Disclaimer: The Cisco Power Calculator is intended to be an educational resource and a starting point in
planning your power requirement; it is not a final recommendation from Cisco. This tool does not check for software
compatibility. To determine the power requirements and software most appropriate for your company we suggest you work
with a Cisco representative, Cisco channel partner or a solutions provider.

Power Supply Options Percentage Of Power Used


Three DC 2100W power supplies required with N+1 redundancy 41.27 %

Two DC 2100W power supplies required with NO redundancy 61.90 %

Total Output Current Total Output Power At 40C Total Typical Output Power Total Heat Dissipation At 40C

60.19 Amps 2600.00 Watts 1705.00 Watts 8866.00 BTU/Hr


NOTE :

Total Output Current - Total Output Current (amperes) allocated to the line cards and powered devices in the chassis.

Total Output Power At 40C - Total output power (P-Output) that the systems require from the power supply. From the power supply perspective, this
is the power out (P-output).

Total Typical Output Power - Power used at 27C ambient temperature with 50% linerate IMIX traffic.

Total Heat Dissipation At 40C - Heat dissipation is a direct function of power used. To get heat in BTU/hr, multiply the power draw in watts by 3.41.
Example the power calculator says that a given system draws 2800W. This means the system dissipates (2800*3.41 -->9548 BTU/hr)of heat.

Percentage of Power Used is color-coded with green if the power consumption is up to 80 percent, orange if the power consumption is between 81
and 90 percent, and red if between 91 and 100 percent.

NOTE :

Output Power is the amount of power delivered from the Power Supply to the ASR 9000 router. To figure Input Power, divide output power by 0.92
(conservative typical efficiency of the power supplies). Output Power and Heat Dissipation numbers computed by the Cisco Power Calculator are
maximum values and can be used for facility power and cooling capacity planning. These figures are not indicative of the actual power draw or heat
dissipation. Typical power draw is about 30% lower than the maximum value shown.
