Suppose I have a 3 member stack of 3750x switches. Members a, b and c.
I have all 3 members stacked with all 3 *data* stacking cables in a daisy-chain topology. The 50 cm data stacking cable from switch a (on the very top) to switch c (on the very bottom) just barely reached.
Of course, that means the 30 cm *power* stacking cable didn't reach between a & c. Right now, the power stacking cable goes from a to b, and then another cable from b to c. Leaving me with a useless extra 30 cm power stacking cable.
My question is, can switch "a" receive power from switch "c" through switch "b"? Is this just a big electrical "bus"? What if the power supply in switch "b" is removed?
Just wondering if there is a need for me to get a longer power stacking cable (one of the 150 cm power stacking cables). Would there be any benefit? Is only a certain amount of power shareable through each power stacking cable?
