Unanswered Question
Feb 2nd, 2007

Looking to verify the following:

I currently have a 6509 chassis(non-E). Can I install the high speed fan tray, sup720-3b, and 6748 10/100/1000 line cards, and 220volt 2500 watt power supply?

I have this problem too.

Yes you can. We have this setup in our data centre at present. Make sure you end up with the right fan as it is a different part number from the 6509-E chassis.

I think you need to be careful. That configuration can have several problems. If you have a TAC account use the Cisco Power Calculator to see for yourself. If you use the 2500W power supply you will need 2 and they will not be redundant if you fill too many slots up with the WS-X6748 line cards...


Also SFP card draw more power ehn the SFP modules are used. DFC matters as well... You should really check your exact configuration out first... IMHO...
