Installing the E300 DC Power Entry Module (PEM)
Installing the E300 DC Power Entry Module (PEM)
The E300 supports a minimum of 1 DC PEM. You must have only one type of power module in the chassis; you
cannot install a mixture of power modules. For redundant power, install two DC PEMs. To comply with safety
agency and emission requirements, a blank cover must be inserted into any unused power slot.
Requirements
Maximum Power Dissipation
2400W
Maximum DC PEM Input Current
60A
Redundancy
For full facility redundancy, install two DC PEMs where each PEM must be attached to an independent power
source with a dedicated circuit breaker sized in accordance with your local building and electrical safety codes.
Cable and Connector Requirements
You must provide your own cables to connect to a remote power source (a circuit breaker panel, for example) in
your equipment rack or facility. Cables must be sized to meet the following criteria:
•
•
Rated for 60 A service to allow for a fully loaded E300 system per NEC in the United States or internationally,
per local safety codes.
Limit voltage drop across the cable length to 0.5V or less.
Before you make the cable connections, apply a coat of anti-oxidant paste to unplated metal contact surfaces. File
unplated connectors, braided straps, and bus bars to a shiny finish. It is not necessary to file and coat tinned,
solder plated, or silver-plated connectors or other plated connection surfaces, such as those on the PEM studs.
Note: Please take precautions against over-tightening the screws or nuts on this device.

Task (continued)
Slide the PEM into power slot 0 or 1 (see (Figure 1).
Caution: Fill all four power supply slots with power supplies or filler blanks before tightening the power
supply screws. Doing this ensures that each power supply is aligned correctly. Ensure power supplies
are properly aligned prior to engaging the captive screws. Doing this will reduce the likelihood of
damaging screws or chassis.
It may be necessary to manually align the power supplies prior to tightening.
If you are only installing one PEM, replace the empty slot with two blank panels (CC-E300-BLNK-PWR).

Start the two captive screws on each power supply by hand before tightening them all.
Caution: Tighten the screws with a #2 Phillips screwdriver. Use no more than five inch-pounds of
torque (light torque with a manual screwdriver). Use of power drivers can damage screws or chassis.

Task (continued)
Secure the chassis ground connection:
Warning: You must complete the ground connection before proceeding with the PEM installation.
a. Locate the chassis ground connector studs on the PEM front panel (see Figure 3). The two studs
on the upper left are the ground connection.
b. Remove all nuts and washers from the two ground studs.
c. Apply a coat of anti-oxidant paste to the connector studs.
d. Install the grounding cable. This cable is typically green or green and yellow.
Note: Termination points require UL-listed 2-hole lug with 1/4-inch holes on 3/4-inch spacing.
e. Replace the two washers and nuts on the studs.
f. Secure the nuts with a nut driver or torque wrench (not to exceed 4 ft/lbs).
g. Connect the opposite end of the grounding cable to the appropriate nearest grounding.
7
Remove the outer nut and washer from each of the remaining studs.
8
Connect the -48 VDC and Return cables from each PEM to the remote power sources.
a Verify that the remote power source is in the OFF position.
b. Locate the appropriate studs on the PEM front panel. The two top studs are the return (+)
connection. The cable attached to these studs is typically red. The two bottom studs on the
PEM are the -48 VDC (-) connection. The cable attached to these studs is typically black.
Note: Power cables must be terminated only with a UL-listed 2-hole lug to accommodate 1/4-inch
studs with 3/4-inch spacing.
c. Apply a coat of anti-oxidant paste to the connector studs.
d. Replace the washers and nuts on the studs.
e. Route the terminated cables out toward the rack rail (Figure 3).
f. Secure the nuts with a nut driver or torque wrench (not to exceed 4 ft/lbs).

Task
1
Switch the Over Current Protector (located on the PEM front panel) to the OFF position.
2
Turn off power to the PEM. Ensure that the remote power source is in the OFF position and that the
PEM Status LED and Pwr In OK LED are off.
3
Loosen the retaining screw and remove PEM safety cover (see Figure 2).
