Installing the Cisco RPS Adapter Plate in Cisco 2600 Series Routers


Product Number: ACS-2600RPS=

This document describes how to install an adapter plate in Cisco 2600 series routers for use with the Cisco Redundant Power System (RPS). The Cisco RPS provides power system redundancy to external devices (such as routers, switches, or hubs). The system includes two fully redundant AC input power modules and four DC output power modules for connection to external devices. The Cisco RPS supports quasi-redundant and fully redundant power source configurations. To use the Cisco RPS with Cisco 2600 series routers, you must remove the existing power supply and replace it with a Cisco RPS adapter plate.

This document includes the following sections:

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 be used correctly. 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 Cisco 2600 series Routers


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

  • Cisco 2600 series router
  • Medium-size Phillips screwdriver
  • ESD-preventive wrist strap
  • Antistatic bag (optional)
  • Wire cutters or scissors for cutting the cable tie-wraps (optional)

Removing the Cover

You must remove the chassis cover to access the internal power supply.


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.

Take these steps to remove the chassis cover:


Step 1   Power OFF the router.

Step 2   Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap.

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


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.

Step 4   Place the router so that the front panel is facing you. Remove the screws located on top of the cover near the front edge.

Step 5   Slide the cover away from you until the metal tabs on the side edges separate from the chassis bottom, as shown in Figure 2.


Figure 2   Removing the Cover


Step 6   Lift the front edge of the cover until it clears the front of the chassis, as shown in Figure 3.


Figure 3   Lifting the Cover


Step 7   Lift the cover until it is free from the chassis and then set it aside.

Removing the Power Supply

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

Take these steps to remove the power supply:


Step 1   Locate the six-pin connector on the system board near the front of the router, and disconnect it. (See Figure 4.)


Note If cable tie-wraps on the harness interfere with removing the connectors, cut the tie-wraps, being careful not to cut the power supply wires.



Figure 4   Locating the Connectors


Step 2   Remove the mounting screw that secures the power supply to the chassis. (See Figure 5.) Set aside this screw for later use.


Figure 5   Removing the Mounting Screw


Step 3   Slide the power supply forward slightly in the chassis. This disengages the built-in hooks that help secure the power supply to the chassis. (See Figure 6.)


Figure 6   Removing the Power Supply


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

Installing the Redundant Power Supply Adapter Plate

Take these steps to install the Cisco RPS Adapter Plate:


Step 1   Place the router so that the rear panel is facing you. (See Figure 7.)


Figure 7   Cisco 2600 Series Rear Panel (Cisco 2610 Shown)


Step 2   Attach the DC power rating label over the ratings on the rear panel of the router.
(See Figure 8.)


Figure 8   Attaching the DC Power Rating Label


Step 3   Align the Cisco RPS Adapter Plate with the chassis cutout for the power supply. Tilt the adapter plate slightly toward you at the top, and rock it up and into place, ensuring that the two small hooks at the top of the Adapter Plate engage the router chassis. (See Figure 9.)


Figure 9   Installing the Cisco RPS Adapter Plate


Step 4   Install the mounting screw that came with the Cisco RPS Adapter Plate into the screw hole. (See Figure 10.)


Figure 10   Installing the Mounting Screw


Step 5   Connect the six-pin connector to the system board. The connector is keyed so that it cannot be connected to the system board incorrectly. (See Figure 11.)

Step 6   Connect the 4-pin environmental status connector only if your router, with the connector connected, has been upgraded to the correct level of Cisco IOS software. Using any other level of Cisco IOS software can cause the router to crash. Cisco IOS Release 11.1(12)AA or later is compatible but will not show status from the RPS. Cisco IOS Release 11.2(7)P or later will provide RPS status information to the network.

Replacing the Cover

Take the following steps to replace the cover:


Step 1   Position the two chassis sections, as shown in Figure 2.

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

  • The top section fits into the rear of the bottom section. The bottom section fits into the front of the top section.
  • Each side of the top and bottom sections fits together.


    Caution   To fit the two sections together, it might be necessary to work them together at one end and then the other, working back and forth; however, use care to prevent bending of the chassis edges.

Step 3   When the two sections fit together snugly, slide the chassis top so until it fits into the front bezel.

Step 4   Replace the cover screws. Tighten the screws to no more than 8 or 9 inches/pound of torque.

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

Step 6   Reconnect all cables.
