This power supply uses four Schottky rectifiers on its secondary.
On power supplies based on half-bridge topology calculating the maximum theoretical current/power is easy: we just need to add the maximum current supported by all diodes connected to a given output.
The +12 V output is produced by two STPS20S100CT Schottky rectifiers connected in parallel, which can deliver up to 20 A each (10 A per diode, measured at 150° C), thus the maximum theoretical current the +12 V line can deliver is of 40 A, which equals to 480 W at 150° C. The maximum current this line can really deliver will depend on other components.
The +5 V output is produced by one STPS30S45CW Schottky rectifier, which support up to 30 A (15 A per diode, measured at 135° C). So the maximum theoretical power the +5 V output can deliver is of 150 W. Of course the maximum current (and thus power) this line can really deliver will depend on other components.
The +3.3 V output is produced by another STPS30S45CW Schottky rectifier, which support up to 30 A (15 A per internal diode, measured at 140° C). So the maximum theoretical power the +3.3 V output can deliver is of 99 W. Of course the maximum current (and thus power) this line can really deliver will depend on other components.
Even though this power supply has a separated rectifier for the +3.3 V output, this rectifier is connected to the same transformer output as the +5 V line, so the maximum current +5 V and +3.3 V can pull together is limited by the transformer.
This power supply thermal sensor is located close to one of the ends of the secondary heatsink, as you can see in Figure 12. This sensor is used to control the fan speed according to the power supply internal temperature and also to shut it down if the power supply implements over temperature protection (OTP) – the majority of power supplies on the market, including the reviewed unit, don’t have this protection.
On this power supply the big electrolytic capacitors from the voltage doubler are rated at 85° C (and manufactured by Teapo, a Taiwanese company), while the electrolytic capacitors from the secondary are rated at 105° C and coming from several vendors (Teapo, Fcon and KSC).
