Kerry Wong has designed and built a dual sensor fan controller: To make the design more useful, one channel is marked as optional (see components with * on the silkscreen) so that you can build either a single sensor fan controller or a dual sensor one. With two sensors, the control signal is or’d with both […]
Lukas Fassler from Soldernerd has written up documentation on his DIY fan controller project: I’m currently mainly working on my new anemometer design but once in a while I get distracted. For example when my Keysight E3645A lab power supply was making so much noise that I could hardly concentrate. That’s when the idea of this fan […]
Sandman333 built a free Fan Controller PCB. If you build a free PCB we’ll send you another one! Blog about it, post a picture on Flicker, whatever – we’ll send you a coupon code for the free PCB drawer.
Mountaindude has been spending some time lately working on 12V fan controllers and thought he’d share his experiences so far. “While trying out various computer and network gear, I quite often find the fans too loud. They are of course there for a good reason, but experience tells that the device usually works just fine […]
An app note on a multichannel fan controller: Intelligent Fan Controller Cost-Effectively Improves System Energy Efficiency and Reliability Provides energy savings by operating fans at the minimum required conditions Improves system reliability Lowers system cost by providing all the functions for controlling multiple fans with one IC Thanks rsdio!
Geoff designed this USB PC case fan controller. It is used to control the speed of your fans depending on the temperatures in your case. Software that was developed for this project allows you to customize the temperature profiles for your computer. The project is based on the PIC18F2550 that is connected to the computer […]
rsdio tipped us to an app note on power-supply sequencers and voltage trackers: here’s something for cloudform511’s Open Source Laptop, assuming it will need a fan The MAX34441, PMBus 5-Channel Power-Supply Manager and Intelligent Fan Controller Power supply/thermal manager provides unparalleled “black box” failure logging and energy efficient fan control Provides predictable operation of up […]
