Power Supply

Jan 22, 2014

CloudBridge appliances are configured with a single power supply. For a CloudBridge 3000 appliance, you can order a second power supply.

The appliance ships with a standard power cord that plugs into the appliance’s power supply. The other end of the cord has a NEMA 5-15 plug on the other end for connecting to the power outlet on the rack or in the wall.

For power-supply specifications, see Common Hardware Components, which describes the various hardware components, hardware platforms and includes a table summarizing the hardware specifications.

Note: If you suspect that a power-supply fan is not working, see the description of your platform. On some platforms, what appears to be the fan does not turn, and the actual fan turns only when necessary.

Electrical Safety Precautions for Power Supply Replacement

  • Make sure that the appliance has a direct physical connection to earth ground during normal use. When installing or repairing an appliance, always connect the ground circuit first and disconnect it last.
  • Always unplug any appliance before performing repairs or upgrades.
  • Never touch a power supply when the power cord is plugged in. As long as the power cord is plugged in, line voltages are present in the power supply even if the power switch is turned off.

Replacing an AC Power Supply

A CloudBridge 2000 appliance can accommodate only one power supply, which is not field replaceable. A CloudBridge 3000 appliance has only one power supply, but you can order and install a second power supply.

Note: Shut down the appliance before replacing the power supply.
