Automates Cooling Products
Provides On/Off & Variable Fan Speed Control
The TC-ALTv2 provides automated on off and variable speed control based on temperature. It also features an alarm and three selectable modes with different on/off setpoints. The “On” setpoint for Mode 1 is 80°F/27°C, and is most appropriate for equipment room or closet applications. The setpoint for Mode 2 is 90°F/32°C, and is designed for cabinet, rack, and enclosure applications. Mode 3 is 100°F/38°C, and is also designed for cabinet, rack and enclosure applications but offers a higher setpoint for applications where the controller’s sensor must be in close proximity to components or a higher temperature is simply desired. This mode is also ideal for two stage cooling applications when two controllers are used with one controller set on Mode 2 and another set on Mode 3.
For each Mode, the fan/s will turn on at 50% speed and will increase in speed in a linear progression until full speed is reached at ~10°F above the “On” setpoint. As the system cools down the fan/s will slow down in a linear progression and ultimately turn off when the temperature drops ~3°F/2°C below the “On” setpoint. The alarm is set at a fixed 115°F/41°C.
Another advantage of the unit is that it can be mounted most anywhere since it utilizes a remote sensor. In even more extreme applications, the sensor can be extended to control remotely mounted fans in projector enclosures, ventilation applications, etc.
The unit features three selectable modes with different on/off set points. The setpoints are at 80°F/27°C, 90°F/32°C, and 100°F/38°C, and are identified by the number of beeps heard when depressing the mode button on the side of the unit. Mode 1: One Beep, Mode 2: Two Beeps, and Mode 3: Three Beeps.
- Mode 1 - On at 80F and off at 77F
- Mode 2 - On at 90F and off at 87F
- Mode 3 - On at 100F and off at 97F
*** These are all fixed set points and progressions and cannot be changed ***
Dimensions: 3" W x 1 3/8" D x 3/4" H (76 x 35 x 19mm)
Compatibility: All Cool Components Low Voltage Products
Construction: Black ABS Plastic
Important Note: This unit should only be used with regulated power supplies. If not using a regulated power supply and using an unregulated adjustable voltage power supply such as the PS-300 or PS-500, the power supply should then possibly require a setting of 9V, although this is not optimal. The issue is that often times unregulated power supplies will supply higher voltage when not under load or under a light load. Higher voltage will not damage the unit, it simply will not perform within the specifications.
Connection: 2-Pin FastWire Power System (Ensure proper polarity - Tip to +)
