Sliding the top panel off the HCP-1000 reveals the inner-workings of the unit. The layout is very tidy and takes the form of a server-class full-bridge LLC design with a synchronous rectification based on a DC-DC topology. HCP-1000 uses an extensive range of protective standards which include: Over Current Protection (OCP), Over Voltage Protection (OVP), Under Voltage Protection (UVP), Short Circuit Protection (SCP), Over Power Protection (OPP), Over Temperature Protection (OTP), Surge & Inrush Protecion (SIP), No Load Operation (NLO) & Brown-Out Protection (BOP).
HCP-1000 also takes advantage of two Japanese hold-up solid capacitors which are rated at 450v and 105C.
