Wiring and Power

Discussion in 'Grow Room Design/Setup' started by Smoke me Up, Nov 22, 2003.

  1. I need some ideas for the best way to rig up fans if I use PC fans should I just get a computer power supply to run them? best way to wire stuff with out it getting to messy or tangled with 2 fans pumps lights and all that stuff ina small area
  2. the best way to run a computer fan is to wire it up to a 9 or 12v DC adapter (like for a phone, cd player, etc. it looks like a box with the plug prongs stickin out one side and a cord out the other) and cut the plug end off (so you have a box with like a 4' long cord on it) and stip the wires back about 1/2".... then do the same to the fan and wire neg. to neg. and pos. to pos.

    and be sure not to go over the amperage rating on the adapter.... like if your fans use .13a, and you power suply is 400ma (.1a = 100ma) you can safely run 3 fans of it (.13 = 130ma, x 3 = 390ma, 400ma - 390ma = 10 for power surges) but i would only recomend running 2 on it;)
