Before you get started with the VIPRION platform, it is important to understand the power options and requirements. This section describes AC power supply support and cable requirements.
The power cable supplied with the hardware is a 220V high line input cable. This type of cable requires a NEMA 6-20P wall outlet, or region-specific equivalent. For 115V VAC low line input, a different cable is available which uses a NEMA 5-20P, or region-specific equivalent. Region-specific power cables are available from F5 Networks.
The platform supports one to four AC power supplies. The power supplies are auto-ranging 90VAC to 240VAC input. Each slot is provisioned to draw up to 600W, therefore, one power supply with low-line input can support two blades with no redundancy, or the same supply with high-line input can support up to three blades.
Table 9.2 shows some of the possible blade and power supply redundancy configurations.
The actual amount of power draw from the AC source depends on the type and number of blades and the power supply AC source voltage and redundancy configuration. Tables 9.3 and 9.4 show several possible configurations and their typical and maximum power draw.

Empty chassis (3 blank cards, 0 power supplies, 0 blades, 1 fan tray, 1 System ID card): 69 lbs (31.3 kg)
Typical power draw (fully-loaded chassis)
To maintain the VIPRION platform, you must be familiar with additional specifications such as acoustic levels, airflow movement, and operational altitude for the VIPRION platform.
