Belgium is represented this year with innovative fan solutions for the commercial vehicle air conditioning at the trade fair Busworld in Kortrijk, fan solutions for the commercial vehicle air conditioning ebm-papst, leading manufacturer of motors and fans. As a highlight, ebm-papst public introduces a new generation of powerful axial fans in the flat form of construction. Due to the ebm – papst EC technology GreenTech the new fans with very high efficiency work. The integrated electronics allow a demand-oriented and thus efficient regulation of the air conditioning. The user in addition to the previously known control via linear voltage and PWM now also benefits from an optional controlled by LIN-bus. The electronics are encapsulated according to protection class IP 6K9K and meets all requirements for rough ambient temperatures such as heat, dust and extreme weather changes. The flat, compact design and the new seven schauflige wheel design of the fans significantly improve the current technical conditions in the commercial vehicle air conditioners. Therefore, a quiet and efficient operation is guaranteed.
The use of glass fibre-reinforced high-performance plastics ensures a high mechanical stability of the fans at reduced weight. Thus it can increase vehicle payload or further reduce the consumption of the vehicle. In applications that are subject to high ambient temperatures, the new system of power Derating the power consumption of the fan fits as far as, that continue to each time a reliable operation of the fan is guaranteed. A thermal shutdown of the fan and a resulting malfunction of the air conditioner belongs to the past. Of course, the new fans already have approval under the new EMC Directive ECE-R 10.
About ebm-papst the ebm-papst group is the world’s leading manufacturer of fans and motors and is pacing the high efficiency EC technology. In the past fiscal year 2010/11, the company achieved a turnover of over 1.3 billion. ebm-papst employs 17 Production facilities (in Germany, China, United States) and 57 sales locations over 11,000 employees worldwide. Fans and motors of the world leader can be found, e.g. in ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment, household appliances, heating technology, IT and telecommunications, for applications in the passenger car and commercial vehicle engineering in many industries.
