ebm-papst Offers High-power Fans with Less Noise

ebm-papst AxiForce tubeaxial fan

December 23, 2019

ebm-papst AxiForce tubeaxial fan

The new fans are based on the successful S Force series of tubeaxial fans from ebm-papst. The series of new AxiForce fans starts at a size of 80 mm. They are used to cool automation equipment such as variable frequency drives and robot controllers, LED displays, power modules for 5G mobile network infrastructure, electronics in video streaming servers, or data center equipment.

The new AxiForce fans have the same dimensions as their predecessors but with aerodynamically optimized impellers and housings. At an operating point of 108 m³/h at 285 Pa back pressure, the AxiForce 80 delivers an increase in efficiency of 42% and reduces noise emission by 7 dB(A); the new generation delivers more power with less noise.

The new AxiForce 80 tubeaxial fan was developed for applications with high back pressure (up to 1,400 Pa). It has a steeper characteristic curve as needed for applications such as cooling automation equipment with densely packed components whose waste heat must be removed with axial air flow. The characteristic curve’s saddle area is nearly twice as high, enabling greater air flows in spite of higher back pressures and achieving considerable performance increases in the applications.

A special environment-resistant variant was developed for the new AxiForce, satisfying the requirements of protection class IP68 – dustproof and protected against powerful water jets. This variant can also pass a 30 day salt spray test. Also available is a version that satisfies stricter EMC requirements according to DIN EN 55032 class B.

The new AxiForce fan series begins with size 80/80/38 mm, which will be available from March 2020. Other sizes are to follow in the summer of 2020.
