Cabling the Switch
4.1 Grounding the Switch
After mounting the switch into the rack, connect the switch to the data center ground. Figure 4-1 displays the location of the grounding pads located on the rear panel of the switches.
Important! Grounding wires and grounding lugs (M4 x 0.7) are not supplied. Wire size should meet local and national installation requirements. Commercially available 12 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.

4.2 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.

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.
Step 1 Stranded copper wiring is required.
Commercially available 4 to 6 AWG wire is recommended for installations in the U.S.
Wire size should meet local and national installation requirements.
Grounding wires and grounding lugs are not supplied.
Strip the wires to the appropriate length for the lugs.
The wires connecting the DC power supply to the power source must meet the following requirements:
DC Input Wire Size: 4 – 6 AWG (21.2 mm2 to 13.3 mm2).
Primary Ground Wire Size: 4 – 6 AWG (21.2 mm2 to 13.3 mm2) per power supply.
The conductors are copper.

Step 2 Use agency-approved compression (pressure) lugs for wiring terminations with a single 5/16" mounting hole. Two-hole lugs should have 1/4" mounting holes on 5/8" centers.
Step 3 Slip on heat-shrink tubing on the wire ends before assembling the lugs on to the wire.
The lugs must be crimped with the proper tool.
The tubing should extend over the lug’s barrel and the wire's insulator.
Step 4 Shrink the tubing with a heat gun.
4.2.2.2 Connecting the PWR-1611-DC Power Supply
The PWR-1611-DC power supply connects to a circuit that provides -48 V to -60 V and 39 A. Ensure the wires connecting the DC power supply to the power source meet the following:
DC Input Wire Size: AWG 6 (13.3 mm2) or larger as appropriate
Safety Ground Wire Size: AWG 6 (13.3 mm2) or larger as appropriate
Wire Terminal (Lug): 2-hole lug, 6-8 AWG, #8 (4 mm) screw
Over-current protection: 40 A.
Important! Ensure power is removed from DC circuits before performing any installation actions. Locate circuit breakers or fuses on DC power lines servicing the circuits. Turn off the power line circuits or remove the fuses.

Assurez-vous de pouvoir retirer des circuits en courant continu avant d’effectuer toute action d’installation.Localiser les disjoncteurs ou fusibles sur les lignes électriques DC entretien des circuits. Mettez hors tension le circuit ligne ou retirer les fusibles.
Figure 4-5 displays the exploded and assembled views of the DC power supply with the connection adapter. The adapter is connected to the power supply using two captive fasteners as shown.

Step 2 Remove the terminal cover to expose the connectors on the adapter.
Step 3 Attach the appropriate lugs to the source DC wires.
Use DC cables with either insulated crimp-on spade lugs or insulated crimp-on ring connectors.
Important! Wire size must comply with local and national requirements and electrical codes. Use only copper wire.

Calibre doit respecter les exigences locales et nationales et les codes de l’électricité. Utiliser seulement du fil de cuivre.
Step 4 Connect the DC-input wires to the adapter in this order:

2. -48V source DC cable to the negative -48V terminal on the left side of the adapter.
3. Battery Return source DC cable to the Battery Return terminal on the left side of the adapter.
4. Torque the screws to 2.7 N·m / 24.0 in·lbs.
Important! Apply the ground connection first during installation and remove last when removing power.
