Output effect: 600W
4
PL7720
Input voltage: 10-250VAC
Input current: 3A

Note: The plug-socket combination must be accessible at all times, because it serves as the main
disconnecting device.
For instructions on connecting DC power, see section 1.3.2.
1.2.3 Power Consumption
The PL7720 consumes up to 350W in operation.
1.2.4 Heat Dissipation
The PL7720 dissipates 1195 BTU per hour in operation.
1.2.5 Display
The display is a green LCD two lines high by 20 characters wide. The front-panel buttons are not
active.
1.2.6 Environmental Requirements
Operating temperature: 0C to 40C
Storage temperature: -20C to 70C
Operating humidity: 5% to 95% (non-condensing)
1.2.7 Reliability
The Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) is calculated to 40222 hours.
1.2.8 Interfaces
The PL7720 has a congurable set of interfaces. There are three module slots at the bottom on
the front of the unit. The leftmost slot (Management) is dedicated to management interfaces,
and always holds a dual-port module with Gigabit Ethernet interfaces with RJ45 connectors. The
management interfaces are described in section 1.2.8.1 below. The two remaining slots (Slot1
and Slot2) are used for channel interfaces, and can be equipped with various optional interface
modules, for different combinations of RJ45 (copper) or ber Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, with up
to four interfaces in each module.
1.2.8.1 Management Interfaces
Management interfaces are used to manage the PacketLogic system. The administration inter-
face (marked Admin) is used for connecting to the system using the PacketLogic Client for the
graphical interface or using SSH for the Command-Line Interface (CLI). The Admin interface can
also be used to send statistical data to an attached statistics storage system, and to interact with
5

Figure 1.2: Front-panel components on a PL7720 (example conguration)
integration software. The auxiliary interface (marked Aux) can be used to send statistical data to
an attached statistics storage system, and to interact with integration software.
In addition to the Ethernet management interfaces in the Management module bay, there is a
serial interface on the front panel marked Console. The console interface is used to connect to
the CLI using a serial connection.
The administration interface has an RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet connector marked Admin in the
Management module slot on the front panel of the unit. The administration interface is
used for administration using the PacketLogic Client or SSH.
The auxiliary interface has an RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet connector marked Aux in the Manage-
ment module slot on the front panel of the unit.
The console interface has a RJ45 serial connector on the front panel of the unit, located to
the left of the Management module slot. The console interface is a standard serial port with
the following settings:
Baud rate: 9600 for CLI, 115200 for BIOS output
Parity: None
Data bits: 8
Stop Bits: 1
1.2.8.2 Channel Interfaces
Channels are the interfaces connected to the network link(s) that are to be managed. Channel
interfaces are transparent and have no IP address. Channel interfaces come in pairs, with one
interface being internal (marked Int) and the other external (marked Ext) for each channel. The
interfaces are marked with the number of the channel (local to the module). Hence, a dual port
module can hold one channel, whereas a quad port module can hold two channels.
The interfaces are located on the front panel of the PL7720. The PL7720 has three module slots
for network interface modules, numbered 0-2 from left to right. The rst (leftmost) slot (module
0) always holds a dual-port module with the Admin and Aux interfaces (see section 1.2.8.1). The
remaining slots (modules one (1) and two (2)) can be equipped with the following options:
Dual (2) port RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet module, with or without bypass capability
Quad (4) port RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet module, with or without bypass capability
6
PL7720
Dual (2) port SX ber optic Gigabit Ethernet module, with bypass capability
The channels are identied according to their position. The rst channel in slot one (1) is named
Channel 1/1, the second channel in slot one is named Channel 1/2, the rst channel in slot two
(2) is named Channel 2/1, and so on.
1.2.8.3 Bypass
On channel interfaces with bypass capability, trafc will ow through the channel in case of
power loss or other malfunction. Ensure that this is in line with the policies to implement. A
strict rewall policy or external network redundancy implementations may imply that bypass
shall not be used.
For copper (RJ45) channels with bypass, installing correct cables in the interfaces is important,
because if the unit were to lose power, the auto-negotiation and auto MDIX functions run by the
system will no longer function (this does not apply to ber interfaces). To make sure the right
cables are used (cross-over/straight), cable the PacketLogic with the power off rst. If trafc
continues to ow through the box, the cables are correct.
1.2.9 Hard Drives
The PL7720 is equipped with dual 500GB SATA 3.5" hard drives, mounted in the HDD bays
located at the top of the front panel. The drives are mirrored for redundancy purposes.
1.2.9.1 Verifying RAID Status
In the CLI on the PL7720, under SystemAdministration, there is a menu called Manage software
raid. For a detailed description, see the PacketLogic Product Guide.
Selecting the option will provide status information on the RAID array and the included disks.
1.2.9.2 Replacing Hard Drives
If a disk needs to be replaced, rst check the RAID status (described above). If there is no option
to remove the selected disk from the array, the disk can be removed physically. If there is an
option to remove the selected disk from the array, select that option.
Note: Disk 1 is the left disk, disk 2 is the right disk.
When the disk is removed from the array, it can be physically removed to be replaced. To remove
a disk, pull the ejector latch until the disk ejects slightly from the bay, then pull the disk out.
Note: The ejector latch is only to be pulled to a low angle. When there is resistance, do not pull the latch
further. The disk is now ejected and can be pulled out.
1.3 Installation
This section describes installation of the PacketLogic unit.
The PacketLogic is intended for rack mounting in a standard rack, 19 inches wide.
1.3.1 Rack Mounting Considerations
The following must be considered for rack-mount installation of equipment:
7
PL7720
If the PacketLogic is installed in a closed rack or in a rack with other units, ensure that
the local temperature in the rack does not exceed the maximum recommended operating
temperature for any unit in the rack. Note: Closed racks and racks with multiple units installed
may have a higher local ambient temperature than the ambient temperature of the surroundings.
Ensure that there is airowin the rack to allowfor sufcient heat dissipation fromeach unit
installed in the rack. Ensure that installation of multiple units in a rack does not obstruct
fans or other airow openings in any of the installed units.
Ensure that units are mounted to avoid hazards due to uneven mechanical loading. This
includes ensuring that each unit is secured in the rack and that the rack itself is secured.
When a unit is installed in an empty rack, install it in the bottom position of the rack. When
a unit is installed in a partially lled rack, position the units from the bottom up with the
heaviest units at the bottom. Install stabilizing devices if provided with the rack.
Ensure that the power supply and overcurrent protection is dimensioned for the total con-
nected load before connecting equipment.
Ensure that reliable earthing is maintained for each unit in the rack.
1.3.2 DC Power Connection
1. Insert the DC cable connector into the connector slot on the DC power supply. The connec-
tor is designed to t only one way. Make sure the connector ts properly, and push all the
way in until the connector snaps into place.
2. Attach the BLACK ground wire to the ground pin on DC power source. Screw the connec-
tor snugly into place.
3. Attach the YELLOW

A

R48 volt wire to the

R48 volt pin on the DC power source.
