Installing CTP card in M6140 Director

Can I install a new CTP card in our M6140 director without powering it down? I can't find the power switch.

I believe the 6140 dont have a power switch. The Director Power is On when you Plug the Power Cord.

Only the 6064 have a Power On/Off switch

Not sure, i work last with 6140 appr. 5 Years ago.

Yes, all Part SBAR, FAN, Power Supply, Port Card and CTP can be replaced w/o shutdown.

By CTP Replacement, make sure the Standby CTP is runing and Active

When you remove the failed CTP wait 20-30 Second before insert the Replacement CTP board
