Actually the exhaust is very important in the controller 1 because it helps control the rh and temps. Everything could fit in a single controller with one type c splitter for the fans. Or take them off the controller and run them manually. It cleans up the tent a bit too because you have less wiring to hide and run.
There is no controlling the rh outside of my tent in the zone im in, in winter. Humidifier is directly in the tent and controlled by my exhaust fan to regulate the rh. Its setup to ramp up it power anytime it goes over 50% rh and kicks back down to 1 whenever its in check. It also ramps up anytime my temps go over 80°f. Both those settings run independently of each other.
Thanks for all the input. I ordered this splitter from Amazon. Hope I can connect both oscillating fans into one port?
I realize the fans and exhaust can run 24 hours a day but I’ve also read the fans last longer if they are shut off a little each day (don’t know that’s a fact). Also like to be able to do easy adjustments on the exhaust fan setup based on temp and/or humidity.
I may be totally off base. Trying to figure this stuff out.
I agree with Bluntsmoke on this. Having your temp and humidity run at setpoint is useless if you’re not replacing co2 that plants are using during lights on. And stomata are mostly closed during lights off, so temp, rh, and vpd not important at this time. This supporting it makes the most sense exhaust stays on during lights on for co2 replenishment, and most will keep on during lights off to keep rh from rising pontentially causing condensation issues and to keep their scent control functioning.
I have all this stuff and don’t use it. Keep circulation fans on 24/7 and then put exhaust in manual and set fan speed to happy medium. My situation is a little different than most though, it’s typically too cold in my tent.
