The power usage depends on the configuration, but a useful resource is the
Dell Rack Advisor.
I would recommend that you use a clamp meter to measure the actual load
while in operation.

If you are happy with the stability of your power system, (UPS backup and
such) then by all means connect both PSU's to the same supply!

Subject: PE2450 amps?

Does anyone know offhand how many amps this box uses?  The document I
found just says 330watt X 2.  The new colo has a
7.5AMP circuit for the rackspace and it needs to accomadate a few servers.

Also what's peoples suggestion on datacenter powering/wiring..   I'm not
willing to drop the massive amount of cash to get a 2nd separate power
dropped into this rack.. Just plug both power supplies into the 1 sources?
