    Introduction
    Sunbeam is a new company that has invested Research and Development resources in optoelectronics technology. This has led them to produce a range of products based on cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL), cases, fans and fan control systems. Today we look at the Rheobus fan control system.


    First Impressions
    The small box I receive contained just the necessities- the control unit, Molex pass-thru cable, self assembly instruction guide and the fixing screws. The Rheobus is supplied as a kit - OK, mine came pre-assembled - but assembly doesn't look complex and the only specialist tools would be a side cutter and a small soldering iron. It's all well within the ability of the average PC enthusiast to put together as you are essentially just fitting the components that attach to the front facia.

     

    The Rheobus unit itself is a very nice polished aluminum, and the four control pots have a nice reassuring click and smooth movement. Soldering and components are clean and professional looking in presentation, no sign of ham-fisted chimpanzee assembly here. So when viewed from inside or out, you will not be disappointed by it's clean looks.

     

    What's in the box?

     

     

     

    LEDs indicate power to fans 

    Although the test unit I received had just red LED, you can order a mix of blue and red LEDs, this is a great option and will certainly get your unit noticed with it's individuality.

    The 4x pots will vary the voltage of any device attached, this can be fans or a mix of CCFL, so pretty much anything from the SunBeam range. The Rheobus itself can handle around 20W of combined power to the four connectors, and as a single CCFL uses ~4W of power, and a fan even less, I'd say that 20W was ample.
