Temperature controlled fan regulator

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

This fan regulator circuit will automatically control the speed of your fan according to the temperature. Two thermistors (R1 and R2) are used to sense the temperature. The circuit works almost like the published here previously. Here the potentiometer is replaced by the thermistors. When the temperature is increasing the resistance of NTC thermis

tor ( R1) decreases and at the same time the resistance of PTC thermistor (R2) increases. At the same time, rate of change of the resistance will be different for R1 and R2. This action is similar to a potentiometer used in a conventional Triac based fan regulator. When the resistance is varied the firing angle of the triac changes and so do the speed of the fan.
