BFXLS-219 :: BitFenix Recon fan controller — black
BitFenix Recon, 5.25" Lüftersteuerung 5-Kanal
Touchscreen SofTouch 5-channel fan controller (each 30 W) from BitFenix with remote control via the Internet
Attractive and innovative design coupled with greater flexibility and functionality — these are the fundamental requirements that BitFenix places on its own product range. Therefore, it's no surprise that the Recon fan controller has a visually attractive design, yet is also equipped with the SofTouch interface that is typical of BitFenix. BitFenix didn't stop there though! They have also integrated a wide range of innovative features that offer a high level of functionality.
As previously mentioned, the basis of the Recon controller is formed by the plastic, called SofTouch by BitFenix, which gives the 5.25-inch model a sleek and unique appearance. The monochrome display, which takes up most of the space, is the main eye-catching feature on this unit. Furthermore, since this unit features a touchscreen, there is no need for any additional operating controls, which makes the unit look much more visually appealing. Only the product name and BitFenix is written in white lettering in the left and right corners of the unit.
In total, five fans can be connected via 3-pin connection and controlled. In addition, the scope of delivery includes five additional temperature sensors, which can be freely positioned and enable heat development to be monitored individually, thereby enabling direct control of the cooling effect. Power is supplied via the power supply unit by means of a 4-pin Molex connector.
The display is clearly structured and simultaneously shows the speed of one of the fans and the measured temperature of the assigned sensor. The revolution speed can be adjusted using the plus and minus symbols. The fan channel is set from numbers 1 - 5. The user can also select between manual and automatic mode. Adjustments are carried out directly by touching the corresponding symbol on the display.
Yet the absolute best function is yet to come. Connecting the Recon to a PC via USB connection is a unique, yet remarkably simple process, whereby two USB connectors are connected to the USB motherboard header. With the help of just the two integrated processors and a type of web server, the user is able to use any Internet-enabled device to access the fan controller, query the temperatures or even control the fans remotely
