Hard wiring a PC Fan into the UM3

Recommended Posts

Hiya all,

I wanted to find out how I can hard wire a fan for power with a variable resistor.

I am making a hood that is both part of an enclosure and extractor. I want to add a 77mm PC fan as part of the extractor element.

Can I had wire this to the power supply output or is there another way of powering the fan?

This is what I have made and I just need to power the fan and I can then put it on top of my printer.

many thanks

Rebekah Anderson
