Orion Fans' OA109AP Series delivers airflows ranging from 62 to 110 CFM. The OA172SAP Series Series delivers 103 to 212 CFM.

Dallas-based Orion Fans, a division of Knight Electronics, has developed a series of thermally-controlled AC and DC fans for cooling solid-state lighting. The smart fans deliver high airflow to help prevent premature LED failure due to excessive heat. The smart fans' thermal controller increases or decreases the speed of the fans in response to the air temperature, significantly reducing power consumption by as much as 30%. Orion Fans' LED thermal-management products are available in multiple sizes and include heat sinks and custom voltages when applicable. The thermally controlled smart AC fans feature a ball bearing design that significantly reduced noise levels and delivers airflows ranging from 62 to 110 CFM for the OA109AP Series and from 103 to 212 CFM for the OA172SAP Series. Fans for LED cooling are available with high AC voltages of 308 and 480 V, and custom DC voltages of 28 and 36 VDC as well as standard DC voltages of 5, 12, 24, 48 and 60 VDC. The DC fans can be IP55-sealed for outdoor use or within harsh applications. "Heat dissipation is a critical function in applications such as high intensity LED warehouse lighting, as a rise in temperature over a long period of time causes degradation of LED life expectancy," said David Luna, Orion Fans' product marketing manager. "Our environmentally-considerate smart fans are designed to offer a single solution for a number of problems within LED cooling applications. We have expanded our product offering to deliver customized options in both AC and DC voltage models with lead times that are the shortest in the industry." Pricing starts at $21.00 with lead times ranging from stock to ten weeks, depending on the complexity of and custom heat sink tooling requirements. Orion Fans
