DIY Dual Fan Controller Project

DIY Dual Fan Controller Project

Here’s a nice little circuit diagram for all those hardcore DIYers if you are trying to build a dual fan controller using an ATtiny45 although I’d never use this thing, I’d rather use a CUBLOC.

Over the course of a weekend, I cobbled together some leftover robot parts to create a simple dual-fan controller. The board turns on the first fan when the temperature reaches a user-adjustable dial setting, and it turns on a second fan if the temperature exceeds an additional 5 degrees Fahrenheit. With this method, only a single fan is used if the temperature can be kept under control with only one fan, but both fans will kick on if necessary.

    How on earth do you find the time to do all these things Max? I wish that I could have half the energy and time that you seem to be flush with. What is the secret?

    Great idea though.

    It’s Latin for me……….

    It’s very complicated for only a fan controller, you can do the same for cheap by using only a thermistor, some resistors and a transistor 😉
