Cool runnings thanks to new fan controller
We’ve been working on integrating a new fan controller into some of our more powerful rack and mini PC’s and soon-to-arrive additions to our server range.
A sophisticated little device, the fan controller will be able to operate from either the 4-pin PWM motherboard CPU fan header or using a pre-programmed temperature probe. It will also be capable of driving up to 3 fans each with its own fine tuning speed adjustment.
Whilst not revolutionary in itself, some clever componentry will enable us to use much larger fans in our machines as a result, making for greatly improved cooling efficiencies and ultra-quiet operation. We’re excited about their arrival as they will make our units the perfect companion for working environments where noise sensitivity is important.
Take a look at the first shots of the controller accompanying this post.
