Installing a Slide-in-Module

CAUTION: Wear a grounding device and observe electrostatic discharge precautions when installing the media converter slide-in-module into the single-slot chassis. Failure to observe this caution could result in damage to, and subsequent failure of, the slide-in-module media converter.

Note: The maximum power capacity for the chassis slot is 12 Watts.

Note: The CPSMC0100-210 chassis is rated as “Class B” only when Class B compliant slide-in-module media converters are installed. The chassis will drop to a “Class A“ rating whenever a Class A slide-in-module media converter is installed.

To install a slide-in-module into the single-slot chassis:

1.Refer to the user’s guide that comes with the slide-in-module to ensure that any switches or jumpers on the slide-in-module circuit board are set correctly for the site installation.

2.Carefully align the slide-in-module with the chassis installation guides and slide the module into the installation slot.

3.Ensure that the slide-in-module is firmly seated inside the chassis.

4.Push in and rotate the attached panel faster screw clockwise to secure the slide-in-module to the chassis.

Powering the Chassis

The single-slot chassis automatically powers on when connected to an AC outlet supplying 100-240 VAC. To power on the single-slot chassis:

1.Connect the female end of the power cord to the AC power connector on the front panel of the chassis.

2.Plug the male end of the power cord into the correct voltage AC rack or wall socket.

3.Verify that the chassis is powered by observing the illuminated LED power indicator light on the installed slide-in-module.

Grounding the Media Converter

The CPSMC0100-210 single-slot chassis comes equipped with grounding lugs located on the back panel. They require a grounding conductor wire terminated with a two-hole, compression-type, grounding connector. The grounding wire -- which must be a copper conductor -- is not included with the chassis and must be provided by the customer/installer.

The electrical conducting path from the single-slot chassis must:

Flow via the grounding lugs to the common bonding network (CBN) for telecom installations, or to an alternative approved grounding system (if required) for non-telecom installations.

Be of sufficiently low impedance to conduct fault currents likely to be imposed on the media converter, and

Enable proper operation of any over-current protection devices.

The conductor must be fastened to the grounding lugs with the enclosed antirotation star-washers and lug-nut fasteners. The applied torque required to the connector lug-nut fasteners is specified by the connector’s manufacturer.

To properly ground the CPSMC0100-210 single-slot chassis:

1.Obtain one (1) grounding conductor (12 AWG copper wire gauge or larger) with a two-hole, compression-type, grounding connector.

2.Attach the grounding conductor to the converter by placing the two-hole connector onto the grounding lugs and fasten with the enclosed lockwashers / lug-nuts at the proper torque (per the manufacturer’s specification).
