Only one AC power module is required for the 4-slot chassis, although two power
module slots are provided to implement N+1 redundancy.
The 7-slot and 8-slot chassis provides three power module slots to implement N+1
redundancy. However, two power modules are sufficient to power one of these
fully loaded Switch 7700 systems.
The 8-slot chassis offers both AC and DC power modules. Table 44 describes the
specifications of each type of power module.

The Switch 7750 power distribution box is installed on the chassis floor in the back
of the chassis. It filters, connects, disconnects, and distributes electrical current to
the switch.
The power distribution box for the 4-slot chassis has two inputs and each input
has a separate ON/OFF switch. One input can support the normal operation of one
power module. Both AC inputs must be connected and switched on to provide
power to both power modules and to offer N+1 AC power redundancy. When
two power modules are installed but only one AC power input is working, only
one power module will operate. However, the power module LEDs on the Fabric
display alarm information for the power module that is not working.
The power distribution box for the 7-slot and 8-slot chassis has two inputs and
two ON/OFF switches. One input can support the normal operation of three AC
power modules at the same time. When both AC power inputs are connected and
switched on, the power distribution box offers N+1 AC power redundancy.
External PoE Power
System
The Switch 7750 supports power-over-Ethernet (PoE). When the Switch 7750 is
equipped with an external PoE power system and PoE-capable I/O modules, it can
provide -48 V DC power to remote powered devices (PDs), such as IP phones,
WLAN APs, and network cameras through twisted pair cable.
Figure 30 illustrates the Switch 7750 PoE power system.

rear chassis panel.
Rack-Mounted Switch
If you have installed your switch in a 19-inch standard rack, the cables are bound
on the cable binding rack at the left side of the chassis and arranged to run on the
cable rack or under a raised floor. Collect all the transit data signal cable
connectors and locate them on the floor of the chassis. Power cords run out of the
rear left of the chassis and on a cable rack or under a raised floor.
Cable Binding
Keep the following precautions in mind as you bind cables:
■
Do not allow cables to twist or bend as you bind them.
■
The cable body cannot be bent at an angle that is more than twice its diameter.
The cable running out of a connector cannot be bent more than five times its
diameter.
■
Different types of cables (power cord, signal cable, and ground wire) should
not be bound together in a cabinet. Although different types of cable may
cross over each other, they must not be bound together where they cross. For
parallel cabling, the space between a power cord and a signal cable should be
no less than 30 mm (1.25 in).
■
The cable binding rack and cable channel inside and outside a cabinet should
be smooth.
■
The hole through which a cable runs through should be smooth or have a
rubber grommet.
■
Use plastic cabling ties to bind the cables.
■
Bind cables before bending them. Ensure that no tie binds the bent part of any
cables to prevent the core of the cable from breaking.
■
Do not tie power cables to the guides of any mobile components.
■
For the cable terminals fixed with screws, the screws or nuts should be
fastened securely.
■
Do not use tapping screws to fasten the cabling terminals.

Upgrading Software
Using Xmodem
The Xmodem protocol transmits files through serial ports and supports both
128-byte and 1K-byte packets. Xmodem also supports two types of check; normal
checksum and CRC. When there is a packet error, retransmission is supported,
normally 10 times.
The Xmodem protocol completes transmission by receiving and sending programs.
The receiving program first sends the negotiating characters to negotiate the
check means. After passing the negotiation, the sending program begins to send
the packet.
The receiving program checks the packet according to the negotiated means after
receiving a complete packet. The acknowledgement characters are sent after
passing the check and then the sending program continues to send the next

packet. If the check fails, negative characters are sent and the sending program
sends the packet again.

Upgrading Software
Using TFTP
TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) is a simple file transfer protocol that is used
without complex interaction between clients and servers.
The client initiates a TFTP transmission. To download files, the client sends a read
request packet to the TFTP server, receives the packet from the server, and sends
the acknowledgement to the server. To upload files, the client sends a write
request packet to the TFTP server, sends the data packet to the server, and receives
the acknowledgement from the server.
The Switch 7750 provides the functions of the TFTP client.

The simplest way to diagnose a fault is to check the system status LEDs on the
Fabric modules. In addition, with the DeviceMgr network management system,
you can also locate the fault through management software.
Troubleshooting the
Configuration
No information is
displayed on the
terminal
After the switch is powered on, booting information is displayed on the
configuration terminal. If the configuration system has failed, there is no screen
display at the configuration terminal or the displayed characters are illegible.
If there is no information displayed on the terminal after the Switch 7750 is
powered on, check that:
■
The power system is working normally.
■
The Fabric is working normally.
■
The console cable has been connected to the console port in the Fabric.
If this procedure does not reveal the problem, verify that the console cable is
properly connected and that the configuration terminal is set correctly.
The display characters
are illegible
Troubleshooting
Power
If the displayed characters are illegible, the parameters of configuration terminal
may not have been set correctly. See Setting Terminal Parameters on page 49.
If the Power OK LED is off, there may be something wrong with the system power
supply. Check that:
■
The power module has been installed in the correct position to ensure normal
communication with the backplane.
■
The switch power has been turned on.
■
The power cord is connected properly.
■

WARNING: Insure that the switch is powered off before removing or installing a
power module.
Removing the AC Power
Module
To remove the power module, do the following:
1 Power off the Switch 7750.
2 Remove the power cord from both the power module and the AC power socket.
3 Loosen the retaining screw that secures the power supply on the lower right front
of the power supply.
4 Remove the power supplies approximately 2 inches (5 cm) from the chassis to
disconnect the power supply AC connectors from the AC power module.
5 Loosen and remove the 4 screws at the corners of the power module.
6 Remove the power module from the chassis.
Installing the AC Power
Module
To install the new power module, do the following:
1 Slide the replacement power module into the power module slot in the bottom
rear of the chassis.
2 Insert and tighten the 4 screws at the corners of the power module.

CHAPTER 6: MAINTAINING HARDWARE
6 Connect the power cords to separate AC power sources on separate power grids
or to a UPS/backup power system.
WARNING: Do not power on the switch until you reconnect all the components.
Replacing a Power
Supply
To replace a power supply, you need:
■
An antistatic wrist strap
■
A screwdriver
WARNING: When installing or replacing the power supply when the power is on,
do not touch any naked wire, terminal, or any other part of the product labeled
Dangerous Voltage. Always wear the antistatic wrist strap when replacing the
supply.
Use the following steps to replace a power supply:
1 Loosen the captive screws in the supply that you want to replace.
2 Support the power supply you are removing with one hand and gently pull the
handle with the other hand until it slides out of the slot.
3 If you are not going to install another power supply in this slot, install a blanking
plate on the chassis for dust-proofing and heat dissipation.
4 Remove the new power supply from the package and check the input mode.
5 Support the power supply in one hand and hold the handle with another hand.
Align the supply with the guides in the chassis and slide the supply gently into the
slot.
CAUTION: As you are inserting the power supply, if the pin terminal springs up,
the pin cannot be seated into the hole and the system will sound an alarm. If the
power supply has not been inserted properly, you should slide it out and insert it
again to avoid breaking or cracking the power terminals.
6 Fasten the captive screws.
CAUTION: If the captive screws cannot be fastened, the power supply may not
have been properly seated. Remove and replace the supply.
Over time, the filter on the power supply accumulates dust, which interferes with
the heat dissipation of the chassis. It is important to periodically clean the filter as
described below:
1 Remove the gauze filter by gently pulling it from the front of the power supply.
2 Take the filter to a fresh water supply and clean it.
3 Leave the filter to dry. Do not use heat to dry the filter as this may cause it to
distort.
4 When the filter is completely dry, gently push it back into the front of the power
module.
CAUTION: Do not clean the filter while it is in position at the front of the power
supply. Attempts to do so could result in damage to the equipment or severe
electrical shock.

1 Remove all the cables from the module to be removed.
2 Loosen the captive screws.
3 Hold the ejector levers on the module with both hands, and press them toward
both sides to separate the connectors of the module from the motherboard.
4 Gently slide the module along the guides and out of the slot.
5 Put the removed module into the package that contained the replacement
module.
Replace the blanking plate on the chassis if you do not install a new module in the
place where the old one was removed.
To install a replacement module:
1 With both hands, hold the ejector levers on the module that will be installed.
2 Align the module with the guides in the chassis and slide it into the slot gently
until you feel the positioning pin on the handle bar touch the hole in the chassis.
3 Press the ejector levers inward and seat the pin on the handle bar into the
positioning hole in the chassis.
4 Fasten the captive screws to fix the module.
Replacing the Fan
Assembly
You can hot-swap fan assemblies in the Switch 7750.
To replace a fan assembly, you need:
■
An antistatic wrist strap
■
A Screwdriver
WARNING: To avoid injury, do not touch any naked wire, terminal, or any part of
the product labeled Dangerous Voltage. Always wear the antistatic wrist strap
when replacing the fan module.
To replace a fan assembly:
1 Put on the antistatic wrist strap.
2 With both hands, pull out the ejector levers on the fan assembly to separate the
fan assembly connector from the backplane.
3 Pull the fan gently along the guides of the slot to remove it.
4 With both hands, pull out the ejector levers of the fan that will be installed. Align
it with the guides in the chassis and slide it gently into the slot until you feel the
positioning pin on the handle bar touch the hole in the chassis.
5 Press the ejector levers inward and seat the pin on the handle bar into the
positioning hole in the chassis.
