Electrical Power Requirements

The server uses AC power. The values in the following table are the power supply specifications.

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 Power Calculators web site and click the Oracle Server X6-2L link: https://www.oracle.com/it-infrastructure/power-calculators/
Table 5  Power Supply Specifications
AC Requirement
Voltage (nominal)
100 to 127/200 to 240 VAC
Input current (maximum)
12 A–8.5 A @ 100–127 VAC
5.7 A @ 200–240 VAC
Frequency (nominal)
50/60 Hz (47 to 63 Hz range)

The Oracle Server X6-2L 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.

The following sections discuss specific power requirements.
