FSP is expanding its Twins Series redundant power supplies family with the introduction of new 500W and 700W versions. While the 500W is now available for sale in select markets, the 700W version is expected to arrive soon. The FSP Twins Series PSUs can easily fit inside most ATX tower cases out there and offer consumers a reliable solution for home mail, web, or email servers without needing to jump up to more costly form factors.
As is quite clearly by the name, the Twins series power supplies feature two independent power modules, each with its own power adapter. Under normal conditions, the energy load is shared by the two modules with an aim to maximize efficiency and stability. However, if one of the two module fails, the other automatically takes over as a clean fail safe. To avoid any downtime, the failed module can be replaced even while the system is running, thanks to it being hot-swappable.
Compatible with most standard ATX cases, the FSP Twins series PSUs can be installed without any special bracket. To ensure maximum motherboard compatibility, both ATX 12V and EPS 12V connectors are provided with the power supplies.
Both the new Twins PSUs come with 80 Plus Gold certification, offering up to 90% efficiency. They also feature a dedicated dual ball-bearing fan, premium capacitors, over current protection, short circuit protection, over voltage protection, and fan failure protection. The PSUs come backed by a 5-year warranty and a MTBF of 100,000 hours.
The FSP Twins Series 500W/700W versions have been priced at a MSRP of $399/$499 respectively in the United States.
