Lepa Announces MaxPlatinum Series of PSUs for Coin Miners

Lepa has announced its new lineup of MaxPlatinum power supplies that are built to be very powerful yet very efficient.

The models released include the P1050-MA, P1375-MA, and P1700-MA-EU. The first two carry 80-Plus Platinum certification, while the most powerful unit is rated as being up to 93 percent efficient.

The power supplies can deliver continuous throughputs of their named wattages – 1050 W, 1375 W, and 1700 W for the P1050-MA, P1375-MA, and P1700-MA-EU, respectively. That said, the P1375-MA and P1700-MA-EU actually feature higher peak power envelopes, allowing them to push up to 1600 W and 1800 W for short intervals. The high power envelopes combined with the high efficiency numbers should make the power supplies ideal for coin miners.

Cooling of the units is achieved by a single 135 mm fan, which can spin at speeds of 1700 RPM for the P1050-MA unit, with the other two carrying a fan that can spin a little faster with speeds of up to 2500 RPM.

The company didn't actually get the P1700-MA-EU certified with an 80-Plus certificate, and it is likely that there is a simple reason for it. One of the 80-Plus requirements is that the PSU can deliver certain efficiency levels when operating off either a 115 V or 230 V network, and the P1700-MA-EU doesn't actually have support for the 115 V network. As such, we won't be seeing this unit arrive to U.S. shelves.

MSRP pricing is set at $249.99 and $329.99 for the P1050-MA and the P1375-MA, respectively.

    I would just go with a server rack power supply if someone needs the juice. You will need to use the same plug your electric stove or clothes dryer uses to power it, but it will do the job LOL

    Oh great, just in time for it not to be profitable to sink money in to hardware for mining alt coins anymore!
