An AC-powered installation must meet these requirements:
The power requirements for the chassis are: 200-240 VAC ~, 50-60 Hz 16A Per Cord, Max 32 A total.
A VIPRION® DC-powered installation must meet these requirements:
The power requirements for the chassis are: 44-72 VDC, 62 A Per Cord, Max 124 A total.
This information applies to the Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS) version of the VIPRION 4800 Series platform.
This equipment meets NEBS requirements per GR-63-CORE.
This equipment is suitable for installation in these locations:
The VIPRION® 4800 platform ships with a rack mount kit to help install the large system more easily. This kit requires that the rack or cabinet has certain clearances and spacing, as shown here:

The system installation needs to consider the power and air flow specifications of all installed equipment to ensure proper cooling. Although the maximum specifications for the VIPRION® 4800 chassis are listed here, the actual power and airflow vary depending on how the system is configured, the operating load, and the operating environment.
|Max airflow||~2200 cfm|
When you install the platform into a rack, it is important to understand the unit’s airflow direction so that you can ensure proper cooling.
The platform employs a negative pressure fan system, which draws cold air in from the front of the chassis and exhausts hot air out the back of the chassis.
