Superior Cooling System for Industrial Applications
The cooling fan can be disabled by unplugging this power connector from the PCB.
The 8-port RocketU 1388D (RU1388D) features the improved cooling system first developed for our 20G RocketU 1400 Series.
The full-length anodized aluminum heat sink now features an integrated low-noise cooling fan to help ensure the USB controller hardware does not overheat, even when installed into crowded hardware environments, or custom-built chassis required for industrial applications.
The fan however is an optional component. If the RocketU 1388D has been installed into a platform capable of maintaining the recommended temperature thresholds, the fan can be safely disabled (simply unplug the power connector from the controller’s PCB).
The heat sink’s passive cooling ability is more than adequate for your average computing environment. This feature is useful for sensitive working environments, such as a media editing or streaming platform, which are designed to minimize noise and vibration.
