    Step-by-step Guide for Setting up the Elphapex DG-1

    1. Preparing the ASIC

    • Any ASIC miner requires a relatively high power supply, over 3000W. Thus, a regular home power setup won’t work. You need a dedicated power infrastructure for your ASIC miner.

    • Collaborating with a certified electrician and getting a dedicated power setup to run your ASICs is highly recommended. You will need a 240V 30A circuit PDU and L6-30 receptacle to power your ASIC miner.

    Your ASIC miner needs a 240V 30A circuit and L6-30 receptacle. - 7

    • Since the ASIC miners release a large amount of heat, having this entire setup in an aerated place with a lot of ventilation is highly advisable. Additionally, ensure you have a dedicated wired internet connection in the mining area, as ASICs don’t have Wi-Fi support. Now, place the miner on a flat surface in the ventilated area.
    • The Elphapex DG-1 requires two sets of C-13 to C-14 power cables to power the miner. Ensure you get 14-gauge thick cables, which withstand the heat your ASIC generates.

    • Ensure all plugs are tight and there are no loose connections. Now, you are all set to start the Elphapex DG-1.

    2. Configuring the ASIC

    • Once the power supply is on, the ethernet light should come on.

    When power's on, Ethernet light should activate. - 11

    • The next step is to find the IP address of your Elphapex DG-1. You will need a laptop or desktop with the same internet connection.
    • Go to the website Advanced IP Scanner. It is a free program software that gets you ASIC’s IP address.
