Cabling the Switch
4.1 Grounding the Switch
After mounting the switch into the rack, connect the switch to the data center ground.
Important! Grounding wires and grounding lugs (M4 x 0.7) are not supplied. Wire size should meet local and national installation requirements. Commercially available 6 AWG wire is recommended for installations in the U.S

À la terre et de mise à la terre fils cosses (M4 x 0.7) ne sont pas fournis. Calibre des fils doit satisfaire des exigences de l’installation locale et nationale. Disponible dans le commerce 6 fils AWG est recommandé pour les installations aux États-Unis.
4.1.1 Models with Grounding Pads
Use the grounding pads ( Figure 4-1) to attach the grounding lug before connecting to the data center ground.

4.1.2 Models without Grounding Pads
For models that do not have grounding pads, use an adapter as shown for the DCS-7050SX3-96YC8 ( Figure 4-2). Assemble an adapter to attach to the chassis ( Grounding Adapter Assembly). Attach the grounding lug to the adapter, once it is attached to the chassis.
Note A representative 1 RU chassis is used for the illustrations to highlight the grounding adapter assembly and attachment.

4.1.3 Grounding Adapter Assembly
Use the following steps to assemble and attach a grounding assembly to the chassis before mounting it into the rack for models that require the grounding adapter. Figure 4-3 shows the exploded and assembled views.
Figure 4-3: Earth Grounding Adapter Assembly for models such as DCS-7050SX3-96YC8
Note The chassis is shown upside down in the following figure.
Step 1 Identify all the components to be assembled:
1x Grounding adapter
1x Grounding bracket
2x Flat-head screws (Phillips,M4 x 5.00 long, stainless steel)
2x Hex nuts (#10-32, Serrated Flange, stainless steel)
1x Grounding lug (Copper, 2-hole, 6 AWG, straight barrel)
Step 2 Insert the grounding adapter through the holes in the grounding bracket.
Step 3 Insert the ground lug on to the grounding adapter studs and fasten using the hex nuts to form the grounding assembly.
Step 4 With the chassis on its top on a flat surface, attach the grounding assembly to the chassis using the flat head screws.
Step 5 Turn the chassis over before mounting it into a rack and connecting cables.
4.2 Connecting Power Cables
Important! Installation of this equipment must comply with local and national electrical codes. If necessary, consult with the appropriate regulatory agencies and inspection authorities to ensure compliance.

Installation de cet équipement doit être conformes aux codes électriques locaux et nationaux. Si nécessaire, consulter les organismes de réglementation appropriés et des autorités de contrôle pour assurer la conformité.
The switch operates with two installed power supplies. At least one power supply must connect to a power source. Two circuits provide redundancy protection.
Appendix D displays the location of the power supplies on the rear panel of the switch.
Important! Read all installation instructions before connecting the system to the power source.

Lire toutes les instructions d'installation avant de brancher le système à la source d'alimentation.
Non-Redundant Configuration: Connect power to either of the two power supplies.
Redundant Power Supply Configuration: Connect power to both power supplies.
Power down the Switch: Remove all power cords and wires from the power supplies.
Important! This equipment must be grounded. Never defeat the ground conductor.

Cet équipement doit être mis à la terre. Ne jamais modifier le conducteur de terre.
Important! This unit requires overcurrent protection.

Cet appareil requiert une protection contre les surintensités.

The accessory kit provides two IEC-320 power cables for the supported power supply for the device.
4.2.2 DC Power Supplies
The following power supplies are supported.
 
PWR-500DC
PWR-2411-DC
 
PWR-1900DC
PWR-1011-DC
 
Figure 4-5 displays two supported DC power supplies.
Note Several PSUs support both forward and reverse airflow directions.
Figure 4-5: Supported DC power supplies
Important! A disconnect device must be provided as part of the installation .

Un dispositif de sectionnement doit être fourni dans le cadre de l'installation.
Important! Ensure power is removed from DC circuits before performing any installation actions. Locate the disconnect device, circuit breakers or fuses on DC power lines servicing the circuits.
Turn off the power line circuits or remove the fuses.

Pouvoir assurer qu'il est retiré de circuits DC avant d'effectuer des actions d'installation . Localiser les disjoncteurs ou des fusibles sur les lignes de courant continu desservant les circuits.
Coupez les circuits de lignes d'alimentation ou retirer les fusibles.
Important! Wire size must comply with local and national requirements and electrical codes.
Use only copper wire.

Le calibre du fil doit être conforme aux exigences locales et nationales et les codes électriques.
Utiliser du fil de cuivre.
Important! Apply ground connection to the switch first during installation and remove last when removing power.

Appliquer connexion à la terre à l'interrupteur premier lors de l'installation et de supprimer la dernière alimentation lors du débranchement.
4.2.2.1 Wire and Lug Preparation
Before performing any installation actions, ensure power is removed from DC circuits by turning off the power line servicing the circuits. Prepare the stranded wiring before you begin a DC power installation.
Note Stranded copper wiring is required and should meet local and national installation requirements. Wires and grounding lugs are not supplied.
Step 1 Attach an ESD grounding strap.
Step 2 Prepare the stranded copper wiring for the power supply to be used. Table 4-1 provides wiring, lug, and tightening torque information for the power supplies covered in this guide.

1. Unless otherwise noted, wire size applies to -48V, Battery return, and Protective earth wires.
2. Unless otherwise noted, twin #10 studs spaced for dual-hole lug with 5/8" hole spacing.
Step 3 Strip the wires to the appropriate length for the lugs to be used.
Step 4 Use agency-approved compression (pressure) lugs for wiring terminations.
Step 5 Slip on heat-shrink tubing on the wire ends before assembling the lugs on to the wire.
Step 6 Crimp the lugs with the proper tool, and ensure that the tubing extends over the barrel of the lugs and the insulation on the wires ( Figure 4-6).
