What voltage does the PS_On pin read when plugged into the backplane and the PWR Ctrl board and running properly.

Better not be PS_On to high to activate PSU.

The accompanying documentation for the T710, R910 states otherwise.

If the power supply latches off due to a protection circuit tripping, AC input or PSON# signal toggle shall release latch condition
and the power supply shall attempt to provide output power to the load.
Minimum time delay for the toggle function shall be AC input OFF for 15sec, PSON# cycle HIGH for 1sec.
Hi Xandrios,
If two of these are put together for 24v+ output will current share being connected,one to the other, work (do anything) if say you have a 25A load on the 24V circuit and a simultaneous 20A load on one of the 12V circuits.

Hello Serious Power.

You SHOULD NOT connect the current share pins together when running PSUs in series.

The current share pin is only meant to be used when running them in parallel as shown here:

Hi,
Thanks, thought you might say something like that.
Not knowing much about these PSU's I thought it best to ask.

hi xandrios,

connected the fan control to gnd and current share to 3,3v but that only got me 12,62V. any way to get higher? senses the current share pin the voltage end regulates the 12v up? may a voltage divider from 12v calculated to, lets say 4v or so, help gaining some more voltage?
and any way to get the fans even slower? i´m using my supply most of the time with my ham-radio gear, drawing <2A at idle and up to about 20A sending. but most of the time idle´ing around so no tornado fans needed when charging batterys with it there´s no need for quiet fans as my charger is also loud as hell

and i have to say a BIG thank you for your time and great help! grab you a virtual german beer

Hey vnt17.

I've tested on my Dell PE 2800 930w PSU and got 13.3v.

Do you have the one with the two fans?

Fans are slowest when the fan pin is connected directly to ground.

The PSU is large enough where you shouldn't need any more

cooling even at full throttle.

Almost any positive voltage to the current share pin will yield

the same voltage boost so going higher than 3.3v will not help.

Free beer is the best kind of beer. Virtual German Beer. Hmmmmmmm....

Chug ....chug ....chug.....chug.... Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Duhhhhhhaaaaaannnngggg

Ich scheine zu sein, praktisch herausgefordert jetzt !

yep, its the one with 2 fans, 930w 7000815-0000. i think yours is the 7000814?
do you think its worth a try with resistors in the fans powerlines? or will it shut down if the fans running to slow? i stopped one with my finger and it shut down....
so if 12,6 is the highest voltage reachable, thats fine. works nicely with my stuff.

haha you sound like homer

i found that one browsing the delta website yesterday... crazy s**t! what would anyone need 470A for?? but.. why would i kill it? i think your german needs some improvement :P

have got a AHF-2DC-2100W 147amp sitting on the shelf, hope the power cord arrives today. but im a bit scared about the fan, 12v 2,28A.. i think that thing sounds like an impeller....

I have one running. It sounds like a few edfs. I just cut the ends off an outdoor extension cord and soldered one side to the psu and added a dryer cord to the other end to match the outlet in the garage.

like a few?

you have to build your own cable to get 220v right? its just easy to get it here, just plug it in the wall bought a matching cable for about 3€ so no problem about that. any way to get the fan quiet in this monster?

I have the same Dell 930w 7000815-0000 twin fan model that you have.

When I connect the current share pin to 3.3v, I get a voltage rise up to 13.3V. Odd.

You could probably get the fans to run slower with the in line resistor method.

It's just a question of whether or not it is worth the effort.

I actually think that the fans inside the AHF-2DC-2100W PSU sound louder than the 1300w DL580 G3 PS fans.

To much German beer will even make someone who speaks fluent German need to improve their German. :

Dell M1000E

Hello, I have Dell M1000E model: A2360P-00 power supply. I red the whole topic, but on the only thing I could find is that this PSU shares same pinout as a few like it, but I can't find pinout for none of them.
Could somebody give me the exact pinout for Dell M1000E model: A2360P-00?

Thanks in advance.

Hello atanas.

You might want to PM HaxNobody on Rcgroups. He's been tinkering with that very same PSU for the past 6 months.

Or you may want to contact him on this sight.

It looks like he has even made some power connectors for the PSU.

Or contact him here. His member name is rjk.

I've sent him a PM here, thanks for the advice.
xandrios, in post 1230 you say that you have Astec DS2600-3-001 2600w 215A 12v, do you had any success with it?

I don't have the Astec DS2600-3-001. It's to expensive to get my hands on. My mouth is still watering.

I just noticed that it has the same pin configuration as the Dell 2360w and 2700w PSUs.

It would be unlikely that they are much different from one another.

Hey Xandrios,
It's been a while since I looked at this topic and I must say that I have been so busy that I only got around to actually doing some tinkering on this PSU a few days ago

I don't have a volt meter or a proper load but I was able to use a piece of solder to poke around and figure out the pins that make the fan go on anyway.

The connectors you see are standard Molex connectors from the EXTreme PowerMass series, with up to 150 amps per connector. The power connectors are at this link: http://www.molex.com/molex/products/...ECEPTACLES.xml and the signal connectors are at this link: http://www.molex.com/molex/products/...ECEPTACLES.xml and they can be purchased in single quantities from Mouser and other component retailers (search google for the exact part numbers).

I used 6AWG battery cable, with one cable split onto 2 connectors as showed in the pic you posted. It required a bit of poking with a flat blade screwdriver to get the wire to fit in around all the connector pins before soldering. Then, I used the little torch to heat it up to wick in the solder.

As for the signal connectors, here is what I told the guy who PMed me:
When facing the PSU from the rear, with the terminals on the top and the fan below, the signal connectors are on the right. Within the signal pins, the BOTTOM ROW (all 3 pins) appears to be +5Vsb, because it sparks when connected to ground even when the PSU is off. To turn it on, I poked around and found that the MIDDLE PIN on the FOURTH ROW connected to the MIDDLE AND RIGHT pins on the FIRST ROW seemed to do the trick. It may not be necessary to connect both pins on the top row, but experiment to find out.

Hope this helps anyone else out that may be planning on using this PSU

Very nice HaxNobody. The RC clan is going to tame that beast someday.

Even if we have to use stone knives and bearskins.
