PROCOOL AVP-1U multi fan controller
Configure a custom cooling system or add to an existing rack mount fan or cabinet fan system for temperature controlled operation.
The fan controller will monitor the rack temperature and start and stop the connected fans when the user preset temps are reached.
When the ON temp is reached the fans will start. Once the rack has cooled to the OFF temp setting the fans will shut off.
The easy to read Blue LED display shows the temperature in C or F for convenient monitoring. The display can be turned off if desired without affecting operation of the system. Additionally the fan controller can be set to Always On Mode which bypasses the temperature control function if needed.
(Helpful if the temp probe were to get damaged.)
Rack mount fans can be connected as well as several individual cabinet fans or combinations of both.
The number of fans is limited to the combined power consumption of the connected fans.
The standard system AVP-1U supports up to 2 amps
The advanced system AVP-1U+ supports up to 6 amps.
The amp ratings for all Procool fans are shown in the specifications tab on each product page. Look for Power Consumption ratings shown in Amps. Add the Amp rating for each rack fan and cabinet fan to be connected to determine which system is needed. Typically the 2 amp system will control 2 to 3 rack mount fans or 10 cabinet fans.
All fans pull a little more power when starting. It's best to use only 1.7 amps with the 2A system and 5 amps for the 6 amp system. This will ensure no start failures and full operating speeds. Fortunately this allows for the 10 cabinet fans and several rack mount fans.
