Hey 376782,

did you try the first two left traces from top view to ground.

Pson and pskill sit next to one another 70% of the time with these types of PS's (card edge connector).

If that doesn't work, then try the 2nd trace(short one) from top left and the trace directly underneath on the bottom side to ground.

Hope we get somewhere..

Hey all just jumping into this thread, have tried going through all of it scanning for relevant information. I do have a coupld of questions and I am sure its possibly been covered before but I cant find answers anywhere.

I am converting 2 HP server powersupplies.... The DPS-600PB I have no problems with them or removing the case GND to the -ve connection so they will run in series.

I have just ordered the icharger 3010b so I can cook my lipos nice and quick.

The question is more about the guage or wires needed for the hookup. I dont know what wire I get with the iCharger for connecting it to a power supply or what connections it has on it.

I am guessing it uses 4mm bullelts?

If someone could tell me what guage wire and what size bullets they are using for their wiring that would be great, I can get everything ordered so when my charger turns up I am ready to go

4mm bullets.
3010B have 12AWG wire, it does get pretty hot when used from 12V source (50A limit).
I was thinking about replacing it with 10AWG.
I have 10AWG in my 600PB, see here:
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...&postcount=693
But 12AWG is fine, it is much harder to work with 10AWG in that tiny space.
These bullet panel mounts are rated for 15A or 20A only, but i do not think it matters, they work fine and massive 50-60A models are insanely expensive.

Delta DPS-700EB PSU OVP modification.


Connect PS On and PS Kill to ground to power up.

If you get an orange light and no +12v power then go to this post for instructions.

These are solder points to disable the Over Voltage Protection (OVP) on the Delta DPS-700EB PS.

Just solder a short wire across the two components highlighted in the picture.

They reside under the white cover on the rear side of the DC-1749 daughterboard.

Be sure to solder quickly as these are small components.

Voltage can be controlled externally by using a 1k or 5k potentiometer

between pin #63 (12VS) and ground.

Maximum voltage will depend on the individual PS.

It will be somewhere from 14.8v to 15.2v.

I suggest staying below 15.0v to keep everything within spec.

You may also set the internal voltage control trim potentiometer (at bottom of daughterboard) to maximum(counterclockwise) after modification is made.

I've tested this with my PS at 15.0v with a 65A load where OCP kicks in.

Over Current Protection (OCP) circuit still works with this mod.

This is just one method to disable the OVP. I opted not to remove any components.

And as always do this mod at your own risk.

Thanks for the infor, I have removed the DC ground on one supply and got the wire and binding posts too I really want to remove the hot swap connector much like you have, did you just short the connections to ground straight off the ribbon cable inside and what did you do with the 2 wires that goto the hot swap board off of the main board? (one blue one purple)

Anyone cracked the fan and voltage control on the PS4060?

The DPS-800GB A, also called HSTNS-PD05 is made by Delta, and has almost the same layout as the Delta 700. I still dont know how to start it ?. Here is a picture from under the fans.

Many of the DPS-800GB PS's are known to go bad.
This may explain why people can't get them to power up.

My fans are so quite that you can't hear them running unless your right next to them.
As they are now mounted, You have to put your hand in front of one to know its running.
Noise is not an issue on this version and I did not do the fan speed mod as I saw no reason for it.
What revision does yours show on the label? I have one I bought 2 years ago that is rev 3 and I just bought a newer one to get 24v that shows rev 8. If 8 is quieter then I might just order another one.

Be aware that "DL-580" does not describe the Power supply. It is the generic name for a whole range of servers from HP in the Proliant series. They come with a wide variety of Power Supplies. You need to specify the part number. There is some comment on this in the very first posts in this thread.

406421-001 - HP/COMPAQ - 1300 WATT REDUNDANT POWER SUPPLY FOR PROLIANT DL585 G2 DL580 G3 G4 ML5 DL585 G6 (406421-001)

That is what I got. It matches the first one I bought except the revision number that is printed on it.

I have found that when I have three of these in Parallel (HP PROLIANT DL580/ML570G3 RPS REDUNDANT POWER SUPPLY. P/N: 348114R-B21) and I shut one down that the others will power the fan up in the shutdown unit. I don't like this. I am going to add diodes to the lo-volts side to stop this. Anyone else seen this.
P.S. I am not using these to charge batteries. I am using mine for powering radio equipment and they handle the load great. I just need to raise the volts a little.
This thread has saved me a ton of money since I do not have to purchase traditional power supplies.
Thanks!

Hello,

I am trying to wire two DELL PowerEdge 2650 Power Supplies (500W) together in series but it seems the cases are grounded. If I connect the negative of one supply to the positive of the other I will be shortening one through the case.

How did you guys overcome that?

Thanks.

There's a whole thread on it here

Read Post 183 in particular.

ALSO post 1 of this thread for links to the alternative method of floating the outputs.
