V2.00 patch 0 firmware supports this function. However, this function requires new hardware revision due to current hardware limitations.

    Please make it optional. Switch usually gets really hot and the fan is not even active. I would like to keep the fan always active.

    yeah I noticed mine getting pretty hot too. I would prefer to have it on as well.

  • I assume this is a bit too late, but this feature would not only allow to control the fan, but it would also allow to test the fan.

    I had an xgs1250 with a 'broken fan' (it was never working) and I cannot test this on my new xgs1250 because there is no way to activate it.

    Hi @robertogl and all,

    Thank you for your inquiry about the XGS1250's fan functionality. I'd like to confirm that the fan is indeed temperature-controlled and activates only when reaching a predetermined temperature. We have thoroughly reviewed the possibility of enabling fan control through a firmware upgrade but, due to hardware limitations, found it unfeasible. Understanding the importance of this feature, we are excited to announce that we are working on releasing a new hardware revision that will include fan control capabilities.

  • Thanks for the update!

    A bit unfortunate that an hardware change is needed, as existing customer will not be able to use this…
