Summary0002959: Linking power consumption with speeds.
DescriptionI remember something i wrote a few years ago -

I am again thinking how i could make my situation work.

I have 2 fans in the front of a case to cool 5 hard drives in a lan pc that acts as a media server. The problem is the hard drives are set to spin down after 20 minutes of idle, so no active cooling is needed when they are off and they just bring dust inside.

I can't link the fans to react to anything that would make sense. HDD temp involves smart reading and the hard drive would never spin down the motor.

Having a header linked to the W value reported by the UPS would solve this in an instant. When the hard drives sleep the power consumption is 12W, as 1 or more hard drives wake to serve what's needed, the power consumption goes to 25W-35W, whatever. Perfect reference point to make a fan header go to a desired value! When the drives go back to sleep, W value returns to 12 and the header could be 0.

Is this making sense?
