BlackDiamond 8800 Series Chassis.”
Overview of the BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches
The BlackDiamond switches are chassis-based, Ethernet service core switches designed for core
applications.
The features of these switches include:
●
Hot-swappable I/O modules that include Gigabit Ethernet copper ports (10/100/1000) and Gigabit
Ethernet fiber ports (SFP), or 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports (SFP+ or XFP)
●
Management Switch Fabric Modules (MSMs) that provide the active switching fabric and CPU
control subsystem
●
Redundant, load-sharing, hot-swappable power supplies
●
Field-replaceable, hot-swappable fan trays
●
Auto-negotiation for half-duplex or full-duplex operation on 10/100/1000 Mbps ports
●
Load sharing on multiple ports
The BlackDiamond 8800 series switches include two chassis models:
●
BlackDiamond 8806 chassis, with slots for installing one or two management modules and up to five
I/O modules
●
BlackDiamond 8810 chassis, with slots for installing one or two management modules and up to
nine I/O modules
Three series of modules are available for the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches:
●
8500 series
Entry-level modules for BlackDiamond switches
●
8800 series
Provides high port density and scalability for mid-sized networks
●
8900 series
Provides greater port density and increased backplane bandwidth for large networks
BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
13
About the BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches
The specific capabilities of the switch are determined by the module series installed in the chassis. For
more information about individual I/O modules and management modules (MSMs), see Chapter 3.
For more information about configuring a BlackDiamond switch, see the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide
and the ExtremeXOS Command Reference Guide.
Full-Duplex Support
Extreme Networks switches provide full-duplex support for all ports. Full-duplex support means that
frames can be transmitted and received simultaneously, effectively doubling the bandwidth available on
a link. Most ports on an Extreme Networks switch will auto-negotiate duplex operation in the default
configuration. Gigabit Ethernet fiber ports and 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports operate only in full-duplex
mode in accordance with technical standards.
Management Ports
Each BlackDiamond management switch fabric module (MSM) has a 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet
management port. This port allows you to communicate directly with the central processing unit (CPU)
of the switch. You can plug an Ethernet cable directly from your laptop into the management port for
direct access into the switch. This access allows you to view and locally manage the switch
configurations.
External Compact Flash Memory Card
All MSMs in the BlackDiamond 8800 series include a compact flash slot next to the console port. This
slot accepts a compact flash memory card, which can be used to download a new version of
ExtremeXOS and for other functions, including capturing debug information and core dump files. See
the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide for more information regarding the use of the external compact flash
memory card.
The external compact flash slot supports third-party compact flash cards.
NOTE
You must use an industrial-grade compact flash card in the external compact flash slot of the MSM.

BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
CAUTION
Do not attempt to combine modules from the BlackDiamond 8800 series and BlackDiamond 12800 series product
lines. When a BlackDiamond 8800 series switch is running, ExtremeXOS software will not recognize an installed
BlackDiamond 12800 series module.
Management Switch Modules (MSM)
The following MSMs are available for the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches:
●
8500-MSM24
●
8800 series MSMs
●
■
MSM-G8X
■
MSM-48
■
MSM-48c
8900-MSM128
The MSMs provide the active switching fabric and CPU control subsystem for the switch. One MSM is
required for switch operation; however, adding a second MSM to the chassis increases reliability and
throughput.
A compact flash slot allows you to insert an external compact flash memory card. (See “External
Compact Flash Memory Card” on page 14 for more information about Extreme Networks-supported
compact flash cards.)
Redundant MSM Activity
The BlackDiamond 8800 series switches can run with a single MSM installed. When you install an
additional MSM, one MSM operates as the primary MSM and the other becomes the backup
(secondary) MSM. The primary MSM is responsible for upper-layer protocol processing and system
management functions. Packet handling is distributed among the CPUs of all installed MSMs.
When you save the switch configuration, it is saved to all MSMs.
Selection of the primary MSM occurs automatically. The following examples describe the selection
process:
●
When a switch boots with two MSMs installed, the MSM in the lower-numbered slot becomes the
primary MSM. In the BlackDiamond 8810 switch this is slot 5; in the BlackDiamond 8806 switch, this
is slot 3.
●
When a switch boots with a single MSM (regardless of the slot position), it is selected as the primary
MSM.
If a second MSM is added to the switch after it has been powered up, the added MSM becomes the
backup MSM. MSMs that operate as backup MSMs can be inserted and removed without disrupting
network services.
●
If you remove the primary MSM while the switch is operating, the backup MSM performs a soft
reset and then becomes the primary MSM.
For example, in a BlackDiamond 8810 switch with a primary MSM in slot 5 and a backup MSM in
slot 6, if you remove the primary MSM from slot 5, the backup MSM in slot 6 becomes the primary
MSM.

The BlackDiamond 8000 series MSMs have the following features on the front panel:
●
Console port—DB-9 serial port used to connect a terminal and perform local management.
●
Management port—A 10/100 Mbps Ethernet management port used to connect an Ethernet cable
directly from your laptop to the switch to view and locally manage the switch configurations. This
port can also be used to connect the system into a parallel management network for administration.
●
A button—Allows you to select the alternate BootROM image when you power on the module. To
use the alternate BootROM image, you must hold the A button while pressing the R button
simultaneously.
●
D button—Allows you to force a system dump that dumps the debug information into NVRAM.
This information is available on the next reboot. No core file is created.
●
R button—Allows you to reset the MSM without removing the module from the chassis.
●
Compact flash slot
In addition, the MSM-G8X has eight SFP data ports. These data ports operate the same as the ports on
the G24X I/O module. (See “G24X I/O Module” on page 28 for more information about these ports.)
The eight data ports are integrated into the MSM and managed by a separate I/O processor, which
retains control of the eight Ethernet ports on the MSM during a failover. The backup MSM can take
control of the ports.
BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
23
BlackDiamond 8000 Series Modules
The 8500-MSM24, MSM-48c and 8900-MSM128 modules have a slot for one of the following option
cards:
●
S-G8Xc—Adds eight 1-gigabit SFP data ports to the MSM. These data ports operate the same as the
ports on the G24Xc I/O module. (See “G24Xc I/O Module” on page 40 for more information.)
●
S-10G1Xc—Adds one 10-gigabit XFP data port to the MSM. This data port operates the same as the
ports on the 10G4Xc I/O module. (See “10G4Xc I/O Module” on page 38 for more information.)
Different MSM models have different memory and processing capacity. For details of feature support in
the MSMs, see the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide.
NOTE
See the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide and the ExtremeXOS Command Reference Guide for more information about
numbering conventions for the modules and ports, as well as configuration and display information.

I/O Modules
The following series of I/O modules are available for the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches:
●
BlackDiamond 8500 series I/O modules (see page 26)
●
BlackDiamond 8800 series I/O modules:
●
■
BlackDiamond 8800 original series I/O modules (see page 28)
■
BlackDiamond 8800 a-series I/O modules (see page 32)
■
BlackDiamond 8800 c-series I/O modules (see page 36)
■
BlackDiamond 8800 e-series I/O modules (see page 42)
BlackDiamond 8900 series I/O modules (see page 45)
No configuration information is stored on the I/O modules; all configuration information is stored on
the MSMs.
When a BlackDiamond 8800 series switch is powered on, the software generates a default configuration
for any slots that contain I/O modules. The default configuration allows the I/O module ports to
participate in the VLAN named default. The default configuration for the I/O module is not preserved
unless you explicitly save the configuration to NVRAM.
You can configure parameters of an I/O module after it is installed, or preconfigure a slot for a certain
type of module and configuration. The preconfigured information is applied to the module after it is
inserted. If you preconfigure a slot for a specific module type and then insert a different type of module,
the inserted module does not become operational because of the mismatch. If this situation occurs, the
show slot command shows the module state as mismatch.
NOTE
See the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide and the ExtremeXOS Command Reference Guide for feature-specific
information related to BlackDiamond 8000 series modules.
CAUTION
When BlackDiamond I/O modules from different series (8500 series; 8800 original series, a-series, c-series, and
e-series; or 8900 series) are installed in the same BlackDiamond 8800 series chassis, limitations on feature sets
may occur. See the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide and the ExtremeXOS Command Reference Guide for more
information about these limitations.

Do not install 8900 series I/O modules in any slot of a BlackDiamond 8810 chassis that has a
manufacturing part number of 800129-00 (revision 10 or earlier). (Most of these chassis models are
labeled Aspen instead of BlackDiamond.) To verify the part number and revision, use the show version
CLI command. This compatibility issue affects only I/O modules.
CAUTION
The backplane connectors do not seat properly if you try to insert an 8900 series I/O module into a chassis labeled
Aspen 8810 (manufacturing part number 800129-00, revision 10 or earlier). ExtremeXOS software will not allow an

Overview of BlackDiamond 8800 Series Power Supplies
The BlackDiamond 8800 series switches can be powered by either AC or DC power supplies (PSUs).
AC power supplies in the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches are fully fault tolerant and load-sharing in
an N+1 configuration. For a switch using DC power supplies in an N+N configuration, each group of
power supplies can provide A/B feed redundancy for the system. After the system is properly
configured, if one PSU fails, the others will provide sufficient power to operate a fully loaded switch.
The BlackDiamond power supply units are intended for use in specific BlackDiamond switches only.
Table 13 lists the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches and their compatible power supply units.

Power Supply Units for BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches
Extreme Networks 700/1200 W AC PSU
Figure 33 shows the Extreme Networks 700/1200 W AC UL-listed accessory power supply unit
(Model number 60020/PS 2336). The power supply bay in a BlackDiamond 8800 series switch can
accommodate up to six hot-swappable Extreme Networks 700/1200 W AC PSUs.
Figure 33: Extreme Networks 700/1200 W AC PSU
EX_015
The front panel on each 700/1200 W AC PSU provides a handle for insertion and removal of the unit.
Two cooling fans draw air in through the front vents on the PSU and exhaust the air through the rear
vents of the switch. Airflow through the PSU is independent from the airflow through the rest of the
switch.
The AC input connection is located on the switch directly below each installed power supply.
NOTE
In a BlackDiamond 8806 system, the Extreme Networks 700W/1200 W AC PSU can be used with an Extreme
Networks 600/900 W AC PSU in the same chassis.
Extreme Networks does not recommended using the 700/1200 W AC PSU with an Extreme Networks 1200W DC
PSU in the same BlackDiamond 8800 series switch.
WARNING!
Field operators must not attempt to open the 700/1200 W AC PSU enclosure for any reason; the PSU does not
contain user-serviceable parts. In the event of failure, return the defective 700/1200 W AC PSU to Extreme
Networks for repair or replacement.

The 700/1200 W AC PSU functions from 90 V to 264 V and 47 Hz to 63 Hz AC Input. Each PSU
provides 700 W to the system if the AC input is in the 110 V low-line output power range and 1200 W
to the system if the AC input is in the 220 V high-line output power range.
More installed PSUs are needed to support the load if the low-line power range is used to power the
switch. The software determines the maximum available power required for the switch and enables the
modules accordingly.
CAUTION
The 700/1200 W AC PSU does not have a switch for turning the unit on and off. Remove the plug from the
electrical outlet to disconnect power to the 700/1200 W AC PSU. Make sure that this connection is easily

Specifications
The 600/900 W AC PSU functions from 90 V to 264 V and 47 Hz to 63 Hz AC Input. Each PSU provides
600 W to the system if the AC input is in the 110 V low-line output power range and 900 W to the

More installed PSUs are needed to support the load if the low-line power range is used to power the
switch. The software determines the maximum available power required for the switch and enables the
modules accordingly.
Combining Different AC PSU Models
When 600/900 W AC PSUs and 700/1200 W AC PSUs are combined in the same BlackDiamond 8806
chassis and are powered on, all PSUs will be budgeted down to the lower powered 600/900 W AC
output values to avoid PSU shutdown due to over-current. ExtremeXOS optimizes total system power,
avoiding the possibility of over-current, by deciding whether to budget down PSUs with 220 V AC
inputs when PSUs with 110 V AC inputs are present, or to keep 110 V AC PSUs disabled.
CAUTION
Even though this process avoids the possibility of over-current, an I/O module may be powered off if a 600/900 W
AC PSU is added to a BlackDiamond 8806 system running in the following configuration:
●
The system is powered by three 700/1200 W AC PSUs at 220 V AC.
●
The system includes four or more PoE I/O modules with a PoE power requirement that falls between 2391 W
and 2438 W of inline power.
To avoid causing an I/O module to be powered off, do not add a 600/900 W AC PSU to an existing
BlackDiamond 8806 system running in the configuration listed above. Extreme Networks also
recommends that you avoid mixing 220 V AC and 110 V AC inputs when both 600/900 W and
700/1200 W PSUs are present in the same system. When a combination of 220 V AC and 110 V AC
inputs is applied, ExtremeXOS is designed to optimize total chassis power for each individual PSU type
but not for a mixture of PSU types.

BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
Wiring Closet Considerations
Be aware of the following recommendations for your wiring closet:
●
Be sure that your system is easily accessible for installation and service. See “Rack Specifications and
Recommendations” on page 70 for information.
●
Use appropriate AC or DC power, power distribution, and grounding for your specific installation.
●
Use a vinyl floor covering in your wiring closet. (Concrete floors accumulate dust, and carpets can
cause static electricity.)
●
Prevent unauthorized access to wiring closets by providing door locks. Install the equipment in a
secured, enclosed, and restricted access location, ensuring that only qualified service personnel have
access to the equipment.
●
Provide adequate overhead lighting for easy maintenance.
●
Be sure that each wiring closet has a suitable ground. All distribution racks and equipment installed
in the closet should be grounded.
●
Be sure that all system environmental requirements are met, such as ambient temperature and
humidity.
NOTE
Extreme Networks recommends that you consult an electrical contractor for commercial building and wiring
specifications.
Temperature
Extreme Networks equipment generates a significant amount of heat. It is essential that you provide a
temperature-controlled environment for both performance and safety.
Install the equipment only in a temperature- and humidity-controlled indoor area that is free of airborne
materials that can conduct electricity. Too much humidity can cause a fire. Too little humidity can
produce electrical shock and fire.
Follow these general thermal recommendations for your wiring closet:
●
Be sure that the ventilation in the wiring closet is adequate to maintain a temperature below 104° F
(40° C).
●
Install a reliable air conditioning and ventilation system.
●
Keep the ventilation in the wiring closet running during non-business hours; otherwise, the
equipment can overheat.
●
Maintain an ambient operating temperature of 32° to 104° F (0° to 40° C).
●
Maintain a storage temperature of -40° to 158° F (-40° to 70° C).
NOTE
As with all electrical equipment, Extreme Networks product lifetimes degrade with increased temperature. If
possible, temperatures should be kept at approximately 78° F (25° C) or lower.
BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
67
Site Preparation
Humidity
To maximize equipment life, keep operating humidity between 50% and 70% relative humidity (noncondensing) during typical operation. The equipment can operate between 10% and 95% relative
humidity (non-condensing) for short intervals.
Chassis Spacing Requirements
Extreme Networks recommends placing no more than three BlackDiamond chassis next to each other
because of to chassis-to-chassis heating. Use the following spacing guidelines when you install your
BlackDiamond 8800 series switch:
●
Leave a minimum of one empty 19-inch rack between two sets of three adjacent BlackDiamond
switches.
or
●
Place patch panels between two sets of three adjacent BlackDiamond switches. A patch panel does
not require any power and does not generate any heat.
NOTE
Up to five adjacent switches will continue to function without safety concerns. However, product lifetime may
degrade with continued exposure to high temperatures in close proximity, and long term reliability may be
compromised.
Chassis Airflow Requirements
To ensure proper airflow through a BlackDiamond switch, refer to the following recommendations
when you install the switch:
●
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches require a minimum of 1.5 inches (4 cm) around both the left and
right sides of the chassis from any cabinet wall or other obstruction for proper airflow.
●
Air temperature measured approximately 1 inch (2.5 cm) from the fan inlet should be less than
104 °F (40 °C).
In the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches, air moves through the power supplies independently of the
airflow through the modules, as shown in Figure 37.

Electrostatic Discharge
Your system must be protected from static electricity or electrostatic discharge (ESD). Take the following
measures to ensure optimum system performance:
●
Remove materials that can cause electrostatic generation (such as synthetic resins) from the wiring
closet. Check the appropriateness of floor mats and flooring.
●
Connect metal chassis, conduit, and other metals to ground using dedicated grounding lines.
●
Use electrostatically safe equipment and the ESD-preventive wrist strap that is provided with your
equipment. All switches have ESD-preventive wrist strap connectors and are shipped with an ESDpreventive wrist strap as shown in Figure 38.

Site Preparation
Rack Specifications and Recommendations
Racks should conform to conventional standards. In the United States, use EIA Standard RS-310C:
Racks, Panels, and Associated Equipment. In countries other than the United States, use IEC Standard
297. In addition, verify that your rack meets the basic mechanical, space, and earthquake requirements
that are described in this section.
Mechanical Recommendations for the Rack
Use equipment racks that meet the following mechanical recommendations:
●
Use an open style, 19-inch rack to facilitate easy maintenance and to provide proper ventilation.
●
Use a rack made of steel or aluminum.
●
The rack should use the universal mounting rail hole pattern that is identified in IEC Standard 297.
●
The rack should have designated earth grounding connections (typically on the base).
●
The rack must meet earthquake safety requirements equal to that of the installed chassis.
●
The mounting holes should be flush with the rails to accommodate the chassis.
●
The rack should support approximately 600 pounds (272 kilograms).
Protective Grounding for the Rack
Use a rack grounding kit and a ground conductor that is carried back to earth or to another suitable
building ground.
All Extreme Networks switches are designed with mounting brackets that provide solid metal-to-metal
connection to the rack. If you do not use equipment racks, you can attach wiring terminals directly to
the mounting brackets for appropriate grounding. Extreme Networks switches have grounding
terminals that are mounted on the back of the chassis.
At a minimum, follow these guidelines to ground equipment racks to the earth ground:
●
CAD weld appropriate wire terminals to building I-beams or earth ground rods.
●
Use the appropriate chassis grounding wire for your system, which is dependant upon the available
input current to the power supply.
■
For AC systems using a 20A breaker per PSU (SSI AC), the chassis ground can be as small as
14 AWG. The power cable ground should be the same size as the primary.
■
For DC systems using a 15A breaker per PSU (Summit X450a-48tDC switch), the chassis
ground can be as small as 14 AWG. The power cable ground should be the same size as the
primary.
■
For DC systems using a 40A breaker per PSU (SSI DC), the chassis ground can be as small as
10 AWG. The power cable ground should be the same size as the primary.
NOTE
For complete details on power supplies and power supply cords, refer to the following: Chapter 4, “Power Supply
Units for BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches,” and “Selecting Power Supply Cords” on page 172 in Appendix
A, “Safety Information.” Drill and tap wire terminals to equipment racks.
70
BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
●
Position the earth ground as close to the equipment rack as possible to maintain the shortest wiring
distance possible.
●
Use a ground impedance tester or micro-ohm meter to test the quality of earth ground connection at
the chassis. This will insure good grounding between the chassis, rack, and earth ground.
NOTE
Because building codes vary worldwide, Extreme Networks strongly recommends that you consult an electrical
contractor to ensure proper equipment grounding for your specific installation.
Space Requirements for the Rack
Provide enough space in front of and behind the switch so that you can service it easily. Allow a
minimum of 48 inches (122 cm) in front of the rack and 24 inches (61 cm) behind the rack. When using a
relay (two-post) rack, provide a minimum of 24 inches (61 cm) of space behind the mounted equipment.
Extra room on each side is optional.
Securing the Rack
The rack should be attached to the wiring closet floor with 3/8-inch (9.5 mm) lag screws or equivalent
hardware. The floor under the rack should be level within 3/16-inch (5 mm). Use a floor-leveling
cement compound if necessary or bolt the racks to the floor as shown in Figure 39.

Installing Cable
Consider the following recommendations when you connect cable to your network equipment:
●
Examine cable for cuts, bends, and nicks.
●
Support cable using a cable manager that is mounted above connectors to avoid unnecessary weight
on the cable bundles.
●
Use cable managers to route cable bundles to the left and right of the network equipment to
maximize accessibility to the connectors.
●
Provide enough slack, approximately 2 to 3 inches (5.08 to 7.62 cm), to provide proper strain relief as
shown in Figure 42.
●
Bundle cable using velcro straps to avoid injuring cables.
●
If you build your own cable, be sure that cable is properly crimped.
●
When installing a patch panel using twisted pair wiring, untwist no more than 1 inch (2.54 cm) of
the cable to avoid radio frequency (RF) interference.
●
Discharge the RJ-45 Ethernet cable before plugging it into a port on the switch.
●
Use plenum-rated cable when it is necessary for safety and fire rating requirements. Consult your
local building codes to determine when it is appropriate to use plenum-rated cable, or refer to IEC
standard 850.
●
Keep all ports and connectors free of dust.
CAUTION
Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable can build up ESD charges when being pulled into a new installation. Before
connecting any category 5 UTP cable to the switch, discharge ESD from the cable by plugging the RJ-45 connector
into a LAN Static Discharge device or use an equivalent method.

Fiber Optic Cable
Fiber optic cable must be handled carefully during installation. Every cable has a minimum bend
radius, for example, and fibers will be damaged if the cables are bent too sharply. It is also important
not to stretch the cable during installation. We recommend that the bend radius for fiber optic cable
equal 2 inches (5.08 cm) minimum for each 90 degree turn as shown in Figure 43.
NOTE
Kinks and sharp bends can destroy or impair the cable’s ability to convey light pulses accurately from one end of the
cable to the other. Use care in dressing the optical fiber cables: provide satisfactory strain relief to support the cable
and maintain an adequate bend radius at all cable turns, particularly where the cable connects to the I/O module.

Radio Frequency Interference
If you use UTP cabling in an installation, take precautions to avoid RF interference. RF interference can
cause degradation of signal quality, and, in an Ethernet network environment, can cause excessive
collisions, loss of link status, or other physical layer problems that can lead to poor performance or loss
of communication.
To prevent RF interference, avoid the following situations:
●
Attaching UTP cable to AC power cables
●
Routing UTP cable near antennas, such as an amateur radio antenna
●
Routing UTP cable near equipment that could exhibit RF interference, such as ARC welding
equipment
●
Routing UTP cable near electrical motors that contain coils
●
Routing UTP cable near air conditioner units
●
Routing UTP cable near electrical transformers
In areas or applications where these situations cannot be avoided, use fiber optic cabling or shielded
twisted pair cabling (STP).

Meeting Power Requirements
This section describes power requirements, including:
●
PoE Devices
●
Power Supply Requirements
●
AC Power Cord Requirements
●
Uninterruptible Power Supply Requirements
PoE Devices
When connecting power over Ethernet (PoE) devices to a PoE switch, all connections between the PoE
device and the switch must remain within the same building and must use a low-voltage power
distribution system per IEEE 802.3af.
Power Supply Requirements
Follow these recommendations when you plan power supply connections for your Extreme Networks
equipment:
●
Place the equipment in an area that accommodates the power consumption and component heat
dissipation specifications.
●
Be sure that your power supply meets the site DC power or AC power requirements of the network
equipment.
●
When you connect power to installed equipment, do not make this connection through an extension
cord or power strip.
●
If your switch includes more than one power supply, connect each power supply to different,
independent power sources.
If a power source fails, it will affect only the power supply to which it is connected. If all switch
power supplies are connected to a single power source, the entire switch is vulnerable to a power
source failure.
●
In regions that are susceptible to electrical storms, Extreme Networks recommends that you plug
your system into a surge suppressor.
For power specifications of the BlackDiamond power supplies, see Appendix B, “Technical
Specifications.”
WARNING!
The chassis does not have a switch for turning power to the unit on and off. For systems using an AC power supply,
power to the chassis is disconnected by removing the wall plug from the electrical outlet. For systems using a DC
SSI power supply, power to the chassis can be turned off by lifting the handle on the power supply or by deenergizing the circuit that feeds the power supply, which is usually accomplished by turning off a circuit breaker.
78
BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
AC Power Cord Requirements
AC power input cords are not provided with BlackDiamond power supplies. To purchase a power cord
for your product and for your specific country, contact your local Extreme Networks Channel Account
Manager or Sales Manager, or purchase a cord from your local supplier.
Make sure that the power cord you use is certified for the country of end use and suitable for the
device. Check your local electrical codes and regulatory agencies for power cable requirements.
The power cord must meet the requirements listed in “Selecting Power Supply Cords” on page 172.
NOTE
When using multiple power supplies, make sure that each AC power supply attaches to an independent power
source.
Uninterruptible Power Supply Requirements
An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a device that sits between a power supply (such as a wall
outlet) and a device (such as a switch) to prevent outages, sags, surges, and bad harmonics from
adversely affecting the performance of the device.
A UPS traditionally can perform the following functions:
●
Absorb relatively small power surges.
●
Smooth out noisy power sources.
●
Continue to provide power to equipment during line sags.
●
Provide power for some time after a blackout has occurred.
In addition, some UPS or UPS plus software combinations provide the following functions:
●
Automatically shut down equipment during long power outages.
●
Monitor and log power supply status.
●
Display the voltage (current draw) of the equipment.
●
Restart equipment after a long power outage.
●
Display the voltage currently on the line.
●
Provide alarms on certain error conditions.
●
Provide short circuit protection.
Selecting a UPS
To determine UPS requirements for your switch, answer these questions:
●
What are the amperage requirements?
●
What is the longest potential time period that the UPS would be required to supply backup power?
●
Where will the UPS be installed?
●
What is the maximum transition time that your installation will allow?
BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
79
Site Preparation
NOTE
Extreme Networks recommends that you use a UPS that provides online protection.
Calculating Volt-Amperage Requirements
To determine the minimum volt-amperage requirements for your UPS:
1 Locate the voltage and amperage requirements for each piece of equipment. These numbers are
usually located on a sticker on the back or bottom of your equipment.
2 Multiply the numbers together to get Volt-Amps (VA):
VA = Volts x Amperes
3 Add together the VA from all the pieces of equipment to find the total VA requirement.
To determine the minimum volt-amperage requirements for your UPS, we recommend that you add
30% to the total.
UPS Transition Time
Transition time is the time that is necessary for the UPS to transfer from utility power to full-load
battery power. For Extreme Networks products, a transition time of less than 20 milliseconds is required
for optimum performance.
Applicable Industry Standards
For more information, see the following ANSI/TIA/EIA standards:
●
ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A—discusses the six subsystems of a structured cabling system.
●
ANSI/TIA/EIA-569-A—discusses design considerations.

Installing an Extreme Networks 1200 W DC PSU on page 104
The chapter describes how to install and remove each power supply model used with the
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches.
Safety
Only trained service personnel should perform service to Extreme Networks switches and their
components. Trained service personnel have read all related installation manuals, have the technical
training and experience necessary to be aware of the hazards to which they are exposed in performing a
task, and are aware of measures to minimize the danger to themselves or other persons.
Before installing an Extreme Networks PSU into your network:
●
Read the latest installation and safety information provided in this chapter and in Appendix
A, “Safety Information.”
●
See Appendix A, “Safety Information” for additional information regarding regulatory compliance
certifications.
NOTE
For central DC power connections, the 1200 W DC PSU is intended to be installed only in restricted access
locations (dedicated equipment rooms, equipment closets, or the like) in accordance with Articles 110-16, 110-17,
and 110-18 of the National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA-70. All wiring methods involving the DC input cable assembly
must be performed according to the relevant articles of the National Electrical Code.
CAUTION
Building codes vary worldwide; therefore, Extreme Networks strongly recommends that you consult an electrical
contractor to ensure proper equipment grounding and power distribution for your specific installation.
WARNING!
Field operators must not attempt to open the PSU enclosure for any reason; the PSU does not contain
user-serviceable parts. In the event of failure, return the defective PSU to Extreme Networks for repair or
replacement.
BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
97
Installing Power Supply Units in the BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches
WARNING!
Extreme Networks AC PSUs do not have switches for turning the unit on and off. Remove the wall plug from the
electrical outlet to disconnect the power to an Extreme Networks AC PSU. Make sure that this connection is easily
accessible.
When the PSU is outside the chassis (not installed), do not plug the PSU into an electrical outlet. Plugging an
uninstalled AC PSU into an electrical outlet exposes you to a hazardous energy and is a potential fire hazard.
WARNING!
Extreme Networks DC PSUs do not have switches for turning the unit on and off. Make sure that the DC circuit is
de-energized before connecting or disconnecting the DC power cord at the DC power socket on an Extreme Networks
DC PSU.
PSU Compatibility
The BlackDiamond power supply units are intended for use in specific BlackDiamond switches.

BlackDiamond 8810
Extreme Networks does not recommended using the
600/900 W AC PSU or the 700/1200 W AC PSU in
combination with a 1200W DC PSU.
Combining Different AC PSU Models
When 600/900 W AC PSUs and 700/1200 W AC PSUs are combined in the same BlackDiamond 8806
chassis and are powered on, all PSUs will be budgeted down to the lower-powered 600/900 W AC
output values to avoid PSU shutdown due to over-current.
ExtremeXOS optimizes total system power, avoiding the possibility of over-current, by deciding
whether to budget down PSUs with 220 V AC inputs when PSUs with 110 V AC inputs are present, or
to keep 110 V AC PSUs disabled.
98
BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
CAUTION
Even though this process avoids the possibility of over-current, an I/O module may be powered off if a 600/900 W
AC PSU is added to a BlackDiamond 8806 system running in the following configuration:
●
The system is powered by three 700/1200 W AC PSUs at 220 V AC.
●
The system includes four or more PoE I/O modules with a PoE power requirement that falls between 2391 W
and 2438 W of inline power.
To avoid causing an I/O module to be powered off, do not add a 600/900 W AC PSU to an existing
BlackDiamond 8806 system running in the configuration listed above. Extreme Networks also
recommends that you avoid mixing 220 V AC and 110 V AC inputs when both 600/900 W and
700/1200 W PSUs are present in the same system. When a combination of 220 V AC and 110 V AC
inputs is applied, ExtremeXOS is designed to optimize total chassis power for each individual PSU type
but not for a mixture of PSU types.
NOTE
Extreme Networks does not recommended using the 1200 W DC PSU in combination with any Extreme Networks
AC PSU in the same BlackDiamond 8800 series system. Extreme Networks recommends that DC and AC PSU units
not be used together in the same BlackDiamond switch.
Minimum Software Requirements
The Extreme Networks PSUs have the following minimum software requirements:
●
600/900 W AC PSU
For the system to recognize a 600/900 W AC PSU, the MSM installed in your BlackDiamond 8806
switch requires ExtremeXOS version 11.6.1 (or later). In ExtremeXOS releases 11.3.4, 11.4.2, and
11.5.1, the 600/900 W AC PSU is disabled on all chassis. In ExtremeXOS releases earlier than those,
the software does not recognize the 600/900 W AC PSU and the PSU will not be budgeted properly,
possibly resulting in PSU shutdown and/or chassis reboot.
●
700/1200 W AC PSU
The 700/1200 W AC PSU is supported by all versions of ExtremeXOS software.
●
1200 W DC PSU
For the system to recognize the 1200 W DC PSU, the MSM in your BlackDiamond 8800 series switch
must be running ExtremeXOS version 11.3 or later.
Power Supply Cords for AC Power Supplies
The AC PSUs used with the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches can use either 110 V AC or 220 V AC
power supply cords. Table 19 shows the maximum DC power output allowed by these power cords
when used with each AC power supply.
Power supply cords are not shipped with the AC PSUs. To purchase an AC power cord, contact your
local Extreme Networks Channel Account Manager or Sales Manager, or purchase a cord from your
local supplier. The power cord must meet the requirements listed in “Selecting Power Supply Cords” on
page 172.

NOTE
The following slots will only operate an MSM:
●
Slot 5/A in the BlackDiamond 8810 chassis
●
Slot 3/A in the BlackDiamond 8806 chassis
MSMs reside in different slots depending on which BlackDiamond switch you operate:
●
If you are using only one MSM in the BlackDiamond 8806 switch, install that MSM in slot 3. If you
add a second MSM to increase reliability and throughput, install the second MSM in slot 4.
●
If you are using only one MSM in the BlackDiamond 8810 switch, install that MSM in slot 5. If you
add a second MSM to increase reliability and throughput, install the second MSM in slot 6.
Chassis and Slot Compatibility Issues for 8900 Series Modules
Slot 6/B in the BlackDiamond 8810 chassis and slot 4/B in the BlackDiamond 8806 chassis
accommodate either an MSM or an I/O module. However, when you use 8900 series modules, certain
combinations of model series and type are not supported (see Table 20).

Do not install 8900 series I/O modules in any slot of a BlackDiamond 8810 chassis that has a
manufacturing part number of 800129-00 (revision 10 or earlier). (Most of these chassis models are
labeled Aspen instead of BlackDiamond.) To verify the part number and revision, use the show version
CLI command. This compatibility issue affects only I/O modules.
CAUTION
The backplane connectors do not seat properly if you try to insert an 8900 series I/O module into a chassis labeled
Aspen 8810 (manufacturing part number 800129-00, revision 10 or earlier). ExtremeXOS software will not allow an
8900 series I/O module to become operational if it is inserted into a chassis labeled Aspen 8810.
Distinguishing an MSM from an I/O Module
One quick way to distinguish a BlackDiamond 8800 series MSM from an I/O module is by the color of
the release latch on each injector/ejector handle. Orange injector/ejector release latches indicate that the
110
BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
module is a BlackDiamond MSM, and green injector/ejector release latches indicate that the module is a
BlackDiamond I/O module (see Figure 67).
Figure 67: Colors on Injector/ejector Release Latches
I/O module

Installing a BlackDiamond 8000 Series Module
You need the following tools and equipment to install a BlackDiamond 8000 series I/O module or MSM:
●
ESD-preventive wrist strap
●
#2 Phillips screwdriver
●
Appropriate type of cable for any ports on the module
CAUTION
Although they appear physically similar, BlackDiamond 12800 series modules are not compatible with
BlackDiamond 8800 series hardware. Do not try to install a BlackDiamond 12800 series module in a BlackDiamond
8810 or 8806 chassis.
When you handle modules, optical devices, or other modular accessories, use an ESD-preventive wrist
strap to reduce the risk of electronic damage to the equipment. Transport PC boards only in electrostatic
packaging. Always place PC boards on a grounded surface before working on them.
To install a module in a BlackDiamond 8800 series switch:
1 Attach the ESD-preventive wrist strap to your bare wrist and connect the metal end to the ground
receptacle at the top left corner of the chassis.
2 Select a slot for the module. (See “Module Slot Assignments” on page 109.)
CAUTION
MSMs and I/O modules only fit properly into their designated slots. Forceful insertion into the wrong slot type
can damage the module.
3 Remove a blank front panel from the chassis slot, if applicable.
NOTE
Any unoccupied module slot in the chassis should have a blank faceplate installed to ensure satisfactory
protection from EMI and to maintain adequate airflow through the chassis.

CAUTION
There are two styles of ejector/injector handles on the BlackDiamond 8800 series modules. Pay careful attention to
the instructions in the next step.
8 Using a #2 Phillips screwdriver, lock the module into place in one of the following ways (Figure 70):
●
If the captive screw on each handle has a yellow band around the head of the screw, turn the
screw on each injector/ejector handle clockwise and completely down. When the screw is fully
tightened, the yellow band around the captive screw is completely hidden.
CAUTION
Be careful to avoid over-torquing and stripping the screw heads.
●
If the captive screw on each handle has a red line on the head (see Figure 71), turn each captive
screw one-quarter turn (90 degrees) clockwise. When the module is correctly locked, the red line
on the captive screw in each injector/ejector handle is in a vertical position.
CAUTION
Be sure to turn each captive screw only 90 degrees or one-quarter turn clockwise. Tightening the captive screws
beyond 90 degrees will damage the injector/ejector handles on the modules.

9 Store the module packaging for future use.
Leave the ESD-preventive wrist strap permanently connected to the chassis so that the strap is always
available when you need to handle ESD-sensitive components.
Connecting Network Interface Cables
Use the appropriate type of cable to connect the ports of your switch to another switch or router.
Working carefully, one port at a time:
1 Verify that you have identified the correct cable for the port.
2 Use an alcohol wipe or other appropriate cleaning agent to clean the cable connectors; make sure
they are free of dust, oil, and other contaminants.
3 If you are using optical fiber cable, align the transmit (Tx) and receive (Rx) connectors with the
correct corresponding connectors on the switch or the I/O module.
4 Press the cable connectors into their mating connectors on the switch or I/O module until the cable
connector is firmly seated.
5 Repeat steps 1 through 4 for the remaining cables on this or other switches or I/O modules.
6 Dress and secure the cable bundle to provide appropriate strain relief and protection against bends
and kinks.
Connecting and Disconnecting Cables on the 10G4Ca Module
The ports on the 10G4Ca I/O module use copper CX4 interface connectors. The cables that connect to
these ports include a latch that mechanically stabilizes the connection. You must be sure to correctly
engage the latch when you connect cables, and to correctly disengage the latch when you disconnect
cables.
To connect cables to the 10G4Ca module:
1 Make sure that the connector latch is pulled back to the unlatched position.
2 Align the connector with the module port and push it into place until the connector is flush with the
front panel of the module (Figure 72).
3 Evenly push the latch toward the module port to secure the connection (Figure 72). Make sure that
the latch engages equally on both sides.

Installing Modules and Establishing Initial Management Access
1 Align the cable connector with the port connector and firmly press the cable connector into place.
2 Use a small straight-tip screwdriver to align and tighten the retaining screw at each end of the cable
connector.
Installing a Backup MSM
If you install a backup MSM, use the synchronize command to replicate all saved images and
configurations from the primary MSM to the backup MSM.
You are not prompted to synchronize the images and the configurations from the primary to the
backup. If not synchronized, the backup uses its image and the primary configuration. This
image/configuration mismatch will likely cause the switch to operate differently after failover.
CAUTION
Depending on the size and complexity of your network, you should install and configure a backup MSM when
network disruption will be minimal. You may need to reboot your switch after you use the synchronize command.
Verifying the Module Installation
After you install a module, verify that it is working correctly by checking the LEDs on the front panel of
the module. Table 21 shows normal LED operation for correctly installed MSMs and I/O modules.
Use the command line interface (CLI) show slot <slot number> command to display slot-specific
information about the newly installed module.

Removing a BlackDiamond 8000 Series Module
CAUTION
BlackDiamond 8800, and 8900 series modules have two styles of ejector/injector levers. Pay careful attention to the
instructions in step 2.
This section describes how to remove modules from a BlackDiamond 8800 series switch. BlackDiamond
modules are hot-swappable. You do not need to power the system off to remove a module.
You need the following tools and equipment to remove a BlackDiamond 8500, 8800, or 8900 series
module:
●
ESD-preventive wrist strap
●
#2 Phillips screwdriver
●
Replacement module or blank faceplate if you are not replacing the module
To remove a BlackDiamond module:
1 Attach the ESD-preventive wrist strap to your bare wrist. If it is not already connected, connect the
metal end to the ground receptacle at the top left corner of the chassis.
2 Unlock the module in one of the following ways:
●
On a module without red lines on the screwheads, turn each captive screw counter-clockwise
(Figure 74). Verify that the yellow band around the captive screw head of each injector/ejector
handle is completely visible (Figure 74). This position ensures that the module is unlocked.
●
On a module with red lines on the screwheads, turn each captive screw counter-clockwise
one-quarter turn (90 degrees) (Figure 74). Verify that the red line on each captive screw is in a
horizontal position (Figure 75). This position ensures that the MSM or I/O module is unlocked.
CAUTION
Be sure to turn each captive screw only 90 degrees or one-quarter turn counter-clockwise. Loosening the captive
screws beyond 90 degrees will damage the injector/ejector handles on the module.

11 BlackDiamond Cable Management
This chapter includes the following sections:
●
About BlackDiamond Cable Management on page 145
●
Using the Cable Holders and Cable Clips on page 145
The BlackDiamond cable holders and cable clips provide a way to organize and contain masses of
cables connected to a BlackDiamond switch. This chapter describes how to install and use these cable
management accessories.
About BlackDiamond Cable Management
Interlocking cable holders and cable clips for the BlackDiamond switches provide free-standing, rigid
structural support for individual cables and cable bundles in front of the switch. You can use the cable
holders and cable clips individually or connect them together to manage multiple cable bundles.
The cable management accessories keep cables collected in one place, rather than allowing them to hang
freely. If you must remove a module from the chassis for replacement or repair, the cable clips and
holders maintain the cable arrangement in front of the chassis for ease of connection when you reinsert
the module.
Using the Cable Holders and Cable Clips
When you use the cable holders and the cable clips, Extreme Networks recommends the following:
●
Attach the cables to the holders by slipping the cable through the opening.
●
Connect the cable holders, if you need more than one. (Refer to “Connecting Cable Holders” on
page 146.)
●
If you need more than one cable clip for a bundle, connect the clips together before you route the
cables through the clips. (Refer to “Connecting Cable Clips” on page 147.)
●
To form a cable bundle, thread the cables through the clips.
Figure 104 shows the cable holders and clips being used to manage a group of cables.

Safety Information
Installing Power Supply Units
For the ratings and power requirements of each power supply unit, see Appendix B, “Technical
Specifications” or the data sheet for the power supply at http://www.extremenetworks.com.
WARNING!
Be sure that the requirements listed in this section are satisfied when installing all Extreme Networks power
supplies.
When you install power supplies:
●
Plug power supplies only into properly grounded electrical outlets to help prevent electrical shock
and comply with international safety standards.
●
Use only power cords that are certified for use within the country of use. Do not attempt to modify
AC power cords.
●
Make sure the wall outlet is installed near the equipment and is easily accessible for quick
disconnect.
●
Make sure the voltage and frequency of your power outlet match the system electrical ratings for the
equipment. The building and/or power source must provide overload protection.
●
Use a surge suppressor, line conditioner, or uninterruptible power supply to protect the system from
momentary increases or decreases in electrical power.
●
When inserting a hot-swappable power supply into the bay, do not use excessive force.
●
If multiple power supplies are used in a switch, connect each power supply to a different,
independent power source. If a single power source fails, it will affect only that power supply to
which it is connected. If all the power supplies on a single switch are connected to the same power
source, the entire switch is vulnerable to a power failure.
WARNING!
Extreme Networks DC PSUs do not have switches for turning the unit on and off. Make sure that the DC circuit is
de-energized before connecting or disconnecting the DC power cord at the DC power socket on the Extreme
Networks DC PSU.
Wiring the DC PSU DC power cord to your facility DC source voltage must be performed by a qualified, licensed
electrician.
Extreme Networks AC external power supplies do not have switches for turning the unit on and off. Remove the wall
plug from the electrical outlet to disconnect the power from an Extreme Networks AC external power supply. Make
sure that this connection is easily accessible.
Do not connect a power supply to an electrical outlet when the power supply is not installed in the chassis; doing so
would expose a hazardous energy and poses a potential shock and fire hazard.
Do not put your hand into an open power supply bay when a power supply is not present. Empty power supply bays
require a cover plate at all times.

BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
Maintenance Safety
When you perform maintenance procedures on Extreme Networks equipment, follow these
recommendations:
●
Use only original accessories or components approved for use with this system. Failure to follow
these instructions may damage the equipment or violate required safety and EMC regulations.
●
The chassis cover should only be removed by Extreme Networks personnel. This system contains no
customer serviceable components. Repairs to the system must be performed by an Extreme
Networks factory service technician.
●
In systems that have power-on buttons, the power-on button may not turn off all system power. To
remove power from the system, you must unplug all power cords from wall outlets. The power cord
is the disconnect device to the main power source.
●
Disconnect all power before removing the back panel of any Extreme Networks switch, unless
otherwise instructed by a product specific maintenance procedure.
●
Disconnect all power cords before working near power supplies, unless otherwise instructed by a
product-specific maintenance procedure.
●
When you handle modules, optic devices, power supplies, or other modular accessories put on an
ESD-preventive wrist strap to reduce the risk of electronic damage to the equipment. Connect the
other end of the strap to the ESD connector on the front of the chassis. Leave the ESD-preventive
wrist strap permanently attached to the chassis so that it is always available when you need to
handle ESD-sensitive components.
●
Install all cables in a manner that avoids strain. Use tie wraps or other strain relief devices.
●
Replace power cord immediately if it shows any signs of damage.
General Safety Precautions
Follow these guidelines:
●
Do not attempt to lift objects that you think are too heavy for you.
●
When you install equipment in a rack, load heavier devices in the lower half of the rack first to
avoid making the rack top-heavy.
●
Only use tools and equipment that are in perfect condition. Do not use equipment with visible
damage.
●
Route cables in a manner that prevents possible damage to the cables and avoids causing accidents,
such as tripping.

Safety Information
Cable Routing for LAN Systems
The BlackDiamond 8800 series switches meet the requirements for LAN system equipment. LAN
systems are designed for intra-building installations; that is, cable runs between devices must be in the
same building as the connected units.
This equipment can be connected between buildings if any one of the following conditions is true:
●
Cable runs between buildings are less than 140 feet long.
●
Cable runs between buildings are directly buried.
●
Cable runs between buildings are in an underground conduit, where a continuous metallic cable
shield or a continuous metallic conduit containing the cable is bonded to each building grounding
electrode system.
CAUTION
Failure to follow these requirements for cable routing conditions may expose the user to electrical shock and expose
the unit to errors or damage.
WARNING!
The intra-building ports of the equipment or sub-assembly are suitable for connection to intrabuilding or unexposed
wiring or cabling only. The intra-building port(s) of the equipment or sub-assembly MUST NOT be metallically
connected to interfaces that connect to the outside plant (OSP) or its wiring. These interfaces are designed for use
as intra-building interfaces only (Type 2 or Type 4 ports as described in GR-1089-CORE, Issue 4) and require
isolation from the exposed OSP cabling. The addition of Primary Protectors is not sufficient protection in order to
connect these interfaces metallically to OSP wiring.
PoE Devices
When connecting power over Ethernet (PoE) devices to a PoE switch, all connections between the PoE
device and the switch must remain inside the same building and use a low-voltage power distribution
system per IEEE 802.3af.
Selecting Power Supply Cords
Extreme Networks does not provide power input cords in the product box. To purchase a power cord
for your product and for your specific country, contact your local Extreme Networks Channel Account

BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide
Installation von Netzteilen
Bei der Installation sämtlicher Netzteile von Extreme Networks muss sichergestellt werden, dass die nachfolgend
aufgeführten Anforderungen erfüllt sind. Angaben zu Nennleistung und Leistungsbedarf finden sich in den
Installationsanweisungen für das jeweilige Netzteil (Power Supply Unit, PSU).
Folgende Anforderungen müssen unbedingt erfüllt sein:
●
Wenn der mit Wechsel- oder Gleichstrom betriebene Switch von Extreme Networks mit einem
externen grünen/gelben Erdungskabel ausgestattet ist, dann muss zunächst dieses Erdungskabel
zwischen der Grundplatte und einem geeigneten Erdungspunkt angeschlossen werden, bevor andere
Verbindungen zum Gerät hergestellt werden; dies gilt auch für den Anschluss an das Wechsel- bzw.
Gleichstromnetz. Beim Ausbau des Geräts aus dem Gestell muss das Erdungskabel als letztes
getrennt werden.
●
Netzteile nur an vorschriftsmäßig geerdete Steckdosen anschließen, um die Gefahr elektrischer
Schläge zu vermeiden und die Konformität mit internationalen Sicherheitsnormen zu gewährleisten.
●
Nur Stromkabel verwenden, die für den Einsatz in dem jeweiligen Land zugelassen sind.
Wechselstromkabel dürfen nicht manipuliert werden.
●
Die Wandsteckdose muss in der Nähe der Anlage installiert und leicht zugänglich sein, um eine
schnelle Trennung vom Netz zu ermöglichen.
●
Spannung und Frequenz der Steckdose müssen den elektrischen Nenndaten des Systems
entsprechen. Das Gebäude bzw. die Stromquelle muss mit einem Überlastschutz ausgestattet sein.
●
Einen Spannungsstoßunterdrücker, einen Netzfilter oder eine unterbrechungsfreie Stromversorgung
verwenden, um das System vor einer vorübergehenden Zu- oder Abnahme der elektrischen Leistung
zu schützen.
●
Bei laufendem Betrieb austauschbare Netzteile: Das Netzteil vorsichtig, nicht mit Kraft in das
Aufnahmefach einsetzen.
●
Bei Einsatz mehrer Netzteile in einem Switch sind die Netzteile jeweils an unterschiedliche,
unabhängige Stromquellen anzuschließen. Auf diese Weise ist bei einem Ausfall einer einzelnen
Stromquelle nur das daran angeschlossene Netzteil betroffen. Wenn alle Netzteile eines einzelnen
Switch an dieselbe Stromquelle angeschlossen sind, ist der gesamte Switch für einen Ausfall der
Stromversorgung anfällig.
Leistungsspezifikationen für Netzteile von Extreme Networks finden sich in Anhang B dieses
Dokuments oder im Netzteil-Datenblatt unter http://www.extremenetworks.com.
Die 325 W DC-Netzteile von Extreme Networks sind nicht mit Ein-/Ausschaltern ausgestattet. Vor dem Einstecken
des Gleichstromkabels in den Gleichstromanschluss des 325 W DC-Netzteils von Extreme Networks sowie vor dem
Abziehen des Kabels sicherstellen, dass der Gleichstromkreis abgeschaltet ist.
Das Gleichstromkabel des 325 W DC-Netzteils muss von einem qualifizierten, zugelassenen Elektriker an die
Gleichspannungsquelle in Ihrem Gebäude angeschlossen werden.
Extreme Networks 325 W AC Netzteile haben keinen An- Aus Schalter. Die Stromzufuhr zu einem Extreme Networks
325 W AC Netzteil wird durch das Ziehen des Netzkabels unterbrochen. Es ist sicherzustellen das diese Verbindung
leicht zugänglich ist.
Das Netzteil nicht ausserhalb von dem Gehäuse an das Netz anschliessen da hierdurch gefährliche Spannungen
zugänglich werden sowie die Gefahr von einem elektrischem Schlag und/ oder Feuergefahr besteht.
Nicht die Hand in den Netzteilschacht einführen wenn das Netzteil entfernt ist. Leere Netzteilschächte müssen
immer mit eine Abdeckplatte bedeckt sein.
