Check out our PSUs 101 article to learn more about PSU protection features. Our protection features evaluation methodology is described in detail here.
|OCP||12V1,2: 30.6A (139.1%), 11.85V 12V3,4: >40.75A (135.8%), 11.75V 5V: 40.1A (160.4%), 4.989V 3.3V: 29.85A (154.8%), 3.3V 5VSB: 4A (133.3%), 5.006V|
|OTP||✓ (130°C ambient @ +12V heat sink)|
|SCP||12V: ✓ 5V: ✓ 3.3V: ✓ 5VSB: ✓ -12V: ✓|
|SIP||Surge: MOV Inrush: NTC thermistor & bypass relay|
The +12V rails can deliver more amps than their specifications suggest before OCP shuts the E11-1000 down. Its minor rails also go quite high with load regulation and ripple suppression kept under control. Finally, the 5VSB rail has a rather conservative 4A limit.
Over-power protection's triggering point is set at a normal level, while OTP looks to be set low. With that said, this is a 40°C-rated PSU when it comes to continuous full-power delivery, rather than a 50°C one.
