CAN FAN LCD EC FAN CONTROLLER | TEMPERATURE + SPEED CONTROLLER FOR CAN FAN EC FANS ONLY
This controller will only work with the Can-Fan EC range of fans.
The EC Fan Controller of Can-Fan, with its LCD screen, is an advanced climate controller that allows you set temperature and humidity, besides other interesting functions like hysteresis, negative pressure, maximum and minimum speed of CAN Fan EC extractors.
It has a speed setting for ventilated areas, controlling the airflow going in and out from the room. The controller also has the capacity of maintaining a constant temperature and humidity in the grow room, being possible to adjust options for daytime and nighttime independently (always maintaining a negative pressure to avoid odour scape from the room).
All functions to monitor parameters of growing area are measured within a probe (incorporated) that offers instant readings of those values, what allows a quick and efficient regulations of environmental conditions.
Instructions One of the advantages of EC Fan Controller is its quick installation, and easy use, that allows to control up to 10 Can Fan EC extractors, non being necessary to electrically protect connections. Every extractor can be connected in line with the following (and also with the controller) within a jack connector, thanks to the low voltage needed to regulate them, switch them ON or OFF. This controller includes some velcro stickers to attach the unit to any surface.
The controller includes an humidity and temperature probe, with a 4 meter cable to place it wherever you prefer (it is important to don’t place the probe close to a heat/cold source that could cause a false reading of the growing-area conditions.
To set the Fan Controller it is needed to connect extractors to the Socket 1, intractors to the socket 2, the humidity/temperature probe to Sensor socket. Once everything is connected we only need to assign the desired parameters (humidity, temperature and humidity hysteresis, minimum speed and maximum speed for fans, and also daytime-night-time function) and it is ready to use.

What is an EC Fan?
EC stands for electronically commutated and combines voltages of both AC and DC bringing the best of both technologies together to form EC.
AC motors are designed to operate at a certain point on their performance curve which coincides with their peak efficiency which is good in constant speed applications. The efficiency can drop considerably on either side of the optimum operating point. An AC motor generally consumes moe energy by simply having to produce a magnetic field by inducing a current into the rotor where an EC motor uses permanent magnets giving it an inherent efficiency advantage. They also have a flat efficiency curve which varies relatively little across the speed range.
The range is not limited to synchronous speeds or voltage fluctuations as with an AC motor which allows the EC motor to match the performance requirements of an application while maintaining a high operating efficiency.
So where current model AC Can Fans speed can be adjusted, it comes at a cost of efficiency. EC Can Fans speed can be reduced right down to 1% while maintaining its efficiency.
