Energy Management & Enclosures
DIN-rail mounted fan
Orion Fans has developed a DIN-rail mounted fan for thermal management issues in enclosures or cabinets. The SpotCool DIN-rail mount fan provides an energy-efficient alternative to design-in cooling solutions with a simple installation that can be placed in any enclosure, the company says. The SpotCool fan provides directed airflow of up to 120 CFM in any area that facility air conditioning cannot reach with minimal noise and power consumption. Designated the OD1232-SPOT/DIN, the complete SpotCool solution is immediately available through Allied Electronics and Orion Fans. It features a standard thermistor control function that modulates airflow according to the ambient temperature changes within the enclosure, meaning that it will increase and decrease airflow in response to temperature changes. The fan is a tube axial DC fan that is able to provide sufficient on-demand supplemental airflow to cool equipment used on a 24-hour basis; and can prevent equipment downtime caused by higher temperatures during routine shutdown of facility HVAC systems, according to the company. The OD1232-SPOT/DIN fan is a 12 VDC fan that measures 120 by 120 by 32 mm and is offered with ball bearings. The fan features a maximum airflow of 120 CFM with a speed of 3,550 RPM. Operating temperature ranges from -20 to 80 degrees C.
