Hello PS Audio,
Because of an online discussion/conversation I had I noticed there are conflicting specifications for maximum continuous/peak load numbers for P3 (and perhaps also P5/P10). There’s a difference in the specs on the website compared to those in the manuals.
Can yan please clarify what the ‘true’ specifications are? Has there been a hardware revision?
I also remember that some time back PS Audio mentioned maximum peak currents: 40A for P3, 50A for P5 and 70A for P10. I can no longer find these numbers. Are they still true? If yes, for a 230V AC input into the P3 this comes to a peak power output of 230*40=9200W. This also is a number much higher than the peak load specs, should these numbers be seen as a very short term peak output capability, perhaps for a small number of milliseconds?
On your website http://www.psaudio.com/perfectwave-p3-power-plant/ and then tab ‘Specifications’ the numbers for the P3 are:
|Maximum Continuous Load||800VA||1200VA|
|Maximum Peak Load||1000VA||1500VA|
Hope you can shed some light on this, thank you in advance!
