FortiGate-5050 chassis
FortiGate-5050 chassis
You can install up to five FortiGate-5000 series boards in the five slots of the
FortiGate-5050 ATCA chassis. The FortiGate-5050 is a 5U 19-inch rackmount ATCA
chassis that contains two redundant DC power connections that connect to -48 VDC Data
Center DC power. The FortiGate-5050 chassis also includes a hot swappable cooling fan
tray. If all five slots contain FortiGate-5005FA2, FortiGate-5001SX, or FortiGate-5001FA2
boards, the FortiGate-5050 chassis provides a total of 40 1-Gigabit ethernet FortiGate
interfaces. If all 5 slots contain FortiGate-5001A boards the FortiGate-5050 chassis
supports 10 1-Gigabit ethernet FortiGate interfaces. If you add FortiGate-ADM-XB2
modules to the FortiGate-5001A boards the FortiGate-5050 chassis supports up to ten
10-Gigabit interfaces
You can also install FortiSwitch-5003A or FortiSwitch-5003 boards in the FortiGate-5050
chassis slots 1 and 2 to provide base backplane communications. Base backplane
communications can be used for HA heartbeat communications and data communications
using FortiGate-5050 base backplane channels. You can add a second FortiSwitch-5003A
or FortiSwitch-5003 board for redundancy. FortiSwitch-5003A boards can also provide
fabric backplane communication using the FortiGate-5050 fabric backplane channels.
You can mix and match any combination of FortiGate-5000 series boards in the
FortiGate-5050 chassis. For example, you could install two FortiGate-5005FA2 boards,
two FortiGate-5001SX boards, and one FortiGate-5001FA2 board. You can also install
FortiController-5208 and FortiGate-5005FA2 boards in a FortiGate-5050 chassis to create
a FortiGate-5005-DIST security system.
Some of the boards installed in a FortiGate-5050 chassis can be operating in a FortiGate
HA cluster and some can be operating as standalone FortiGate units. You can also
operate multiple HA clusters and standalone FortiGate units in a single FortiGate-5050
chassis. You can also use FortiSwitch-5003A or FortiSwitch-5003 boards to operate HA
clusters consisting of FortiGate-5000 series boards installed in multiple FortiGate-5000
chassis. You can also use FortiSwitch-5003A boards for fabric data communication
between chassis.
The FortiGate-5050 chassis also includes 5 rear transition module (RTM) slots. The
FortiGate-5050 chassis supports 10-gigabit fabric channel communication if you have
installed FortiGate-5001A boards with FortiGate-RTM-XB2 modules and one or two
FortiSwitch-5003A boards.
The FortiGate-5050 chassis requires -48VDC Data Center DC power. If DC power is not
available you can install a FortiGate-5053 power converter tray (purchased separately)
with FortiGate-5020/5050 power supplies.

Shelf manager command line interface (CLI)
You can use the shelf manager CLI to communicate with the intelligent management
controllers of the chassis, with boards in the chassis, and with the shelf manager itself.
The CLI is an IPMI-based set of commands that can be accessed directly or through a
higher-level management application or a script. Using the CLI, you can access
information about the current state of the chassis including current board population,
current sensor values, threshold settings, recent events, and overall chassis health.
Connecting to the shelf manager CLI using the console port
You can connect to the shelf manager CLI using the shelf manager RS-232 RJ-45 console
port. To connect this console port to a management PC you must use the Fortinet shelf
manager console adapter (FGSMC ADPTR 1). You cannot connect a standard nullmodem console cable to the shelf manager console port.

FortiGate-5050 shelf manager alarm functions
The FortiGate-5050 shelf manager alarm functions provide LED indicators of
FortiGate-5050 alarms, a telco alarm connector, and an alarm LED reset button. The LED
alarm indicators include critical, major, and minor alarms.
The alarm LED reset button (RESET) on the shelf alarm panel activates the Alarm Cutoff
(ACO) state. When ACO is activated, the active alarm LED blinks and all of the alarm
relays are deactivated.
Shelf manager telco alarms
The shelf manager telco alarm interface relay circuits are capable of carrying 60 VDC or
1 A with a max. rating of 30 VA. The shelf manager accepts timed pulse inputs for clearing
minor and major alarm states. Reset is accomplished by asserting a voltage differential
from 3.3 V to 48 V for between 200 and 300 ms. The acceptance voltage range is from 0
to 48 VDC continuous (handles up to 60 VDC at a 50% duty cycle). The current drawn by
a reset input does not exceed 12 mA.
The alarm LED reset button activates the alarm cutoff (ACO) state for major, minor, and
user-defined alarms. You cannot reset critical alarms with the alarm LED reset button.
When the ACO state is activated, active alarm LEDs blink and all of the alarm relays are
deactivated. The alarm reset button activates the ACO state but does not clear the alarm
completely.

FortiGate-5050 shelf management functions
The shelf managers support redundant operation with automatic switchover. If both shelf
managers are operating normally, one acts as the active shelf manager and the other as
the standby. Usually the primary shelf manager would be the active shelf manager and the
secondary shelf manager would be the standby shelf manager. The shelf managers
monitor each other and either can trigger a switchover if necessary. The active shelf
manager performs all shelf manager functions. If the active shelf manager fails or is
removed, the standby shelf manager takes over all shelf manager functions.
The FortiGate-5050 shelf managers control chassis power up and power down, chassis
power distribution, monitor chassis operating parameters, monitor and control chassis
cooling, and can signal alarms if the chassis encounters problems. All FortiGate-5000
boards installed in the chassis communicate with the shelf managers.
The FortiGate-5050 shelf managers are factory installed. In most cases users do not have
to install or configure the shelf managers.
Each shelf manager has one ethernet interface (ETH 0 and ETH 1). You can connect to
ETH 0 from the shelf manager front panel. ETH 1 connects to the FortiGate-5050
backplane.
The shelf managers are hot swappable. You can remove a shelf manager by opening the
handle until the hot swap LED starts blinking. When the hot swap LED turns solid blue you
can remove the shelf manager from the FortiGate-5050 chassis.

About data center DC power
The FortiGate-5050 chassis is designed to be installed in a data center or similar location
that has available -48VDC power (also called battery power). Fortinet expects that most
FortiGate-5050 customers will be installing their FortiGate equipment in a data center or
similar location that is already equipped with a -48VDC power system that provides power
to existing networking or telecom equipment. The FortiGate-5050 chassis are designed to
be connected directly to this DC power system.
In this document, data center DC power refers to a -48VDC power system that is already
available at the location at which the FortiGate-5050 chassis is being installed.
Connecting the FortiGate-5050 chassis to data center DC power
and data center ground
Connect the FortiGate-5050 chassis to data center DC power using the redundant power
input connectors on the FortiGate-5050 back panel. Fortinet supplies and recommends
AWG-14 stranded wires for all power connections: Black for -48VDC and red for RTN.
Green AWG-6 wires are recommended for ground connections. If required, install terminal
lugs on the wires before connecting them to the power input connectors.

Selecting the power supplies and power converter trays that you need for your
FortiGate-5050 configuration
This section provides some basic information for determining how many FortiGate-5053
power converter trays and FortiGate-5020/5050 power supplies that you need, depending
on the power requirements of your FortiGate-5050 chassis. This section provides
guidelines only. Actual requirements may vary depending on your installation
requirements. Contact Fortinet Technical Support if you need more information.
The FortiGate-5053 power converter tray contains space for up to three
FortiGate-5020/5050 power supplies. A FortiGate-5020/5050 power supply converts AC
power to -48 VDC power. Each FortiGate-5020/5050 power supply provides 800W of
power.
The FortiGate-5053 power converter tray uses 2 + 1 power supply redundancy. If three
FortiGate-5020/5050 power supplies are installed in a FortiGate-5053 power converter
tray, the first two power supplies provide a total of 1600W (2 x 800W) of power. The third
power supply is the redundant backup.
The maximum power output for a FortiGate-5053 power converter tray with FortiGate5020/5050 power supplies is 1600W; which can be achieved with two FortiGate5020/5050 power supplies. If you need 1600W of power and power supply redundancy,
you can add a third FortiGate-5020/5050 power supply.
Individual power requirements vary. If 800W is enough power and redundancy is not
required, you need one FortiGate-5053 power converter tray and one FortiGate5020/5050 power supply.
If 800W is sufficient but a redundant power supply is required, you can add a second
FortiGate-5020/5050 power supply. This second power supply will also cover power
requirements between 800 and 1600W. If you require redundant power greater than 800W
you can add a third FortiGate-5020/5050 power supply.
Basic power requirements
To supply enough power for a FortiGate-5050 chassis with a total of five FortiGate boards
and FortiSwitch boards you require one FortiGate-5053 power converter tray and two
FortiGate-5020/5050 power supplies (see Figure 10). The FortiGate-5020/5050 power
supplies are installed in FortiGate-5053 slots 1 and 2. This configuration supplies 1600W
of power to the FortiGate-5020/5050 chassis.
Note: If your will not be filling all of the FortiGate-5050 slots you may not need both
FortiGate-5020/5050 power supplies.

Redundant FortiGate-5053 power converter trays
A single FortiGate-5053 power converter tray is usually only connected to one
FortiGate-5050 power input connector. If this power input connector or FortiGate-5053
power converter tray fails or is disconnected the FortiGate-5050 chassis will loose power.
You can supply redundant power to the entire FortiGate-5050 chassis by adding a second
FortiGate-5053 power converter containing two or three FortiGate-5020/5050 power
supplies and connected this FortiGate-5053 power converter tray to the second
FortiGate-5050 power input connector.

converter tray
The following procedure describes how to connect one FortiGate-5050 power input
connector to a FortiGate-5053 power converter tray. For normal operation, only one power
input connector must be connected. For redundant chassis DC power you can connect the
second power input connector to a second FortiGate-5053 power converter tray.
You need the following tools and equipment to connect a FortiGate-5020/5050 power
input connector to a FortiGate-5053 power converter tray:
•
A number 2 Phillips screwdriver.
•
An electrostatic discharge (ESD) preventive wrist or ankle strap with connection cord.
•
One black AWG-14 stranded wire with terminal lugs attached and labelled -48V.
•
One red AWG-14 stranded wire with terminal lugs attached and labelled RTN.
•
A FortiGate-5053 power converter tray containing two or three FortiGate-5020/5050
power supplies and mounted in a rack near the FortiGate-5050 chassis.
Caution: The FortiGate-5053 power converter tray should not be connected to AC power
until specified in the following procedure.
1 Attach the ESD wrist strap to your wrist and to an ESD socket or to a bare metal
surface on the chassis or frame.
2 Loosen the screws and remove the protection plate from the FortiGate-5050 power

8 If required, label the black wires -48V.
9 If required, label the red wires RTN.
10 Re-attach the protection plate to the FortiGate-5050 power input connector.
11 Attach the clear plastic cover to the back of the FortiGate-5053 power converter tray.
12 Connect the FortiGate-5053 power converter tray to AC power.
Only connect the power supplies that are installed in the FortiGate-5053 to AC power.
For example, if your FortiGate-5053 includes two FortiGate-5020/5050 power supplies,
the power supplies will be installed in slots 1 and 2. In this case you should only
connect AC in connectors 1 and 2 to AC power. If your FortiGate-5053 power converter
tray contains three power supples, connect all three AC in connectors to AC power.
The photograph in Figure 15 shows the back panel of a FortiGate-5053 wired to provide
power to a FortiGate-5050 chassis. This photograph also shows the clear back cover of
the FortiGate-5053 installed. You should install this cover using the mounting hardware
provided. Install the cover after connecting the power but before turning the power on.

Turning on FortiGate-5050 chassis power
Figure 15: Wiring the FortiGate-5053 power converter tray
To connect the FortiGate-5050 chassis to data center ground
The FortiGate-5053 power converter tray does not have a ground connector. So, even if
you are using a FortiGate-5053 power converter tray to supply DC power to your
FortiGate-5050, you must use the procedure “To connect the FortiGate-5050 chassis to
data center ground” on page 15 to connect the FortiGate-5050 to data center ground.
Turning on FortiGate-5050 chassis power
If you are using a FortiGate-5053 power converter, connect the FortiGate-5053 power
converter to AC power. When the FortiGate-5020/5050 power supplies start up the power
supply fans should begin operating. Each FortiGate-5020/5050 power supply has two
front panel power LEDs (see Figure 8 on page 16). When the FortiGate-5053 power
converter is operating normally, both of the FortiGate-5020/5050 power supply LEDs
should be lit for each connected power supply.
If you are using data center DC power, turn own the power to the chassis according to the
requirements of your data center DC power system.
Once the FortiGate-5050 chassis is connected to DC power you can turn on power to the
chassis by switching on the circuit breakers at the back of the chassis (see Figure 2 on
page 7 for location of the circuit breakers).
The FortiGate-5050 chassis powers up. If the FortiGate-5050 is operating correctly, the
Power LED on the right side of the chassis front panel should be lit (see Figure 1 on
page 6). As well, the Status LED on the FortiGate-5050 shelf manager front panels should
be lit (see Figure 3 on page 8).
When the chassis first starts up you should also hear the cooling fans operating.
In addition, if any FortiGate-5000 series boards have been installed in the chassis they
should power on and their front panel LEDs should indicate that they are operating
normally.

FortiGate-5050 hardware procedures
Mounting the FortiGate-5050 chassis
FortiGate-5050 hardware procedures
This chapter assumes the chassis has been mounted and connected to a power source
as detailed in “Power connection and configuration” on page 13.
This chapter discusses:
•
Mounting the FortiGate-5050 chassis
•
Inserting 5000 series boards into a FortiGate-5050 chassis
•
Using FortiSwitch-5003A and FortiSwitch-5003 boards for backplane communication
Mounting the FortiGate-5050 chassis
Note: Mount the FortiGate chassis before installing the FortiGate-5000 series boards.
The FortiGate-5050 chassis must be mounted in a standard 19-inch rack. The chassis
requires 5U of vertical space in the rack.
If you install the FortiGate-5050 chassis in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the
operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater than room
ambient temperature. Make sure the operating ambient temperature does not exceed the
manufacturer's maximum rated ambient temperature.
Caution: The FortiGate-5050 chassis should not be operated as a free-standing appliance.
Air flow
For rack installation, make sure that the amount of air flow required for safe operation of
the FortiGate-5050 chassis is not compromised.
Inserting 5000 series boards into a FortiGate-5050 chassis
You can insert FortiGate-5000 series and FortiSwitch boards into the FortiGate-5050
chassis. Arrange the boards in slots as required for your configuration. FortiGate-5000
series boards can be installed in any FortiGate-5050 slots. FortiSwitch-5003 boards can
only be installed in switch slots 1 and 2.
Your FortiGate-5050 chassis may have been shipped with temporary slot filler panels that
include a warning message to read the FortiGate-5000 documentation before installing
your product. The temporary slot fillers must be removed and all slots filled; either with
FortiGate-5000 series boards or with air baffle slot fillers. Air baffle slot fillers are similar to
blank FortiGate-5000 boards and are required for proper cooling air flow.

Using FortiSwitch-5003A and FortiSwitch-5003 boards for backplane communication
FortiGate-5050 hardware procedures
Caution: FortiGate-5000 series and FortiSwitch-5000 series boards must be protected
from static discharge and physical shock. Only handle or work with FortiGate-5000 series
and FortiSwitch-5000 series boards at a static-free workstation. Always wear a grounded
electrostatic discharge (ESD) preventive wrist or ankle strap when handling FortiGate-5000
series or FortiSwitch-5000 series boards.
Caution: Do not operate the FortiGate-5050 chassis with open slots on the front panel or
rear panel. For optimum cooling performance and safety, front panel slots must contain a
FortiGate-5000 series board or an air baffle slot filler and rear panel slots must either be
covered or must contain a rear transition board or slot filler. As well the removable PEM
terminal block covers must be installed over the power connectors on the back of the
chassis.

Using FortiSwitch-5003A and FortiSwitch-5003 boards for
backplane communication
FortiSwitch-5003A boards installed in a FortiGate-5050 chassis in slot 1 or slot 2 provide
fabric backplane switching for all of the FortiGate-5000 series boards installed in chassis
slots 3 and above. Fabric backplane switching is most often used for data communication
between FortiGate-5000 series boards in a chassis, between chassis, and between the
chassis and the network.
FortiSwitch-5003A and 5003 boards installed in a FortiGate-5050 chassis in slot 1 or slot 2
provide base backplane switching for all of the FortiGate-5000 series boards installed in
chassis slots 3 and above. Base backplane switching is usually used for HA heartbeat
communication between FortiGate-5000 series boards in HA clusters.
For complete information about using the FortiSwitch-5003A and 5003 for backplane
communications (including the FortiSwitch-5003A CLI reference), see the
FortiSwitch-5003A and 5003 Fabric and Base Backplane Communication Guide.
