PA-5200 Back Panel

Learn about the PA-5200 firewall back-panel components.
The following image shows the back panel of PA-5200 Series firewalls and the table describes each back-panel component. The only difference between PA-5200 Series firewall back panels is the power supply type installed—they each can have two AC or two DC power supplies. The image shows a PA-5220 firewall with AC power supplies. To view an image of the DC power supplies, see Connect DC Power to a PA-5200 Series Firewall.
