Drivo - should I fan to cool it?

Postby Mankul » Tue Sep 26, 2017 2:52 am

Hi all,

I just bought the Elite Drivo.

Im a previous owner of the Elite Turbo Muin, which gets hot easily and have leaked seals so I blow a fan directly at the metal heatsink to keep its temperature lower.

I do 250W for 2 hours often on Zwift and do lots of Zwift racing as well with high power bursts. All those power will be turned to heat somewhere on the Drivo.

Do you think I need to blow the fan at it? Im afraid that the electronic components might fail in a couple of years do to heat.

Don't worry, there's no need to put any cooling system around the Drivo.
In our factory, we always do heating tests on our products before putting them on the market.
The Drivo has been tested for 250 consecutive hours with power variating from 100W to 1700W and passed the test brillantly.
Also, consider that the sensor is quite far from the part that heats up.
