DCX-B Power Requirements

    Is there a way to tell from the CLI or Webtools if a DCX -B Switch is running at 110V or 220V ?

    Also is there a way to tell a Blade to power ratio on the DCX-B. Meaning how many power supplies or power is needed to run so many blades in the switch ?

    I know there is a little information n the hardware guide but its very vague .

    Thank you in advance .

    hi, as far as i know, there's no way to tell what is the current PS voltage.

    for the blade power consumption, use chassisshow command.

    The PSU's are auto-sensing and auto-adjusting.  If you refer to the FOS Release Notes, specifically the chapter entitled "Blade Support", it specifies the # of PSU's needed depending on your blade configuration and environmental power.

    Thanks for the response

    I believe Slotshow -p is a useful command as well.

    Also the RN is the same info from the hardware guide
