# Calculating High-Voltage Second-Generation Universal Power Requirements for MX2008 Routers

**Note**

The MX2008, MX2010, and MX2020 routers support the same power modules AC, DC, 240 V China, and universal PSMs and PDMs.

The information in this topic helps you determine which PSMs are suitable for various configurations, as well as which PSMs are not suitable because output power is exceeded. You determine suitability by subtracting the total power draw from the maximum output of the PSMs. Afterward, you calculate the required input current. Finally, you calculate the thermal output. A sample configuration is provided in Table 1.

We recommend that you provision power according to the maximum input current listed in the power system electrical specifications (see MX2000 Router High-Voltage Universal (HVAC/HVDC) Power Subsystem Electrical Specifications and High-Voltage Universal (HVAC/HVDC) Power Circuit Breaker Requirements for the MX2000 Router).

Use the following procedures to calculate the power requirement:

- Calculate the power requirement.
- Evaluate the power budget.
- Calculate input power.
- Calculate thermal output (BTUs) for cooling requirements. High-Voltage Universal (HVAC/HVDC) Power Circuit Breaker Requirements for the MX2000 Router.

The MX2008 DC power system provides power to the FRUs in the chassis (seeTable 1 for information about power). Each power system is made up of two DC PDMs, nine PSMs, ten MPCs, two fan trays, eight SFBs, and two RCBs.

When calculating power requirements, be sure that there is adequate power for the system.

Table 1: MX2008 Power System Sample Configuration

Chassis Power Configuration | Power Distribution Modules (PDMs) | Power Supply Modules (PSMs) | Description |
---|---|---|---|

2 PSMs, 2 RCBs, 8 SFBs, and 2 fan trays (no line cards installed) | PDM 0 and 1 | 2 PSMs | The power consumed by RCBs and SFBs is 100 W each. The power consumed by 2 RCBs and 8 SFBs is 1 KW. The power consumed by fan trays The total Kilowatts of power consumed is 4.0 KW. |

10 Line cards | PDM 0 and 1 | 5 PSMs | Each line card consumes up to 1 KW. One PSM is needed for every set of 2 line cards. |

| PDM 0 and 1 | 9 PSMs | This provides |

- Calculate the power requirements (usage) using the values
in MX2008 High-Voltage Second-Generation Universal Power Requirements as shown in Table 2.

- Evaluate the power budget, including the budget for each
configuration if applicable, and check the required power against
the maximum output power of available PDM options.
Table 3 lists the PSMs, their maximum output power, and unused power (or a power deficit).
