HI

I have couple of these switches, but cannot find the power source for this. Does anyone know how I can power them up?

Regards

There should be a power socket in the back of the switch that you plug the AC power cord into.

Or am I misunderstanding the question?

Is there a small four-pin block in the location that the AC power connector would be?

If so, you've got a 2950G-24-DC. It has a DC power supply.

HI

Here are the images - There seems to be two types of connection at the back.

I think you are right donjohnson, in that case where do I get that from ? Why was it not supplied with the Switches?

Yep. As I suspected, while you may have a "2950G-24", what you actually have is a 2950G-24-EI-DC.

Here's the Hardware Installation Guide section on connecting the DC power.

HI

Thank you so much. I have been supplied with the 4 pin L-Shaped socket, I assume that goes into the socket.  So where are these cables fed into? I assume this is how the CISCO supplies them and its up to the user to install them in that way?

They would be connected to the DC power source (typically 48 vdc).
