I'm working on calculating the BTUs generated by a 6509 for a new IDF buildout and I'm trying to determine how the Cisco Power Calculator calculates it's values. With all of the blades I put in, POE load, and redundant 6000 Watt Power supplies, the Calculator says that there is a total output power of 5348.67 Watts, a Typical Power Output of 4278.93 Watts and a heat dissipation of 9154.08 BTU/Hr. If I do this manually and say 5348.67 Watts * 3.413 Btu/ Watt =18,255 BTU/ Hr
Where does this discrepancy come from?
Also what is the difference between Total Output Power vs Typical Power Output?
