Why does the show power detail query show power in watts in just one of the power supplies?

Could it be that only one is in use and the other in standby - what happens if you unplug the power cord on slot#1 PSU#2 ?!

Because the output of 1/1 is 0 Ampere it must be 0 Watts.

Hi @Ronald Dvorak, thanks for you answer. How much power does the PS1 have to consume for the PS2 to come into operation?

I have the same, and can't seem to find a switch with dual PSU and higher than 70 W power usage

Some systems use one PSU at a time and only if that one fails the other one kicks in. That can be devious if one side is UPS powered and the other one not. You hook up lots of systems on the UPS but only a few actually draws power from those PSUs. Then when the incoming power fails, the UPS is overloaded.

Looking at the numbers above, it seems the PSU with the higher voltage is drawing all the current, which makes sense. Only when the voltage drops in the PSU providing power current is drawn from the other PSU. If they are coupled together internally via simple protection diodes, this would be the expected result.

B.t.w., really odd that the Max says: (12V/715W Max). 12V??? It's not a 12 V PSU...
