## 3750X Stack Power Limitation With Non-POE Switch

We have 9 x 3750x switches with 5-nonPOE and 5-POE.

There is a limitation with 4 POE per stack with Stack Power.

Can we combine all 9 to one stack since there are only 4 POE?

Or, is the 4-switch limitation applied regardless if they are mixed with POE and non-POE?

Thank you

You can stack all 9. The 4 stack restriction is for 'stack power' only. Some people create a stack of 8 with 2 'stack power' stacks

If you want all switches to participate in stackpower, then the 4-switch limitation applies regardless if it is POE or nonPOE? Thanks.

You can only have 4 switches per 'power stack'. If you want non-PoE to be in a power stack the same rules apply. Regular 'data' stacks can still be all nine. Looking below you can see there is a 'data' stack of 9 switches and 3 stack power groups.

Because you're using both PoE an non-PoE switches, you might want to take actual power demands and power supplies into careful account for how you might partition the power stacks.

`We have 9 x 3750x switches with 5-nonPOE and 4-POE.`

I don't recommend you have a stack of more than 6 3750X switch units in a stack.  Stack up to 6 and NO MORE.
