Dallas, Tex. − Orion Fans has expanded its AC product line to include IP55-rated versions of the OA Series AC fans, targeting rugged, harsh environment applications. These fans feature die-cast aluminum frames and a dual ball-bearing system to deliver a reliable and quiet cooling solution, according to Orion.
The IP55-rated AC fans are available in voltage ranges of 115 Vac and 230 Vac and power ratings from 8 W to 158 W, with airflows of 110 CFM to 1,130 CFM. Other sizes, as well as DC fans, and blowers with special functions such as tachometer output, locked rotor alarm, pulse width modulation (PWM) input, and thermal and constant speed controls, are available upon request. Parts include the OA109, OA172SAP, OA172SAPL, OA180, OA225 and OA280 fans.
"In harsh environment settings, where dust, moisture and other contaminants may come into direct contact with the fan, the IP55-rated sealing is required to ensure safe, reliable operation and an extended service life of the device," said David Luna, product marketing manager for Orion Fans, in a statement. "With distributor inventory and the shortest lead times in the industry, these robust AC fans can be shipped quickly for new product designs or for retrofit and/or replacement."
Availability: The OA AC fans are available through Orion's distribution network. Lead times are from stock to 12 weeks.
Pricing: Starts at $20.60 in OEM quantities.
