The right LED (yellow) indicates that a signal is being trans-
mitted to the Ethernet. It uses an RJ-45 type connector.
Provides tapped-screw mounting holes for attaching a frame
ground lug and wiring.
Provides two sets of DC input barrier strip terminals. The
right-hand strip terminal is for the primary DC power
wiring; the left-hand strip terminal is for an optional backup
DC power source. The left screw terminal of each strip is for
–48 VDC; the right screw terminal is for the return path.
