FGPA Issues and Fan Speeds

  • Updated 2 years ago
I have read several posts re: FGPA fan speeds being incorrect or have quit (not sure about failure modes). If I may, I have 2 questions: 1) What does FGPA stand for and keep cool [I  looked in both manuals]. 2) How have some measured and found the RPM's of the fans?

SmartSDR constantly monitors the fan health and will report an error if the cooling efficiency drops below the established threshold.
