Converting input power on a c7000 enclosure

Question from Meg on converting enclosure power:




I know you can order the c7000 with the 3 phase power module but if an existing chassis has single phase, is there a way to swap it out?  The part number is FIO only.  Do I need to go the service spare route?




Input from Frank:




The 3-phase input power module for the C7000 can be ordered via HP Partsurfer.  Customers can order from Partsurfer.


The 3-phase input power module part # is 413495-001 (North America and Japan part number).  This input power modules has qty. 2 NEMA L15-30 power cords.  Therefore it will require qty. 2 NEMA L15-30 receptacles.


The BladeSystem Enclosure will need to be configured for the change in power phase.  The procedure to change from single phase to 3-phase is simple and listed below.

x = 1 for single phase

x = 2 for 3-phase North America/Japan

x = 3 for 3-phase International
