What is immersion cooling?
Immersion cooling is the process of heat removal from operating equipment by submerging (immersing) it into a cell with immersion liquid. This is technical liquid that has such unique properties as: incombustibility, low toxicity, inertness, highest dielectric properties. Thus, this liquid doesn’t react with anything and is absolutely dielectric, which makes it possible to use with any electric equipment without any harmful consequences. Equipment (ASICs, GPU with motherboard, power supplies) inside the cell is completely submerged into immersion liquid, which has 25 times higher thermal conductivity than air. Immersion cooling system ensures equal heat removal. However, temperature is maintained at 65-75 degrees (Celsius) with GPU and 85 degrees with ASICs usage. This temperature is optimal for heat utilization.
What increases the productivity of equipment?
Effective immersion cooling can safely increase mining equipment productivity by up to 40%. That result is achieved by increasing operating frequencies while maintaining thermal stability.
How does BiXBiT Miner reduce power consumption?
Immersion cooling allows devices to no longer use their own coolers, which dramatically reduces power consumption of each individual device. Savings on 864 GPUs powered by 6W supply units with all their coolers removed will be more than 3700 kW per month. For 192 ASIC devices, with natural power consumption of 70W, the saving will be almost 10,000 kW per year.
How is equipment arranged with such high density?
The immersion cooling system and the BiXBiT vertical arrangement system allow allocation of 192 ASICs or 864 GPUs inside the standard 10-feet ISO-container. For comparison, same container provided with air cooling can accommodate only 96 ASICs or 144 GPUs.
What is the delivery period?
Terms of delivery are approved at the stage of signing the contract, usually it is about 60 days.
How does the BiXBiT miner connect to the electrical network?
The BiXBiT mobile miner is equipped with all necessary electrotechnical infrastructure to supply power for accommodated equipment. Entire module arrangement is made taking into account the specific set of customer’s equipment. For GPU allocation modules (cells) are equipped with motherboards with power supplies. In case of ASIC accommodation, modules (cells) can be equipped with power supply units at the request of the customer.
What does control system include?
The BiXBiT mobile miner is equipped with all necessary electrotechnical infrastructure to supply power for accommodated equipment. Entire module arrangement is made taking into account the specific set of customer’s equipment. For GPU allocation modules (cells) are equipped with motherboards with power supplies. In case of ASIC accommodation, modules (cells) can be equipped with power supply units at the request of the customer. The control system is able to inventorize every device inside the miner. It runs any types of operating systems with pre-installed drivers and programs for mining. BiXBiT Miner infrastructure was created to work without system administrator participation and minimized the human factor or other possible errors while operating. The mobile miner is equipped with cable system and active network equipment to provide Internet access and remote control over the entire equipment. Active 2+ level network equipment allows you to segment the local network. Redundancy of communication channels is possible. The BiXBiT mobile module bundle includes 2 servers (main and backup) for running the software, for mining itself and for module's life support system management. Access (including remote) to all functions is implemented through a web portal. The BiXBiT mobile miner is equipped with sensors and microcontrollers that allow monitoring and control of a large number of parameters: power consumption, temperature, liquid levels, pump operating mode, etc.
How does the diskless boot system work?
The diskless boot system is managing operating systems and rigs software while GPU-mining. Rig is a small construction with a power supply unit and motherboard, where GPUs are inserted. Diskless boot system is presented by configured images located in the data storage system (for which one capacious hard disk is enough). Any of the images can be downloaded at any time to an unlimited number of working machines (rigs), which will take only 1 minute to begin or continue their work with new settings. The diskless boot system is a remote loader for operating systems on computing systems. Once installed and fully configured operating system with all the necessary drivers, applications for mining and attached users purses is compiled into an image that is stored in the data storage system (SDE). This operating system may be Windows, Linux or any of their derivatives (such as ethOS, Hive and others). The diskless boot system loads images not from the computer hard drive, but from the OS image in the storage system over the network. The BiXBiT solution allows to quickly conduct both primary connection to the network and further change of tasks.
ЧWhat does the life support system include?
The BiXBiT mobile miner is equipped with biometric electronic locks, video surveillance (2 cameras inside the container, 1 panoramic 360 ° outside), doors and technological hatches sensors.Also they are equipped with gas fire extinguishing system, smoke detectors and infrared cameras. At the request of the customer, the miner can be equipped with innovative hybrid fire extinguishing system.
How to switch between tasks?
Any of the images can be downloaded at any time to an unlimited number of working machines (rigs), which will take only 1 minute to begin or continue their work with new settings.
What equipment can be accommodated in a container?
Any kinds of mining equipment (ASIC, GPU) . You can even use pre-owed devices by carrying out preliminary cleaning.
Where can the container be allocated?
Where can the container be allocated?
Can I use your infrastructure with my old equipment?
Yes. Before immersing, the equipment must be cleaned and you should dismantle coolers
Is BiXBiT Miner difficult to maintain?
The modular design, unification of components, lack of consumables, automatic life support system with remote control, full documentation - all this reduces expenditures on qualified personnel needed for miner maintenance. One operator in 8/5 mode (8 hours, 5 days a week) can serve 2-4 mobile miners. Also, operators are not exposed to noise, as in the case of air cooling.
What is the difference between an immersion cooling system and air cooling?
Immersion cooling system does not require a replacement of consumables, and all components’ lifespan (including a cooling liquid) is usually over 3 years. Also BiXBiT complex is provided with a set of spare parts. For example, an air cooling system requires a regular replacement of filters and fans. Devices are placed into a sealed cell with immersive fluid, which eliminates dust and insets accumulation and prevents overheating equipment premature wear. Before immersing, a cooling system is removed from the equipment, which eliminates the main source of noise. For example, one GPU type Nvidia GTX 1070 generates 39 dB of noise, and one ASIC type Bitmain AntMiner L3 + generates 75 dB. The immersive liquid’s heat capacity is 25 times higher than heat capacity of air. Immersion cooling system provides an uniform heat removal from all parts of devises. Thus, the main causes of the computing devices failure are eliminated: temperature drops due to the supply of unevenly heated and cooled air, vibration, overheating.
