ORION FANS Electronically Commutated (EC) family of fans now includes 11 new models to meet a wide range of ac application requirements and expand design options. Products feature 7 new frame sizes with CFMs ranging from 39CFM to 220CFM. Units provide a low power, energy-saving cooling solution for ac applications. By maintaining the same interface between the fan and equipment, EC fans can be used as drop-in replacements for equivalent-sized ac fans. The ac input fans utilize a brushless dc motor and incorporate voltage transformation within the motor for significantly lower power consumption. The line includes 60mm, 80mm, 92mm, 120mm, 172mm, 250mm and 254mm models.
