Issue Description
Can Two Power Supply Units of an AR3260 Work in Active/Standby Mode?
Solution
An AR3260is equipped with two 350 W power supply units. The two power supply units work in load balancing mode and provide power to the system simultaneously.
  • When both two power supply units can work normally, they must work at the same time. That is, they do not support the active/standby mode (one unit is working, and the other is in sleeping state).
  • When the load power of the system is lower than 350 W, the two power supply units can work in 1+1 backup mode. When one power supply unit fails, the other one can power the router without affecting services on the router.
  • When the load power of the system is higher than 350 W, the two power supply units cannot work in 1+1 backup mode.
