HPE Flexible Slot (Flex Slot) power supplies share a common electrical and physical design that allows for hot plug, tool-less installation into HPE ProLiant Gen9 Performance servers. HPE's Flex Slot power supplies are certified for high-efficiency operation and offer multiple power output options, allowing users to "right-size" a power supply for specific server configurations. This flexibility helps to reduce power waste, lower overall energy costs, and avoid "trapped" power capacity in the data center.
Flex Slot power supplies are rated for Platinum-level certification with efficiency of up to 94%, and Titanium-level certification with efficiency of up to 96%. Support for HPE Power Discovery Services, via embedded power line communication technology, is also available with the 800W Titanium and 1400W Platinum Plus model. This feature enables each server to communicate identification, location, and power-related data to the Intelligent Power Distribution Unit in the rack which can then be shared with HPE Insight Control to manage power usage and efficiency in the data center.
HPE Flexible Slot Battery Backup enables backup power in the same form factor as Flex Slot power supplies. The Battery Backup can provide up to 750W of power up to 60 seconds, or up to 500W when configured in paralleled configuration.
