Supported Power Cords and Plugs

Each power supply has a separate power cord. Standard power cords or jumper power cords are available for connection to a power distribution unit having IEC 60320 C19 outlet receptacles. The jumper power cords, for use in cabinets, are available as an optional alternative to the standard power cords.

The standard power cords have an IEC C19 connector on the end that plugs into the power supplies. The optional jumper power cords have an IEC C19 connector on the end that plugs into the power supplies, and an IEC C20 connector on the end that plugs into an IEC C19 outlet receptacle.


Note Only the regular power cords or jumper power cords provided with the chassis are supported.


Table B-3 lists the power cords for the Cisco UCS 6100 Series Fabric Interconnects and provides their lengths in feet and meters.
