I have a variable speed kithen exhause fan. Sometime people uses the range and don't turn on the fan.
I want to have the fan turn-on automatically at various speeds depending on needs.
I was thinking having a temperature sensor control the speed of the fan. Higher temp - higher speed.
spec: 120v fan
assumption: fan speed is varied by cutting the frequency.
question: is there small device (like a head pressure control by slowing down the condensor fan) that will vary the freq base on temp?
I would like to have some flexiblity in defining the range. For example; at < 95 degree, disable fan
at 95 degree, run at 10 hz
at > 120 degree, run at 60 hz.
this should be fun.

WOW lots of time on your hands or what???
AC Tech makes some small afordable vfd's and you could control this with a Johnson A350P for speed from temps mentioned and A350 will enable start/stop.
Just a thought.
Just yell at the people not turning the fan on when they cook and tell them if they keep it up they'll pay the electric bill for the added a/c usage. It took a couple of weeks with the wife but she finally remembers to turn the fan on!
