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...

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.
