FSP has just unveiled a 500W addition to its Twin series redundant power supplies, with a 700W unit coming relatively soon. These innovative PSUs can be installed in the majority of ATX tower cases and provide consumers with a stable solution without having to invest in a larger form factor. The Twins contain two independent power modules with their own dedicated power adapter. Usually, the modules share the load to maximise efficiency. Although, if one module fails the remaining model takes control to prevent data loss. This is a wonderful failsafe you cannot enjoy on traditional power supplies. On another note, the hot-swappable design makes it easy to replace failed modules while the system is powered on.
Compatible with Standard ATX Cases
Users can mount the Twins in standard ATX cases without the need for a special bracket. Both ATX 12V and EPS 12V connectors are provided for maximum motherboard compatibility. Flat ribbon cables save space and installation hassle, perfect for cramped cases.
80 Plus Gold Efficiency and Server-Grade Reliability
Both Twins PSUs are 80 Plus Gold certified, offering up to 90% efficiency. Under constant operation, this drastically cuts down operating costs. Each power supply module features a dedicated dual ball-bearing fan, premium capacitors, and has over current protection, short circuit protection, over voltage protection, and fan failure protection. Reliability is further backed by a MTBF of 100,000 hours and a 5 year warranty.
LED Alarm Guard and Digital Control Software
The LED alarm guard alerts operators to problems in the system and simplifies problem diagnosis. If a power supply fails, an alarm will sound and an LED indicator will show which power supply needs to be replaced. Users can connect the Twins’ to a USB header for FSP’s Guardian software: a full suite of digital monitoring controls. Keep an eye on input, output, efficiency, and other metrics in real time, or review up to seven days of past data.
The FSP Twins Series is now available in 500W/700W versions at a MSRP of $399/499 USD, respectively.
