So many types? (AC + DC + POE + EMEA + APAC) - the world is a complicated place :smileywink:

 

Or did you mean something else?

(I think it's 6 actually)

 

Ah, I'm not positive, but I think it's just because the design spec was to avoid special wiring - ~2KW is the maximum you can draw off a 20amp 110V circuit. So to fullfill the power requirements of a large fully-loaded switch (plus the load-balanced redundency) - you need a lot of discrete power supplies.
