per hour  24/7 on average.   or 24 x 42 = 1000 kwatts a day

ok yea that is much better. I am possibly selling 5 of my s9's and if that sale goes thru, I will be buying an S15 and an s11 or maybe 3 s11's not decided yet.

Got back from the build out.
Need to figure out how to download photos from my phone.

We added an s15
installed awesome miner

we are up to

 535th btc
    6.6gh ltc had to downclock gear.

we will need to add an external fan  as the 95000 square foot warehouse did get too warm when NJ weather reached 67f on tues.

actual solar install  will be  months from now.  Buysolar will apply to power company  to see what they want to allow the 300k-watt install

We are pulling about 60kwatts  which  is higher then the install will do when complete  say 300/7 = 42 kwatts an hour 24/7/365


but the 60kwatts  raises average quicker.

We will be looking for another m10  on thurs the 7th

and more m10's down the road.

Did warehouse hold under 80f  or did it get too warm?

@ yankees  owner of warehouse said it got  warm  and now realizes that we will need at least 1 fan with a  good vent to the outdoors.

we are looking to see if we can install a 2 speed 10000cfm fan

above the exit door in the picture below

Looks great philip. I think you said you can only run one s15 with transformer in the other thread ? Did you have an exhaust fan in mind already?

What does the upper value mean, input voltage? If its 228v it should be safe for the S15 no? China uses 230v @50hz, like Europe.

at that shot  we were at 228  but it fluxes  as high as 243 as low as 220.

that transformer  attempts to flatten output to 220.  My testing shows it does that  pretty much spot on.

It is rated to do 22.7 amps  24/7/365  that is 22.7 x 220 = 4994  hence the 5000va rating

but  the input  power cord is 14 gauge  no way a 14 gauge  cable is going to handle 22.7 amps 24/7/365

I would trust it at 10-12 amps:

  so 10 x 220 = 2200 watts  
and 12 x 220 = 2640 watts

we are doing  about 1580 watts with it as I type.

the warehouse owner has a model in mind he is going to do that.

Next posts will show  new fan and  cleaned up wiring.

I will be doing some awesomeminer work with this setup.  For the next week or two.

Here is the s15 with the protection transformer...

You have the transformer on just a single S15 miner Phil?

And is this "Protection Transformer" the same as a "Voltage Stabilizer"?

I have 2 B1+ that keep going off and Tech support said to buy a voltage stabilizer, I do get 214-229 volts.

Also I think it will be too much of an investment if I can even find one to handle the 5000 watts from both miners.

No they are not the same. Strictly speaking a 'protection transformer' simply provides line isolation and a Farady shield between the primary and secondary windings to reduce the impact of noise and spikes as well as probably some other suppression components as well.

A stabilizer aka regulator actively adjusts the output voltage to keep it within a specific output range. Many/most will have suppression bits as well but like the one Phil has, the line-in and line-out are NOT isolated from each other.

they have a 208 to 220 boost

which would boost 204 to 216

That build out looks nice. Super cool that the warehouse owner has another location for a continued expansion.

I only noticed the 1 fan in the picture showing the red door to the warehouse. Had you considered using floor level intakes to bring the air into the space. It would help create a nice steady in from the bottom out from the top air circulation. I'm not sure what the quality of floor level air is there, but I imagine it wouldn't be much worse than what's floating by the fan. You would also be grabbing what would likely be the coolest air in the warehouse, bonus if it's a nice solid concrete slab.

yeah  But the owner does not want to cut that wall.

he is willing to put a fan to vent outside which will solve the issue for the summer.  today is cold 25f  so no issue.

And since build has both:

 btc 530 th
 ltc  6.6  gh

the price jump  yesterday  for both coins was very nice.

Its a regulador de voltaje, that's what we call them here...

Something like this:



Regulador Sola Basic Xellence 3000,3kva,bifasico,220v,2 Años
$ 6,990


I think they call them voltage stabilizer in Europe.

Yes, input can be a varying range (169V ~ 271V), and the output is a fixed (220v). They usually do come with peak protection and timer delay if power goes out of range. The smaller 120v cousins are very common for PC use here (and in many parts they are a must have if you don't want to be replacing PSUs every 3 months).

Just added more sound proofing on the floor Some rubber mats over  the same sound deadening material that is on the walls.

this month I will be adding some sound deadening as well - can hear my miners from the road lol - but it should also help with insulation against the summer heat.
