RPS-500p Redundant Power Supply

The RPS-500p (model 10923) is a 500 watt DC power redundant power supply for use with Extreme 802.3at PoE-compliant stackable or standalone switches. The RPS-500p is a standalone unit that can be rack mounted in a standard 19-inch rack.

The power supply provides power backup to an Extreme stackable or standalone fixed switch. If for some reason the switch loses power from its internal power supply, the RPS-500p can provide up to 500 watts maximum operating power to support switch operation and the 55 VDC necessary to support 55 VDC/data connections to PDs (powered devices). The RPS-500p has one 2x7 power connector.

The power supply ships with the following:
  • AC power cord
  • RPS cable (1 meter long)
  • Four rubber feet (for flat surface installation)
  • Two rack mount brackets
  • Eight flathead screws (M3x6mm)
The RPS-500p is compatible with the following Extreme Networks switches:
  • Summit X440 switches (all models that are compatible with external power supplies)
  • Summit X450-G2 switches (non-PoE models)

The RPS-500p is compatible with both PoE and non-PoE switches.
