This kit is for replacing old, loud, or AC fans that lack the quality and control features of DC Fans. These are top-quality, DC (low-voltage) fans with a special levitation bearing system for quiet and long lasting operation. It is not commonly known that ball bearing and sleeve bearing fans are not intended for vertical mounting which is how most fans in audio video cooling are mounted. The reason is that the fan spindles rest on the bearings quickly wearing them out and creating noise. The Levitation system floats the spindle so there is not direct contact between the spindle and the bearings. This accounts for the long lasting and quiet operation and being low voltage, there are more control options for the fans as well.
The most obvious application for these fans are for use in rack manufacturers faceplates that utilize 2 - 4.5" or 120mm fans. This kit will directly fit into the two fan version of those faceplates and if you have a 3 fan version, use this kit and simply add another fan and short y-cable (available for purchase separately).
- Package includes:
- 2 - 4.5" (120mm) DC Fans
- 1 - Short Y-Cable
- 1 - 500mA Power Supply
- 8 - Rubber Fan Mounts (In some cases, fan screws may be necessary)
some installations may vary, generally you will mount the fans by inserting the
rubber mounts into the fan/rack bracket.
Then determine the proper
direction of the airflow and there is an arrow on the side of the fan that
indicates the direction of the airflow.
Once that is determined,
insert the mounts into the mounting holes on the fans and pull the mounts until
Now connect the Short Y-Cable aligning Tip to + on the
Once properly connected, then plug in the power
supply to the Short-Y cable again aligning Tip to + and then plug in the power
Once the fans are on, set the voltage to the desired setting
with the primary considerations being noise and effectiveness. Typically the
power supplies will be set between 7 and 12V DC.
