T640 DC Power System Requirements

 

To allow for future growth so that you can operate the T640 router in any hardware configuration without upgrading the power infrastructure, we recommend that you provision the following per each input. Doing so enables you to operate the router in any configuration without upgrading the power infrastructure.

  • 68 A @ –48 VDC (nominal) for each power supply input on a two-input 160-A DC power supply

  • 67 A @ –48 VDC (nominal) for input 0 and 67 A @ –48 VDC for input 1 on a three-input 240-A DC power supply

  • 50 A @ –48 VDC (nominal) for each power supply input on a four-input 240-A DC power supply

  • 56 A @ –48 VDC (nominal) for each power supply input on a four-input 240-A DC power supply

If you do not plan to allow for future growth, you can use the information in Table 1 to calculate the typical power consumption @ –48 VDC and typical thermal output for your current hardware configuration. Table 1 lists the power requirements for various hardware components when the router is operating under typical voltage conditions.
