Peek fan replacement

Postby Vic » Sat Nov 14, 2015 3:41 pm

The Peek fan on my Orion appears to be sick. I would like to get a replacement 25 mm fan. What is a good quality (and quiet) fan that has been used. Doing a search of the forum I found this: Top Motor DF122510BL-3G
But it appears to use 3 wires not 2 like the Orion. I want to simply swap it out without having to modify what I have.
Thanks

The third wire, (white), is for temperature reading, so all you would need to use is the black and red wires.

Just FYI, the third wire on fans is for RPM, not temperature. :)

I guess they're yellow for temperature? Since its for reading rpms, I'm surprised someone hasn't tried using the signal for a failsafe of some kind.

A lot of computer motherboards do use the RPM wire from the fan as a failsafe. I am not sure if any of the 3D firmware does it but I doubt it because every
fan I have seen throughout the various printers are all 2 wire.
