Problem but Global was good

They're sold by Global, who stands behind their products. (The only reason for the three star rating. Global gets 5.)

Fan Speed control

Your review: I have used this speed control in numerous situations and have been pleased with it and the fact that you can run up to four fans with one controller

Pros: Variable speed control with reversing capability, able to control multiple fans with one controller

Cons: Has some noise in it and I have had to replace one that was less than 8 months old.

Problem but Global was good

Your review: We've been through four of these units, they burn out after a couple of months on 3 fans, not even the maximum four. But Global has been great about getting us replacements.

Pros: They're sold by Global, who stands behind their products. (The only reason for the three star rating. Global gets 5.)

Cons: They don't last, and an electrician is required each time they're replaced! Zero stars!

Fan Switch

Your review: The fan switch is nice. It works like it should but only lasts about 5 years and dies.

Pros: It's nice to be able to change the speed of the fans with a simple knob.

Cons: The forward and reverse switch is labeled backwards. For the fan to blow in a downward direction you have to switch it to reverse.

Controlling two fans

Your review: Working just fine. Cut off the reversing switch since, as noted by others, it sticks out too far and will be hit while fan is running.

It runs a little hot.

Your review: This unit controls 3 canarm 60 inch fans and after being on a short time it feels hot to the touch. Maybe thats the nature of the beast. I have had no problems in the month I have had it and would heartily recommend it to a friend.

Does the Job

Your review: I purchased this controller to control a group of 4 fans in our facility. The installation is straight forward. Really only two minor issues with it. First, the control goes from OFF to FULL then as you rotate the control it goes to its lowest setting. A little backward and odd but workable. The other is that due to the face plate you must place these controls in individual duplex boxes rather than putting in a multi gang box with other controls. Adds to clutter and expense when installing them.

reversing control works great

Your review: Item works exactly as advertized. I have 4 fans hooked up to one, 3 fans to one and 2 fans to one. All work perfect.

Fan Controller

Your review: Seems to be working just fine = variable speed, reversible, and even a "low" speed adjustment... I would recommend no higher than a medium setting on this deal as it gets covered up by the face plate = not an easy adjustment after installed. Simple instructions for easy installation. If yer fan don't have these options, or is mounted out of reach, this unit will take care of your needs.

useful - could be better

Your review: Kit is complete and directions included are clear. Controller works well. I thought it would be convenient to have the reversing switch and speed regulator in one unit. I use this with one fan the Canarm fan CP56F/R cons 1- reversing switch has a "light action" and is easy to switch accidentally (from froward to reverse mode) when turning the fan on and off or adjusting the speed. 2 - Fan is not silent with this controller. There is a audible hum, not bad, but audible. I had set up the fan with a large high quality variable voltage regulator for testing before the controller arrived and the fan was silent. Now with this controller it makes some noise. I would give 5 stars if the fan was silent

Perfect Controller

Your review: This controller is PERFECT!!! I love the internal adjustments to pre-set the high and low end of the variable speed. That way your variable speed is really YOUR VARIABLE SPEED, with total control forward and reverse. Dwight

How much wire is provided with the controller and fans? I am considering a 60 foot run. So I have three part question. 1) How much wire is provided with fan and controller order 2) If no wire is provided what type of wire will be needed to complete installation. 3) Does the install require a 110 line run to each fan? Or just to the control (assume this is the case).
