Power Cord Requirements for AC-Powered Switches and AC Power Supplies

An AC power cord is not included with the AC power supply.

Power cords used with AC-powered switches or with Summit AC power supplies must meet the following requirements:
  • The power cord must be agency-certified for the country of use.
  • The power cord must have an IEC320-C13 connector for connection to the switch or power supply.
  • The power cord must have an appropriately rated and approved wall plug applicable to the country of installation.
  • For cords up to 6 feet (2 m) long, the wire size must be 18 AWG (.75 mm2) minimum; over 6 feet, the minimum wire size is 16 AWG (1.0 mm2).

    The power cords for switches that use either the 1100 W or 715 W power supplies are keyed with a “notch” to ensure the proper orientation when plugged in. These cords are of 3x14 AWG.

You can purchase AC power cords for use in the US and Canada from Extreme Networks or from your local supplier.
