DC fans have a variable, uneven flow. In contrast, AC fans change direction 50 times a second in order to provide a constant flow. But when energy-efficiency costs come into play, more designers are opting for the EC fans rather than familiar AC and DC versions. DC technology has become much more sophisticated in recent years, and it can now be applied to both residential and industrial ceiling fans. DC fans have motors that rely on permanent, built-in magnets in order to attract and repel a rotor around an axis joined with inverters. DC technology is much newer than AC technology. The permanent magnets are mounted inside the rotor with the fan impeller attached. In EC fans’ permanent magnet motors run on high voltage direct current (DC) electricity with built in AC to DC conversion which allows them to run direct from single phase or three phase mains supplies. There are several suppliers of AC, DC as well as motors.

Demand for construction industry in developed nations, and encouraging initiatives by various governments, worldwide, on aeration and ventilation are projected to boost the demand for AC-DC-EC fans in the near future. Rise in awareness of the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ) and government regulations on the ventilation prove will be the key driving factors for the growth of the AC-DC-EC fans market.

What is AC-DC-EC Fans?

The fans are employed to maintain optimum operating temperatures and in order to achieve them temperatures the fan will spin at variable rates in order to supply the device with fresh air. The fans use feedback mechanism systems to collect operating information at real time to ensure supply of just the right amount of cool air to the components, protecting it against heat that can harm the electronics and cause drop-offs in performance.

The angled blades enforce air from surrounding to move into the device in a single direction. The aerodynamic shape of the blades forces air from one side of the housing through the middle and out to the other side at an accelerated rate. The inflowing air side is placed facing away from the device that it is cooling, allowing for the cooler air surrounding the device to enter and eliminating the settling of dust for optimal performance.

The motors in AC cooling fans operate at higher voltage than DC cooling fans; the AC models are frequently used to produce high pressure air currents in systems where the performance gets affected because of the fan’s electromagnetic interference.  DC cooling fans are used at lower voltage (5V, 12V and 24V) and in larger sizes (119mm to 172mm). In contrast, 115V is one of the most popular AC cooling fan models. EC fans are generally recognized as being the latest thing in energy efficient air movement technology EC offers the OEM noiseless soft start and improved heat efficiency more than just energy-efficiency. EC fans operate with mechanical commutation instead of electronic circuitry, which supplies the precise armature current in correct direction at the right time for accurate motor control. Their designs are further simplified by using a compact external rotor design with stationary windings.

What are the major applications for AC-DC-EC Fans?

AC DC EC fans are found in a wide range of services including air conditioning, ventilation and heat-recovery, heating, refrigeration, humidification, condensers, evaporators, laminar flow units, fume and dust controlling and applied across wide range of sectors. They find application in various industries; construction, electronics, chemical, mechanicals all have to incorporate these fans in their worksites and equipment continuously to make their work more efficient. AC DC motor based fans have been in use since very long but the EC technology is comparatively new and is implied for achieving still higher performance and excellent controls on the equipment.

Market Research and Market Trends of AC-DC-EC Fans Ecosystem

 - The AC DC fans find uses in wide range of industries and have gradually seen improvement in design and efficiency. The latest EC fans offer tremendous energy savings of 30 % on average and same amount of reduced carbon emissions thus making its implication a step towards green environment moreover reducing operational costs.

  • Intelligent electronics for numerous control functions is a new trend in this arena and are being incorporated in these fans. They help in speed and pressure control in very precise manner and constant speed and pressure have been achieved without external sensors. There are also innovations such as embedding hardware and software from a single source which save material and also make their functioning simpler.

  • There are consistent efforts being made to achieve step-less and infinitely variable speed control at efficient operation costs the use of software is continuously being inculcated. Mains input power supplies for the AC-DC-EC fans these days are increasingly becoming fully integrated so that their installation will help to achieve the air output with the required characteristics.

  • Motor and drive product innovation continues to be one of the biggest influences of to be energy-efficiency regulations and hence there has been thorough research. Efficiency is taking over; the pump for greener applications and the cost cutting is driving these trends. Electric motor manufacturers operate under guidelines the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which went into effect on December 2010 which gets changes in five years period since then.

  • The designs these days are implementing compact motors making them fully interchangeable products for retrofit i.e. they can be interchangeably used as AC/DC/EC  drivers. Thus their implementation in the various systems gives the option of using same hardware at different places and their reusability is increased. It is an opportunity to bring new technology and functionality to their products. With ever-increasing demand for energy efficient systems, when it comes to fan based products.
