AV Rack cooling system

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am building a custom AV rack/cabinet. I'm looking at using the Pyle PFN41 because it has thermostat control and plugs directly into a outlet. So here's my question. I need two or three units. Can I use one or two Pyle PFN31 and wire it into the PFN41 so they all come on at the same time?

That's a lot of fans... What are you putting in that rack that makes you think you need that many? Typically for cabinets you need a fan to pull hot air out of the rack, not so much to push air in.

Suggest you read Middle Atlantic's White Paper on the subject before going much further...

Thanks for the reply. I came to my conclusions on what I'd need by reading some DIY articles. I really have no knowledge in this area. Complete noob. Thanks for the link. I'll give it a read tonight.

Thanks for the help that you've given me. I read the paper and I'm glad that I did. I had no idea what I was doing. This was a huge help! Again thank you so much. Have a great weekend
