Sunbeam Rheobus Qs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
When it says 20W... does that mean per channel or combined? I was hoping to hook up 2-3 fans behind each channel but would like to know if that would kill it (it would be fine if each channel were 20W, but would most likely kill it if each were only 5W)

Also, with a fan controller, does the voltage step down with each fan connected to a channel? (ie, fan #1 receives 8v, next one only receives 6v and so on) I notice this when using just a bare potentiometer because the fans are in series but is it different with a fan controller?

That means per channel...

Just add up the wattage and don't put more than 20w on a channel.

I'm running 2 of my channels with 2 120mm 141 cfm Delta fans each and it works great.

Not sure about them stepping the volts, but seem to push the same.

It's per channel, atleast that's what it says.

Oh awesome... thanks guys! As for the voltage stepdown, I guess I'll just have to test that out myself

Also, P=I*E, so a .30A fan uses up 3.6W right? meaning I could hook up 5 of these fans to 1 channel if I wanted? 1.67A output also equates to (5).30A fans...

I'll probably only run 3... but supposedly I should be able to run 5 .30A fans off 1 channel right?
