  • Disconnect all power before doing the following:

    • Installing or removing a chassis

    • Working near power supplies

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.
  • 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, determine 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.

Caution Use the Cisco RPS (model PWR600-AC-RPS) only to power the external device.

Seul le système d'alimentation redondant Cisco (RPS modèle PWR600-AC-RPS) doit servir à alimenter le dispositif externe.

Das externe Gerät darf nur mit einer redundanten Stromversorgung von Cisco, Modell PWR600-AC-RPS, betrieben werden.




Para alimentar el dispositivo externo, usar exclusivamente el sistema de alimentación redundante (redundant power system = RPS) Cisco, modelo PWR600-AC-RPS.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. It occurs when electronic printed circuit cards are improperly handled and can result in complete or intermittent failures. Always follow ESD prevention procedures when removing and replacing cards. 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 an unpainted surface of the chassis frame to safely channel unwanted ESD voltages to ground. To properly guard against ESD damage and shocks, the wrist strap and cord must operate effectively. If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching the metal part of the chassis.

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

Required Tools and Equipment

This kit includes the following items:

  • Cisco RPS adapter plate, shown in Figure 1

  • DC power rating label


Figure 1: Cisco RPS Adapter Plate for the Cisco 2500 Series


To install the Cisco RPS adapter plate, you will also need the following tools and equipment (which are not included):

  • Cisco 2500 series router

  • Medium-size Phillips screwdriver

  • ESD-preventive wrist strap

  • Antistatic bag (optional)

Removing the Cover

You must remove the chassis cover to access the internal power supply. When opening the chassis, refer to Parts A and B in Figure 2.

Warning Before opening the chassis, disconnect the telephone-network cables to avoid contact with telephone-network voltages.
Warning
Do not work on the system or connect or disconnect cables during periods of lightning activity.

Take these steps to remove the chassis cover:


Step 1   Power OFF the router.

Step 2   Attach your ESD-preventive wrist strap.

Step 3   Disconnect all cables from the rear panel of the router.

Warning Do not touch the power supply when the power cord is connected. For systems with a power switch, line voltages are present within the power supply even when the power switch is OFF and the power cord is connected. For systems without a power switch, line voltages are present within the power supply when the power cord is connected.

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.

Step 4   Turn the unit upside down so that the top of the chassis is resting on a flat surface, and the front of the chassis is facing toward you. (See Figure 2, Part A.)

Step 5   Remove the single screw located on the bottom of the chassis (on the side closest to you). Note that the chassis is comprised of two sections: top and bottom.

Step 6   If required, insert a medium-size flat-blade screwdriver into the slots shown in Figure 2, Part A, and rotate the blade so that the top and bottom sections separate slightly.

Step 7   Holding the chassis with both hands, position it as shown in Figure 2, Part B.

Step 8   Pull the top section away from the bottom section. (See Figure 2, Part B.) The fit is very snug, so it may be necessary to pry the chassis sections apart at one end and then the other until they separate.

Removing AC and DC Power Supplies

This section describes how to remove an AC or DC power supply. Although an AC power supply is shown in the illustrations that follow, the procedure is the same for removing both AC and DC power supplies.

Take the following steps to remove a power supply:


Step 1   Remove the screw located between the power switch and power connector. (See Figure 3.) This screw secures the power supply to the chassis. Set this screw aside for reuse when installing the Cisco RPS adapter plate.


Figure 3: Removing the Screw


Step 2   Disconnect the power connector from the system board. (See Figure 4.) Grasp the sides of the power connector and pull upward while gently rocking the connector side to side.

Caution To avoid damaging the connector, do not pull on the connector wires. When disconnecting the power connector, grasp the base of the connector, not the connector wires.

Figure 4: Disconnecting the Power Connector


Step 3   Push the loosened power supply backward and lift it out of the chassis. (See Figure 5.)


Figure 5: Removing the Power Supply


Step 4   Place the removed screw and power supply in an antistatic bag.

Installing the Cisco RPS Adapter Plate

Take the following steps to install the Cisco RPS adapter plate:


Step 1   Align the Cisco RPS adapter plate with the chassis cutouts for the power switch and power connector.

Step 2   Install the screw that was removed from the power supply into the screw hole between the power switch and power connector. (See Figure 6.)


Figure 6: Securing the Adapter Plate to the Chassis


Step 3   Connect the power connector to the system board. (See Figure 7.) Ensure that the little tab is at the left side of the power connector. The power connector is keyed so that it cannot be connected to the system board incorrectly.

Step 1   Position the two chassis sections, as shown in Figure 9.

Step 2   Referring to Figure 9, press the two chassis sections together and ensure the following:

  • The top section fits into the rear of the bottom section. (See A in Figure 9.)

  • The bottom section fits into the front of the top section. (See B in Figure 9.)

  • Each side of the top and bottom sections fits together. (See C in Figure 9.)

Caution It may be necessary to pry the chassis sections apart at one end and then the other until they separate. Be careful not to bend the edges of the chassis.

Figure 9: Replacing the Chassis Cover


Step 3   When the two sections fit together snugly, turn the chassis so that the bottom is facing up, with the front panel toward you.

Step 4   Replace the cover screw.

Step 5   Reinstall the chassis on the wall, rack, desktop, or table.

Step 6   Reconnect all cables.

Step 7   Remove your ESD-preventive wrist strap.
