Product Review

The Cisco C6880X3KWAC power supply unit offers a compact form factor with dimensions of 1.6 in. (H) x 3.95 in. (W) x 22 in. (D) and a weight of 5 lb, making it suitable for dense setups where space efficiency is crucial. It supports a wide range of input voltages (85-264 VAC) and frequencies (47-63 Hz), ensuring compatibility across various power sources and regions, but has a relatively high rush-in current of 55 A, which could necessitate careful planning in electrical infrastructure to avoid circuit breaker trips. The power supply operates efficiently within a broad temperature range (32°F to 104°F) and humidity (10% to 90% noncondensing), though its BTU output at full load (10,410 BTU/hour) may require adequate cooling solutions to manage heat within the network enclosure.


The Cisco C6880X3KWAC is a high-capacity power supply engineered to support demanding network environments, offering a balance between performance and efficiency. Its physical dimensions, with a height of 1.6 inches (4.1 cm), a width of 3.95 inches (10 cm), and a depth of 22 inches (55.9 cm), make it a compact solution for a variety of hardware configurations. Weighing in at 5 lb (2.27 kg), it is designed for easy installation and handling. This power supply operates within a voltage range of 85 VAC to 264 VAC, accommodating various electrical standards worldwide. It supports a minimum input frequency of 47 Hz and can handle an input current of up to 20 A at nominal line voltages of 110 or 220 VAC. The rush-in current is capped at 55 A for one cycle, providing stability during power surges.
  • Power supply input receptacles are standardized with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 320-C20, ensuring broad compatibility.
  • The power cord is rated for 16A, aligning with the unit's high-power capabilities.
  • British thermal units (BTUs) vary with output, reaching up to 10,410 BTU/hour at 3051W output and 5292 BTU/hour at 1551W output, reflecting its efficiency and thermal management.
With an output holdup time of 20 milliseconds (ms) minimum, the Cisco C6880X3KWAC ensures continuous power delivery during brief interruptions, which is critical for maintaining network stability. The operating temperature range spans from 32 °F (0 °C) to 104°F (40°C), and the storage temperature range extends from –40 °F (–40°C) to 185°F (85°C), demonstrating its resilience in various environmental conditions. Humidity levels are also a consideration for this power supply. For operating environments, the non-condensing relative humidity can range from 10% to 90%, ensuring that the device can function efficiently in both dry and humid conditions. When not in operation, the non-condensing relative humidity tolerance expands slightly to a maximum of 95%, offering flexibility for storage conditions. Overall, the Cisco C6880X3KWAC is built to deliver reliable power for Cisco networking hardware, ensuring that systems remain operational through a wide range of electrical and environmental conditions. Its design prioritizes both efficiency and durability, making it a suitable choice for supporting critical network infrastructure.
