Ok. I got the diode and resistors smile.gif

On my zener diode is written ZPE5V1 is this correct ?




Jobs done biggrin.gif


Which connection on the A6 should I plug it in to ?

First, if you want to test your handiwork, before powering up your pump, apply 12V to the circuit you just added . . . . .

Gnd on the first pin, . . . plus + on the second pin, (next to the tach wire).

Now measure with a multimeter, the PWM pin should be +5V relative to the gnd pin, #1.

Once you see that all is well, you're ready to proceed.



Decide which channel of your A6 you want to control your pump from, and be sure that it's set to PWM in the Fans / Advanced tab.

If you're already familiar with Aquasuite enough to do that, and then set up a manual "preset value" controller for it, then plug it into that channel.

Looking at the back of the A6, number 1 is on the left.


For the D5, in the Fans tab, set min to 20% and max to 85% .

Check the "hold min power" box.

Then when you move the slider in the controller, it'll run at min rpm up to about 5 to10%, and then increase proportionally to max when you have the slider at 100%.

The slider's 0 to 100% range, controls within the span you previously set in fans tab, 20 to 85%

Min rpm is a little over 800, and max is around 4400.

Damn.. do I need to test it ?? smile.gif haven't got a multimeter

What is worst case scenario ? can it fry the A6 ?

Dude, buy a Multimeter. How do you have a set of Helping Hands but no Multimeter? Run to Home Depot or whatevers near you. 

 

Sorry, not trying to sound condescending. Multimeter's are pretty handy to have around for modding though.

Cuz im newb to these kind of mods..redface.gif Ill steal one from class tomorrow tongue.gif

Just wanted to fire up my pump and see the result of my mod.. Would it be foolish to try it out before testing?
post #87 of 10750

I'd say maybe try it out on a fan and maybe an old fan controller if you have one. That's if you can't wait til tomorrow or buy a multimeter first

 

If you apply 12v to the circuit, then wire the pwm, gnd, & tach, to a 3Pin connector, the fan should run at 5v speeds instead of full speed

I did the mod directly on the PWM cable of the pump.. didn't have any spare parts to make the mod for an extension cable

EDIT:

I just bought the helping hands the other day and Home Depot is on the other side of the world from me biggrin.gif

I dunno, when it comes to modding electronics i'm like a little baby monkey learning how to peel a banana compared to Darlene. 

Since it's her mod, i'm sure she understands the risks better. Usually if there's a chance of swapping gnd & +v though, you're risking all the hardware that's wired to it (including the psu)

 

The whole reason i went with a multi-rail psu this time around is because i blew my last psu when i accidentally swapped gnd & +v on a wire harness. Blew a fan like that too
