Multi channel fan controller Tags: Fan Fan Controller Components Last response: January 7, 2009 11:28 PM in Components Share ticallion January 7, 2009 9:41:02 PM How can I make my fan controller control more than one fan on a channel? can I just be cheap and split the 3 pins into another fan? Could I still achieve maximum volts on each fan or would the max volt be split between the 2 fans? can i buy splitters? More about : multi channel fan controller Silverion77 January 7, 2009 9:50:21 PM u can splice them together... The volts will be the same, the fans will just draw more amps and watts but not volts. Like all ur Sata Drives are all on 1 12v line, but the voltage doesnt change. Just the Watts and amps. So check to see how many watts per channel u can do (watts/12 (volts)= max amps for each channel) grieve January 7, 2009 9:53:24 PM depending on the fans and the controller you might get off lucky and be able to use a splitter... like this: http://secure.llamma.com/catalog/images/fansplit%20006.... But sometimes you have to splice the cords Related resources Fan controller - Forum Best Fan Controller - Forum Looking for 8 fan channel controller ! - Forum 2 fans on 1 fan controller channel - Forum NZXT Sentry-2 fan controller - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Voltage is shared evenly when parallel loads are connected. Join the extra fan's wires to the same cables that the original controlled fan was on. ticallion January 7, 2009 10:14:57 PM Alright cool, thanks alot for all the answers, I'll get some of those splitters. Silverion77, the max amp per channel is 1amp, and the fans are 12v,so I should be fine with 4 fans, right? Thanks alot for the help everyone. ticallion January 7, 2009 11:28:05 PM The fans say 0.24A (Max.) and 2.88W. So I should get away with 4 per 1A channel right? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
