OK all you wiring guru's, take a look at this.
I am wiring in an electric fan this weekend, flex-a-lite model 575. I could not fit the SPAL fan, so had to go with FAL.
Here are links to the product page and the manual page for more info:
In the drawing below, the fan controller has been simplified. The input marked as Power is the + source for the fan. The input marked as Manual, is an input that overides the thermostat control, and turns on the fan.
1) Install a switch that performs 3 functions:
Normal (temp controlled operation)
On (always on opperation)
Off (never on operation)
2) Have 2 indicator lights
One will be on in the "On" position
One will be flashing in the "Off" position
At the bottom of this post, is the diagram I drew for this.
1) Will this work as drawn? If not, why?
2) Is a 660 ohm resistor going to work to drop the voltage low enough for the 5V LED?
3) What diodes should I use to isolate the two "on" positions?
Thanks for all your help!
