|Louvered Filter Fan Kits - Orion Fans offers the lowest-cost filter fan kit in the industry. The LFG kit series is designed to prevent dust, dirt and moisture from entering industrial, server, electrical, and electronic cabinets. The fan guards also serve as a safety mechanism to protect fingers from being injured by the fan blades. The LFG kit series consists of the louvered fan guard, filter, fan, metal guard, and hardware. With standard kits available for 120 mm, 172 mm, 225 mm, 254 mm, and 280 mm AC and DC fans, the LFG series can be rated to IP54, IP55 or IP56 depending on the fan used.
|Air Flow Monitor Switches - The AFM series is a cost-effective airflow monitoring system that provides a simple alternative for indicating airflow in AC or DC fan/blower applications. The AFM module can operate an optical LED or audible-alarm when airflow falls below 8.2 ft/s due to fan filter clogs or interference with the fan blade. Field retrofittable for AC and DC fan/blower applications, the AFM airflow sensor installs perpendicular to the front or intake side of the fan and mounts via clip or clamp to any grill.
|All-Metal IP55/56 AC Fans - Built for harsh environments, Orion’s all-metal fans are IP55 or IP56 rated and designed for applications with temperature extremes, dirt, oil, and moisture. Orion Fans’ all-metal fans feature a dual ball-bearing design, impedance and thermal-protected motors, aluminum die-cast frames, and metal alloy impellers for longer lifespans of up to 50,000 hours. Available with lead wire or terminal connections, the all-metal fans have an operating temperature range of -30°C to 80°C.
|Smart Switched Power Distribution Unit - Orion Fans’ Smart Switched PDUs feature outlets which can be sequentially started, controlled, and monitored remotely. The PDU monitors the devices plugged into it, and in the event of an alert, the user-defined alarm threshold will warn the end-user via email, trap, or audible alarm.
