SEPA Europe: Fan insert ensures higher reliability in professional equipment
Many devices are offered with the catchword “fanless”. This is intended to convey to the customer that these are inexpensive and particularly reliable units. However, this is by no means always true; in fact, active cooling can pay off. It also increases the reliability of the unit.
he use of fans in professional units is often circumvented, sometimes even knowingly accepting significant disadvantages. Early failures, especially due to electrolytic capacitors operating at too high a temperature, are not at all uncommon.
It is undisputed that the fan is an unpopular component because there are doubts about its reliability. Moreover, it is a fact that cheap fans can be at most average in quality. The Japanese company Nippon Keiki Works LTD. (brand name SEPA) has been engaged in precision electromechanical equipment since 1943. Producing first quality was and is the company’s top principle.
