Well, we were talking about the air that is exhausted into the environment from the mask. Or at least I was.

ahhh I was talking about if the machine has a cooling element in it to cool the air. You can set a temperature down to 60 degrees on the airsense and aircurve does it just not turn a heater on or does it have active cooling.

If my S9 has a cooling element on it, based on the temps that I just checked, it is not doing a very good job. I am quite sure that there is no cooling element in my S9.

RE: Hot
based on your measurements and considering that the machine is consuming 50-100watts of power I would suggest that there is a cooling element, but that's me and this thread has gone farther than it needs to

Peace
