EdgePower to power ES-16-XG

We are wanting to increase the power input redundancy in our ES-16_XG units that we use in our core.

 

Is one EdgePower capable of power 2 ES-16-XG units?

The EP-150?   Yes, even with only one power module the 150 watts is enough to power 3 ES-16-XGs, even with all or most of the SFP+ cages filled.   The max power consumption of thre XG is 56 watts, although in most cases it will likely be well under 50.   You will want to use some kind of power distribution system to feed the ES-16s individually - I would at least use fuses in line to each switch, if not isolation diodes to prevent a short in one from taking the other down as well.

Would I need to step down the voltage? From what I can tell the EdgePower only puts out 54V. Would I need to step that down to 24V?

No - the switch is designed to operate with any DC voltage from 20 to 57VDC.   It's in the specs in the data sheet.

The spec sheet shows 25 to 16 VDC

Ah I see.

That is the info from the Unifi Switch.

I am asking about the EdgeSwitch.

[ Edited ]

Sorry about that - we use a lot of both UniFi and Edge units depending.  In that case yes - they want 24.0VDC.  You can use either a comnmercial DC-DC converter or a Buck regulator.    All our sites have both 48 and 24V DC power so we just power them from the same PDU that runs the EdgeRouters and radios... I will likely be doing a story on that soon...
