dB-4496 fan
« on: March 20, 2006, 10:58:11 PM »

Yes, I'm a fan of the dB-4496 modular series.  But I was actually wondering if such a frame (housing two M*DA 824 and nothing else) could operate safely without the fan running, if the lid is off and the room is air conditioned.

I'd keep the lid on to protect from dust...

I've got a fully loaded chasis in front of me here and have never had the fan running.  Never noticed a heat issue (not hot to the touch).

IIRC, I was told by the folks at Lavry to not worry about it unless your in a very warm room or the unit is next to other gear that runs hot.  You would be wise to confirm those statments rather than take my word for it.  E-mail the tech support at Lavry.

Hi,

You can operate the unit without a fan, completely loaded (say 8CH AD or 8CH DA or any combination) even at elevated temperatures. The fan was put there for extreme temperatures. I have not yet seen a case where the fan is needed.

Open the lid, look for the fan power connector. It is marked J2, on an L shape board in front of the power supply (red and black wires). Pull the connector out, and you eliminated the fan operation.
