If you bought a Cisco 2960 X model, do you understand how to install or replace an AC power supply, especially for Catalyst 2960 XR switches? What you need to focus on while installing the AC power supply into a 2960 XR series switch? In this article, we will share some basic tips and steps to install or replace an AC power supply in a 2960 XR switch.
Directly off the bat, you ought to understand that the switch works with several unique power supply modules. You can use two AC modules, or one module and a blank cover. The Cisco Catalyst 2960 XR-48FPD-I and 2960XR-48FPS-I simply support the PWR-C2-1025WAC power supply. You can't use the PWR-C2-250WAC and PWR-C2-640WAC power supplies in these switches.
The 250-W and 640-W AC power supply modules are auto-ranging units that help input voltages someplace in the range of 100 and 240 VAC. The 1025-W power supply module is an auto-ranging unit that supports input voltages someplace in the range of 115 and 240 VAC. All power supply modules have internal fans. All switches ship with a blank cover in the ensuing power supply space.
The following are a few steps which you have to follow to expertly replace or install AC power supply in the Cisco 2960 series switches:
• Press the release latch at the right side of the power supply module and slide the power supply out
• Turn off the power from its source before replacing
• Remove the power cable from the power cord retainer
• Remove the power cable from the power connector
Remember: Do not leave the power supply space open for more than 90 seconds while the switch is in function. This unit may have more than one power supply connection. All connections must be expelled to de-empower the unit.
• Insert the new power supply into the power supply slot, and delicately drive it into space. When precisely implanted, the 250-W and 640-W power supplies (notwithstanding the power cord retainer) are flush with the switch rear board. The 1025-W power-supply module widens inches from the switch rear panel.
• (Optional) Make a circle in the power cord and string it through the power cord retainer.
• Connect the power cord to the power supply and an AC electrical plug. Turn on the power at the power source.
• Confirm that the power supply AC OK and PS OK LEDs are green.
• Repeat the means to install a subsequent power supply.
Remember: When you install the subsequent power supply LEDs on the power supply may flicker instantly.
• Try not to operate the switch with one power supply module empty slot. For proper chassis cooling, both module spaces must be populated, with either a power supply or a blank module.
• Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three critical capacities: they thwart exposure to unsafe voltages and flows inside the chassis; they contain electromagnetic interference (EMI) that may agitate other equipment; they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Make an effort not to operate the system except if all cards, faceplates, front covers, and back covers are set up.
• Just prepared and qualified faculty should be allowed to install, replace, or service this equipment.
• On the off chance that a Cisco external power supply isn't associated with the switch, install the provided connector cover on the back of the switch.
