• Connecting the PDU to the Site Power Supply, on page 3-2
Please refer to the documentation delivered with your server and/or device
mportant for detailed cable management information.
3.1.
Routing Data Cables
Please refer to the documentation delivered with your server and/or device for detailed cable
management information.
GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS
mportant • Label all cables for easy identification.
• Secure cables with appropriate fixtures.
• Ensure that cables are clear of doors and panels.
• Take care not to route cables in front of other servers or devices.
• When servers or devices are installed on slide rails:
Leave extra cable lengths for full mobility.
Route cables along cable arms and secure with appropriate fixtures.
• Check that the PDU is compliant with server and/or device power
requirements.
3.1.1.
Routing Inter-Cabinet Data Cables
DANGER
Power cables must NEVER be routed between cabinets.
Route inter-cabinet data cables through the cable openings at the rear of
mportant the cabinets.

Connecting a PDU to the Site Power Supply
As required in the Site Preparation Guide, the Customer has provided the required power
supply cables to the cable cut-outs at the base of the cabinet.
The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the electrical network is compliant with the
standards set out in the Site Preparation Guide.
PDU power cables are equipped with ready-mounted IEC60309 plugs. The Customer is
responsible for supplying the appropriate IEC60309 sockets for connection to the site power
supply. The following figure shows the provided plug and the appropriate socket.
Figure 18. Power plug and socket
3.3.1.
Safety Recommendations
CAUTION
Only duly certified electricians may connect the PDU to the power supply, under the
Customer's responsibility.
CAUTION
The PDU is equipped with three-wire power cables for user safety. Use these power cables
with properly grounded electrical outlets to avoid electrical shock.
DANGER
An electrical outlet that is not correctly wired could place hazardous voltage on metal parts. It
is the Customer's responsibility to ensure that the outlet is correctly wired and grounded to
prevent an electrical shock.
DANGER
Use one hand, when possible, to connect or disconnect signal cables to prevent a possible
shock from touching two surfaces with different electrical potentials.
Due to energy hazard, remove all jewelry before servicing.
Check that the dedicated power supply circuit breakers are OFF.
3.3.2.
Mounting the PDU Power Cable Socket
1. Check that the power supply cable is not live with the multimeter.
2. Carefully guide the PDU power supply cable through the cable inlet at the base of the
cabinet.
3. Check that the power supply cable is long enough for connection to the PDU.
3-2
R@ck'n Roll & R@ck-to-Build Installation and Service Guide
4. Unscrew the base of the socket (A), insert the cable through the socket base (B), and wire
to the socket head, as shown below. Power supply cabling
Figure 19. PDU power socket
5. Screw the socket base back to the socket head (C).
6. Check for < 0.1 ohm resistance between the grounding pin on the power cable plug and
the metal frame with the multimeter.
7. Connect the power supply cable socket to the PDU power cable plug.
8. Use appropriate fasteners to secure the cable into place along the cabinet frame.
The PDU can now be connected to the site power supply.
