Wire leads

I’m looking at this part:

Can I wire only to the power and ground to operate this without using the pwm and other wire? I’m wondering if this fan will run using only the power and ground wires. Thanks for the help!

Per page 9 of the datasheet, leaving the PWM speed control input unconnected will cause the fan to spin at maximum speed when power is applied. This is fairly typical behavior for fans of this sort.

Thanks Rick, Can I then just connect Vcc and ground to test this blower for max air flow without damaging the blower circuitry?

That is correct.

Alright, thanks, I appreciate the help!
