Hello guys and as always thanks for your time and expertise.
We have a Dell Poweredge 2950 and I need to calculate the power requirements for a ups.  We're going to connect five of these servers into a ups.
On the power supply for the server - here's the info listed:
Input 100-240v
50/60 H
Max AC Current 9.3AMP
Output +12v 62.4amp
+3.3usb 3.8amp
Total output power not to exceed 750 watts
- Now I haven't done this in a while but I thought the calculation was amps * volts.  With that being said, am I using the 9.3 amps in my calculation.  I would appreciate any help on this.  Thanks.
