Calculating Power Requirements for the SRX5600 Services Gateway

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

We recommend that you provision power according to the maximum input current listed in the power supply electrical specifications (see SRX5600 Services Gateway AC Power Supply Specifications and SRX5600 Services Gateway DC Power Supply 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.

Both normal-capacity and high-capacity SRX5600 chassis with DC power supplies are zoned, meaning that certain components are powered by specific power supplies (see Table 1 for information on zoning). When calculating power requirements, be sure that there is adequate power for each zone.

For an AC-powered chassis, there is one overall zone. Two AC power supplies are mandatory for high-line power, and three AC power supplies are mandatory for low-line power.

The SRX5600 Services Gateway chassis with AC power supplies has one overall zone. Two AC power supplies are mandatory for high-line power, and three AC power supplies are mandatory for low-line power.

Sample configuration for SRX5600 Services Gateway chassis with SRX5K-SCB (SCB1) and SRX5K-RE-13-20 (RE1):

  • SRX5K-SPC-4-15-320 (SPC2) Services Processing Cards (SPCs).

  • Switch control boards (SCBs) with one Routing Engine installed in SCB 0 and SCB 1.

  • SRX5K-40GE-SFP I/O card (IOC).

  • High-capacity cooling system

    Note:

    The high-capacity cooling system satisfies cooling requirements of SPC2 and must be used for proper cooling.

  1. Calculate the power requirements (usage) as shown in Table 2.

    Zone 1 total: 2360 W

  2. Evaluate the power budget. In the case of a DC-powered chassis, evaluate the budget for each zone. In this step, we check the required power against the maximum output power of available power supply options.

    Note:

    The power for the cooling system comes from a different tap on the power supply, reserved for the cooling system only. The cooling system power requirement does not need to be deducted from the output power budget of the power supply.

    Table 3 lists the power supplies, their maximum output power, and unused power (or a power deficit) for an AC-powered services gateway. Table 4 lists the power supplies, their maximum output power, and unused power (or a power deficit) for an DC-powered services gateway.

    1 For this configuration, zone 0 power requirement is 1360 W.

    2 For this configuration, zone 1 power requirement is 2360 W.

  3. Calculate input power. In this step, the input power requirements for the example configuration are calculated. To do this, divide the total output requirement by the efficiency of the power supply as shown in Table 5.Here we include the power drawn by the cooling system.

    Note:

    Normal-capacity AC and DC power supplies are not included in the following table, because their power budget was exceeded in the sample configuration.

    1 These values are at full load and nominal voltage.

  4. Calculate thermal output (BTUs) for the system. To calculate this value, multiply the total input power requirement (in watts) by 3.41 as shown in Table 6.

    SRX5600 DC high-capacity

    3960 * 3.41 = 13,503 BTU/hr

  2. Evaluate the power budget. In the case of a DC-powered chassis, evaluate the budget for each zone. In this step, we check the required power against the maximum output power of available power supply options.

    Note:

    The power for the cooling system comes from a different tap on the power supply, reserved for the cooling system only. The cooling system power requirement does not need to be deducted from the output power budget of the power supply.
