    If available, you can use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect against power failures. Avoid UPS types that use ferroresonant technology. These UPS types can become unstable with systems such as the Cisco UCS 6200 Series Fabric Interconnect, which can have substantial current draw fluctuations because of fluctuating data traffic patterns.

  • Page 32: Cabinet And Rack Requirements

    Note Do not use racks that have obstructions (such as power strips), because the obstructions could impair access to field-replaceable units (FRUs). The Cisco RP series PDUs when mounted in a Cisco R Series Rack should not obstruct FRU replacement.
