The hardware specifications list was valid at the time this manual was published. The listed components are subject to change at any time, as Barracuda Networks may change hardware components due to technological advancements. Therefore, the list may not reflect the current hardware configuration of the Barracuda appliance it was delivered with.

Dual Power Supply Connector and P-Fail relay (6-PIN connector)

F183R appliances are equipped with a 6-pin connector, for connecting two external power supplies and an alarm device in case of failure. The appliance can run with one or two external power supplies.

As F183R comes with dual power and P-fail relay features, the P-Fail relay will have the signaling device triggered as the power supply fails. The relay circuit is set to be open by default and closed when either or neither of the powers is detected; the closed (or short) circuit then allows the alarm device to be activated. Please note that the alarm device needs its own power circuit.

LEDs and Acoustic Signals

Your appliance is equipped with a variety of LEDs and acoustic signals. The front panel contains one power LED (green), one status LED (greed/red), one disc LED (yellow), and various port LEDs. Two acoustic signals indicate appliance boots up or installation was completed.
The Status LED is labeled either with a heartbeat symbol or the term 'Status'. It indicates the appliance’s operational state by changing colors between green and red and by changing between blinking and steady glowing. The tables below show the different meanings of the different glowing states and acoustic signals:

LED ColorStatusMeaning InstallationMeaning Operation

All LED Off

After a hotfix installation, the LED turns to red until the next reboot in case the hotfix installation failed. This feature requires firmware 7.1.3 or higher OR 7.2.2 or higher.

Appliance is halted and may be disconnected, or an error occurred preventing the appliance from entering the up state.
