Enermax Platimax 500W Platinum

Source ENERMAX Platimax perfectly exhausts all possibilities of optimizing the DC parts, but its advantages are far from ending. Given that the DC circuit is already at its technological peak, Enermax engineers have focused on developing a more efficient transformer. A Dynamic Hybrid Transformer Topology has been formed , which can be divided into three basic parts.

1. Dynamic resonant field of the transformer
It is based on a highly efficient resonance topology, which is used, for example, on LCD monitors. The major noticeable change to PCB is the added resonance choke.

2. Dynamic increase of transformation voltage
First, the capacitors are charged with AC (AC) from the socket, which ensures continuous supply of AC transformers according to DC PC consumption. Until now, the capacitors have been charged statically, so they have lost too much at low take-offs. The Enermax Platimax series capacitors are charged with dynamic voltage - according to the required system performance. Thanks to this, Enermax's resources greatly increase its efficiency.

3. Dynamic transformation frequencies
Transformers optimize alternating current up or down. During this operation, part of the power consumption is lost. Enermax has been able to optimize this process using dynamic frequencies. Transformers work with a wider frequency range in line with the variable consumption of system components. Thanks to this, Enermax resources significantly reduce their energy losses.

ENERMAX Platimax will delight you in modular cabling during installation. She's made it so smart that the cables used by each computer are fixed. This will help eliminate the clutter in the cabinet and optimize the flow of air. There is no need to doubt that there is no need to doubt the source of the future; on its body, you will find 10/12-pin connectors for future energy-intensive components.

In addition to unrivaled performance, Enermax Platimax delivers top performance that ranges from 90-95% in 230 V network. Moreover, it does not require any minimal subscription, so it is a great tool for various hybrid CPU / GPU solutions. Thanks to an improved and highly efficient 5 V stand-by (+5 VSB) circuit, it combines ErP / EuP Lot 6 with a base plate of less than 1 W in standby mode . Cooling with the 13.9 cm fan with the patented Twister Bearing Technology then delivers efficient and ultra-quiet cooling, supported by the long life of the fan. It revolves at a low load only very slowly, so it is very quiet - because another advantage of high efficiency is minimum waste heat.

The power supply includes a triple 12-volt power supply whose maximum independent current load is 25 A, combined with a total load of 41 A, with a minimum of curl. Enermax Platimax is simply a premium source, as demonstrated, for example, by the fact that it can supply 550 W over a maximum of 500 watts beyond the stated maximum power of 500 W. As well as a complete set of Japanese electrolytic capacitors capable of operating up to 105 ° C ambient temperature.

Other interesting features include SpeedGuard Fan Speed ​​Control, which ensures optimal cooling and minimal noise. The HeatGuard feature is old and the fan turns 30-60 seconds after shutting down the computer to ensure a longer component life. CordGuard provides the connected power cord against unintentional pulling, for example during cleaning. And last, SafeGuard includes a wide set of protection against gusts and shocks in the network.

Quiet, well-prepared. A leader in the dog. Price, but pay tribute to the quality. Connectors for wiring could be further apart.
