Transient Filtering Stage
We decided to disassemble this power supply to see what it looks like inside, how it is designed, and what components are used. Please read our “Anatomy of Switching Power Supplies” tutorial to understand how a power supply works and to compare this power supply to others.
On this page we will have an overall look, and then in the following pages we will discuss in detail the quality and ratings of the components used. At first appearance, the ZT Series 650 W looks a lot like the ZS Series 650 W internally. However, after a closer inspection we could see that the printed circuit board is not the same, and the ratings of the main components are different. In fact, the ZS Series 650 W is manufactured by High Power, and the ZT Series 650 W is manufactured by Great Wall, so they can’t be based on the same platform.
