Dear all.

what is the detailed difference between the two power supply models "K-AC-PS-1400W" and "K-AC-PS"?

I am not able to read out the serial number of the "K-AC-PS-1400W" via NetSight flex view.
With the "K-AC-PS" it works.

does this make sense?

thanks for your help in advance
regards
Alex

To the best of my knowledge the K-AC-PS-1400W and K-AC-PS are built to the same power specifications and by design are intended to function the same - with one exception: The original K-AC-PS-1400W fan runs at a constant speed, while the later-released K-AC-PS has a variable-speed fan.

I am checking with my colleagues regarding this background question, and regarding what you have reported for behavior.  More to follow...

The very low number of K-AC-PS-1400W units available for testing has prevented the rapid verification I was hoping for here.  However, it is now looking like there are two unique functional aspects of this model as compared with the K-AC-PS:
Constant-speed fan, and non-support of serial number visibility via SNMP.
