Abstract

Disclosed is a system for maximizing safety in redundant power systems. Allowing power supply main output voltages to be active while a power supply is not installed within a system is a safety hazard. To prevent this condition from occurring, the design of power control logic prevents the power supply main outputs from being supplied unless the power supply is installed into a system.
