    A customer is asking us on the energy efficiency of the PSUs used for the X440-G2-24p-10GE4.

    More specifically, he would like to know:
    Thanks a bunch for your help!

    Hi, Marco. The Hardware Installation Guide contains power specs for the X440-G2. (Click the link and search for "Power Specifications.") You'll see statistics for heat dissipation and power consumption for every X440-G2 model. Is this what your customer is looking for?

    Hi Larry,

    thanks a bunch for your fast reply!

    Unfortunately, this is not sufficient (we already that information to him).

    More specifically, he is interested in how much power (in 😵 is actually provided by the PSU to the switch compared to the power the PSU receives from the plug. See overview on the certification criteria below:



    However, this certification is only the most prominent criteria the customer could think of.
    -> If there is any other information available on your side, which could provide an idea of this aspect of energy efficiency, it would also be very helpful.

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    PS: Would you able to tell me the manufacturer and model number of the PSU used in the X440-G2?
    -> This way I may check myself, if its efficiency information is already available within the Ecova database (https://plugloadsolutions.com/80PlusPowerSupplies.aspx).

    Would you be able to provide me w/ a feedback on this one?
    Thank you very much in advance.

    Hi Marco,
    To my knowledge, the specifics that you're asking for aren't typically made available outside of engineering and product management. I tried looking in one of our systems and didn't see the PSU manufacturer explicitly listed.

    Hi Drew,

    thanks a lot for your feedback!
    Is there, however, any other information proving insights about the level of energy efficiency of this type of switch you could share?
