Enermax 500W Platinum Platimax

Source ENERMAX Platimax perfectly exhausted all possibilities of optimization of DC, but that its advantages far from over. Since the DC circuit is already at the top of its technology are engineers Enermax focused on developing more efficient transformer. Thus a layout " Dynamic Hybrid Transformer Topology "Which can be divided into three main parts.

First resonant dynamic transformer array

It is based on a highly efficient resonant topology that is used as LCD monitors. The main noticeable change is added to the PCB resonant choke.

Second dynamic voltage increase transformation
First, the capacitors are charged by alternating current (AC) from the wall, with the help of which ensure a continuous supply AC DC power transformers by PC. Hitherto, capacitors charged statically, so that there at low sampling to excessive losses. Enermax Platimax series capacitors are charged by dynamic voltage - depending on the desired system performance. With the resources Enermax significantly increase its effectiveness.

Third dynamic frequency transformation

Transformers optimize alternating current up or down. During this time you will lose some power. Companies Enermax managed to optimize this process using dynamic frequencies. Transformers operate with a wider frequency range in accordance with the variable consumption of system components. With the resources Enermax significantly reduce their energy loss.

Source ENERMAX Platimax you through the installation please modular cabling . Does it even so cleverly done by the cables, which uses each computer has fixed. This allows you to eliminate the clutter in the closet and better optimize airflow. The fact that it is a source of future needless doubt on his body, moreover, see 10/12pinové connectors for future energy-consuming components.

In addition to the incredible performance takes Enermax Platimax peak efficiency, which in the conditions of 230 V network ranges from 90-95%. Moreover, it requires no minimum order, so it is a great tool for a variety of hybrid CPU/GPU solution. With an improved and highly efficient 5V standby (+5 VSB) circuit ensures, in combination with ErP/EuP Lot 6 motherboard less than 1 W consumption in standby mode . Cooling from 13.9 cm fan with patented Twister Bearing Technology then performs efficient and ultra quiet cooling, backed by long life fan. He spins at low loads only very slowly, so it is very quiet - as another advantage of high efficiency, minimal waste heat.

Source contains a trio of 12 V power branches, with a maximum single load current is 25 A, the combined load of at most the sum of 41 A, with absolutely minimal ripple. Enermax Platimax simply a premium source, as evidenced, for example, that despite the ostensible maximum power of 500 W is capable of over sixty seconds to deliver 550 W. As well as the complete set Japanese electrolytic capacitors, which are able to operate up to 105 ° C ambient temperature.

Among other interesting functionalities can be named SpeedGuard fan speed control, which ensures optimal cooling and minimum noise. Function HeatGuard takes care and spin the fan 30 to 60 seconds after turning off the computer for longer service life of components. CordGuard ensures the power cord connected to unintentional removal, for example when cleaning. And last, SafeGuard includes a broad set of protections against fluctuations and surges in the network.
