Fortron Sparkle ZEN Review

Inside Shots & Test Equipment »


I would like to thank Fortron Sparkle for supplying me with the unit for review.

FSP Group is a leader in the power supply industry in Taiwan and one of the top manufacturers in the world. Since the company's establishment in 1993, the management team has constantly improved R&D expertise, production capacity and product quality to consistently excel in this competitive marketplace.
FSP Group was founded from the companies Fortron Source and Sparkle Power Intl., the P means Power Supplies.

Today we have a very special PSU on the test bench - it is completely passive. Fortron trusts their design so much that they say a backup fan is not needed. When it gets too hot it will just turn off.

The FSP ZEN is also called FSP300-60GNF, in case you need to search for it at vendors. It has active PFC and a wide input voltage range of 99 to 265 V (auto-switched).

Shipping of the first units has already started and it should be widely available in May.
