Dell offers a variety of peripheral products that complement our PowerConnect switches. From redundant power supplies to fiber transceivers, our peripheral products deliver enhanced availability and extended network distances.

Stacking Module Kit

Dell PowerConnect Stacking Module

  • PowerConnect's Stacking Module Kit offers simplified management of network switches. When deployed the optional stacking module allows network administrators to manage multiple PowerConnect 3324 and 3348 switches as a single system. The stacking module is designed for insertion into the second Gigabit Ethernet port of the 3300 series switches and allows these switches to be stacked up to 192 Fast Ethernet ports or up to six switches (whichever is less). Any combination of PowerConnect 3324 and 3348 switches can be interchangeably stacked together. The Stacking Module Kit comes complete with a stacking module and a one meter stacking cable.

Fiber Transceivers
  • SFP Transceivers  - Dell offers Dell SFP Transceivers for use in the PowerConnect 2600, 3000, 5000, and 6000 series. SFP transceivers allow you to deploy fiber and stretch the distance of your network beyond the standard 100m that copper cabling limits you to. These SFP transceivers offer distances of up to 10km (LX model using single-mode cable). Dell SFP transceivers are offering both 1000BaseSX and 1000BaseLX and use an LC connector.

Redundant Power Supplies
  • PowerConnect RPS-60
    PowerConnect's RPS-60 offers improved reliability for the network administrator who needs maximum uptime. The RPS-60 provides redundant power for select PowerConnect 2000 Series products and eliminates the switch power supply as a single point of failure. The RPS-60 supports one PowerConnect switch and mounts on the rear of the switch saving precious space. Mounting kit and power cables included.
  • PowerConnect RPS-600
    PowerConnect's RPS-600 offers enterprise-class redundant power for select PowerConnect 3000 and 5000 Series products. The RPS-600 eliminates the switch power supply as a single point of failure and supports up to four PowerConnect switches. In the unlikely event a switch power supply should fail, the RPS-600 will supply power to the connected switch and keep the switch powered on. Each connected switch is supported by one of the RPS-600's four 150W power supplies. Front-panel LEDs indicate that the unit is either in stand-by or is powering a switch with a failed power supply. The RPS-600 is rack-mountable and consumes only 1 rack-unit of space. Power cables to support up to four switches and rack mounting kit are included.
