the switch and router gears fairly warm. I would watch out for that. I put two fans on both .

Nice!  I love the name :-P

 

Did you put a lid on it?  What does it look like mounted?  More pics please!

@cardins2u it doesnt go above 34 degrees c even on a really hot day. You can see temp in top right and through the fan also it runs colder with the lid/face on

 

the fan moves the entire case volume of air every second on themostat, i have realised the key is aluminium. 

 

As it disperses heat very well and is easily cooled,

 

with a combination of heating and cooling proces it can push cold air through the air filters very quick cooling the surface area of aluminium

 

i have also done extensive testing with thermal imaging

 

@OzPHB thereis a pic with the lid above its all aluminium each side

 

My generation 2 build was my favorite which i built over three months, i will try post a video.., which has a fantastic sleek aluminum shell though this frankensite build was more about how small can it be. And was a rough job built in one day for prototype testing

Nice work! Are you as remote as the map indicates or somewhere more coastal? Cause I can't help but think that the location on the map would get very hot!

 

Looks good anyway, do these deploy to customer sites or do you manage some kind of setup yourself?
