About AC power requirements

When working with an AC-powered VIPRION® platform, it is important to understand the AC power options and requirements.

About AC power cables

The power cable supplied with the hardware is a 125V high-line input cable. This type of cable requires a NEMA 5-15R wall outlet or a region-specific equivalent. Region-specific power cables are available from F5® Networks.

Note: The power cables included with this unit are for exclusive use with this unit and should not be used with other electrical appliances.

AC power redundancy provisioning

This VIPRION® platform supports up to two AC power supplies. The power supplies are auto-ranging 100-240VAC (low/high line) input, and can supply 800W output power. The fan tray is provisioned to draw up to 100W, and each blade slot is provisioned for 350W. One power supply can support one or two B2000 Series blades, plus the fan tray with no redundancy. If redundancy is desired in any configuration, add the second power supply. This table shows some of the possible blade and power supply redundancy configurations.

    No redundancy 1 + 1 redundancy

AC platform power consumption (low-line input)

The actual amount of power draw from the AC source depends on the type and number of blades, as well as the power supply AC source voltage and redundancy configuration. This table shows possible configurations for low-line voltage, and the typical and maximum power draw.

DC power requirements

When working with a DC-powered VIPRION® 2200 platform, it is important to understand the DC power options and requirements.

The platform supports up to two hot swappable DC power supplies. One power supply powers a chassis that contains zero to four blades, with no redundancy. Two power supplies power a chassis with any blade configuration, with full redundancy.
