BlackDiamond 110 VAC Power Supply Installation Note

Overview
This installation note describes the BlackDiamond 110 VAC Power Supplies. The BlackDiamond 6808 chassis accommodates two power supplies. There are three types of power supplies available: 110 VAC, 220 VAC, and -48 VDC. Both installed power supplies must be of the same type. This document describes 110 VAC power supply installation only. Caution: Service to BlackDiamond 6800 series power supplies should be performed by trained service personnel only. Before installing or removing any components of the system, or before carrying out any maintenance procedures, read the safety information provided in Appendix A of the BlackDiamond Hardware Installation Guide. These power supplies are fully fault tolerant and load-sharing. If one power supply fails, the other power supply will provide sufficient power to operate a fully loaded chassis. The specifications for the power supply are listed in Table 1. Table 1: BlackDiamond 110 VAC power supply specifications
Characteristic AC power supply input socket AC power source socket Input power Output power Specification IEC part number 320 C19 NEMA L5-20R 2700 W, 110 VAC, 25 A 2000 W

The BlackDiamond chassis power supply slot is designed for standard 5" x 8" footprint power supplies. Each power supply contains a cooling fan. Air enters from the front vents on the power supply and exits from the rear vents of the chassis, as illustrated in Figure 1. This airflow is independent of the airflow through the modules.

Figure 1: Airflow through the BlackDiamond chassis Caution: If a power supplys fans fail, immediately remove the power supply from the chassis. Because the power supply airflow is separate from the chassis airflow, as illustrated in Figure 1, heated air from the power supply will not be sufficiently vented if the power supply fans fail. The 110 VAC power supply has two IEC 320 C19 inputs on the front of the power supply. Both power cords must be connected for the power supply to operate properly. Caution: Each power cord must be connected to a dedicated 20 A 110 VAC outlet. This outlet cannot be shared by other devices.

Figure 2: Sliding the power supply into the chassis The front of the power supply has a handle with a cam lever mechanism for both insertion and removal of the power supply. The front panel also provides status LEDs. Table 2 describes the LED behavior on the 110 VAC power supplies. Table 2: 110 VAC Power Supply LEDs
LED AC In Color Green Amber Off DC Out Green Amber Off Indicates Powered using both inputs Powered using only one input, or input voltage is less than 90 V No input power All DC outputs are operational One or more DC outputs failed, or one AC input failed No power

Each power supply has 5 DC outputs that connect to the chassis backplane. These 5 outputs provide power for the entire chassis.

Installing the Power Supplies


To remove a power supply, follow these steps: 1 Remove the two AC power supply cords from the power supply and retention clips. 2 Unscrew the power supply using a #1 Phillips-head screwdriver. 3 Disengage the power supply by pushing down on the locking handle and rotating the handle out and down, as shown in Figure 3.

To install a power supply, follow these steps: 1 Ensure that the replacement power supply is right-side up, and the locking handle is open. 2 Slide the power supply into the bay. 3 Secure the power supply by rotating the locking handle up until it clicks in place. 4 Tighten the screws using a #1 Phillips-head screwdriver. 5 Attach the AC power cords. While hot-inserting a second power supply, ignore the LED behavior and status indication from both power supplies until the power supply is fully seated and secured. There will not be any interruption in the functionality of the system.
