Bitmain, the largest crypto mining company in the world (both for hardware and mining pools), has released a new generation of power supplies for miners called APW7. According to the company, this new product is a next-generation power supply that is efficient and optimized to help the customers to achieve the best possible results while mining cryptos.
This product was created to save energy, which can optimize the power that you use while mining with this power supply. The company affirms that this is the best product in the market right now.
The product is already available for sale for the price of $105 USD. You can buy it on the official site of the company and it will be shipped to any place in the world after seven days.
APW7 Details And Specs
The new Antminer APW7 is a DC power supply with high efficiency produced by Bitmain. It has a single-phase AC input and a single DC 12V output to meet the common DC load within 12V 1800W.
This product was specially created for hardware that needs strict power supply requirements and it is suitable for miners. The power supply is small-sized, low-voltage and has protection against short circuit, overheat and overload.
The output power of the power supply is 1800W at 220-240V input, which is more than 200W compared to the last generation of the same product that was made by Bitmain. When connected to 110V, the maximum power is only 1000W.
Bitmain highlights the high conversion efficiency of the hardware as one of its most important features. According to the company, the APW7 elevates it to 95%, higher than the APW3. This makes for a service that is considerably more efficient than the hardware made by other companies. This will allow the user to save electricity and, therefore, money.
In an example given by the company, if you use an Antminer S9i-13T with this product instead of the older APW3 and have 1,000 mining machines, you can save up to $16,863 USD in electricity bills yearly if you pay $0.10 USD per kWh.
Another feature is the heat dissipation design that guarantees more stability even under high temperatures. The product will be able to go full load until 60º C.
Bitmain was founded in 2013 and it dedicates its activities to mining, creating hardware and managing mining pools, especially for Bitcoin. The company is known for the quality of its mining equipment and its large share in the market.
Also, the company has recently been in the center of some controversies because it owns almost half of the Bitcoin hash rate, which has become more centralized lately and this has drawn some criticism towards the company and the centralization of the market.
