Orion Reversible Flow Fans Feature Directional Flow and Speed Control in One Unit

Previously, two fans were required if the designer wanted to achieve two directions of airflow.

New Yorker Electronics (Northvale, NJ) has announced Orion Fans’ release of its new series of microcontroller-based, Reversible Flow Fans rated up to IP68. By utilizing PWM signals to control fan speed, these fans provide a solution for difficult cooling requirements. Fan speed and airflow direction control can now be achieved with one fan without supplementing excess wires or circuitry.

Previously, two fans were required if the designer wanted to achieve two directions of airflow. This arrangement added cost to the bill of materials, required more area in the design to accommodate both fans, increased maintenance requirements, and lowered product reliability.

Orion Fans’ Reversible Flow Fans are a specialty design that enables some unique uses:

  • Outdoor applications where the device intakes air in one direction, but a periodic reverse flow ensures air pathways do not become clogged with environmental debris.
  • Equipment where seasonal environmental changes require different airflow of intaking versus exhausting air.
  • Situations where a “confidence check” is needed to confirm the proper operation of airflow monitoring sensors.
  • Applications where dynamic control of airflow pathways is needed, and large airflow check valves may be difficult or impossible to integrate.
  • HVAC applications where occasional intake of environmental air is required to comply with building codes.
  • Other applications include vending machines, cooler display cases and lighting.
