Just wanted to get some advice/opinions on something.
I recently fitted a fan controller, 4 knobs to control 4 fans.
I wanted to add on/off switches to this so that I could kill fans altogether.
I went to Maplins today and bought 4 x illuminated switches. I thought i'd do a 'dry run' before fiting and had a go. The power from the fan controller was to light up the switch as well as power the fan. The light came on but the fan didn't spin and I could smell burning components!!!
I opened up the fan controller to find the circuitry burnt out on the fan controlers that I had tested on.
Now after looking on Maplins website () I see this:
Rating 1.5A 250Vac
LED 2.2Vdc 25mA
So is this why the fan controller konked out, because the switches are the wrong rating for PC usage? If so, what do i need to get?
