Providing design engineers with a wide range of DC and AC fans for dusty or moist environment applications, Orion Fans announced the availability of an IP55 rating for a significant number of its fans. The availability of this rating in most DC and selected AC fan series enables their use in several applications including certain HVAC equipment, blowers, medical and wind power devices and remote antenna installation. Orion Fans offers most of its DC fan series and the following AC fan series with an IP55 rating: OA109AP, OA180AP, OA225AN and OA280AN.
The IP55 rating indicates protection from dust and jet spray from all directions. This rating is achieved by applying special sealing to wires, joints and motherboards, giving these fans a higher degree of water resistance that allows outdoor use for many fans that could previously only be specified for an indoor environment.
“The option to add this rating to so many of our fans opens up a vast array of outdoor and marine applications,” said David Luna Product Marketing Manager for Orion Fans. “One new application involves a powerful bicycle light that requires components rated for dusty or wet environments with high vibration.”
The IP55 rating option is available in select fan series from stock to 12 weeks.
