I do miss the easy config of my #GPIO fan. Previously I easily set it to come on when the CPU reached 55°C, but I can't figure out how to target it manually from the #terminal. I'm happy to write a #Bash #script for the task of monitoring and triggering the power. But I can't do that until I figure out the commands.
Do you hava Python on it?
If so you could even controll the speed with pwm
Yeah should be Python installed (if not, I could easily install it). Is pwm a module?
It's basicaly, fast on and off switching, with a variable on part (0-100%) allowing you to control the fan speed.
But the pi can only switch the 3v3 pins and only with some mA. So i soldered a transistor etc. to switch the 5v supply. You can easily find such circuits on the net.
