Space Gets some New Test Equipment


Its nothing fancy, but if you have a power supply you think is bad, or you think you have some bad network lines, you may want to come down to the space and borrow some new test equipment we have.  Read further on for the specs.  Thanks to the dozen or so people at LVL1 who pitched in to get this for us all to share.  For a link of other fine equipment we already have, see

ATX P.G. value display
Lower or higher P.G. values alarm
ATX output connectors check
Lower voltage detected alarm
Over voltage alarm
No voltage detected alarm
Plug-in your ATX power 24 pin and plug-in (P4/P6/P8) into the tester.
Turn on your ATX power supply

When detected Voltage is higher than Max. Value, “HH” will display on the screen.
When detected voltage is lower than table value (A), will alarm.
When detected voltage is higher than table value (B), will alarm.
P.G. value detected lower 100ms or higher 900ms, P.G. value is abnormal and alarm.
When abnormal happened, it will alarm and relative digit blink on the screen.
Each Voltage normal range:
+5V, +3.3V, +5VSB is ±5%;
