The Aquaero is also a product that has matured over many years and has been constantly adds functionality. With version 6, the controller now reached a level of development that makes the Aquaero without exaggeration the best fan and water control at all. The features are simply incredible and is even penibelste control freaks satisfy completely.
The Aquaero 6 is available in two different stages of development, which is not purely functional differ. The differentiation takes place rather on the basis of the controls. This is the Aquaero 6 XT. In contrast to the Pro edition it has no control keys on the display, however, comes with a remote control. The offered Blue version has blue instead of red status LED.
The core of the functionality - the fan and water cooling control - became clear drilled compared to Aquaero 5. The maximum current for each of the 4 amplifiers now is 2.5A (30W at 12V) and air-cooled up to 3A with optional water cooling. Short higher peak currents are also possible. The amplifiers are absolutely short circuit and switch with short-circuit in less than 1 / 100000s the output from in order to protect the hardware. Of course there is also a built-in temperature control and integrated current and voltage measurement.
Emphasize one must here to reach when designing low voltage drop of only 0,5-0,8V between power supply voltage and output. Thus it is for example possible to connect 20 Airstream fan at each output and control with any desired voltage. If you just does not have any 80 fans on hand, then you can also connect an output at each pump D5 or even 40 fan and two D5 pumps. It falls to as little heat, no heat sink is installed on Aquaero.
Brutal power alone is not everything. The Aquaero 6 has also been issued to all fan connectors with the possibility to connect PWM fans. This can be in addition to the PWM control also switched off completely. Thus, now all the possibilities given to make use of all types of fans.
Of course, a software for accurate measurement and adjustment of the cooling systems is also in version 6 with it. Especially for water cooling is very interesting, the connected fan to fix on the radiator depending on the measured water temperature. It even complex curves for increasing the speed can be programmed with increasing water temperature. Various profiles for different applications (eg .: OC, Gaming, Office, Video) and even Eventlogs also allow diverse variations.
The internal memory of Aquaero 6. Opposite the aquaero 5 has also been extended was equating increased by a factor of 4 and now offers significantly more reserves for log data and upcoming enhancements in firmware. To further increase reliability and to protect the device against errors many input circuits have been revised. In addition, a modern voltage monitor has been installed which when the permitted supply voltage to exceed 5V system disconnects the device from the power supply. Thus, a twisted by mistake plugged the power plug Aquaero 6 not destroyed.
Thus the Aquaero control is not only extremely practical and assumes a permanent fine adjustment, but at the same time prepares enjoy tinkering and expand the control bandwidth.
