|The 8700 Watt (W) enhanced AC power supply for Cisco ® Catalyst ® 6500 Series Switches (Figure 1) is a triple AC input power supply with remote restart capability. The 8700W enhanced AC power supply is designed for the 6-, 9-, and 13-slot Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch chassis. A Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch configured with the 8700W enhanced AC power supply will support up to 420 IEEE 802.3af Class 3 (15.4W) Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices with full redundancy in a single chassis, providing superior PoE scalability. A Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch along with the 8700W enhanced AC power supply is PoE plus ready with ability to support up to 1750W of power per slot.|
The 8700W enhanced AC power supply provides the ability to remotely power cycle or shut down Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches for maintenance using Normally Open (NO) or Normally Closed (NC) built-in external relay contacts using a front-panel terminal block interface. The power supply relay contacts can be controlled through any appropriate third-party relay controller.
