See, this is what happens when you abandon the old nomenclature. When you meant " 60 CPS", you said, "You do realize 60Hz would be 60 beats per second.
You didn't abandon anything, I was trying , (apparently unsuccessfully), to reinforce your comment.
I believe the pulse is taken on the [SIZE=4]"BUH"[/SIZE], not the [SIZE=2]"bump"[/SIZE]. I should know this, what with having a toy heart valve and all that.
Nonsense. Power supplies don't kill people, electricity does. Face it, if you took away their power supplies, they'd just find another way to kill themselves. For example, putting one end of an extension cord into the wall, and the other end......There exists no other solution than to ban all computer power supplies. Since it was the power supply that killed this person, computers should not be allowed to be sold with such instruments of death.
Personally I don't believe the story being told to us. Something about the burns don't make since. I've been zapped by wall current many times. I've been zapped by small devices that stored several hundred volts. The hardest I have ever been jolted was by an automobile coil. The only time I have ever been burned by electricity was from a high powered CB antenna, pushing well over 1000 Watts of signal. I don't see a power supply reproducing these conditions un-plugged or otherwise, so I am inclined to agree with the guest comment.Yup , also capacitors release their charge in seconds so unless he touched a 2000V capacitor im not sure if he could get electrical burns which means that whatever he touched it had a long powerful flow of 70+ V and some high amps not a simple burst ( though even a burst can kill )
Yep, they have enough power in them to kill hence hardly anyone ever bothers to open PSUs unless you're an electrician or 100% know what you are doing and the risk. The caps can hold a charge for months.I'm no rocket surgeon but, does a power supply really stores all that energy after unplugged?
What I always do after unplugging is press the power button on the computer to drain the remaining electricity
