Power Supply and Cooling System

The vEdge 100 router has an built-in AC-to-DC power supply unit. Read this article to learn more about the AC power supply in the router as well as about the cooling system and airflow through the router chassis.

AC Power Supply in vEdge 100 Router

The vEdge 100 router has an integrated AC power supply that exposes a C6 male AC inlet connector externally. The unit can be powered by connecting the supplied power cord to AC mains with the C5 female connector end of power cord plugged into the unit.

Table 1 describes the AC power supply specifications for the vEdge 100 router.

AC Power Cord Specifications

The vEdge 100 router ships with a detachable AC power cord. The power cord has a C5 female connector at one end and the other end is specific to the country/locality to which the product is shipped.

Cooling System in a vEdge 100 Router

The cooling system in a vEdge 100 router consists of internal heat sinks and an internal fan with adjustable speed. The fan speed is algorithmically controlled, based on readings obtained from internal temperature sensors that in turn is determined by factors such as external ambient as well as the traffic workload.

If the ambient temperature inside the chassis rises above the acceptable range, the router raises an alarm. If the temperature inside the chassis rises above the maximum threshold temperature, the router shuts down automatically.
