    Do you provide voltage and frequency control for the fan or just voltage control via a triac? If triac control, how do you protect the fan motor from burning at low speeds or humming noise? Please give details.

    I have installed a Broan QT90E and the users complain it does too good a job of removing the hot air from the bathroom (it's 90CFM rating is a slightly higher than the calculated requirement). Can the 57W be used to vary the fan speed without damaging the QT90E?

    Can a 57W be wired on a timer

    Can the 57W fan speed control be wired to a timer (solid state) so the fan can be timed for (example) 5, 10, 15, 30 minutes - i.e., the speed contol wired the timer, the timer being the source of line supply for the 57W speed control ?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on model 57W. There should be no reason that a speed control switch cannot be used in conjunction with a timer switch. The way this way this would be wired, would be to have these devices in series with one another. This way, the timer will run for the desired time, at the speed chosen with the 57W

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on model 57W. Yes. The 57W speed switch may be installed in series with a normal wall switch. When the switch is up, or in the on position, the fan will operate at the selected speed on the 57W.
