This section contains information on site planning and requirements for installing the system.

Site Environmental Requirements

The following table lists the environmental requirements for the platform.



Server Access Clearance

A minimum clearance of 36 inches in front of and behind the chassis for maintenance access as well as air flow.

Site Power Requirements

The following table lists the  system power requirements for both AC and DC power options:


SBC 5400

DC Option

Operational DC Voltage (Nominal)


Operational DC voltage (Minimal)


Operational DC voltage (Maximum)


DC Input Treatment

Isolated DC Return

Maximum DC Current

36.2 A

AC Option

Operational AC Voltage (Nominal)

100-120 VAC @ 50-60 Hz
200-240 VAC @ 50-60 Hz

Maximum AC Current

12 A / 7 A

Power Cord

An AC power cord is included in SBC shipments for SBCs equipped with AC power supplies.

(North American 15 A 125 VOLT NEMA 5-15P to IEC C19 Connector)


BondingBonded to a grounding system utilizing either an Isolated Bonding Network
(Isolated Ground) or a Common Bonding Network (Integrated Ground).


SBCs shipped with AC power supplies include a customer-selectable, country-specific power cord that is chosen during the system quoting process.  The example above is a North American power cord (15 amp 125 volt NEMA 5-15P to IEC C19 connector), which is one of the selections.
