Chassis and Module Power and Heat Values
This appendix provides the power and heat numbers for the Catalyst 6500 series chassis and modules.
The following power requirements and heat dissipation tables are provided:
Chassis and fan
Policy Feature Cards
Distributed Forwarding Cards
Fast Ethernet switching
10/100 Ethernet switching
10BASE Ethernet switching
FlexWAN and Enhanced FlexWAN
Unless otherwise noted, the information in the following tables is measured under fully loaded
conditions (transceivers installed). Typical numbers are approximately 20 percent below the numbers
listed in these tables.
Module power is the output from the power supply (internal to the system). The AC-input power is the
input from the outlet to the power supply. The percentage difference between the two values is the
efficiency of the power supply.
