UK Power Cables for WS-CAC-3000W (and above)

Unanswered Question

I can't seem to find a UK power cable for the WS-CAC-3000W (or anything higher-powered). The 1300W option uses part number CAB-7513ACU. But this is not listed in the Power Supply Specifications appendix of the Catalyst 6500 Series Switches Installation Guide as for use with the 3000W PSU.

Does this mean these higher-powered PSUs are not suitable for use in the UK?

Thanks for the reply, but no. Sadly this only seems to confirm that UK power cables are not available.

I can't really believe this - surely these are supported in the UK?

Please check my last post, I have included the part number for power cable to be used in Europe for the 3000W power supply.

The part number is CAB-AC-2500W-EU for the WS-CAC-3000W power supply for the europe.

I have just check it in configuration tool and CAB-AC-2500W-EU is the correct part number.

HTH,Please rate if it does.

The rest of the EU uses a different power connector from the UK and Ireland. In router terms they would use CAB-ACE, whereas we would need the CAB-ACU.

There is a UK power lead specified for the 1300W.

I've finally got an answer through from our Cisco SE.

The 3000W and above PSUs draw more than 13A (which is the maximum for a normal UK connector) - so we need to ask our customer to provide a international feed. Could be tricky.

Thanks for your inputs.
