What are all the voltages of the 24 pin connector?

ATX 24-Pin 12V Power Connector Pinout (ATX v2. 2)

Pinout Reference for ATX 24-pin 12V Power Connectors
1 +3.3V +3.3 VDC
2 +3.3V +3.3 VDC
3 COM Ground
4 +5V +5 VDC

What electrical voltage is used in Germany?

In Germany the supply voltage is 230V. If the appliance or its power supply are not dual voltage rated, the single voltage appliance will have to be used alongside a voltage transformer or converter to allow the appliance to work safely and properly (unless the appliance operates at 230V).

Are all 24 pin connectors the same?

The motherboard main power cables The ATX standard has two different versions of the main power cable: the original 20 pin cable, and the the newer 24 pin cable. If your power supply main power cable and motherboard main power connector both have the same number of pins then they’ll (of course) fit together just fine.

Will 240 volts work in Europe?

100-240 tells you the voltage range: Europe standardized on 220 volts for its standard household power supply. So the voltage range on your device needs to cover 220 volts or more for your electronics to work in Italy, France and most of Europe.

What is the 24 pin connector for?

It connects a power supply to an ATX style motherboard. A power supply with a 24-pin connector can be used on a motherboard with a 20-pin connector by leaving the four additional pins disconnected. However, if you have a 24-pin connection on your motherboard all 24-pins need to be connected.

Do Germans use 3 pin plugs?

Germany and Austria use two plug types, types C and F. In addition to the type C plug, Switzerland also uses the diamond-shaped type J plug with three round pins. (See photo.) All 3 countries have 230V supply voltage and 50Hz.

Can I use a 20 pin connector on a 24 pin motherboard?

“… you can plug a 20 pin cable into a 24 pin motherboard and it will work just fine. At least, it will for a while. They added those extra 4 pins for a reason. When you plug a 20 pin cable into a 24 pin connector you’re not providing the extra current carrying capacity which may be needed by the motherboard.

Why is there a pin missing on my 24 pin connector?

This empty pin on your 24 pin connector used to be home to a wire carrying -5V. Since around 2003 the -5V rail was removed from ATX specification and as a result most modern power supplies do not include it.

What are the power plugs and sockets in Germany?

In Germany the power plugs and sockets are of type F. Check out the following pictures. Type F: also known as “Schuko”. This socket also works with plug C and plug E.

How many volts are in a 24 pin power supply?

This connector has separate wires which supply voltages of 3.3 volts, 5 volts, and 12 volts. A 24-pin power supply adds an extra line each of 3.3 volts, 5 volts, and 12 volts, as well as an additional ground. These extra lines are used to satisfy the needs of newer technologies and more power-hungry peripherals.

What kind of voltage is used in Germany?

Just like the rest of Europe, the voltage in Germany is 230 volts and the frequency is 50 Hz. Germany has standardized on type F sockets and plugs. Type C and type E plugs can also be used thanks to their compatibility with type F sockets.

Is there a 24 pin PCI Express connector?

ATX 2.2 and later (ATX12V 2) is common ATX standard, 24 pin connector. Changes to ATX standard were made to support 75 watt PCI Express requirements. Most power is now provided on 12 V rails and the power on 3.3 V and 5 V rails was significantly reduced.
