Aerocool announces two new single-bay fan controller: CoolTouch-E and CoolTouch-R. Both fan controllers are utilizing a touch-panel, allowing users to directly interact with the display to make adjustments and changes more naturally. Up to four case fans can be connected to the back side of the CoolTouch fan controller, while all important information are presented on the display in the front.
Aerocool brings the trend of touch-screens to the PC for an affordable price. All interactions with the new CoolTouch fan controller are made by simply pressing on the designated area on the touch-screen. To match the individual environment and taste, users can change the background-color of the LCD touch-panel anytime by pressing the "color" button. Both CoolTouch-E and CoolTouch-R offer the choice between the background-colors red, green, yellow, blue, light blue, purple and white.
The CoolTouch-E is equipped with a big 100 x 25 mm display, which covers most of the fan controller's front panel. Each of the four case fan channels can be controlled individually by choosing the preferred channel and then adjusting the fan speed in steps between 0, 50, 75 and 100 percent. Each channel supports fans with a consumption of up to 20 watts.
The CoolTouch-E indicates weather a fan is spinning or not and allows users to stop fans by pressing the power button. All common types of fan connectors are supported, including the standard 3-pin and 4-Pin PWM as well as 4-pin Molex connectors.
Aerocool CoolTouch-R combines great usability with additional functions and connectivity in a compact single-bay design! It utilizes a slightly smaller 85 x 25 mm LCD display with touch-support and offers additional functions! Besides the four case fan channels, one temperature sensor has been integrated, allowing users to monitor the temperature of the CPU Cooler, HDD, Chipset, VGA card or the temperature inside the chassis. The sensor can be placed anywhere inside the PC chassis using the supplied adhesive stickers.
Temperatures can be displayed both in Celsius and Fahrenheit. Great connectivity is assured thanks to the built-in card-reader and the USB 3.0 port, located on the right side of the panel. Most common storage media types such as SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC/RS MMC and miniSD are supported by the card reader.
To match most on-market PC chassis, CoolTouch-E and CoolTouch-R are available as a black and white edition. Both are available as of today at suggested retail prices: CoolTouch-E = 24,50 EUR and CoolTouch-R = 32,50 EUR (excl. Taxes).
