    Default please identify this (big)server power supply

    I need to know the form factor this power supply(name) is, . is this an outdated power supply, is it still used in todays servers

    here is the link to look at the picture

    power sup pictures by ess818 - Photobucket
    or
    http://s1222.photobucket.com/albums/...8/power%20sup/

    its a 840 watt
    its a dual power 840 atx d84x-un2
    pc power and cooling inc.

    its the size of two normal power supplys in one unit, its big and tall, it came out of a ridiculously large case that I dont have anymore if I were to guess at the size its maybee 9" tall maybe 6 wide by7deep (only a guess)

    It's two Redundant PSU's in what looks to be a 6U container.

    Is there any more info on the system?

    Default type of server box it goes into

    is this type of power supply still used today can it be sold on ebay. how much is it worth retail.

    it also says 97 power factor on it

    what would the computer case(server) that it goes into be called

    and how to do I know if its a 6u or not

    the case it came out of I dont have anymore but it was enoumous it was maybee 4 feet long by maybee 1 foot wide by apx 3 or so feet tall (again a guess)


    this was near a fire but not in one only smoke deposits thouroughly tested to work and cleaned in and out

    Without a picture of the internal composition of the PSU, this can only ever be guesswork. It's pointless...
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    It's definitely something that's not used anymore. These days, you can get 840W in a 2+1 redundant set up that is more reliable, smaller and runs cooler.

    If you want to find out more about the power supplies, I'd suggest pulling them out of the container.

    If you don't mind my asking, if you don't use the case any more and this unit looks like it was found in a burned down server room, why do you want to know?

    Sell them on eBay? They look pretty rough. You might get $1 for them.

    Apple will not even work on equipment that smells of cigarette smoke.

    In comparison,

    Electrical fires really do put out a fair amount of carcinogens and toxins in the smoke and residue.

    Not many people would want them, much less someone with a clean server room.

    You might actually have to pay to dispose of them.

    Sorry, just the facts.
