Thermal management devices are an essential component of any piece of electronics equipment from laptop computers to servers. In the cooling world, designers often select “modified standard” products to meet their specific cooling requirements. However, these devices also need to be available through second sources. Like most electronics components, purchasers are demanding second sources to ensure a stable supply chain.
Buyers looking for a new source of supply for DC fans and blowers should take a look at Orion Fans’ product portfolio. The thermal management manufacturer recently added 52 new DC fans and four new DC blowers.
Orion’s expanded portfolio of DC fans and blowers include a wide range of package sizes, speed (RPM), airflow (CFM), and special function combinations to meet a variety of application requirements. All of these new products are in stock including those with special function combinations, which can help speed up the design cycle for a wide range of applications without extending lead times.
Special function options include tachometer, alarm, PWM input, temperature sensor, thermistor speed control, dual speed, lead wires and metal impeller. Some models also offer salt/fog and an IP-55 rating. A variety of speeds and voltages also are available.
"With our expanded DC fan and blower offering, we are giving customers confidence regarding the future availability of an integral component in their cooling system. At the request of many customers, we are pleased to help shore up their supply chain and maintain a stable source of supply," said David Luna, vice president of marketing at Orion Fans, in a statement.
