About PWR-C45-4200ACV

Product overview

The Cisco PWR-C45-4200ACV is one of the various power supplies options offered to provide the required Power over Ethernet (PoE) scale on the Cisco catalyst 4500 E series platform. It requires a single phase source AC and the operating voltage ranged between one hundred volts (100 V) and two hundred and forty volts (240 V) of alternating current, AC. It supplies up to 4200 W for both data and voice PoE.

Technical specifications

The PWR-C45-4200ACV has compatibility with the following 4500 E series switches; Catalyst 4503-E, 4506-E, 4507R-E, 4510R-E, 4507R+E and 4510R+E. the minimum Cisco IOS software release required being 12.2 (25) EWA. There are four versions for the Power over Ethernet (PoE); Cisco Catalyst 4500 Prestandard PoE, 802.3af-compliant PoE (@ 15W), 802.3at-compliant PoE + (@ 30W), and Universal PoE (UPOE) (@ 60W). The maximum kVA rating is 5.25 kVA with a minimum holdup time of 20 milliseconds (Ms).

Power specifications

The Cisco PWR-C45-4200ACV input Power Supply has a Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) is rated 331,945 hours. The PWR-C45-4200ACV has an output redundant mode of 3700 W (at 220 V) and 1850 W (at 110 V). It dissipates heat at 3580 BTU/hr. The power supply output capacity of the PWR-C45-4200ACV is dependent on the number of AC power cables (1 or 2) attached, the source AC voltage (110 VAC or 220 VAC) applied, and the number of power switches switched on or off. Therefore, it can supply power at four (4) different operations with different combinations of power cords and the applied source AC voltage to the supply inputs as follows; 1050 W operation (with one 110 VAC nominal input,) 2100 W operation (with two 110 VAC nominal input,) 2100 W operation (with one 220 VAC nominal input) and 4200 W operation (with two 220 VAC nominal input). The AC input frequency being 50 / 60 Hz.
