Livingston Portmaster 3

laforge bought two Livingston Portmaster 3 PM3A-1E, which are RAS (Remote Access Server) that
  • terminates one 1E line (30 B-channels)
  • provides ISDN dial-up on those channels
  • provides DSP based modems in case analog modem calls should be handled.

More details to follow.

The original fan is aFonsan DFB0812M (DC 12V 0.1A) fan by DELTA ELECTRONICS INC. The specs seem to state 2600 RPM / 24.8 dB(A) / 29 cfm.

I found it too noisy and replaced it with a Noctua NF-A8 FLX with L.N.A (reduced to 1650 rpm / 12.9 dB(A) / 24 cfm)

Fun fact: The PM3 actually seems to have a 5V -> 12V DC/DC upconverter just for the fan - instead of simply using a 5V fan...
