Cool upgrade

ElimuPis fitted with active cooling

“Intense use generates more heath”

The ElimuPi’s are being used more intense by schools. That means that the processor is busier and generates more heath. Last week, we discovered that this sometimes passed a critical boundary, after which the ElimuPi starts misbehaving until cooled down. Clearly not a desirable situation. We solved this by installing a fan in each ElimuPi as an addition to the already installed passive cooling (heatsinks). According to multiple tests, this massively brings down the temperature.

During CLASSworks‘ training visits to schools, the ElimuPis in use will also be fitted with a fan. Just to be sure.
