Main Power Panel & PWM Controllers for 8 Switched Fans. I chose Noctua, for all but the 80mm pair. Each pair has intake and outflow air. There's an independent ceiling intake/exhaust fan already installed. Totaling 9 fans. I took into account wind flow patterns on land.
2 - 80mm - cools electronics case
2 - 120mm - Heavy Duty Industrial PWM > xxxCFM (forgot)
2 - 140mm - HD Industrial PWM >180CFM
2 - 200mm - FXL

Despite using a Punch to mark my premarked measured drill holes, a couple "walked" a bit off path.
I scrounged in my breadboard supplies, found the switches I needed - YAY! Will add tiny shrink tubing on wires.
I want to make that Dremel Drill Press. I have a table drill press, but I didn't use it.
I am considering adding in a Thermister circuit for temp control. It's not really needed, it'd just be fun to do.
Also Arduino...more fun!

The place for all types of Metal Vents, the round "Soffit Louvered Vents" begin at 1" up to as large as 6".
My preference is metal over plastic ABS type.

Ventmaster's Store
https://ventmastersstore.com/products/6 ... e-bag-of-2


Vents USA
8" and larger round Copper & Stainless Steel metal vents https://ventsusa.com/wall-vents

Both stores have other types of vents. My need was round louvered vents.

Smart guy! He probably explains DIY Solar Systems better than anyone else out there. I take some issues with his "messy" wiring, but I hope to meet up with Will later this year to help deal with that.
Although he does this video for the RV, the only difference is your stationary building is the RV.
