    Those are some big ass caps.... My guess is a system for powering those old tape data recorders that were on those big reels. Like the ones you see in old movies.

    The digital logo is a give away. Its the PSU for a rackmount system, most likely some 90's era DEC Alpha server.

    Yeah, it looks similar to models I worked with a long time ago. They were modular units with reduntant power supplys on each box. You then stacked servers, tapes, and storage units or whatever to those PSU's.

    Close... A little more vintage though...

    If I'm not mistaken... I think I have something VERY freaking simluar to that in my closet. Kind of played with it like a monkey doing a math problem (still has its guts) and it's been long forgotten until now.

    Is it a tape unit for a DEC VAX? Since you said it had something to do with tapes and stuff, All in all Im pretty certain its a DEC VAX rackmount, except, all the VAX gear Ive ever seen is grey, not black, so I am kinda curious as to what model it is.

    I know, I know, its the power supply to the pump of a Co2 laser! yeah yeah thats it!

    OK I give up. Why don't you just tell us what it is ok? :D Or provide some higher rez images so we can cheat and see some model numbers.

    Salvaged PSU from a PDP-11...

    This one supplied the logic boards and stuff.

    I have another one from the same unit (different rack level) that supplied the disk drives and controller etc.

    :)

    You should have seen the huge Hard Disk that was in this thing...

    :D

    Wife wouldn't allow me to haul that out here from CA though... Didn't work anymore anyway...

    ;)
