Technical Specifications

This appendix describes the technical specifications for the Cisco Nexus Fabric Extenders (FEXs) and includes the following sections:


Note Specifications for cables and connectors are provided in Appendix C, “Cable and Port Specifications.”


Power Specifications

This section describes the power specifications for the Cisco Nexus Fabric Extenders.

The power supplies connect directly to the system through connectors attached to the baseboard through cables. One connector is on the baseboard for each power supply. AC input is through an IEC connector mounted on the power supply port side exhaust panel. Table B-1 lists the specifications for the FEX power supplies.
