Connecting the Cisco RPS
This chapter provides instructions on connecting your external device to the
Cisco RPS. The chapter is divided into the following major sections:
•
Power Considerations, page 4-1
•
Connecting Hubs, page 4-3
•
Connecting Switches, page 4-7
•
Connecting Routers and the Cisco MC3810 Concentrator, page 4-13
Power Considerations
Before connecting to external devices, read the power warnings below. We
recommend that you disconnect all power before beginning.
Note
If you want to connect an additional external device to a Cisco RPS that is already
powered up, you can do so without interrupting power to the Cisco RPS or any
other connected external devices. Be sure to connect your cable to the Cisco RPS
first and then to the external device. However, in a redundant-with-reboot
configuration, to ensure proper operation, you must power up the switch or hub
before powering up the Cisco RPS. Therefore, always connect the switch to AC
power before you connect it to the Cisco RPS. Failure to follow the proper
power-up sequence can result in incorrect LED displays.

Connecting the Cisco RPS
Power Considerations
Note
A catalyst switch might reload when changing from RPS power to internal power.
This can occur on any catalyst switch, except the 3560-E or 3750-E switch,
connected to one of the following: Redundant, Power Supplies, PWR
300-AC-RPS-NI, PWR-600-AC-RPS-NI, and RPS2300. To prevent unscheduled
downtime, the switch should be powered off during a maintenance window.
Warning
Attach only the Cisco RPS (model PWR600-AC-RPS) to the RPS receptacle. To
see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the
Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this
device.
Warning
Before performing any of the following procedures, ensure that power is
removed from the DC circuit. To ensure that all power is OFF, locate the circuit
breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit
breaker to the OFF position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in
the OFF position. To see translations of the warnings that appear in this
publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information
document that accompanied this device.
Warning
Before working on a system that has an on/off switch, turn OFF the power and
unplug the power cord. To see translations of the warnings that appear in this
publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information
document that accompanied this device.
Warning
This unit might have more than one power cord. To reduce the risk of electric
shock, disconnect the two power supply cords before servicing the unit. To see
translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the
Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this
device.

Connecting Hubs
This section provides illustrations and cabling information for connecting the
Cisco RPS to the following hubs:
Note
•
Cisco 1516M hub (HP 10BASE-T Hub-16M) (Figure 4-1)
•
FastHub 400 series hubs (Figure 4-2)
The Cisco RPS can also be used with the older FastHub 100, 200, and 300 series
hubs.
All hubs can use the one-to-one cable configuration for quasi-redundancy. The
FastHub 400 series also supports the option of connecting the AC power cord for
redundancy with reboot, although this configuration is not recommended. The use of
a Y-cable for full redundancy is not supported.
The HP 10BASE-T Hub-16M does not support redundancy with reboot and does not
support use of the Y-cable for full redundancy.
To connect hubs to the Cisco RPS, perform these steps:
Step 1
Disconnect the AC power cord on the hub.
Step 2
Connect one end of the one-to-one cable to the Cisco RPS connector on the hub
rear panel. (For connector locations, see Figure 4-1 and Figure 4-2.)
Step 3
Connect the other end of the cable to a Cisco RPS rear-panel connector as shown
in Figure 4-3.

Concentrator
This section provides illustrations and cabling information for connecting the
Cisco RPS to Cisco 2500 series and Cisco 2600 series routers; Cisco 3620, Cisco
3640, and Cisco 3725 routers; Cisco 4000 series routers and Cisco MC3810
multiservice concentrators. All these devices use:
•
One-to-one cable for quasi-redundancy
or
•
Note
Two-to-one Y-cable for full redundancy
If you did not order your router or concentrator with a Cisco RPS connector
installed, you must order a power adapter plate and must install it in place of your
existing power supply.
If you need to order a power adapter plate, see Table 3-1 on page 3-5, which lists
adapter plates and corresponding product order numbers. Contact
Cisco Customer Service at 800 553-6387 or 408 526-7209 for ordering
information. (See also the “Obtaining Documentation” section on page xviii.)
Device-specific instructions for installing the Cisco RPS adapter plate are shipped
with the plate and are also available on Cisco.com at http://www.cisco.com.
Note
Cisco IOS Software Release 11.2(7)P or later release is required when using the
Cisco RPS with Cisco 3620, Cisco 3640, or Cisco 3725 routers.
