UMO 1.5.7 hot end fan PWM Voltage, current ranges?

Recommended Posts

As the title says.  Hopefully someone has prior knowledge or easy access to this info.

 

I would like to explain my need to know.  Some time ago I rigged my hot end up with a print cooling manifold that's supplied by compressed air.  It's lighter and provides improved cooling capacity with an even 'spray'.  It's connected to my air compressor at about 60psi and supplied by a hose added to the bowden bundle. The weakness of the setup is that the only means of control is by manually adjusting a small thumb screw needle valve.  It can range from off to a lot of cooling

 

I want to buy an industrial PWM (proportional) flow control valve and connect it thru the existing print fan circuit.  Thus the need to start with an understanding of the target circuits capacities. I think I can find the right valve for $125 or less.  Depending on the PWM signal, a small converter device may be needed for a boost.

 

Anyone?  Thanks in advance..

 

P.S.  Being able to only select from a predefined set of thread tags seems very limiting.  Can threads be searched by their tag definitions?  Feasible or useful to have user defined tags?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
