About Antminer L3+ with updated software update to L3++BM1485, the first Litecoin Application Specific Integrated Circuit, is a useful chip for Litecoin miners. Each Litecoin miner comes with 288 such chips to deliver more hash rates and efficiency, Antminer L3++ (580Mh/s and 942W). Litecoin miners are also known as Scryptminers. Apart from Litecoin mining, the miner is suitable for any cryptocurrency based on Scrypt.
The Antminer L3++ comes with a dual-fan design in the rear and front sides with a compact alloy shell. It weighs 4.4kg and size dimensions of 188 x 130 x 352mm, which gives it a small shape and allows for easy stacking. On the front, there is the IP button, network cable socket, reset button, QC label, etc.
The Antminer L3++ has four hash boards with two PCI-E 6PIN interfaces and four cables connected to the controller. The data cables have a buckle design that ensures tight contact for stable data transfer. It comes with Bitmain's 10nm Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) chip, which increases efficiency and productivity.
The Antminer L3++ has a low power consumption rate. It is evident that Bitmain also has people looking to mine at home in mind. As seen in the power consumption of the Antminer L3, L3+, L3++, which consume the power of 800W,850W, and 942W, respectively. For users with free electricity, low power consumption is an added advantage as it reduces electricity costs and brings up profitability. Calculating the electricity cost at 0.1 per KWh, users can still see a reasonable profit at the end of the day.
Fan and Air Circulation:
The Antminer L3++ has a 12cm fan of 12V 2.3A at the front side for air intake. The miner also has another 12cm fan at the end for taking out the air and heat. These two fans do an excellent job maintaining a stable mining condition by cooling the device and preventing overheating. During normal mining operations, the fan speed is at 4300 rotations per minute, which is quite useful.
Every miner's algorithm is essential as it determines the top coin and scale of profitability for the device. For the Antminer L3++, it works with the Scrypt algorithm. Scrypt is an encryption method that requires lots of time for selection and uses significant memory volumes.
