The FlexPoint Powered Chassis is a 19" rack-mount chassis that houses up to 14 standalone FlexPoint media converter modules. The redundant power supplies are essential where reliability is important, and in mission-critical applications to ensure continuous operation.
Both of the universal AC or DC power supplies are hot-swappable and can be used in any combination. In case of a failure, a power supply can be hot-replaced while the second power supply supports the operation of the chassis.
The power control logic of the Powered Chassis provides loadsharing between the power supplies, increasing reliability and operational lifetime. The control logic provides power monitoring and an LED display for each supply in order to assist in status monitoring, rapid fault-isolation and network management.
The 14-Module Powered Chassis supports any combination of FlexPoint media converter modules which are individually secured and hot-swappable to ensure continuous operation.
