MOTION CONTROL: Dallas-based Orion Fans, a division of Knight Electronics, experienced extensive growth with its 10 inch ac fans designed specifically to move a large amount of air through confined spaces. Designated the OA254 Series, the ac fans measure 254mm x 89mm (10 inches x 3.5 inches) and feature airflow of 547CFM on the standard model and up to 850CFM on the XC high performance model. Ideal for applications involving confined spaces including rack and panel and cabinet enclosures, these fans produce a significant amount of backpressure at the high CFM rating.
Available in 115V ac and 230V ac versions, the OA254 Series AC fans feature voltage ranges from 80 to 130V ac, and 160 to 260V ac, respectively. Rated power for the standard model is 35W and up to 75W on the XC high performance model. Rated speed ranges from 1650 to 2700RPM. The fans feature a dual ball-bearing system, impedance and thermally protected motor, and diecast aluminum frame with a PBT, UL94V-0 plastic impeller. Maximum static pressure for the OA254 ac fans is 0.39 inches H2O for the standard version and up to 1.14 icnch H2O for the high performance model, with noise levels to 69dB and operating temperature range from -20 to +80C. The fans feature a life expectancy of 60,000 hours at 40C (L10).
1-99 OEM price for the OA254 Series AC fans ranges from $61.00 to $71.00.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
