  • Inline power supply testers tease

    Here's a tease of a new product we have under development. It's an inline PSU tester for desktop PC power supplies.

    PC Power supply tester Prototype 2

    It's early days at the moment, but we'll have more to say over the coming months.

      After many prototypes of the Inline power supply tester, we are now only a few weeks away from mass production. We've switched screens, changed the buttons, re-did the design, got a bunch of custom cables made up and we are in the process of doing some custom plastic moulding at the moment, plus finalising the PC software.

      Here's a few more photos from the current prototype unit.

      PSU timing testing (we check the T1, T2, T3 and T6 times and the power OK signal)

      And a view of the rear of the unit showing the cable running from the power supply, the power cable going to the motherboard, and the tester in series.

        Updated on inline PC power supply tester development. Hardware and software are now finalised. Just waiting on final plastic cases to be done. Here what a couple of screens looks like (in a rough prototype plastic).

          Just about finished the PC monitoring software (Windows based).
          Software will be free with the hardware.

          Here's a screen shot from the beta release of PSUTest.

          Of course, you can just use the device standalone if you want. The PC monitoring software is optional.
