About the superdome's BPS and Cell board

If I have a SD with four Cell boards, how many BPS I need to install into SD ?

Thanks

Rambo,

Six - a SD cabinet always has 6 BPSs whether you have 1 or 8 cells installed - you actually can't order the BPSs separately like you can on the smaller cell based systems - it's all part of the SKU for the cabinet.

The system can survive on 5 of the 6, but really you should always have 6.

Thanks for the reply . Because someone told me that the cell board number is associated with the BPS number .

Refer to this link :

it claimed to have 6 BPS. N+1 power shelf assembly is called the Front End Power Subsystem (FEPS). The redundancy of the FEPS is achieved with 6 internal Bulk Power Supplies (BPS), any five of which can support the load and performance requirements.
