The customer is responsible for satisfying these requirements.
Install a DC power source that meets the server’s input power specifications.
Secure DC power cables that meet the server’s power cabling specifications.
Attach the DC input plug to the DC input power cables. The input plug is provided in the server’s shipping kit.
Caution - Do not proceed with these instructions until you are sure that there is no voltage present on the DC power cables.
For each cable, you need the items shown in the following illustration. These items are included in the shipping kit that came with your server.
Figure 16 DC Connection Parts
-48V or -60V (negative terminal)
-48V or -60V Return (positive terminal)
Note - Depending on the DC power source, the -48V or -60V (negative terminal) might be marked with a minus (-) symbol. The -48V or -60V Return (positive terminal) might be marked with a positive (+) symbol.
Do not strip more than 5/16 in. (8 mm) from each wire. Doing so leaves uninsulated wire exposed from the DC connector after the assembly is complete.
