XL Enclosure fan

Do you know which connector and wires need to be used to make the "enclosure fan" working ? I'd like to ventilate my existing enclosure based on internal XL temperature measurements. Cannot figure it out in the current user/build guide, is it even possible without any additional (e.g. sandwich) board ?

RE: XL Enclosure fan

The connector is a 4 circuit Molex Clickmate, available in prepared cable assemblies. This is the 600mm version. The mating receptacle is only available as a board-mounted device, so the XL Enclosure uses two back-to-back receptacles on the sandwich board to extend the blower cable to the Fan1 port. The blower and filter used in the Advanced Filtration System look to be the same as the ones in theXL enclosure.

Does it mean the fan signal/power is provided by the electronics of sandwitch board and is not available directly on the existing boards/connectors? 

Do I need to buy sandwich board to make the fan working?

RE: XL Enclosure fan

Sorry for my confusing post 😔 

The existing sandwich board on your XL provides the signals to power and control the fan. The 'XL Enclosure Splitter' board that comes with the XL enclosure provides a convenient place to disconnect the fan when removing the top part of the enclosure, but doesn't alter the signals.

Thank you for the explanation. Is there a link for a wiring diagram? I mean the darf connector pins description resp. connection of fan wires (+, -, signal).

Not that I know of. Likely signals would be Ground, 24V, PWM, Tach. but who knows which signal to which pin?

Hope someone with the already built enclosure can describe the wiring later ...
