## Calculating AC 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 of the two input ratings for the PSM is suitable for various configurations. 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.

We recommend that you provision power according to the maximum input current listed in the power system electrical specifications.

Use the following procedures to calculate the power requirement:

1. Calculate the power requirement.
2. Evaluate the power budget.
3. Calculate input power.
4. Calculate thermal output (BTUs) for cooling requirements.

To calculate the AC power requirements:

1. Calculate the power (usage) using the values (see MX2008 AC Power Requirements).
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 1 lists the three-phase delta and wye feed requirements, maximum input and output power per PSM, and power efficiency.

3. To calculate necessary input power for three-phase delta AC PDM, follow the procedure below (see Figure 1).

AC PSM VIN=200-240 single phase:

1. Two AC PSMs are connected in parallel between two lines.
2. Nominal value of input current for one AC PSM is 2800 W / 200 V = 14 A.
3. Nominal input current for two AC PSMs is 2 * 14 A = 28 A.
4. Nominal value of line current is 28 A * √3 = 48.5 A.
5. Current rating for input 1 is 50 A.
6. Only one AC PSM is connected between two lines.
7. Nominal value of input current for one AC PSM is 2800 W / 200 V = 14 A.
8. Nominal value of line current is 14 A * √3 = 24.5 A.
9. Current rating for input 2 is 25 A.
4. To calculate necessary input power for three-phase wye AC PDM, follow the procedure below (see Figure 2).

AC PSM VIN=200-240 single phase:

1. Two AC PSMs are connected in parallel between two lines and neutral.
2. Nominal value of input current for one AC PSM is 2800 W / 200 V = 14 A.
3. Nominal input current for two AC PSMs is 2 * 14 A = 28 A.
4. Nominal value of line current is 28 A.
5. Current rating for input 1 is 28 A.
6. Only one AC PSM is connected between two lines and neutral.
7. Nominal value of input current for one AC PSM is 2800 W / 200 V = 14 A.
8. Nominal value of line current is 14 A.
9. Current rating for input 2 is 14 A.
5. Calculate thermal output (BTUs). Multiply the input power requirement (in watts) by 3.41 as shown in Table 2.

## Calculating DC Power Requirements for MX2008 Routers

Note

The MX2008, MX2010, and MX2020 routers support the same power modules (AC/DC PSMs and AC/DC 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 3.

We recommend that you provision power according to the maximum input current listed in the power system electrical specifications (see MX2008 DC Power (-48 V) System Electrical Specifications and DC Power (240 V China) Circuit Breaker Requirements for the MX2000 Router).

Use the following procedures to calculate the power requirement:
