ACX2200 Power System

 

ACX2200 Power Overview

The power supply in an ACX2200 router is built along the front panel of the chassis, with AC inlets or DC power terminals on the front to connect power to the router.

Table 1 lists the power consumed by the ACX2200 router.

ACX2200 AC Power Specifications

Table 2 lists the AC power system electrical specifications.

Specification

AC input voltage

Operating range: 100 to 240 VAC

AC input line frequency

50 to 60 Hz (nominal)

AC system current rating

2 A (100 VAC) or 1 A (240 VAC)

Note

We recommend that you use a dedicated customer site circuit breaker rated for 2 A (100 VAC) or 1 A (240 VAC), or as required by local code. Doing so enables you to operate the router in any configuration without upgrading the power infrastructure.

ACX2200 AC Power Cord Specifications

Each AC power supply has a single AC appliance inlet that requires a dedicated AC power feed. Most sites distribute power through a main conduit that leads to frame-mounted power distribution panels, one of which can be located at the top of the rack that houses the router. An AC power cord connects each power supply to the power distribution panel.

You can order detachable AC power cords, each approximately 8 ft (2.5 m) long that supply AC power to the router. The C15 appliance coupler end of the cord, as described by International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard 60320, inserts into the AC appliance inlet coupler. The plug end of the power cord fits into the power source receptacle that is standard for your geographic location.

Table 3 provides specifications on the AC power cord provided for each country or region.

Warning

The AC power cord for the router is intended for use with the router only and not for any other use.

Warning

The attached power cable is only for this product. Do not use the cable for another product. Translation in Japanese follows:

Note

In North America, AC power cords must not exceed approximately 14.75 ft (4.5 m) in length, to comply with National Electrical Code (NEC) Sections 400-8 (NFPA 75, 5-2.2) and 210-52, and Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) Section 4-010(3). You can order AC power cords that are in compliance.

Caution

Power cords and cables must not block access to device components or drape where people could trip on them.

ACX2200 DC Power Specifications

The power supply in ACX2200 routers is built in along the front left panel of the chassis with DC power terminals to connect power to the router.

When the ACX2200 router are 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.

Note

When only one power supply is available on an ACX2200 router, we recommend that you connect both the power inputs to the same source. That is, connect both the DC power inputs of the ACX2200 router to the only available power supply. Doing so ensures that you get the maximum amount of hold-up time during a power failure.

ACX2200 routers support a wide range of voltage ranges as shown in Table 4.

Table 4: DC Power Electrical Specifications

DC input voltages

  • 20 to 30 VDC

  • –39 to –56 VDC

DC input currents

  • 10 A @ 24 VDC

  • 5 A @ –48 VDC

  • 4 A @ –60 VDC

Power supply output

200 W

Note

We recommend that you provide at least 10.5 A @ 24 VDC and use a facility circuit breaker rated for 10 A minimum. Doing so enables you to operate the router in any configuration without upgrading the power infrastructure, and allows the router to function at full capacity using multiple power supplies.
