What happens when the power supply's protection feature kicks in?
Seasonic power supplies are equipped with strong safety features to protect the unit and the system components attached to it against electronic failures. If any of these rare occurrences sets in, the power supply will turn off. Should your power supply shut down unexpectedly please seek technical assistance.
Over Temperature Protection
This protection feature monitors the operating temperature of the entire power supply and if it becomes too high it switches off the unit.
Over Current Protection
If the load on any of the output rails exceeds the specified limit, the power supply automatically switches off.
Over Power Protection
If the output rating (maximum load limit) of the power supply is insufficient for the system’s requirements, this protection function is activated to switch off the power supply.
Short Circuit Protection
Should there be an output short-circuit, this protection feature immediately shuts down the power supply in order to safeguards it and all system components against electrical damage by.
Over Voltage Protection
If the voltages increase above a certain preset tolerance value on any of the output rails, the power supply automatically shuts down.
Under Voltage Protection
If the voltages fall below a certain tolerance value on any of the outputs, the power supply automatically switches off.
