Electrical Power Requirements

The Oracle Server X6-2 uses AC power. The following table lists the power supply specifications for the server.


Note -  The power dissipation numbers listed in the following table are the maximum rated power numbers for the power supply used in the system. The numbers are not a rating of the actual power consumption of the system. For up-to-date information about the power consumption, go to Oracle's Sun Power Calculators web site and click on the Oracle Server X6-2 link: http://www.oracle.com/us/products/servers-storage/sun-power-calculators/index.html
Table 5  Power Supply Specifications
Parameter
Specification
Voltage (nominal)
100 to 127 VAC; 200 to 240 VAC
Input current (maximum)
7.2 A @ 100-127 VAC; 3.4 A @ 200-240 VAC
Frequency (nominal)
50/60 Hz (47 to 63 Hz range)

The Oracle Server X6-2 can operate effectively over a range of voltages and frequencies. However, it must have a reliable power source. Damage to the server might occur if the ranges are exceeded. Electrical disturbances such as the following might damage the system:

  • Fluctuations caused by brownouts

  • Wide and rapid variations in input voltage levels or in input power frequency

  • Electrical storms

  • Faults in the distribution system, such as defective wiring

To protect your server from such disturbances, you should have a dedicated power distribution system, power-conditioning equipment, as well as lightning arresters or power cables to protect from electrical storms.

See the following sections for additional power specifications.
