ATX PSU mods

Build two, and wire in series. You will have close enough to 28V at 20A. You will need to isolate the PCB from the case off one of the power supplies.

Hi all,
Have been looking at the article in SC re converting AT power supplies
to 13.8V bench supply. Has anyone done this with an ATX supply? In
addition to being able to get 13.8V @ 20A, I'd also like to modify one
to give around 28V @ whatever current it can produce - preferrably >15A

I can't see that an ATX PSU would be any different, except that you'd need to either short the PS_ON pin to ground permanently, or install an SPST switch to switch the PSU on and off.

In an ATX PSU, the "on" signal is momentary - so a fixed wire or toggle switch won't do. A push-button would sffice.

Actually a fixed wire "does" fine.

The case button is momentary, but the motherboard's PS_ON output is not.

When I power up a new system for the first time, I use a jumper wire between the PS_ON and Ground pins. The only load connected to the PSU at this time is an expendable HD.
