good morning everyone

i am working on a application note AN66627-intelligent fan controller on psoc3.

But this note only describe how to use fan controller component in different configration. this note does not use temperature meaure from any IC or atmosphere to control a dc fan.

i want to know about  that  how we can measure temperature using sensors & based upon temperature measured how we can  control a DC fan using fan controller component?

 

please help me on this topic

 

thanks

 Please check Cy8CKIT025 - PSoC Precision analog temperature sensor EBK example project 3. It controls fan speed based on RTD and diode temperatures. It also uses Cy8CKIT-036 Thermal management EBK

 thank you sir for your help.

i am working on a CY8CKIT-001 KIT

but i can't buy these costly kits. if i want to interface a sensor to  PSOC3 (not using any kit ,a separate sensor to CY8CKIT-001)  to get temperature from atmoshphere and according to that how we can control a dc fan using fan controller component?

i want to know about that.

what components are required for this work?

is ( a sensor, CY8CKIT-001, and 2 dc fan) these component are sufficient?

and how to arrenge them , means how to interface a sensor to kit-001 to get temperature and how  we can combine this reading to application note AN66627. ( at diagram level or at coding level or flow diagram in psoc creator etc).

thank you again

please help me out from this topic.

You have different choices for the temperature sensor:

PT100

Thermistor

Diode

Digital Sensors

and probably some more.

Help you can retrieve yourself by entering the text "temperature sensing" into the "Keyword Search" field and start a search. There are code examples, documents as much as you like.

 

For the fan controller I would suggest to use the same procedure and have a look into the datasheet which lists all the specs, APIs and configuration.

These should help -

And the industry has a myriad of SPI and I2C sensors, just use a sample

project in Creator to add to your project. So place an I2C component, right

click, then pick sample project, you can open as a new project or add to your

existing project.

 

Also there are Thermistor and Thermocouple components in Creator 2.2

 Hi mam,

 

Without purchasing the kit, you can download the material in the kit CD in the link below.

The user guide and projects there should help you get started. Then you can interface sensors without the kit as well
