The trend toward higher power densities in control cabinets, variable frequency drives and other industrial applications is further increasing cooling demand. That is also placing high demands on the fans used. David Krusemark, a sales engineer in the IVT-Industrial division of ebm-papst, will be making a presentation on the subject at the VDMA Forum as part of the SPS trade fair in Nuremberg.
EC fans are increasingly being used in industrial applications due to increasing power density and shortage of space. EC technology offers many advantages: The fans are demand-controlled and regulated, and their efficiency is clearly superior to that of AC fans.
The shift from legacy AC technology to energy-efficient EC technology results in new challenges. The reason for this is the sometimes major contamination of supply networks, often not in compliance with standards. EC fans have to meet the increasing demands of the industrial environment and, for example, have to be designed differently from fans designed for use in household applications. In recent years, ebm-papst has confronted this problem through numerous field tests. Based on intensive research and development work, the EC fans have now been modified for industrial use. Krusemark will discuss case studies and potential solutions in his presentation.
In the future, Green Intelligence will enable more features such as predictive maintenance, condition monitoring, or the performance of additional control functions by the fan.
