Unpacking: remove the EPE foam on the top, we can see that T15 changes the ESD package, which is different from that of S9 series.

Pool and Miner Settings

The installation and setting-up of Antminer T15 is similar to that of other Bitmain models, so there’s no need to describe in detail here. Please refer to our guidance “ANTMINER GENERAL MINING GUIDE” at: https://www.eastshore.xyz/tutorial-general-mining-guide-troubleshoot-for-antminer-models/

After setting-up, the miner enters high-performance mode, the real-time status is shown on the “Miner Status” page.

Energy-Saving Mode Test

Enter “Miner Configuration” page, select Low Power Mode, save after setting, restart the machine, wait for the miner to go online:

The miner structure design is obviously different from that of the early generations. Remove the cover at the air outlet, the internal structure is shown as follows:

Remove the hashboard, the air tunnel is shown as follows:

The distance between air intake and outlet on T15 miner is 160mm. The distance between air intake and outlet of Antminer S9 is 255mm with more heat sinks and higher air resistance.

Notes: If the miner racks of mining farm are installed in accordance with the early S9 series. Being upgraded to Antminer T15, the distribution of the racks needs to be adjusted.

Chip:

  • Hash chip: BM1391AE.
  • Single hashboard: 60PCS.
  • Single miner: 60*3 (hashboards) = 180PCS.

Local details: models of some key devices: MP2019, PIC33EP16
