See if you can locate ones with continuously variable speed built-in...
Could one arduino remotley control multiple sockets?
Thanks Mark. I am still at a stage of playing with different fans, so am not sure of the motor type, But I would not want them to be any less powerful than a standard 16" oscillating fan which power at approx 45-50w and generally a remote voltage of 220v (sometimes 240). I am hoping to power at least three fans, (obviously from the mains), how feasible is this?!
Any directions to code for use the arduino as a remote control?!
