Power supply unit is not included and available for extra payment.
Power consumption figures will vary with your PSU's efficiency, the ambient operating temperature and the accuracy of the power meter.
Bitmain recommends the use of the APW3++ PSU with the Antminer L3. One APW3++ PSU can not power more than one Antminer L3.
All PCIe connectors on a hashing board need to be connected to the PSU for the hashboard to operate. Do not connect more than one PSU to the same hashing board!
Separate power supply to control board: there is one additional 6pin PCIe connector on the IO board which must be connected to the PSU to get power. Be sure to power on the miner only after all the PCIe connectors are connected to power supply.
Power Supply details:
The APW3++ can deliver a maximum power of only 1200W if it is connected to a 110V outlet. To obtain the rated power of 1600W, the APW3++ must be connected to a 220-240V outlet.
Interface Type: 5 pairs of 6 pin PCI-E connectors (i.e., 10 connectors) - so it's for one S9 or one L3+ or one D3
Basic setup instructions:
1. Plug power cable into power supply, don't plug cord into a wall outlet until you have finished step 2
2. Plug 9 (out of the 10) PCI-E connectors from the power supply into the miner (don't forget to plug one into the front section)
3. Plug ethernet cable into the miner and a router
4. Log into the router with your computer and look for connected devices area, look for one that says antminer and it will show the internal IP address
5. Put the miner IP address into your web browser to configure the miner (only works if your computer is on the same network)
6. In the settings, there will be an area to put the URL, username, and password (or no password) of the mining pool that you want to connect to (there are many mining pools out there, like nicehash, litecoinpool, antpool, etc...also you can add a total of 3 pools, the last two pools are backups in case the first one goes down.
Warning: The first 1-2 minutes the miner will be powering up, and it starts off by making a very very loud jet engine sound. The jet engine sound is normal, and it will do that sound when you update your pool settings or any other settings or restart the miner. After the jet engine sound, then it goes almost silent and then gets louder to a moderate loud vacuum sound (because it's mining), therefore you need a separate room or place to store the miner that is ventilated. If you live in an apartment, this might not even be possible because of nearby apartment neighbors and/or roommates.
