Hippotizer V4 systems use an auto-sensing switch mode power supply that is capable of handling 110-250v 50/60hz power.
|Note: The switch mode power supplies are sensitive to fluctuations in power supply voltage and power loss. Green Hippo strongly recommends using an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) on all Hippotizer systems.|
In common with all computers; allow the Hippotizer to boot down completely before removing the mains supply to the system.
|Note: The Hippotizer Taiga and Boreal uses PCIe based solid state storage that must be shut down correctly. In the event that power is lost abruptly, the D: drive on a Taiga may not appear in Windows for several minutes on the next start-up. (Up to 10 minutes) This is normal as the drive re-builds itself. There is no data loss from this process. On a Boreal after an abrupt power loss the D: Drive may not appear in Windows without a further restart of the system.|
The power inlet on a Karst, Boreal and Taiga are Neutrik PowerCon True1 with a pass through. Take care not to overload the input power by using the through connections: a Taiga for example uses 1100VA, which at 120v would mean only two systems can be connected to a 20Amp feed.
As an option, Taiga and Boreal can be fitted at the factory with a redundant power supply. This provides the system with two separate, hot-swappable power modules. In the event one of the supplies fails, an audible alarm will sound and the failed supply should be replaced as soon as possible.
|Note: Taiga and Boreal use different wattage power supplies and can not be inter-changed.|
Take care when handling the Power supply as it may retain hazardous voltages long after being unplugged from a power source.
Never attempt to disassemble or repair a power supply.
|Note: Hippotizer systems contain delicate electronic equipment that is sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). Take appropriate ESD precautions before handling internal components of the system.|
