Divided into five series with sizes ranging from 80 to 172 mm, the S-Force tubeaxial fans can reach nominal speeds up to 14,000 rpm.
Part of the S-Force generation of fans, the
S-Force radial blowers from ebm-papst Inc. (Farmington, CT, U.S.;
www.ebmpapst.us) are backward-curved motorized impellers equipped with
a new high-powered motor. The air movers feature nominal speeds of up
to 4600 rpm and provide airflow of up to 988 cfm. Such performance,
according to the firm, has yet to be achieved by other products of the
same size range on the market.
Composed of six
series with sizes ranging from 120 to 225 mm, the S-Force radial
blowers are standard with pulse-width modulation (PWM) control input
and speed signal. The blowers can be used in heat exchangers, fresh-air
filters for telecommunication cabinets, wireless electronic cabinets,
and other cooling applications.

radial blowers, the S-Force tubeaxial fans also feature high
performance. They are divided into five series with sizes ranging from
80 to 172 mm, and can reach nominal speeds up to 14,000 rpm. Every
S-Force-series product is equipped with a compact single-phase and
three-phase multi-pole motors with wear-free electronic commutation.
With high efficiency and low dissipated energy, the electronically
commutated (EC) motors attain a peak power of more than 300 W. Such
peak power is equivalent to a 500% increase compared with predecessors
of the same sizes, the firm says.
power performance while keeping the fans compact requires the housing
to be extra robust. The research team at ebm-papst designed the S-Force
fan housing with high mechanical precision to meet this requirement. To
ensure smooth running and consistent low noise, the fan incorporates
optimized inside contours of the housing, a small gap clearance between
the blade and venturi housing, and winglets on the fan blades. Newly
developed commutation techniques, which allow a gentle reversal of
polarity and minimum switching losses, contribute to smooth running of
the fans even at high speeds. By avoiding steep switching edges when
changing motor coil, the structure-born noise induced by the motor is
also significantly reduced.
The EC compact
fans can be easily adapted to individual requirements thanks to their
intelligent features, including speed monitoring, closed-loop speed
control, operation monitoring, and microprocessor-controlled motor
management for software-based fan operation.
