SMSCom 16-Amp Hybrid Twin Fan Speed Temp Controller
SMSCom Hybrid Fan Speed Controllers are the simplest, quietest and most efficient way to regulate the output of in-line duct fans –just plug them into the controller, set the dials and let the on-board computer system do the rest. Hybrids completely remove many of the issues associated with other fan speed controllers, eliminating buzzing and humming noises by combining heavyweight transformers with clever digital technology.
Your plants are happiest when they are exposed to a consistent climate. Tropical plants thrive at around 28 degrees centigrade during the light period and 15 degrees while dark. As outside temperatures fluctuate, sometimes it is necessary to vary the amount of air extracted from the grow area via your duct fan to maintain the temperature indoors.
The SMSCom Hybrid Controller regulates the amount of air extracted from the grow area by increasing or decreasing the output of in-line duct fans. It requires no wiring or electrical skill to install; intake and outlet duct fans can be plugged directly into the corresponding UK standard 3-pin sockets located on the unit. The temperature probe is then placed near the canopy of your plants, using the 5m cable. Highly accurate data gathered from the probe is processed by the on-board computer and used in the duct fan regulation process.
You’ll need to set the temperature by turning dial 1 to match the desired temps of the room in centigrade. Once this is done, duct fans will run at the minimum speed (which is set using dial 2) until temperatures approach the optimum level. When temperatures are above the level set on dial 1, the SMSCom Hybrid controller will make full use of the extra capacity of the duct fan to ensure that the climate always stays constant. The on-board computer will even manage the intake and outlet fans so that negative pressure is maintained at all times.
The SMSCom Hybrid Controller utilizes a heavyweight relay to regulate the power supply, and you’ll notice a small clicking sound as the unit moves between each of its 5 speeds. This high quality relay ensures that the unit maintains its reliability at all times.
Hybrid Controllers work differently to budget controllers. Cheaper 100% digitally controlled units work by pulsing electricity, effectively switching power ON and OFF constantly, but at different rates, to vary the duct fan output levels. It is this pulsing effect which creates unwanted noise. The controller in the SMSCom Hybrid properly reduces and increases the amps/watts delivered to in-line duct fans. This way, the duct fan is always ON, and power is delivered smoothly, reducing humming and buzzing sounds to zero
