ECUTS-16000 Power Consumption and Dissipation

Version:
    Last Modified: March 29, 2021

    When adding components to the ECUTS-16000, consider the total power consumption and dissipation budget.

    The maximum allowable input current is limited to 16 A, so power consumption is dependent on the operating voltage. For example:

    • 200 V * 16 A = 3,200 W
    • 230 V * 16 A = 3,680 W
    • 240 V * 16 A = 3,840 W

    The following list indicates the maximum power that can be dissipated inside the ECUTS-16000 for a given ambient temperature with the lowest rated components installed. Additional power beyond the rated levels can be passed to components located externally to the ECUTS-16000.

    The ambient temperature ratings and power dissipation limitations in the following list does not guarantee the thermal performance of components in the ECUTS-16000, only that the ECUTS-16000 contains adequate cooling capacity to provide the rated internal rack the ambient temperature needed to support properly rated and installed components. Ensure individual components installed in the ECUTS-16000 are within their specified operational ranges.

    Caution  

    Must be used only with certified components having ambient ratings that fall within the maximum internal air temperature ratings of the following list.

    Attention  

    Doit être utilisé uniquement avec des équipements certifiés dont les valeurs nominales ambiantes correspondent aux valeurs maximales de température de l'air interne figurant dans le tableau suivant.

    Note  

    All components inside the ECUTS-16000 must be powered directly, or indirectly, through the power entry panel.

    • 23 °C Ambient: 3,790 W
    • 28 °C Ambient: 3,400 W
    • 40 °C Ambient: 1,350 W

    The power dissipation for each subsystem is dependent on configuration and usage. The table below shows the maximum power of each subsystem in the ECUTS-16000.
