Re: rp8400 electric installation

Go to
http://docs.hp.com/en/hw.html#HP%209000%20rp8400%20Server

and download the Site Preparation Guide and Install Guide.

The Site Preparation Guide will have all the information about electric connections. The voltage depends mainly on what kind of electrical system you have. When the voltage is chosen, it will determine the amperage (if you're using 110 volts, you'll need roughly twice the amperage compared to using 220-240 volts).

You'll probably want several heavy-duty PDUs, especially if you want to use the fault-tolerant power configurations of the rp8400.

A rp8400 can have a maximum of four power inputs. If all are in use, it will keep running even if any two of them are lost. Obviously, you'll prefer to connect each through a separate fuse/breaker, so that tripping of one breaker will not disable more than one power input per server.

If you have 3-phase power, you might want to distribute the connections of the rp8400s to different phases so that even the loss of any one phase in your entire facility will not shut down the rp8400s.

Hi Medali,

Download Site Preparation Guide from the below link.

http://docs.hp.com/en/2465/a6093_96014.pdf

we would like to install two rp8400 servers in one rack. which PDU to use and how much ?

For each server two PDU's(60AMP each).

which câble to connect servers to PDU ?
It comes from HP. Server side(male connector) PDU side (female connector). 16AMP each

how much Ampere and Voltage should we give to each PDU ?

Typical maximum power dissipation for maximum processor, memory, disk, I/O configurations
3800 VA (3724 W)19A @200VAC
Marked Electrical for server 5,400 VA (30A @180VAC)
Marked Electrical per line cord 2700 VA (15A @180V

but besure what power standred you have in your country.
