T1600 Six-Input DC Power Supply Description

 

Power Supply Components

Each six-input DC power supply weighs approximately 39.7 lb (18.0 kg) and consists of six inputs, two blowers, a front and side air filter, and LEDs to monitor the status of the power supply. Each power supply is cooled by its own internal cooling system. Figure 1 shows the six-input DC power supply.

Note

There are no circuit breakers or passive fuses in the router.

Inputs

The six-input DC power supply inputs are labeled INPUT 0, INPUT 1, INPUT 2, INPUT 3, INPUT 4, and INPUT 5, from top to bottom. Each 60 A input consists of –48 VDC and return.

Table 1 describes which components are powered by each input.

Redundancy

When the 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.
