    Default 1-10 port max power output

    Hey,

    I have some tiny brushless fans that I'd like to control with the 1-10v interface.

    The fans are 9v so technically I could control them straight with this output, but the fans are 0. 27A max and I don't know if these ports can drive that much power.

    What is the max power rating for these ports?

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    As the document quoted by Gandalf indicates, the 1-10v outputs should only be used to transmit a control signal and NEVER to supply a power device such as a motor. The output must not be loaded with more than 20mA.

    You can drive 12v motors with PropellerControl-2.1 PL-0265 (800mA max)

    Thanks both! This is perfect.

    It's a 12v output but I guess I can limit it adjusting the 0-10v output to a max of 7.5v.

    Thanks!
