What fans can I use a fan speed controller with?
Speed controllers will work with brushless motors, such as the ones commonly used with inline centrifugal fans. Do not use speed controllers with cage blowers, booster fans, or oscillating fans.
What fan speed controller should I use?
We recommend using our C.A.P. (CAVSC-DNE) for precise temperature control and superior performance. This Variable Fan Speed Controller is designed to gradually increase or decrease the speed of centrifugal fans depending on the day or night temperature set-points. Do not use this controller with cage blowers, booster fans or oscillating fans. Another option is the Active Air fan speed controller (ACSC). This controller allows the user to control the speed of the fan by the turn of a dial. Meant for use with brushless motors, and all Hydrofarm inline fans. This controller is made in the USA. Do not use speed controllers with cage blowers, booster fans, or oscillating fans.
