SANYO DENKI Develops 140 × 140 × 51 mm Splash Proof Fan
With industry-leading service life, airflow, and static pressure

January 10, 2018

SANYO DENKI CO., LTD. has developed and launched the San Ace 140W 9WL type 140 × 140 × 51 mm Splash Proof Fan. This fan features the longest service life as well as the highest airflow and static pressure in the industry.(1)
It is suitable for cooling communications equipment, solar inverters, rapid EV charging stations, and digital signage, and the like.
This fan also comes standardly equipped with the PWM control function to externally control the fan speed.
This is the industry's first IP68-rated splash proof fan in this size.(1)

San Ace 140L


1. Long Service Life

This fan achieves an expected life as long as 100,000 hours, which is 1.7 times that of our current model(2).

2. High Airflow and High Static Pressure

This fan delivers a maximum airflow of 9.0 m3/min and maximum static pressure of 655 Pa.(3)
Compared with the current model(2), the maximum airflow has been increased to 1.1 times and maximum static pressure has been increased to 2.7 times.

3. Water and Dust Resistance

Superior IP68-rated(4) water and dust protection ensures stable fan operation even in harsh environments.

4. High Energy Efficiency and Low Noise

Power consumption has been reduced by 35%(5) compared with the current model(2).
The PWM control function enables the external control of fan speed, contributing to the lower noise and higher energy efficiency of devices.

(1) Based on our own research as of January 10, 2018, among equally-sized axial DC fans on the market.

(2) Current model: San Ace 140W 9WB type 140 × 140 × 51 mm Splash Proof Fan (model no. 9WB14☐☐S501).

(3) The values are for 9WL14☐☐P5G001 models, where ☐’s are wildcard characters.

(4) Based on the testing method standardized by International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in IEC 60529.

(5) The values are for 9WL14☐☐P5S001 models, where ☐’s are wildcard characters.
