How to be sure that Helios64 or it's power supply not cause fire?


Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

I would like to have question maybe unwise but it's hard to find information about it.

 

I would like to prevent somehow my Helios64 or it's power supply to minimize risk of fire. 

 

Do you have any propositions to minimize that risk?

 

Thank you for your help in advance

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

You cannot. Happens very rarely but sometimes electronics in general can end up in magic smoke or even worse.

 

Best you can do is to look ahead and think about what would happen IF. Are flammable objects close by? Does the device lie on a wooden table? Are other devices close by that radiate heat and cause the concerned devices to heat up additionally?

How is your local public power supply? Do voltage spikes occur often? If so think about installing devices in the building connection that prevents such spikes from hitting your stuff. Kind a lightning conductor but way more sensitive against voltage above rated.

Try to look for more general information about fire hazard prevention. Maybe ask your local firefighter station.
