Aerco – New speed controllable AC fan offers up to 30% energy savingsJul 3 2012 - New Technologies and Energy Harvesting [More New Technologies and Energy Harvesting Articles]
Now available in the UK from Aerco is the new, award-winning ADDA OSmart AC fan – the first AC equipment fan that can vary its speed with changes in ambient temperature – thus offering the flexibility of modern DC fans with the practicality and convenience of an AC power supply.
Winner of the ‘Best Choice’ award at the Taipei Computer Association in May 2012, the OSmart AC fan leads the way in AC fan design and can save as much as 30% energy when used in servers, telecommunication racks, UPS systems, refrigeration plants and industrial machinery.
The sensing thermistor of the OSmart fan can either be mounted on the fan hub or on a lead allowing it to be placed in a critical area of the rack or cabinet. Controlling fan speed to adjust for optimum operating temperatures will not only save energy but will prevent over-cooling of expensive and critical components.
The axial fans are built in the 120mm x 120mm x 38mm frame size, are fitted with precision ball bearings and available for 115V 60Hz or 230V 50Hz supply voltage. They are available in a number of speed ranges with a maximum airflow capability of 45l/s (96CFM).More news from Aerco
