when they are flush with the module faceplate. (See Figure 7.)

e. Tighten the two captive installation screws on the module.


Note Make sure that the ejector levers are fully closed before tightening the captive installation screws.


f. Verify that the WiSM STATUS LED is lit. Check the STATUS LED periodically. If the STATUS LED changes from orange to green, the WiSM has successfully completed the boot process and is now online. If the STATUS LED remains orange or turns red, the WiSM has not successfully completed the boot process and may have encountered an error.

Removing the WiSM

This section describes how to remove an existing WiSM from a chassis slot.


Caution Do not remove the Cisco WiSM from the chassis until the module has shut down completely and the STATUS LED is orange or off. You can damage the module if you remove it from the chassis before it completely shuts down.


Caution During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the card.

To remove a WiSM from the chassis, follow these steps:


Step 1 In configuration mode from the router prompt, enter the no power enable module mod command.


Note Shutdown may require several minutes.


Step 2 Verify that the WiSM is down. Do not remove the module from the switch until the STATUS LEDs are off or orange.

Step 3 Use a screwdriver to loosen the captive installation screws at the left and right sides of the module.

Step 4 Grasp the left and right ejector levers. Simultaneously, pull the left lever to the left and the right lever to the right to release the module from the backplane connector.

Step 5 As you pull the module out of the slot, place one hand under the carrier to support it. Avoid touching the module itself.

Step 6 Carefully pull the module straight out of the slot, keeping one hand under the carrier to guide it. Keep the module at a 90-degree orientation to the backplane (horizontal to the floor).

Step 7 Place the removed module on an antistatic mat or antistatic foam.


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


Step 8 If the slot is to remain empty, install a module filler plate to keep dust out of the chassis and to maintain proper airflow through the module compartment.
