    Weekly Topics:

    1. Myth Busting - Autoflowers Revegging (can autoflowers reveg? Give us your thoughts!)

    Come give us your thoughts; we want to hear from you!
  • We're looking for grower submissions for any autoflowers that they have had tested by a lab or using a home testing device. The idea is to create a grouping of tests that we can use a resource to show growers (both new and experienced) what kind of cannabinoids and terpenes some of the strains we're growing are testing out with!

    Appreciate any help and consideration! Click here for the thread!

I don't know your equipment, but if you plug it into your wall outlet, it's most likely AC, unless it's running through some sort of power inverter. DC power is almost exclusive to battery powered equipment (in modern electrical systems that is). Here in the US we used DC power back in the days of Thomas Edison but that came to change when Nicola tesla proved AC was more stable, and safer in home use.

But because of the laws of that no dynamics heat is the natural byproduct of energy. There fore the more energy used, the more heat is produced in the process. That's why with light systems there is always some sort of heat control whether it be passive ( like the ones with aluminum heat sinks) or active ( the ones with built in fans). This is the case with all electrical components, I only use lights for the example because they are easy to reference.

I totally get the light part. All Ac Infinity fans (most popular on market) are 48v DC. They're inverted and draw less than 50w on some models.

that makes sense being inverted to draw less wattage, and being brush-less definitely reduces friction and therefore heat. but when electricity passes through any kind of material it is met with resistance, this generates heat. The greater the resistance, the greater the heat. the more conductive the material is the less heat it generates. this is why when lightning strikes a lightning rod it goes to ground and prevents a house from catching fire. wood is less conductive than the metal lightning rod so when lightning strikes a tree it usually catches fire.

if you take two ac infinity fans of different sizes say a 4 inch and a 6 inch, the increased current passing through the wiring will generate more heat because its met with more resistance. now being made using modern technology and with quality components i'm sure they minimize this as much as reasonably possible but it cant be eliminated.
i know this is long but i hope i made this a little more understandable.
