  • Page 12 The power source is quasi-redundant because there are two AC input power modules for the Cisco RPS and one DC output power module for each external device. The AC input to the Cisco RPS is fully redundant, but the DC output to the external devices is not.
  • Page 13 Fully Redundant Configuration Fully Redundant Configuration The Cisco RPS can provide a fully redundant power source for two pieces of equipment. You can use a two-to-one cable to connect two external devices to the four DC output power modules, as shown in Figure 1-4. The two-to-one cable is a Y-shaped cable with two connectors at one end and one connector at the other end.
  • Page 14 The redundant-with-reboot configuration is shown in Figure 1-5, where a straight-through one-to-one cable connects an external device (the figure shows switches, but they could also be hubs) to the Cisco RPS while the device is simultaneously powered by its own internal power supply (the device AC power plug is connected).
  • Page 15 In this way, the Cisco RPS and external device internal power supply can be connected simultaneously. A sense circuit in the Cisco RPS reads that the device has its AC power connected and shuts the Cisco RPS output off. In this way competition between the power supplies is prevented.
  • Page 16 If the Cisco RPS fails or is disconnected, the external device will not power cycle because its internal power supply has not been disturbed. When both the Cisco RPS and internal power supply are powered, the LED on the Cisco RPS front panel and the RPS LED on the external device both blink green.
  • Page 17 You can mix quasi-redundant and fully redundant configurations. For example, two devices can be in quasi-redundant mode while one is in fully redundant mode (see Figure 1-6).
