In order to properly install the 0-57440- Ethernet Network Interface module for operation, we advise that you abide by the following steps. Begin by turning off all power to the rack, including any connections. Set the jumper for the appropriate logical slot. You can see the jumper by looking through the cutout that is present in the enclosure. After you set the jumper, you can insert the module into the slot that you want on your rack. You must use a screwdriver to secure it. Next, connect the transceiver cable to the 0-57440- Ethernet Network Interface module. After all of that is one, you can turn on the rack. When the power up diagnostic is finished, the green status indicator light will illuminate.
