Connecting Power to the GigaVUE‑HC1-Plus

The GigaVUE‑HC1-Plus supports AC and DC power in a 1+1 redundant configuration. In all cases, only a single power supply module is required to operate the node. However, connecting both modules in a 1+1 configuration provides redundant power.


Note:  It is recommended not to insert different product codes PSU in the same chassis. Doing so will give an SNMP mismatch trap. For example, PSU PWR-TAC21 and PWR-HC1P1, PWR-TAC22 and PWR-HC1P2 must not co-exist in PSU slots; PSU AC/DC and PSU DC/DC must not co-exist in PSU slots.


The procedure for connecting power to the GigaVUE‑HC1-Plus is similar to the other GigaVUE H Series nodes:

GigaVUE Chassis Type

Number of Power Supply Modules



  1. Plug an approved C13 power cable into each of the power supply modules at the rear of the GigaVUE‑HC1-Plus chassis.

Note: For information about connecting the optional DC power supply modules, refer to Connecting DC Power Supply Module.

1 Connecting AC Power (GigaVUE‑HC1-Plus)
  1. Plug the other end of the power cables into a power source that can supply adequate power. For optimal power protection, plug the power supply modules into separate circuits. When connecting to the external AC power source, ensure that a Surge Protective Device (SPD) is installed at the AC power inlet. For information aboutGigaVUE‑HC1-Plus power requirements, refer to AC- and DC-Powered GigaVUE‑HC1-Plus.

Note:  To avoid disk corruption, please ensure the "reload halt" command is executed before an ungraceful power shutdown or power supply module removal.

  1. Power is turned ON when the unit is plugged in, and turned off when the unit is unplugged. To remove a power supply module, refer to Removing a Power Supply Module.

  2. Once the power supply is turned OFF, wait for 1 minute (60 seconds) before turning the power supply ON for GigaVUE‑HC1-Plus.
