Establishing an accurate load is critical to testing and evaluating a PC power supply.  PCPerspective’s power supply test bench can place a precise 2,000 watt DC load on the PSU under test.  Each power supply is tested under controlled, real-world conditions up to its maximum rated load (at 40ºC), using both 115 VAC and 240 VAC line voltage.  Our current suite of tests includes:


 



  • DC Load Regulation

  • DC Line Regulation

  • DC Cross-load (unbalanced load)

  • AC Ripple and Noise

  • Power Factor

  • Efficiency

  • Differential Temperature

  • Noise



 


The Silencer 750W CF power supply was evaluated on both features and performance.  A full range of equipment was used to test the power supply under controlled load conditions. 


 



  • (2) CSI3710A Programmable DC load (+3.3V and +5V ouputs)

  • (4) CSI3711A Programmable DC load (+12V1, +12V2, +12V3, and +12V4)

  • FLUKE 87-III True RMS digital multimeter (Accuracy ±0.05%)

  • Extech 380803 Power Analyzer (Accuracy ±0.5% of full scale)

  • <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Hitachi V-650F 60 MHz dual trace oscilloscope (Accuracy ±3%)

  • Powerstat Variable Autotransformer, 1.4 KVA, 0-140 VAC

  • FLUKE  52-II digital thermometer (Accuracy ±0.3ºC/0.5ºF)
