question about redundant psu.. Specially elanvital evr 3600

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hi guys.. nice to meet you...

my bussiness is buying an unused computer and dissassemble the computer into parts then sell them again parts by parts. or in other word's I'm a scavenger

mostly I got a fairly old computer parts like pentium 4 socket 478. or socket 775. SDRAM or DDR memory. AGP vga. socket 478 branded motherboard. and so on

this evening I've got Redundant PSU ElanVital EVR 3006 300 watt's x 2, from my fellow.

only one rack that can operate in good condition. the other is dead.


Now before I can sell this PSU I must know the information behind it. So I can sell it in proportional price.

what I ask is

1. What is redundant psu? and what makes them different from normal psu?

2. Can we use this PSU for standard PC? (I already have converter. like 20 to 24 pin, molex to atx power pin, molex to sata power pin, molex to 6 pin vga power pin.)

3. With one rack is dead could this PSU operate normally for server?

4 and last but not least. from what generation this PSU comes from?. compared to intel socket line. is from pentium socket 478 generation, or pentium 4 socket 775 generation.


I'm sorry if I ask too much. and Thank's for your help. any answer will be appreciated.....

oh if anyone wonder where do I live, I lived on Indonesia.

Welcome to the forum!


1'st, the clue is in the name... a redundant PSU is a PSU that provides redundancy (used for always on servers, mission critical machines, etc).. it's comprised of two identical power supplies and is designed in such a way that if the active module fails, the redundant one kicks in and keeps the machine on.

2'nd, I can't find any info on your particular PSU so I can't answer that question, if it's designed for ATX machines then yes, but don't try it unless your sure, check voltages on every pin before you connect it to a machine.... maybe upload a picture with the specifications sticker that's on the PSU, it will allow me to offer you more info on the unit.

3'rd, depends on the design, theoretically yes.

4'th, see point two, I can't find any info on this unit.
