Default PS Pinout, HP/Compaq Proliant DL320S?

Does anyone happen to have the pinout (really, more of an edge-
connector-out) for the power supply for the Proliant DL320S rack mount
system.

The power supplies are 575W, hot swappable units which output 47A @
12V and 5A @ 5V. The connector is an edge-connector type on the inside-
end of the unit, which clearly slides into some kind of connector--a
part number for that mating connector would be great too, but why ask
for miracles?

The markings on the power supply a

PS-2601-1C-LF
Regulatory Model# HSTNS-PL09
Part # 398713-001
Spares # 405914-001

Thank you for any helpful or humorous suggestions,

Jeff

Neither I'm afraid.

What a wierd question. A DL320 hot-plug power supply is just that. No good
for anything else, and you wouldn't want to do anything else with it. And if
you did, you'd have a good enough idea of what you wanted to do and how to
go about doing it to not have to ask this sort of question in this sort of
newsgroup.

To get that sort of information, I would expect that you'd have to delve
deep into HP engineering archives, and the people who can do that are way
removed from anything sufficiently sanitised to put into a publicly
releasable format. (ie. it's level 3 information - we only ever get to talk
to level 1, or level 2 if we're really screwed)

I posted some detailed power supply wiring and signal description data for
the PL3000s awhile back; useful for experimenters and repair efforts.

To get that sort of information, I would expect that you'd have to delve
deep into HP engineering archives, and the people who can do that are way
removed from anything sufficiently sanitised to put into a publicly

Briefly I had contact some years ago with a "level 3" engineer who forwarded
to me internal specs on thin clients; wish that it were still so

Perhaps. Sure it is good for other things. No I don't. :-) Or
more to the point, I know there's going to be ground, 12V and 5V
standby connections on the thing. Plus, from the documentation, I've
gathered that there is a fan control signal from the host unit.
Additionally, there's likely to be some soft-power-on signal line.
But there may be additional signal lines which, e.g., support
redundancy of which I am not aware and which would be very difficult
to figure out without some specialized knowledge.

The basic stuff I can figure out with a multi-meter, but I'd rather
not experiment trying to find the power-on signal line if I can avoid
it, because randomly applying voltage to connectors is usually a bad
idea.

The things that it is good for is any application for which a person
wants an affordable high capacity 12V supply. At 47 amps the thing
way outruns most of the bench supplies available. It will be a great
supply for high intensity LEDs (with the addition of a current
regulator per every string of 3 LEDs). And since they were about $12
each new, they're about 10% as expensive as any other supply with half
the capacity that I have seen.

(ie. it's level 3 information - we only ever get to talk
to level 1, or level 2 if we're really screwed)


I'm hoping to find a hacking minded person who has messed with the
supplies. This, while not a promising group, is just about the only
group whose topic might cover that particular piece of hardware.
