T1600 Three-Input 240-A DC Power Supply Description

 

T1600 Three-Input 240-A DC Power Supply

Each three-input 240-A DC power supply weighs approximately 25 lb (11.3 kg) and consists of three inputs, three 80-A circuit breakers, a fan, and LEDs to monitor the status of the power supply. Figure 1 shows the three-input 240-A DC power supply.

T1600 Three-Input 240-A DC Power Supply Inputs

The three-input 240-A DC power supply inputs are labeled INPUT 0, INPUT 1, and INPUT 2, from top to bottom. Each input consists of –48 VDC and return—each with its own 80-A circuit breaker. The input mode switch on the faceplate allows you to set the DC power supply to either 2-INPUT or 3-INPUT mode. 3-INPUT mode is required for the T1600 Core Router.

Table 1 describes which components are powered by each input.

T1600 Three-Input 240-A DC Power Supply Load Sharing and Fault Tolerance

When the T1600 router is operating normally and both power supplies are switched on, load sharing between them occurs automatically. When one power supply fails or is turned off, the other power supply immediately assumes the entire electrical load for the system. A single power supply can provide full power for as long as the router is operational. At least one power supply needs all three inputs, INPUT 0, INPUT 1 and INPUT 2 to function properly.
