Sun X4100/X4200 AC PSUs
These are actually for Sun X4100 and X4200 servers and at a great price.

WOW LOUD!
I wish I had known how loud this was before ordering. The specs say "Internal Fan Speed Control" but it is one speed....super fast and super loud. High quality if you put it in a separate room.

High quality power supply
Very high quality unit at great price.
Have not found the logic combination to
activate the 3.3 volt output.

DC input?
If this is a typical switcher, where the first thing the line voltage hits is a bridge rectifier, then it should be able to work on DC, no?

If so, this would make an awesome 12 VDC supply for an electric vehicle conversion. My traction pack is 144 VDC (24 each 180AH 6V flooded-cell NiCd batteries), and I need something to power headlights, horn, stereo, etc. from.

People pay upwards of a thousand dollars for specialty 12V power converters.

But also, it would need to be hacked to produce 13.8 VDC, as you typically put a small lead-acid in so you can have the stereo on without engaging the traction pack.

Anyone been able to boost the 12VDC a bit?

Anyone verify that these will probably run on 144 VDC?

Running 4 of These in Parallel Using Active Load Sharing
I ordered 4 of these to power my quad-copter test bench (can’t beat this price). I'm running them in parallel for 180A @ 12VDC total using the Active Load Sharing capability. No need for big Schottky rectifiers. I figured Dr. Google could tell me how to do this, but I couldn’t find anything on how to connect the “12V CURRENT SHARE” pin (A2). Experimentation was the answer. Let me save you some time...

1) All common GND connections! AC GND = "12V RETURN" = "LOGIC RETURN"
2) Connecting "PS_KILL" pin (A1) to GND enables the 3.3V output. The 12V output won't work unless this is enabled.
3) Connecting "PSON" pin (B6) to GND enables the 12V output.
4) The fan is always on when AC power is present. Disabling the 12V and 3.3V outputs does not shut off the fan.
5) Active Load Sharing for 2+ PSUs in parallel is simple. Connect all the “12V CURRENT SHARE” pins (A2) together. This forces each of them to produce the same amount of current.
6) ¼” Male Quick Connect terminals work well for the 12V output connections. They can wiggle loose gradually, so I used hot glue to hold them in place.
7) I recommend using 208-240 VAC when running multiple PSUs. I used CAT# LCAC-433 because they have removable plugs, easy to replace with 240 V plugs.
