Advanced Thermal Solutions has today announced the launch of the new FSC-200 Fan Speed Controller, providing precise management of fan speeds during thermal management studies of electronic devices. Featuring ATS stageSPEED software, the FSC-200 allows the use of a PC to incrementally control the speed of fan and fan trays from 0 to 100% of their maximum power.

The FSC-200 communicates with a PC via a USB connection and also draws power from it. The system supports fans and fan trays up to 30 amps. Featuring data accuracy of +/-1%, the FSC-200 controls fans and fan trays from 0 to 100% PWM with 0.5% resolution.

In many thermal management studies, the component temperatures must be obtained when they are in the airflow from varying fan speeds. This data provides an envelope of safe operation of the device. Applications for the FSC-200 Fan Speed Controller include thermal management studies in the telecom, automotive, instrumentation and fan manufacturing industries.

The FSC-200 Fan Speed Controller is priced at $950.00 (USD).
