There is a 15v AC to DC converter which I want to use to power 2.5 inch hard drives. The HDD only requires +5VDC.
I’m about to purchase one of these converters. I haven’t been able to find any information on circuits or power conditioning between the supply and the physical connection to the SATA power interface. Can I plug the VDC out directly to the HDD and expect them to work?
The best info I’ve been able to find is ATX specification which calls for +/-5% voltage and ripple of <50 on the +5VDC, both conditions are met by this converter (+/-4% and 20).
