Network Cabinet Cooling

I have my Pepwave Max Transit router mounted inside a cabinet. I'm trying to find a good solution to move air in and out.

Ideally....two fans, one on each side of cabinet.
Variable speed based on temperature in cabinet.
Direct wire 12 volt. No AC adapter.

Found this on Amazon and it would be perfect except power requirement.

Thanks!
Josh

A friend uses two of these in his home network cabinet... one blowing in down low on the left side, the other blowing out high on the right side.

While not obvious from the photos this fan has a temperature sensor bead on the end of a 12-15 inch cord. You put the sensor in the hot area and the temperature controls the fan.

www.amazon.com/ARCTIC-F12-Temperature-Controlled-intelligent-Configuration/dp/B0037AQLLM at around $9 each.

I forgot to mention... the ones I posted above are self contained 12 volt fans, no controller needed.

I installed a small 120V muffin fan plugged into the power strip that powers TV, DirecTV receiver and DVD player. If strip is on, fan is on.

I put in the power strip to be able to reset DirecTV without unplugging it. Flipping the switch is a lot easier.

I would add that a 12v cross flow fan is very quiet and move a lot of air . Can exhaust through a small wide opening. They are popular to cool powerful amps in cars. Blow air across wide heatsink.
