Issue Description

At a commercial deployment, a special chassis that contains no patch panel and power socket on its both sides is used. Instead, power cables are routed from the top of the chassis. One end of the power cable (a three-way plug) is connected to the air switch on the top of the chassis, while the other end (a standard female connector) is vertically placed for connecting to servers or switches. However, the power supply from ASELTEK that resides in the T8223 chassis does not use the standard female connector but three power blades even though the connector is adaptive to most devices (such as rackmount servers and disk arrays). And thus, the T8223 cannot be powered on directly.

Alarm Information


Handling Process

Cut off the female connector from the power cable that is supplied with the chassis as well as the three-way plug of the power supply. Peel off both cables, and interconnect their live wires, neutral wires, and earth wires (respectively in brown, blue, and yellowish green) by connecting the same color of cables together. And then, turn on the air switch to power on the chassis.

Root Cause



1. Consult the machine room administrator for approval before performing the operations mentioned above.
2. Ensure that the air switch is turned off during the operations.
3. Bundle each strand of the interconnected cables with insulating tapes. Also, bundle the resulted three strands together with insulating tapes for protection.
