Site Preparation Guide for VSP G/F350, G/F370, G/F700, G/F900

Part Number

The storage system requires two easily accessible power outlets near the rear of each controller. Each drive tray requires an additional power outlet.

The storage system controller and drive trays are equipped with two fully redundant wide-ranging power supplies that automatically accommodate voltages to the AC power source. The power supplies operate within the range of the storage system model:
  • VSP F350 and VSP F370 or VSP G350 and VSP G370: single phase 100-120 VAC or 200-240 VAC
  • VSP F700 or VSP F900 and VSP G700 or VSP G900: single phase 200-240 VAC
The power supplies meet standard voltage requirements for both domestic (inside USA) and international (outside USA) operation. When connecting to an AC source, be sure the current does not exceed the rating of the power source circuitry. This includes cabling, power distribution units, filters, and any other components through which the main AC flows.

These requirements must be added to the power demands of any other electrical devices installed in the rack to arrive at a total power consumption figure. In addition, surge currents must be accommodated. Disk drives normally consume twice the amount of current at startup as they do during steady-state operation.
