It is an NEC 806-942481-001 it was in a server a my other half office, they moved her office to another town.  Being a county union office they decided to go with new servers, mind you the servers were only about 6 months old.  Knowing how much I fool with this stuff she grabbed this supply, it weighs 9.2lbs.  I have had it sitting in my stash for a few years now, am wondering what if anything I should do with it.  Everything about it is Mil grade.  It looks like it could power several high end systems WOW what a gamer!!!  I have not had the heart to chuck it, I am curious just how powerful it is.  I tried searching the web with no luck.  Anyone have any input?

Edit with photo!  It is a tank!   A gamer could run a 1/2 dozen hot video cards!

Think model railways - 12V for power, 5 V for control systems - Wow !

 

But I can't help you with what it was originally designed for !

I saw the servers that the union had they were near twice the size of any of our larger towers, they were custom with an on site IT guy.

Appears to be proprietary, a -2.2V rail? Unlikely to have an application in any other computer I would think.
