  • Page 6: Product Overview

    For regulatory identification purposes, the A5500-24G-4SFP HI (2 slots) and A5500-48G-4SFP HI (2 slots) switches are assigned regulatory model numbers (RMN). These regulatory numbers should not be confused with the marketing names HP A5500, or product numbers JG311A and JG312A. This chapter describes the chassis panel views of the A5500 HI switches.

    Figure 10 Mounting the switch in the rack Mounting the switch on a workbench IMPORTANT: Ensure good ventilation and 10 cm (3.9 in) of clearance around the chassis for heat dissipation. • Avoid placing heavy objects on the switch. • To mount the switch on a workbench: Check that the workbench is sturdy and well grounded.
  • Page 16: Grounding The Switch

    Grounding the switch WARNING! Correctly connecting the switch grounding cable is crucial to lightning protection and EMI protection. The power input end of the switch has a noise filter, whose central ground is directly connected to the chassis to form the chassis ground (commonly known as PGND). You must securely connect this chassis ground to the earth so the faradism and leakage electricity can be safely released to the earth to minimize EMI susceptibility of the switch.

  • Page 25: Removing An Interface Card

    Removing an interface card CAUTION: Do not touch the surface-mounted components directly with your hands. • • If no new card is to be installed, install the filler panel to prevent dust and ensure good ventilation in the switch. To remove an interface card: Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap and make sure it makes good skin contact and is well grounded.
  • Page 26: Verifying The Installation

    To connect a CX4 or SFP+ cable to a port on a CX4/SFP+ interface card: Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap and make sure it makes good skin contact and is well grounded. Then unpack the dedicated SFP+ cable. Hold the connector at one end of the cable, with the pull latch on top. Orient the connector with the port and insert it into the port.
