In this thesis a fan controller was implemented using an Arduino to supply a pulse width modulation (PWM) control signal. The controller is used to control fans when there is no control signal and power available from a finished base transceiver station. This Bachelors thesis consists of the planning, sourcing, building, developing software and testing the implemented controller.

The controller was built with an Arduino board and 48V power supply which are controlled via a PC. Two different types of software were used, a simpler one using Windows Remote Arduino Experience and a Python based software which enabled more precise control.
