COnverting Server Power Supply - EMERSON

I was able to get a couple of these power supplies and would like to convert them.

This thread has been very helping but I still need a little more help to get it to work fully.

The power supplies are: rated at +12.v ---- 55.0A MAX
at +3.3Vco -- 0.2A MAX
EMERSON Module 7001484-J000 or
ACBel FS7923

These were removed from IBM X-Servers.

I have attached a image of the connections 8 signals top /bottom

01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 P-P-P-P-P-P-P-P-P <--Top
09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p <--Bottom

if I short 07 and 15 the fan starts but as soon as I place any real load 2amp
or more the power supply shutsdowns. I do get a reading from the power pins between 12.2 - 12.4

when I try to get readings of these pins these are teh readings:

Top
01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08
G 4.2 G G 4.8 G G G G = reading 0.0 V

Bottom
09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
0.2 G 0.2 G 0.1 4.6 4.6 4.6


Electricity is not my thing, understand the basics

ANy help or suggestions on what to try or how I can determine the pins would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Some computer power supplies require a sizable load on the 5 volt line for proper operation.

I use 3 or 4 10 Ohm, 10 Watt resistors, all in parallel connected across the 5 volt line -- between the red and black wires. Hope this helps..

Does anyone know ow to test the pins and what pins based on voltage I should try to jump?

I seem to be missing a third one to keep the load.

I've figured it out. Top row, pin 1 and 2 and you will have stable 12V output.

I've just tested it with 2 chargers, each 150W, no problems so far.


Many greetings from Germany
