Environmental specifications

The environmental specifications are listed for each player model in the following table.

HMP400 HMP350, HMP300, DiVA HMP200 HMP130, HMP100
Internal temperature sensor Yes Yes Yes No
Storage temperature -4ºF to 122ºF / -20ºC to 50ºC -13ºF to 113ºF / -25ºC to 45ºC
Operating ambient temperature 32ºF - 104ºF / 0ºC - 40ºC
Relative humidity 10-90% non-condensing
Maximum operating altitude 10,000 ft (ca. 3,048 m)
Note Notes:
  • The players should not be installed & operated in direct sunlight, nor stacked one on top of the other.
  • Different environmental factors can affect the drift induced by the internal clock of the player.
  • Make sure to correctly power off the HMP / power off DiVA.

Internal temperature

The SpinetiX players, from the HMP200 model onwards, are featuring a sensor that monitors the device internal board temperature. This temperature is measured inside the player, and it is not the external case temperature, nor the ambient one. The internal temperature is influenced by the surrounding environment temperature, the heat dissipation grade, but also by the content being rendered - the higher the complexity, the more CPU usage, and thus more heat being generated.

The internal temperature is displayed within Control Center under:

The internal board temperature can also be retrieved through the HMP Status API and the get_info RPC command.

Shutdown temperature

An internal temperature sensor monitors the device's internal board temperature. When that temperature reaches the selected shutdown temperature level - normal or maximum - the device shuts down in order to cool down; when the internal temperature has lowered below the threshold value, the device automatically restarts.

By default, the shutdown temperature is set to normal (55ºC / 131ºF); you can increase this to maximum (70ºC / 158ºF) from Control Center:
