Six AC power cords supply power to the six power supplies of a stand-alone SPARC M8-8 or SPARC M7-8 server. These server power cords connect the rear IEC 60320-C19 AC inputs to your facility AC power sources.
To ensure the redundant operation of the power supplies, connect the server power cords to alternate power sources. For example, connect server power cords from AC inputs labeled AC0, AC2, and AC4 to one power source and from AC inputs labeled AC1, AC3, AC5 to another power source. When connected to alternate power sources, the server has 2N redundancy in case of a power failure to a single power source.
Region-specific server power cords are available for different locales.
