[OT] g5 power source questions
Recently I had four g5's with a burned power source (sorry, don't know if
that's the actual translation, but it's the "transformer with the radiator
and the `G5' on it" :-P). The technician said that it was because the UPS
was delivering a square wave and not sine wave to the g5. The power
source burned in this situation (all in the same way): there was a lost of
power, the person using the g5 shut it down and then we disconnected the
ups from the outlet. When the power came back, we reconnected the UPS and
then turned on the g5. In that precise moment, the g5 power source
exploded. We thought it was a problem of the UPS, but apparently it's not,
and I'm thinking it could be a problem of the g5, because all the other
equipments use the same kind of UPS (there are other common pcs, g4s and
printers) and all of them are ok... anyone had some similiar experience?
please answer to my personal email to not fill the list with OTs emails.
