Just getting into mining (great timing, I know) and picked up an S19 pro. I’m not great with electrical but I have a licensed professional I trust. My questions pertain to what type of infrastructure I need to safely and efficiently run my S19 Pro. Had my electrician install a 20A duplex receptacle (so two receptacles…each one on its own circuit). He tells me the way he wired it, each individual receptacle can push 2kW/120V; we did this with the miner in front of us knowing it needs to draw 3.6ish kW and he assumed the two male power inputs on the unit’s PSU would each pull up to 120V and half the necessary wattage, combine in the PSU to provide the unit with the (up to) 240V and wattage needed to power the unit safely and sufficiently.
My question is, is this how Bitmain designed the PSU to work, or does each of the power inputs need to be 200V+ individually (ie, I am being an arrogant American and incorrectly assuming everything is built to suit my needs)? I’m happy to have him come back and install 240V receptacles, I am asking more for my own personal understanding.
S19 Pro videos & info online is sparse, but I looked up S17 info incl Bitmain’s own S17 setup instruction here https://support.bitmain.com/hc/en-us/articles/360021217114-How-to-set-up-a-new-S17-Pro-S17 and it’s not crystal clear to me.
Either way, is it advisable for each individual receptacle to run on its own circuit, or should the machine be powered by two cords (of sufficient voltage per above) on the same circuit?
