  • When the load is connected, the output voltages drop below normal
  • Malfunctions of the PWM controller and its circuits
  • Damage to the optoelectronic isolation
  • Breakdown of key transistors
  • Changing the parameters of capacitors in the primary and secondary circuits of the UPS

When the Asic power supply is turned on, the relay clicks several times. No output voltages appear. What needs to be checked?

You should start by checking the serviceability of the auxiliary power supply + 12V, KKM, PWM controller, power circuit.

The fan in the miner's PSU does not work, there is no 12 Volt. I want to learn how to repair power supplies with my own hands, is it real?

The power supply of the formation of 12 volts is possibly faulty. First, check the mains voltage. The training takes place in practice, the program contains a sufficient amount of fundamental knowledge necessary to conduct correct diagnostics and understand the operation of the UPS.

The power supply stops working for a few seconds, and after a few minutes it turns on again, and so on all the time. What could be the reason?

Overtemperature protection is most likely triggered. Pay attention to the operation of the fan. There may be internal dust from prolonged work and not carrying out routine maintenance. Inappropriate power supply or high ambient temperature. During the training, you will learn how to eliminate such breakdowns.

The power source does not turn on, and a characteristic high-frequency whistle is heard. During the check, punctured output transistors were found. When new keys are installed, they heat up to a high temperature for a minute, then fail again.

In a resonant source, the inverter is loaded onto an oscillatory circuit consisting of a choke, a primary winding of a transformer, and a capacitor. Check the waveform with an oscilloscope, if it differs from the desired diagram, eliminate the faulty element, re-check the waveform. Only then can the power switches – transistors – be soldered. The training program is built mainly on practice. You will be able to correctly troubleshoot PSU faults.

The fan is working normally, there is no 12 volt output.

Possible undervoltage of the mains (160 – 190 volts). Because of this, the power protection is triggered. Check if the power supply unit has a short circuit at the output. Most likely there is an overcurrent.

Is it possible to check a faulty transformer if all the piping and the starting circuit are in good order, and all suspicions fall on it. The power supply does not start.

To do this, you need to know the circuitry, make sure that other nodes are working. Use an oscilloscope and a PWM pulse generator. After completing training at Bgacenter, you will be able to independently identify faults in the transformer and its strapping.

I bought mining equipment. I have already learned how to restore the hash of the board, I want to master the repair of power supplies step by step. At the moment, there is a UPS with normal input voltage, the fan is not working. Possible reason?

You should start by checking the pins of the connection between the fan and the board. Make sure that the fan itself is working.

The power supply is working normally and suddenly shuts down. It does not start anymore until you switch the network. Will we study such malfunctions and their repair in the courses on repairing power supplies?

At the moment of switching on, the current protection is triggered. Instantaneous current exceeds the protection of the power supply.

The standby microcircuit in the DIP-8 case has burned out. It is not possible to determine its name; it is also impossible to determine the strapping of SMD resistors and capacitors. How to solve this problem?

It is possible to determine the ratings of components only if there is an electrical circuit diagram or an identical block. And also knowing the device, you can use the datasheet and build the harness.

Where to buy spare parts for repairing UPS asiks? During the training, tell us, give links to reliable suppliers?

In well-proven stores, online stores, from donors of the corresponding modules, where original and serviceable spare parts are clearly installed. On the course, we will start with this, we will tell you about trusted companies, both from Russia and from China, supplying spare parts for UPS repair for miners.
