Whether reducing the 12v would effect power to the inbuilt fan controller. This is a recipe for a dead fan. Is there anyway you might suggest to bypass this? I would like to use the tachometer to measure frequency of a shaft. Look inside the exhaust port of the fan. Other colors are possible, but less common. Workarounds for the fan manufactures can be a small circuit including a diode and capacitor able to keep supply voltage on the hall element controller. The controller will then malfunction, because it needs constant current to operate.
Wiring ceiling fan with light to two switches ceiling fans ideas. I do not know why anyone would do this! This is How to Wire a 3 Wire and 4 Wire Condenser Fan Motor into the Outdoor Unit. As the air again cools, the fan will slow. When i put a voltage of 5V on the voltage line and i read out the tachometer, i get perfect readings I am using labview to measure this. Connecting it to ground briefly won't cause any harm. Multi-Wire Configuration The 2 circuit multi-wire configuration requires that the black and red hots be attached to a two-pole circuit breaker that has a tie-bar so that these two circuits are not fed from the same buss in the panel.
Plus you get a sense of achievement, heh. Upon installation of the new, no 2 or 3 wire for this. Collin, from Grand Rapids, Michigan Thank you for answering my question.
