The High Current Pro Platinum 1,300W is manufactured by Delta, one of the most respected power supply OEM’s in the world. The HCP-1300 is built to the highest standards, using a full bridge topology and an LLC converter for lossless switching of the primary mosfets. The secondary side is using a synchronous rectification system and utilises a transformer to host the +12V fets.

Soldering on the main PCB is excellent.

The first section of the transient filtering stage is behind the AC receptacle. It consists of two Y caps and a single X cap. The main PCB is home to the remainder of the transient filtering components, including four Y caps, a single X cap, an MOV and two CM chokes.

The three layered modular PCB contains a series of Chemi Con electrolytic capacitors to help with ripple filtering to the DC outputs. Two DC-DC converters which generate the minor rails are on a PCB which is placed close to the modular PCB.

The design is using two ultra high grade Rubycon capacitors rated at 450V, 560μF each. These 105c rated capacitors will give a combined 1120μF delivery. The PFC controller is connected to a small PCB attached to the main PCB.

All in all, this is a fantastic design, using only the highest grade components throughout.
