Rhino – Silent Thermostatic Fan Controller
- Rhino Silent Fan Speed Controllers are developed and manufactured in the UK
- Will eliminate buzzing and humming to ensure silent climate control
- Silently controls both intake and exhaust fans, allowing negative pressure to be maintained
- Housed in a durable steel casing with a galvanised back panel
- Not suitable for multi-speed or thermostatically controlled fans
The Rhino Silent Thermostatic Fan Controller measures the temperature of your room, then automatically adjust the fan speeds according to the setting you have chosen, if its too hot and the fan speed will increase, low temperature and it’ll slow down.
The sensor is attached to a 5-meter cable and will scan every 20 seconds. It will then adjust the speed of the fan until the temperature which you have set using a dial on the front of the unit, is reached.
Designed and manufactured in the UK, the Rhino Silent Thermostatic Fan Controller is made from a heavy duty steel casing, which can also be fixed to any wall using the galvanised plate.
Manually adjustable through five different voltage levels corresponding to fan speeds, the advantage of the voltage stepper controller over variable resistors is the lack of hum created by the resistance.
As well as being unwanted noise, this hum is also a sign that the capacitors in the fan are being put under strain and their lifespan is being reduced. This is especially true when a variable resistor is used with the larger inline fans.
If you do not know how to install this fan then please seek professional help.
Never place fingers in any moving parts such as blades.

Your grow room needs fans all year round, no matter what the temperatures are like outside – they are always beneficial. They help with a variety of different problems that might otherwise arise and don’t just work to cool a room down. Ways they can help include:
- To Circulate the Air In Your Grow Room
- To Remove Excess Heat & Hot Spots
- To Control Humidity
- To Prevent Pests and Diseases
- To Control CO2
- To Circulate the Air In Your Grow Room
Outside, plants are going to encounter wind at some point. However, the wind never blows in the same direction for very long, and so you want to avoid having a static fan blowing. Oscillating fans and others that have movement are ideal for creating a more natural air circulation. You can place two fans in opposite corners to create a circulating vacuum of air.
To Remove Excess Heat & Hot Spots
Your grow room can easily get too warm depending on the conditions outside and within the area, you are growing. Grow lights emit heat, and whilst it may not feel like much to you, a slight increase in temperature can really affect your plants.
Some grow lights emit more heat than others but even with lights known to run cooler such as air-cooled lighting and LEDs, it is still wise to have fans blowing. They will help to keep the general temperatures lower and help with air exchange.
To Control Humidity
Another factor that can create problems in a grow room is humidity. Plants release water vapour throughout the day and this increases the humidity. If this level isn’t controlled, the growing conditions will decline.
A good ventilation system will help to wick away some of the water released during transpiration. This allows your plants to absorb more water and pull up nutrients through their root systems, which in effect helps with boosting growth.
To Prevent Pests and Diseases
Good air circulation will help to prevent pests and diseases taking hold. Stagnant and humid conditions are preferred of mould, powdery mildew, spider mites and fungus gnats. And we don’t want any of those to get in!
A steady breeze thanks to a few fans also makes it harder for the pests to establish themselves on the plants.
To Control CO2
Plants need outside air for one very basic reason: CO2. This is absorbed naturally throughout the day as part of a plant’s nutrient cycle. With a sealed grow tent set-up, the level of CO2 will gradually decrease, and this will limit growth.
Ventilation brings in the fresh air and fresh CO2 from outside whilst removing the old air from your grow room.
