Cautions and Warnings
Grounding and Electrical Safety
CAUTION: AI equipment and its peripherals contain electrostatic sensitive
components. Proper handling, shipping, and storage precautions must
be exercised:
You must remove and install cards in a static-free environment. Wear
an antistatic wrist strap that is plugged into the AI equipment so you
are grounded at the same point as the equipment.
Do not remove cards from their antistatic plastic bags until you are
ready to install them into the chassis.
Immediately after you remove a card from the chassis, you must
insert it into its antistatic bag.
When the cards are not in use, keep them in their antistatic plastic
Do not ship or store cards near strong electrostatic, electromagnetic,
or radioactive fields.
CAUTION: For AI equipment to operate safely and correctly, there must be a safety
ground strap between the equipment ground bolts and the office ground.
CAUTION: In the event that AI130 has been subjected to adverse environmental
conditions, a service inspection of AI130 should be made to ensure safe
Lithium Batteries
CAUTION: Risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect type. Dispose of
used batteries according to the instructions.
CAUTION: Il y a risque d'explosion si la batterie est remplacée par une batterie de
type incorrect. Mettre au rebut les batteries usagées conformément aux
Cautions and Warnings
The Federal Communications Commission has set limits for emitted radio
interference, and AI130 is constructed with this electromagnetic interference (EMI)
limitation in mind. AI130 is classified under FCC regulations as a Class A device, that
is, a device for use in commercial environments and not in residential areas. This
device has been tested and shown to comply with the following FCC rule: Part 15
Subpart J. Operation of this equipment in a residential area may cause interference to
radio and TV reception, requiring the user to take whatever steps are necessary to
correct the interference.
Information is available from the FCC describing possible corrective actions. To
maintain low EMI levels, we suggest that you use only metal connectors and shielded
cable grounded to the frame.
Specifications are subject to change without notice.

Wire for ground connection (10 AWG, copper conductor)
Ground lugs for rack or other earth ground
Step 1: Attach Mounting Flanges
Attach the mounting flanges to fit a 19-inch or 23-inch rack. You can also attach the
flanges in three locations providing multiple alignment options to the rack. Figure 2
displays a 23-inch configuration.
Figure 2 Mounting Flanges Attached for 23-inch Configuration
Step 2: Attach AI130 to Rack
Install the mounting screws into the mounting holes and tighten firmly. The switch
requires a minimum of two screws per side.
Note: No minimum clearance required above or below the chassis.
Figure 3 AI130 Installed in Rack
Step 3: Attach Chassis Ground
Connect the AI130 chassis ground to a suitable ground such as the frame ground of
the rack system or to a reliable earth ground.
CAUTION: The chassis ground must be connected to the same earthing electrode
conductor as the DC supply system or to a bonding jumper (from an
earthing terminal or bus) connected to the earthing electrode of the DC
supply system.
The chassis must be located in the same immediate area (such as
adjacent cabinets) as other equipment connected to the same DC power
system and earthing electrode conductor. The DC system cannot be
earthed elsewhere.
The DC power source must be located in the same premises as the
No switching or disconnecting devices can be between the earthed
conductor of the DC source and the earthing electrode conductor.
Figure 4 Attach Chassis Ground
Step 4: Connect Input Power
Turn the power supplies off. Connect the input power feed to the power supply
connector A. Be careful to observe polarity. If using a redundant input power feed,
connect the other input power cable to connector B.
If using a redundant -48 DC power supply (RDC180-HP), connect the input power in
the same manner as the first power supply.
If using only one -48 VDC power supply, it can be plugged into either power supply
slot. For safety and for efficient cooling, cover the unused slot with a blank cover (part
number RDC180-BC).
If using an AC power supply (AI325-AC), plug the furnished power cord into the
connector on the power supply.
WARNING: Turn off both power feeds before connecting wires.
CAUTION: For safety and to ensure proper cooling, cover all unused power supply
slots with a blank cover (part number RDC180-BC).
Figure 5 Connect Input Power
Step 5: (optional) Connect External Alarm Devices
Connect the external alarm signaling devices to the alarm relay contacts. The
normally-opened or normally-closed outputs can be used to trigger external alarm
WARNING: Turn off the power feed before connecting wires.
Figure 6 Connect External Alarm Devices
Step 6: Install Line Card
CAUTION: Personnel handling cards must wear an antistatic wrist strap and follow
electrostatic procedures.
CAUTION: Installing a card into the incorrect slot may damage the card.
CAUTION: For safety and to ensure proper cooling, cover all unused card slots with
a blank cover (part number AI180-BC).
See the figure below for slot assignments. To install the line card into the chassis:
1. Position the card so the components are face up.
2. Align the card with the card guides of the chassis.
3. Gently slide the card into the chassis.
4. Firmly press the faceplate of the card until the internal connectors engage.
5. Tighten the two thumbscrews to secure the card to the chassis.

Step 9: (optional) Configure IP Address on a Line Card in
Standalone Mode
Configuring the IP address on a line card in standalone mode allows the card to be
accessed remotely. For complete configuration information, refer to the user
documentation of the specific card.
1. Set the terminal emulation software on the PC/terminal emulator for 9600 baud,
no parity, eight data bits, one stop bit, no flow control.
2. Using a terminal cable, connect the PC/terminal to asynchronous port 1 on AI296
or AI232, to the CRAFT port on AIfocus or AIwan, or to the CONSOLE port on
AIconnect, AIextend, or AIfirewall. Press ENTER.
3. At the login prompt, enter ai. This is the default login.

Calculating Current Draw
Use this procedure to calculate the actual current that AI130 draws from the DC
power source. Calculations are based on the Total Chassis Power Consumption
(Watts), a value developed in Table 3. For multi-chassis systems, perform the
calculation for each chassis and then sum the chassis totals to find the total system
current. This total current is used by the site engineer to determine power plant
capacity requirements.
