BENCHLAB Key Features

BENCHLAB ensures complete visibility over your system's power consumption by providing comprehensive power measurement for 24-pin ATX, 8-pin EPS, 6+2-pin PCIE, and 12+4-pin 12VHPR connectors. 

In addition, the BENCHLAB voltage measurement system features one ±18V differential and twelve 0-4V single-ended channels which enables you to keep a close eye on voltage fluctuations, guaranteeing stable and secure operation.

To keep track of the thermal operating conditions, BENCHLAB's advanced temperature measurement functionality includes an embedded ambient temperature and humidity sensor, as well as support for four external temperature sensors.

The conveniently integrated fan controller supports up to nine 4-pin PWM fans whose curves can be mapped to any of the temperature sensors via the BENCHLAB software. In case you don't want to use the software, you can also control the fans using a physical switch.

The BENCHLAB connects to your system via a USB Type-C connector. Once connected, you can use our software to monitor, log to CSV, and export to HWiNFO the system telemetry.

BENCHLAB also features several I/O connections, including a built-in USB hub with 2x USB Type-A for your keyboard, mouse, or other peripherals. Three 2-pin connects can be used for specialty functions such as power on and reset. Last but not least, an special port is reserved for future expansion capabilities.

The BENCHLAB seamlessly fits any full size BC1 Open Benchtable and squeezes neatly underneath your system. Thirty ARGB LED fitted on the backside of the PCB provides you with a stunning, customizable visual backdrop.
