ATX12V version 2.2 power supply

Model BP550 PLUS

Antec Basiq series power supplies are built to be compatible with the ATX12V version
2.2 specification. They include triple 12V output circuitry that delivers safer and
more reliable output to your system’s components, as well as higher energy
efficiency, which reduces power consumption by up to 25%, saving you money
on your electricity bill. In addition we’ve included a variety of protective circuitry:
OPP (Over Power Protection), OVP (Over Voltage Protection), and SCP (Short
Circuit Protection).
BP550 PLUS includes Universal Input with Active Power Factor Correction (PFC).
Universal Input allows you to connect your Antec Basic power supply to any AC
power outlet between 100~240V without having to worry about setting a voltage
switch. Active PFC improves the power factor value to the power supply by altering
the input current wave shape, helping the power plant provide power to users
more efficiently.

Power Switch:

This power supply comes with a main power switch. Make sure you turn the
switch to the ON ( I ) position before you boot up your computer for the first time.
In normal operation there is no need to turn the switch to the OFF (O) position
since the power supply is equipped with a soft on/off feature which turns your
computer on and off through the soft switch on your computer case. You may
need to turn the switch to the OFF position occasionally should your computer
crash and you cannot shut it down through use of the soft switch.


1. Turn off the hard power switch on your old power supply if any.
2. Open your computer case. Follow the directions provided in your case manual.
3. Disconnect all power connectors from the motherboard and from the peripheral
devices such as case fans, hard drives, optical drives, floppy drives, etc.
4. Disconnect the power cord from your old power supply.
5. Remove the existing power supply from your computer case and replace it
with your new Antec power supply. (Illustration 1)
