How much power required to all card fit in 5000/6000 Chassis?

 Product and Software: This article applies to all 5000/6000 chassis.

In Aruba 5000/6000 chassis each card need certain amount of power and if that is not meet, the device will not come up.

Card    Description    Units    Power Consumption (Watts)
HW-FT    Aruba 5000 & 6000 Series Replacement Fan Tray    1    12
SC-48-C1    Aruba Supervisor Card I (48 AP Support)    1    40
SC-128-C1    Aruba Supervisor Card I (128 AP Support)    1    40
SC-256-C2    Aruba Supervisor Card II (256 AP Support)    1    40
M3mk1-128    Aruba Multi-Service Mobility Module Mark I, 10x 1000Base-X (SFP), 2x 10GBase-X (XFP), (128 AP Support)    1    130
M3mk1    Aruba Multi-Service Mobility Module Mark I, 10x 1000Base-X (SFP), 2x 10GBase-X (XFP), (0 AP Support)    1    130
LC-2G    Aruba 2xGE Line Card    1    40
LC-2G24F    Aruba 2xGE/24FE Line Card    1    40
LC-2G24FP    Aruba 2xGE/24 FE Line Card SPOE    1    40
Note: Aruba Chassis has three power slots and each power slot can have maximum of 400 watts of power supply unit. 400 * 3 = 1200 watts.

If we want to use 4 M3mk1 or M3mk1-128 which required 130 watts of power then for redundancy purpose one should have at least below:

1.400+400+200 = 1000 watts PSU in one 6000 chassis
2.400+400+400 = 1200 watts PSU in one 6000 chassis

CAUTION: If customer has any of below PSU then if any one fail all the M3 will go down and keep on rebooting because they are not getting enough power.

1.400+400 = 800 watts PSU in one 6000 chassis
2.400+200 = 600 watts PSU in one 6000 chassis
