FortiGate 6000F AC power supply units (PSUs)

FortiGate 6000F AC power supply units (PSUs)

The FortiGate 6000F back panel includes three hot swappable redundant AC PSUs (PSU1, PSU2, and PSU3). Two generations of FortiGate 6000F models have been released. Generation 1 and generation 2 have different AC PSUs:

  • Generation 2 FortiGate 6000F PSUs can be connected to high-line AC power (200VAC or higher) and each PSU provides 2000W AC. A generation 2 FortiGate 6000F with two high line power feeds connected to PSU1 and PSU2 is a fully 1+1 redundant solution because a single PSU can fully power a FortiGate 6000F.

  • Generation 1 FortiGate 6000F PSUs can be connected to low line AC power (120VAC or below) and each PSU provides 1500W AC. Requires at least 2 PSUs to be connected to power. Connecting a third PSU provides 2+1 redundancy. If only one PSU is operating, some FPCs will be shut down and performance will be reduced.

  • You can also connect generation 2 FortiGate 6000F PSUs to low-line AC power (120VAC or below) and each PSU provides 1500W AC. Requires at least 2 PSUs to be connected to power. Connecting a third PSU provides 2+1 redundancy. If only one PSU is operating, some FPCs will be shut down and performance will be reduced.

Use a supplied C15 power cable to connect power to each PSU C16 power connector. C15/C16 power connectors are used for high temperature environments and are rated up to 120°C.

Note

For more information on FortiGate 6000F generation 1 and generation 2, including supported firmware versions and how to determine the generation of your FortiGate 6000F hardware, see the Fortinet Knowledge base article: Technical Tip: Information on FortiGate 6000F series Gen1 and Gen2.
