V200R001C00 to V200R012C00 versions

This model does not match V200R001C01, V200R003C02, V200R003C10, V200R005C00SPC500, V200R005C01, V200R005C02, V200R005C03, or V200R007C10.

Appearance and Structure

Figure 5-17 S5700-52P-PWR-LI-AC appearance
1 Forty-eight PoE+ 10/100/1000BASE-T ports 2 Four 1000BASE-X ports
3 One mini USB port 4 One console port
5 Ground screw
It is used with a ground cable.
6 RPS socket
  • It is used with an RPS cable which is not hot swappable.

  • A PoE switch can have an RPS power supply connected to this socket to provide inputs for system power supply and PoE power supply. The two inputs are independent of each other. The RPS power supply can also be used as a backup of the system power supply when it does not provide PoE power.
7 Jack for AC power cable locking strap
The AC power cable locking strap is not delivered with the switch.
8 AC socket

It is used with an AC power cable.

Port Description

10/100/1000BASE-T port
A 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet electrical port sends and receives service data at 10/100/1000 Mbit/s, and must use an Ethernet cable. Table 5-42 describes the attributes of a 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet electrical port.
Table 5-42 Attributes of a 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet electrical port



Connector type


Standards compliance

IEEE802.3, IEEE802.3u, IEEE802.3ab

Working mode

10/100/1000 Mbit/s auto-sensing

Maximum transmission distance

100 m

1000BASE-X port
When a 1000BASE-X port uses a GE optical module, it can only transmit and receive data at 1000 Mbit/s and does not support the 100 Mbit/s transmission speed. When a 1000BASE-X port uses a GE copper module, it can transmit and receive data at 10 Mbit/s, 100 Mbit/s, or 1000 Mbit/s. Table 5-43 describes the attributes of a 1000BASE-X Ethernet optical port.

Standards compliance


Console port
The console port is connected to a console for on-site configuration. The port must use a console cable. The console port is used when a switch is powered on for the first time. For details about the attributes of a console port, see Table 5-44.
Table 5-44 Attributes of a console port



Connector type


Standards compliance


Working mode

Duplex Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (UART)

Baud rate

9600 bit/s, 19200 bit/s, 38400 bit/s, 57600 bit/s, or 115200 bit/s

Default value: 9600 bit/s

Mini USB port

The mini USB port is connected to a console for on-site configuration. When both the Mini USB and console port have a cable connected, only the Mini USB port works.

Indicator Description

The S5700-52P-PWR-LI-AC has similar indicators to those on the S5700-28X-PWR-LI-AC, except that the S5700-52P-PWR-LI-AC does not have an RPS indicator. For details, see Indicator Description.

Power Supply Configuration

The S5700-52P-PWR-LI-AC has a built-in power module and does not support pluggable power modules.

It can provide PoE power supply and connect to an RPS1800 power supply for power redundancy. Table 5-45 lists its power supply configurations.

Table 5-45 Power supply configurations
Power Supply Configuration Available PoE Power Maximum Number of Ports (Fully Loaded)
No RPS used 369.6 W
  • 802.3af (15.4 W per port): 24
  • 802.3at (30 W per port): 12
RPS used
  • V200R001: 369.6 W
  • Versions later than V200R001: 800 W
  • 802.3af (15.4 W per port): 48
  • 802.3at (30 W per port): 26
When an S5700-52P-PWR-LI-AC switch of V200R001 connects to an RPS1800, the RPS1800 only provides PoE power backup and does not increase the switch's PoE power.
Figure 5-18 shows the power supply mode of a built-in AC PoE power module (PWR). The PWR module receives AC power from an external power source and provides two outputs: 12 V and -53 V. The 12 V output is provided for the chassis, and the -53 V output is provided for PDs.

Heat Dissipation

The S5700-52P-PWR-LI-AC has three built-in fans for forced air cooling. The airflow direction is left-to-right.

This figure only shows the airflow direction and does not depict the actual device.
