How to install 40G QSFP+ optical module?
The 40G QSFP+ optical module is a hot-swappable optical module with four independent optical signal sending and receiving channels, and it is mainly used for short-distance data transmission of switches, routers and data center equipment. Since 40G QSFP+ optical modules have higher density than 10G SFP+ optical modules, more and more people use this optical module in recent years, but do you really know how to install 40G QSFP+ optical modules? ZR Cable will give you some specific guidance in this article.
Since QSFP+ optical modules are static sensitive devices, we always wear an anti-static wrist strap or similar grounding device when installing QSFP+ optical modules. In addition, QSFP+ optical modules have a ring latch or a pull-tab latch, so this article provides installation procedures for both types of latches.
There are 8 steps to install a 40G QSFP+ optical module. The 8 steps are as follows:
Step 1: Wear the anti-static wrist strap on the correct grounding point on your hand or rack;
Step 2: Take out the QSFP+ optical module from its protective packaging;
Step 3: Check the label on the appearance of the QSFP+ optical module to confirm that the model of the optical module is correct.
Step 4: Remove the optical hole dust plug of the QSFP+ optical module and put it aside.
Step 5: Optical Module Installation with Bail Buckle:
A: Align the QSFP+ optical module vertically with the slot.
B: Align the QSFP+ optical module with the slot, and carefully slide the QSFP+ optical module into the slot until the optical module is in full contact with the slot.
Step 6: QSFP+ Optical Module Installation with Pull Tab:
A: Hold the optical module with the label facing up.
B: Align the QSFP+ optical module with the slot, and carefully slide the QSFP+ optical module into the handle until the optical module is in full contact with the slot.
Step 7: Press the exposed part of the QSFP+ optical module with your thumb, and completely fix the optical module in the slot.
Step 8: Reinstall the dust plug into the optical hole of the QSFP+ optical module until the optical fiber jumper is connected. Do not remove the dust plug until the optical fiber jumper is connected.
