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 220V high-line input cable. This type of cable requires a NEMA 6-20R 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 100-127VAC (low-line) to 200-240VAC (high-line) input, and can supply 1200W output power at low-line and 1400W output power at high-line. The fan tray is provisioned to draw up to 100W. Each slot is provisioned to draw up to 275W, if needed; therefore, one power supply with low-line input can support one, two, three, or four B2000 Series blades, plus the fan tray with no redundancy. The same supply with high-line input can also support up to four B2000 Series blades. If redundancy is desired in any configuration, simply add the second power supply at either low- or high-line input. This table shows some of the possible blade and power supply redundancy configurations.

DC power requirements

When working with a DC-powered VIPRION® 2400 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.
