December's Motion Ideas and Tips

【 Product 】DC Input Axial Fans Lineup Expansion

The popular MD Series axial fans lineup has been expanded to basic, alarm, long-life, variable flow, and splash proof types to satisfy more application requirements.

Axial fans use a propeller to generate airflow in the direction of the axis of rotation. Capable of generating a large airflow, axial fans are suited for applications requiring ventilation cooling. Axial flow fans
Fan Types

S Type = Standard/Basic

Fan ventilation

The large airflow of axial fans is suitable for ventilation and cooling inside electronic devices.

A Type = Alarm

Low Speed Alarm - MD Series A type axial fans
This fan has a built-in alarm that will help to prevent unexpected problems or malfunctions with your equipment. It offers a choice between stall alarm and low-speed alarm.

E Type = Efficiency/Long-Life

180,000 hours

In addition to the cooling capacity, this fan promises a lifespan of approximately 180,000 hours giving you up to 20 years of continuous, durable long-life performance. 

V Type = Variable Flow

Fan Speed Controller for MD Series V type

The rotation speed for this fan can be adjusted via a PWM controller. This will allow you to adjust airflow and static pressure resulting in energy savings and noise reduction.

P Type = Splash Proof

Washodwn - MD Series P type axial fans

This splash-proof type fan can be used in both wet and dusty environments. It conforms to the IP68 protection rating as described by the IEC standard.
