SC8206 Remote Fan Control IC

[Click the image to enlarge it]

The SC8206 is an IC that is used to control commercial Swing Fans with remotes. It is available in 18-pin and 20-pin package and has built in timers, oscillators, speed controls and operating modes making it easy to control Fans. The IC is normally used in combination with SC5104 which is remote decoder IC.

Where to use SC8206

The SC8206 is an age old Remote Fan Control IC that can be used in commercial Fans. The IC can be interfaced with remote control decoder IC and the fan can be controlled by a wireless RF remote. A typical application circuit of the IC is shown below.

Circuit using SC8206 Remote Fan Control IC

 

The IC is available in 18-pin and 20-pin package. The above schematics are given for 20-pin circuit but the same can also be used for 18-pin ignoring pin 19 and 20. As you circuit has two motors, one that controls the fan motor and the other that controls the swing of the motor. The IC supports three operating speeds and hence the fan motor is connected to three output pin of the IC each for a different speed level. Apart from this the IC also supports three operating modes which the explanation for each mode can be found in the datasheet linked at the bottom of this page.

The IC also supports a buzzer and LED outputs to indicate the status of the fan. The above diagram shows push buttons as switches to control the parameters of the fan, but it can also be controlled by a remote whose signals will be picked up by the infrared receiver connected to pin DI. The datasheet also shows an application circuit for SC5104 IC which will acts a remote decoder along with this IC.  

 

Application
