PowerConnect 6248 and PowerConnect 7048 Stacking Modules

This question is not answered

Are the stacking modules from the 6248 compatible to use on the 7048?

I have both the 10GE CX4 installed in Bay 1 and 10GE SFP+ installed in Bay 2 on the 6248 and I would like to know if I can move those to the 7048?

  • They have different modules from one another. The 7048 takes a screw in cable and is hot swappable. The 6248 take a clip in cable and is not hot swappable. Here is the IO guide with part numbers and some specs.

  • Am I correct to assume that although the modules are not inter changeable, one can use the stacking cable of the 62xx for the 70xx (CX4) ?

  • The cable connections are physically different. The 70xx uses a cable with crew in connectors. The 62xx uses a cable with clip style connector.

  • Many thanks DanielC !

    Is there a document which states the different Dell codes for these, just to make sure I order the correct ones ?

  • The module guide i linked earlier in the thread shows the different modules for each switch and the part numbers.

    For the cables themselves, the Dell part number for the CX4 cable for the 70xx is part number 10XNR. Most CX4 screw in cables should work. Here is a link to a 1M cable that is compatible.

    And here is a link to one for the 62xx.

    These part numbers can differ as there are different part numbers for different length cables.
