Installation Guide 2.5.8 Ground Point The switch should be connected to ground using this screw connection. For more information on how to connect ground to the switch, see Power and Grounding on page 18. 2.5.9 AC Power Socket The switch requires a 100-240 VAC, 50-60 Hz AC power source. For more information on the switch power input, how to connect it, and how to power-on the switch, see Power and Grounding on page 18.
EX-3524/EX-3548 Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet PoE/PoE+ Switch 2.6 LED Codes 2.6.1 System Status LEDs The diagnostic and power LEDs located on the front panel are shown below and described in the following table: Condition Status DIAG Green Solid System diagnostic test completed successfully...
Installation Guide 2.6.2 Port Status LEDs The switch includes LEDs for each port to indicate link status and network activity. The port LEDs are shown below and described in the following table: Condition Status 1000BASET RJ-45 Ports (1 - 24 or 1 - 48) Link/Activity On/Blinking Amber Port has a valid 10/100 Mbps link.
EX-3524/EX-3548 Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet PoE/PoE+ Switch Hardware Installation The switch is designed to be installed in either a standard 19-inch equipment rack or simply placed on a suitable desktop or shelf surface. If you will mount your switch in a rack then plan your rack installation and install the switch chassis in the rack.
Installation Guide 2. Use the supplied rack mounting screws to secure the switch in the rack.
EX-3524/EX-3548 Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet PoE/PoE+ Switch 3. Connect an external AC power source to the AC power socket. 4. Verify basic switch operation by observing the system LEDs. For normal operation, both the DIAG and PWR LEDs should be solid green.
Installation Guide 5. Install the SFP transceivers and connect the cables to the port interfaces. • For RJ-45 ports, use 100-ohm category 3 or better Ethernet cable for 10BASE-T connections, use 100-ohm category 5 or better Ethernet cable for 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T connections. •...
3.3 Power and Grounding The switches require power from an external AC power supply that can provide 100 to 240 VAC, 50-60 Hz. A standard AC power socket is located on the rear panel EX-3524 (left) and EX-3548 (right) of the each switch.
Installation Guide The rear panel of the switch chassis includes a single hole grounding terminal. It must be connected to ground to ensure proper operation and to meet electromagnetic interference (EMI) and safety requirements. To ground the switch chassis: 1. Ensure the rack on which the switch is to be mounted is properly grounded and in compliance with ETSI ETS 300 253.
EX-3524/EX-3548 Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet PoE/PoE+ Switch 3.4 Port Connecctions 3.4.1 Installing SFP Transceivers The switch provides slots for optional (not provided) SFP transceivers. The supported transceiver types are listed below: • 1000BASE-SX • 1000BASE-LX • 1000BASE-LH • 1000BASE-FX • 1000BASE-T SPF transceivers are hot-swappable.
Installation Guide 4. Slide the transceiver into the slot until it clicks into place. If you do not immediately connect a cable to the port, use a rubber protective cap to keep the transceiver optics clean. To remove a transceiver, disconnect the network cable then pull the tab NOTE to remove the transceiver from the slot.
For the EX-3524, the total PoE power delivered by all ports cannot exceed the 390 W power budget. This means up to 12 ports can supply a maximum 30 W of power simultaneously to connected devices, or all 24 ports can supply a maximum of 15.4 W.
Installation Guide 3.4.5 Connecting to SFP Ports The switch provides four ports for SFP-compliant fiber-optic transceivers. All 1000BASE fiber optic ports operate at 1 Gbps full duplex. The 100BASE fiber optic ports operate at 100 Mbps full duplex. Fiber Maximum Cable Cable Type Bandwidth Length...
EX-3524/EX-3548 Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet PoE/PoE+ Switch 3. Connect one end of the cable to the SFP port on the switch and the other end to the SFP port on the other device. Since SFP connectors are keyed, the cable can be attached in only one orientation.
Installation Guide Switch Management The RJ-45 Console port on the front panel of the switch is used to connect a console device to the switch for out-of-band console configuration. The console device can be a PC or workstation running a VT-100 terminal emulator, or a VT-100 terminal.
