05.02.2020 - A more variable, smarter chip cooler on the basis of an ultra-flat radial fan

Product innovation - Embedded World Trade Fair 2020

SEPA EUROPE has developed a powerful active cooler specially for compact designs. It is as small as a matchbox and has a thermal resistance of a mere 2.5 K/W. The ultra-flat radial fan can be combined with varying heat sinks for customized solutions. The product innovation will be presented for the first time at the Embedded World Trade Fair 2020.

Chip cooling with the aid of heat sinks usually requires a lot of space and is not only heavy but also expensive.  The specialists at SEPA EUROPE have developed a chip cooler with minimum space requirements for compact designs. The core component of the compact cooler is the ultra-flat blower HY40H that is combined with a Kühligel® of pure aluminium. The special feature of the new cooling solution is its variability which means that the size and shape of the heat sink can be freely chosen. Users can thus assemble the cooler to optimally fulfil their requirements.

With a thermal resistance of a mere 2.5 K/W, the new chip cooler withstands a power dissipation of up to 15 W and in doing so guarantees the operational safety of the entire embedded system. The blower is equipped with the highly durable Magfix® sleeve bearing and has an impressive service life expectancy of von 210 000 h (MTBF) at 40 °C. Thanks to the PWM input combined with the tacho output the speed can be both controlled and monitored.

The lightweight compact cooling unit is easy to attach using the double-sided adhesive thermal conductive foil TCT or the thermally conductive two-component adhesive HERNON 746. Both are available from SEPA EUROPE’s wide product range.

13.01.2020 - Complete assembly for powerful chip cooling

Chip cooler HXB40FGK

Inspired by customer inquiries, SEPA EUROPE has developed a new, modular assembly for the efficient cooling of chips. The core component is a SEPA axial fan that is mounted on a 40 mm pure aluminium heat sink – a so-called Kühligel®.  It is equipped with a finger guard and a double-sided adhesive heat pad for screwless mounting on the housing or inside the device.

Thanks to the compact design, the light weight and the screwless mounting, this assembly enables accurate positioning and thus effective cooling of the hot spot. The chip cooler HXB40FGK is equipped with a high precision ball bearing and can be used at ambient temperatures between -10 and +85 °C thus opening up a wide range of application possibilities. A further advantage is the long service life of the fan with 350 000 h (MTBF) at 40°C.

The chip cooler assembly HXB40FGK is supplied as a standard component. It can however, be customized. Parameters, e.g. size, tacho output, PWM input, operating voltage or connector assembly, can be specially tailored by SEPA EUROPE to meet the requirements of the customers.

11.10.2019 - 40 mm classic fan with optimized aerodynamics

New fan blades provide improved performance with the same level of noise

One of the most popular SEPA EUROPE fans is the axial fan with the dimensions 40x40x10 mm and the popular Magfix® sleeve bearing. This year it underwent complete revision and further development. The new fan generation is known as the LF40P and with the same external dimensions is installed in the same way as the previous model.

The new and currently unique rotor geometry is obvious at first sight. It is completely different from the previous shape and layout. Thanks to the distinctive rotor blade with a cut, either a clear noise reduction can be achieved at the same speed or the same noise level as previous generations with 25% more air performance. The current model is equipped with the SEPA MagFix® bearing and PWM input with which the speed can be set to meet the necessary requirements.

The LF40P is an excellent example for the permanent further development of products at SEPA EUROPE

10.07.2019 - New super flat chip cooler: a smart combination of „Kühligel“® and micro fan

A smart combination of a „Kühligel“® and a micro fan for achieving optimum thermal management

The new super flat active chip cooler of the cooling specialist SEPA EUROPE is a convincing solution for applications in the embedded computing sector, in particular for single board computers. The HZ25B05 with its dimensions of 25x25x6.5 mm can be installed even in flat applications and ensures highly effective heat dissipation. The size of this super flat design is not its only advantage, but also its exceptionally low noise level.

The heat sink is made of high-purity aluminium and has low thermal resistance. The integrated micro fan is also equipped with a special, highly durable MagFix® sleeve bearing designed for operating temperatures of up to 80°C.

Particularly noteworthy is the fact that the micro fan which is operated with a voltage of 5VDC, has a power input of only 0.3 W and a life expectancy of 400000 hours. The fan can also be equipped, if necessary, with a tacho output for monitoring the function. Both and the fan and the heat sink are available separately.

The cooling experts at SEPA EUROPE gladly assist you in choosing the required design.

14.05.2019 - Microfans of radial construction for sensor technology

Radial fans by SEPA EUROPE for new areas of application

The significance of air quality measurements whether in industry, households or in vehicles is constantly increasing. Manufacturers therefore, should equip their applications with the optimal sensor fan and in this respect SEPA EUROPE is exactly the right partner!

SEPA EUROPE has complemented its range of microfans with the radial fan HY20A with the dimensions of 20 x 20 x 6.3 mm. The air intake of the radial fan which is on one side is 2 l/min and with a sound pressure level of 5dB(A) at a distance of 1m, it is virtually inaudible.

As is the case with all microfans, the HY20A is equipped with the reliable Magfix sleeve bearing and has a service life of 400 000 h (MTBF) or 50 000 h (L10) at 40°C. The tachometer output constantly monitors the speed at which the fan is running.

The HY20A is also an interesting solution for the cooling of hot spots in embedded applications. This compact blower ensures that optimal use is made of limited installation space.
