Fan Speed Control & Alarm Products for Telecom Cooling Applications

For over 3 decades, Control Resources has specialized in designing fan speed controllers for the telecommunications industry; customer list.

SmartFan fan speed control products regulate fan speed based on temperature (thermistor), control signal (PWM or DC) or I2C communication link. Temperature alarms and fan failure alarms are available on many fan speed control models. Complete custom fan speed control design and manufacturing services as well as custom fan tray assembly are available to provide you with the optimum solution for your telecom cooling application.
