Adding intelligent motion controls (IMC) to your fan or blower design can maximize your system’s performance. There are several types of IMC solutions available to add functionality to your fans and blowers. Four of the solutions include a rotation detector, life detection, DC voltage signal control, and current source signal control. In this post, we will discuss each of these solutions.
The direct current fans, or DC fans, are powered with a potential of fixed value such as the voltage of a battery. Typical voltage values for DC fans are, 5V, 12V, 24V and 48V.
The Importance of Selecting the Right Cooling System
In the medical equipment industry, proper component functionality and performance is of utmost importance, as failures can cause dangerous malfunctions and delays that put patients at risk. When selecting a cooling system for your medical equipment application, it’s important to consider your project’s specific temperature and application needs. This will help to ensure longevity and reliability in your medical equipment.
Axial vs Centrifugal Fans
There are two primary varieties of fan, axial fans and centrifugal fans. Pelonis Technologies, Inc. (PTI), a global leader in fan technology for more than 25 years, manufactures both axial and centrifugal fans.
To help clear up that confusion, here is a breakdown of the fan types, their benefits, and their uses.
The design and function of a centrifugal fan is very different from those of an axial fan. Their differences make them each suited for different applications and customers are sometimes unclear as to which fan type will best suit their needs.
As summer’s temperatures reach their peak, keeping your facilities cool is important for maintaining comfortable working conditions. Cooling commercial spaces properly means finding the right balance for employee comfort, temperature/humidity control, and energy use. In manufacturing operations where additional heat is generated by machinery, and in warehouses where goods must be stored in constant environmental conditions, cooling systems are vital mechanisms.
