12v for a fan?

Post by Bobbystone » Mon May 16, 2016 4:15 pm

Whats the best way to get 12v for the cooling fan for my E3D extruder? The MAIN fan only puts out 6v And I get 0V on the OPT port. Thanks for your help!

Hi Bobby,

If you get 0V at the opt port it seems to be damaged. Another option is to insert the fan wires into the incoming 12V line.
