Power

Hot-plug PSUs: 1600W or 1100W AC in 1+1 redundant or 2+0 non-redundant configurationsUp to six 3000W high-efficiency power supplies, six 2700W high-efficiency power supplies or up to six -48V DC 2700W power supplies.
Based on Dell’s Energy Smart technologies, the M1000e power supplies deliver greater levels of efficiency, even at low levels of utilization. Supported power supply configurations include:
• 3+3 and 2+2 (grid redundancy)
• 2+1, 3+1, 4+2, and 5+1 (power supply redundancy)
• 2+0 and 3+0 (non-redundant mode)
The M1000e chassis supports dynamic power supply engagement (DPSE) mode, which if enabled, puts lightly loaded power supplies into standby mode, driving up the utilization and the efficiency of the active supplies. Dell supports either 110–120V or 208–240V AC power supply input and supports a wide range of power distribution options. Dell recommends 208–240V AC for all production environments.
