Mainframe Powered Pump Fill Tool


Disclosed is a mainframe powered pump fill tool. The Mainframe Powered Pump Fill Tool (MPPFT) is additional tool that is attached between an existing assembly 'Clean/Fill Tool' and the Mainframe being filled. The additional tool provides remote power to the mainframe's pumps (and only the pumps) under the full control (including safety controls) of the 'Clean/Fill Tool.

Mainframe computers that are water cooled require the system to be fully filled for safe and efficient operation.
By applying power to the pumps during the fill process, the air is removed from the pump's propellers as well as other hardware in the mainframe.

  By Using the Clean/Fill Tool to remotely control the power, the mainframe itself does not need to be powered on. This saves time and allows the operation to be done in the assembly area
The MPPFT is an interface tool that works between the Clean/Fill tool and the Mainframe to be filled.

An embodiment of the tools has the following:

A tap off of house power with cables sending power to the Mainframe's pumps.

Ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) hardware, fuses and relays to provide safety controls to protect manufacturing personnel.

USB serial and converter to allow the Clean/Fill Tool's control box to sense levels and control the pumps.
360V power supply /

  Software to sense levels and control the pumps
The MPPFT supports controlling each of the two (2) pumps in a mainframe. An overview of the tool: UPIC cables...
