What’s Inside

PARTS LIST:

  • 1 X MANAGED POWER SUPPLY
  • 2 X 12 AWG DC POWER CABLES
  • 1 X AC POWER CABLE
  • 1 X TEMPERATURE SENSOR WIRE KIT

 

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 4 X RACK MOUNTING SCREWS AND NUTS
  • PATCH CABLE TO CONNECT TO THE SWITCH FOR MANAGEMENT

 

* The kit has the supplies necessary to power the GBT-24-M up to a full 2,000 watts

General Installation

 Your new PoE injector is designed to be simple to install and set up.  You should only need at most a Philips head screw driver and a patch cable for the management console.

NOTE: The injector includes the screws for the rack wings, but it does not include the rack mounting nuts or screws.  So, you’ll want to grab some of those.

Rack Installation

The power supply comes pre-assembled with brackets for a 19″ rack configuration.  Please contact us if you need a different rack.  It DOES NOT come with the nuts and screws to mount the injector onto the rack.  You’ll need to get those.

Wiring the Power Supply

WARNING: THIS INVOLVES WIRING AC POWER AND SHOULD BE PERFORMED BY A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL.

SELECTING THE POWER SOURCE: This power supply can draw more than 2,000 watts of power.  A typical 15 amp, 120 VAC circuit breaker will trip at 1,800 watts.  If you just plug it into a regular 15 amp circuit with other lights and outlets, it will draw enough power to trip the breaker.  For a full lighting application, it requires a dedicated 20 amp circuit.

STEPS:

  • Ensure power is properly disconnected from the wiring to the device

            This may mean either keeping the included AC cable unplugged or shutting off the breaker to the circuit.

  • Connect the AC power to the AC input. 

“L” is typically a black wire

“N” is typically a wire wire

Ground is typically green

Tip: Use a small, flat head screw driver inserted into the small square hole to “open” the push-in connector before inserting the cable.  Once the cable is pushed all the way in, remove the screw driver to clamp onto the cable.  Test the connection by gently tugging the wiring.

 

 

Don’t forget to ground the cable and the power supply.

 

 Now you can wire the DC side of the power supply.

 

DO NOT CONNECT POWER TO THE DEVICE YET.

What do you do with a 3,000 watt 48-56 volt managed power supply? 

You power a midspan injector for lighting and automation: GBT-24-M

Configuration

You can configure the PS-53v3000w either through screen and controls on the device, though a webpage management tool, or even through an SNMP interface.

In this manual we’ll cover the details for the on-screen and web interface.  If you’d like to see the manual for the other configuration methods, you can find it here:

Web Management

CONNECTING TO THE CONSOLE

The PS-53v3000w has a web-based management interface that can be accessed through the console port on the front of the power supply.  Before you integrate it into your network, you will need to configure the device such as setting the date and time, IP address, and username and passwords.

First you need to connect the console port on the front of the power supply to a computer.  If you don’t have an ethernet port on your laptop, this works just fine with an ethernet to USB adapter.Then power on the power supply.  The settings will remain in the device even if you power it off and power it on again.

Now comes the techiest part of the process.  You will need to disconnect your computer for wifi and the internet.  I know this feels very dangerous, but it’s only for a moment.

I’m giving the instructions here for a Windows computer.  If you need help doing this on a MAC, simply go to YouTube and search on setting an fixed IP address for a MAC.  Then use the IP address information I give below. 

In Windows, navigate to your Network and Sharing Center.  If you don’t know how to get there, simply click on the Window button on the bottom left and type “Network and Sharing Center”.

When it comes up, you should see an ethernet connection.  If not, double check 1) you’re connected to the injector, and 2) the injector is powered on.Click on the ethernet connection.  It will bring up a dialog box.Click “Properties” on the bottom left.

In the next dialog box, look in the middle for “Internet Protocol Version 4”.  Click on it, then click “Properties” in the bottom right.  

Fill out the fields just like this.

Click: User the following IP address

IP Address: 192.168.1.20

Subnet Mask: Sets itself

Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1

 

Preferred DNS Server: 8.8.8.8

Alternate DNS Server: 4.2.2.2

Hit Okay to close this dialog, then Okay one more time.

I’ve tried not hitting okay the second time, and I couldn’t get it to connect.  So, make sure it hit okay to close out the two dialogs.

Then navigate to 192.168.1.190.  

The video below will take you through the rest of the configuration.
