Power
Configuration
M1000e Power
• Up to six 2700 watt PSU’s may be
installed.
– 94%+ AC/DC Conversion Efficiency.
• PSUs operates on 200-240v AC
power.
– Though supported, use of 110-120v AC
power not recommended
– Update CMC if using 110-120v AC
– Dell does not support the mixing of
230V and 115V within the same
enclosure.
• Active PSUs are load sharing.
• Total system redundant power is
approximately 8100w in a 3+3 power
supply configuration.
• AC redundancy is supported in the
following configurations, each of
which requires the power supplies in
slots 1, 2, and 3 to be connected to a
different grid as compared to those in
slots 4, 5, and 6.
Turn On System
Press the power button on the enclosure. The power indicator
should light.
Turning On Blades
Press the power button on each blade, or power on the blades using
the systems management software.
Advanced
Power
Management
M1000e Power Subsystem
The M1000e ships with a minimum of three PSUs in a non-redundant
configuration.
 Three PSUs needed to power a full chassis
 For redundancy, a minimum of four PSUs recommended
 Dell recommends fully populating the enclosure with six PSUs.
AC Redundancy Configurations
Dual Power Grid:
• Protects against failure to an AC grid
• Protects against failure to up to 3 power supplies
Power Supply Redundancy Configuration
Dual or Single Power Grid:
• Power Supply Redundancy protects against failure to a single power
supply.
No Redundancy Configuration
Single Power Grid:
• No protection against grid or power supply failure
Module Summary
• After completing this module you should now be able to:
– Describe the steps to safely install an M1000e.
– Identify hot swappable components.
– Describe the power specifications associated with the M1000e
enclosure.
– Understand how to power on both the M1000e enclosure and the blade
servers.
– Describe the various M1000e power options, including redundant and
non-redundant AC grids and power supplies configurations.
