The storage system's input voltage is auto-adjusting for 100-120 (+6%) / 200-240 (-11%) VAC, 50-60 Hz power connections. Power is provided through two power supplies, one per controller.

For best practice, establish power redundancy by routing each power supply to independent PDUs and then routing the PDUs to separate external power sources on different branch circuits. This arrangement enables the storage system to continue operating if AC power is lost to one power supply.
Note: Multiple outlets in a PDU or power strip do not constitute an independent electrical source.
  1. Confirm that all power sources are off.
  2. Connect an AC power cable to the power receptacle on the rear of each controller.
  3. Route the power cables from each controller to separate PDUs, and then use the pre-installed tie wraps at each controller power receptacle to secure the power cables, as shown in the following figure.


  4. Connect the PDUs to separate external power sources on different branch circuits.
    Note: To prevent the storage system from being turned off by accident, make sure the external power sources are not controlled by a wall switch.
