    AC Power Supply in the NSM4000 Appliance

    An NSM4000 appliance ships with a single AC power supply module, shown in Figure 1. An additional AC power supply module can be installed to provide redundancy.

    Note: While it is possible to provide redundancy in the NSM4000 appliance using a combination of AC and DC power supply modules, we recommend that you do not provide redundancy in this manner. Instead, use two AC power supply modules or two DC power supply modules if you want to provide redundancy.
