PROCOOL AVP-MFC-1U multi zone fan controller

Control individual temperature settings for each fan or control Globaly with one.

Configure a custom cooling system or add to an existing rack mount or cabinet fan system for temperature controlled operation.

Set the Global temp setting to control all 4 fans together or set individual temp profiles for each fan.

The fan controller will monitor the temperatures and start and stop the fans when the user preset temps are reached.
When the ON temp is reached the fans will start. Once the temp 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.)

Connect individual fans or rack mount fans or combinations to gain temperature control. Rack mount fans will require a plug adaptor.
Y splitters can be used to add additional fans. The number of aditional fans would be limited to the power rating of the power supply.
The included power supply is rated at 2A. This will support up to 8 of our SX or SXT series fans or 4 of our high TV series fans. For Ultra high airflow T series fans a 6A power supply is required.

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-MFC-1U supports up to 2 amps
The advanced system AVP-MFC-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.

  • 1U Rack Mount Fan Controller
  • Power supply
  • Control 4 fans independently with 4 temp profiles
  • Large Blue LED display (Switchable- on or off)
  • Switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius

Fan Controller:

User sets the controller's on and off temps to start and stop the system. Set a Global temp that will control all 4 fans together and/or set individual temps for each fan.
Each of the 4 fan power connectors are numbered 1 thru 4 corresponding to the front panel LED indicators. When the LED's are on that fan will be on. When the LED's are off those fans will be off.
Global setting: Front panel LED's for fans 1-4 are all on.
Individual setting: Front panel LED on for the selected or operating fans.

Typical start temp is about 80-85F. Off temp at or slightly above room temp. These settings can be adjusted for optimal performance. The controller has a temp sensor that should be located on or near the heat source, or can be located at the top of the cabinet for an ambient reading. This temp is displayed on the controller during operation for easy monitoring. Or, the display can be shut off during operation. (See Operating instructions)

Programming Temperature profiles:

Set the Global range higher than individual fan settings. If the highest individual temp is for example 90F set the Global temp to 92F or higher. If the Global temp is set to start at 85F then any fans set to start at 90F they will start when the Global start point of 85F is reached. Likewise if using the Global setting, make sure all individual settings are set outside of the Global range. The same rule applies for the OFF settings.

Care and Maintenance

To maintain optimal performance, keep the fans clean. Canned air works well. If the fans are used outdoors or in a dusty environment is recommended to clean the fan blades as needed to keep clean.

The Controller works great! I have 2 model SX480 fans panels connected. One blowing in and one blows out of my rack. The controller runs them both simultaneously. Turns on and off only when needed. Great system Procool!
