Dimmer/fan controller for two fans

I currently have two outside fans with lights. Each fan draws .68 amps and has three 40w bulbs. There is a single switch with power (b,w,grd) and a three wire cable from the fan (b,w,r,grd). Is it possible to have a dual controller dim the lights and control fan speeds? If so what do I need.

For each fan/light combo?

Yes.

There are lots of options. If you only want wall controls, a Hunter All-Fan/Light Dual Slide Preset Control, Model 27183 is probably a good choice.

Are the switch boxes outside also?

Then the control doesn't have to be weather resistant. The one I linked to will work. Is that what you were looking for?

More information

I might have mislead everyone. I have two fans controlled by one switch. The Hunter model 27183 does not say it will support multiple fans. Will research a little deeper.
