ground connection is not required during normal operation. For these firewalls, skip
to Step 3 of the following procedure.
Remove the screw and star washer from the ground point
on the back of the firewall.
Crimp a 14AWG ground cable to a ring lug (cable and lug
not included), place the ring lug over the screw and star washer,
then replace the screw to attach the cable to the firewall. Torque
the screw to 25 in-lbs and then connect the other end of the cable
to earth ground.
Connect the DC connector from the power adapter into
the PWR 1 port on the firewall and tighten the connector nut to
secure the cable to the firewall.
The power adapter inputs for the PA-440, PA-450, and PA-460 are on the back panel of the device.
The power adapter inputs for the PA-415
Plug the AC connector from the power adapter into your
AC power source. After power is connected, the firewall powers on
as indicated by the green power LED next to the PWR 1 port. The
front PWR LED shows green when a functioning power adapter is connected.
(Optional for PA-415,
PA-450, and PA-460)
Connect the DC
connector from a second power adapter (purchased separately) into the PWR 2 port
and plug the AC connector into an AC power source.
For the PA-415,
and PA-460, connect the
second power adapter through a different circuit breaker to provide
power redundancy and to allow for electrical circuit maintenance.
On the PA-440, PA-450, and PA-460, the control check on the power supply
can detect if a connection is present but does not check for voltage. As
a result, if the power cable is connected to the firewall but
disconnected from a power source, the system still reads the power
connection as inserted.
On some PA-440, PA-450, and PA-460 models, the
command in the CLI displays the status of
a second power supply when a second power supply is not connected.
Before powering on the firewall, ensure that you have connected your
Ethernet cables in accordance to the mode you wish to boot the firewall
in (standard mode or Zero Touch Provisioning mode) as specified in Set Up a Connection to the Firewall.
