Noctua NF F12 Industrial PPC 120x120x25mm PWM Fan IP52 Rated
Conceived for industrial heavy duty applications that require enhanced cooling performance and advanced ingress protection, the NF-F12 industrialPPC (Protected Performance Cooling) is a ruggedised high-speed version of the award-winning retail model.
Thanks to the outstanding aerodynamic efficiency of the NF-F12 design and the use of a novel three-phase motor, the industrialPPC version provides superior airflow and pressure capacity while keeping noise levels and power consumption moderate as against comparable high-speed fans. While its fibre-glass reinforced polyamide construction and certified water and dust protection make the NF-F12 industrialPPC suitable for operation in challenging environments, the renowned SSO2 bearing technology guarantees an MTBF of over 150.000hrs.
Topped off with Noctuas trusted reliability and 6 years manufacturers warranty, the NF-F12 industrialPPC is an ideal choice for highly demanding applications that require superior flow rates and ultimate dependability.
Award-winning NF-F12 Design
Having received more than 150 awards and recommendations from the international press, Noctuas NF-F12 has become a proven premium choice for 120mm cooling needs. Its renowned efficiency has convinced tens of thousands of customers all over the world.
Industrial PPC 3000 RPM
Running twice as fast as the 1500rpm retail version, the NF-F12 industrialPPC-3000 PWM provides extreme airflow and pressure performance. Combined with the industrialPPC series robust polyamide construction and advanced protection features, this makes the fan ideal for challenging industrial applications.
Three Phase Motor Design
While most axial fans use single-phase motors with 4 slots, Noctuas industrialPPC fans feature a three-phase design with 6 slots, which provides smoother transitions between the slots and thus allows for even higher running smoothness, further reduced vibrations and unprecedented energy efficiency.
Class Leading Energy Efficiency
While the standard NF-F12 is one of the most energy efficient 1500rpm 120mm fans on the market, the industrialPPC versions three-phase motor provides a further 10% reduction in power consumption when compared at 2000rpm.
Fibre Glass Reinforced Polyamide Construction
Both the impeller and the frame of Noctuas industrialPPC fans are made entirely from fibre-glass reinforced polyamide. This material can withstand temperatures up to 140°C and makes the fans even more robust and break-proof than Noctuas standard fibre-glass reinforced PBT fans.
Water and Dust Protection Certified IP52
Thanks to a special varnish coating that covers the motor and PCB, the NF-F12 industrialPPC complies with the ingress protection rating IP52. This means that it is not only highly dust resistant but also withstands dripping water equivalent to 3mm rainfall per minute.
Focused Flow™ Frame
Designed for pressure demanding applications such as heatsinks and radiators, the Focused Flow™ frame features eleven stator guide vanes that straighten, channel and focus the airflow, which allows the NF-F12 to rival the performance of conventional fans running at much faster speeds.
Varying Angular Distance and Vortex Control Notches
The NF-F12s stator guide vanes are set out in Varying Angular Distance and feature Vortex-Control Notches. Both measures help to spread the noise emission over a broader frequency spectrum and thus make the fans sound pattern more agreeable to the human ear.
Custom designed for the new Focused Flow™ frame and to work in tandem with the eleven stator guide vanes, the NF-F12s seven blade Heptaperf™ impeller has been carefully optimised to achieve a perfect balance between power and quietness.
Noctuas AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frames feature integrated anti-vibration pads as well as Noctuas proprietary Stepped Inlet Design and Inner Surface Microstructures, both of which further refine the fans performance/noise efficiency.
Stepped Inlet Design
Noctuas Stepped Inlet Design adds turbulence to the influx in order to facilitate the transition from laminar flow to turbulent flow, which reduces tonal intake noise, improves flow attachment and increases suction capacity, especially in space restricted environments.
Inner Surface Microstructures
With the tips of the fan blades ploughing through the boundary layer created by the Inner Surface Microstructures, flow separation from the suction side of the blades is significantly suppressed, which results in reduced blade passing noise and improved airflow and pressure efficiency.
Integrated Anti-Vibration Pads
Integrated Anti-Vibration Pads made from extra-soft silicone minimise the transmission of minute vibrations while maintaining full compatibility with all standard mounting systems and fan clips used on heatsinks.
The NF-F12 industrialPPC features the further optimised second generation of Noctuas renowned, time-tested SSO bearing. With SSO2, the rear magnet is placed closer to the axis to provide even better stabilisation, precision and durability.
Metal Bearing Shell
In order to guarantee the highest possible degree of manufacturing precision, minimum tolerance and excellent long-term stability, the NF-F12 industrialPPC sports a CNC milled bearing shell made entirely from brass.
PWM IC with SCD
Supporting fully automatic PWM speed control, the NF-F12 industrialPPC uses Noctuas custom designed NE-FD2 PWM IC for three-phase motors. The NE-FD2 integrates Noctuas proprietary Smooth Commutation Drive (SCD) technology, which suppresses PWM switching noises and thus makes the fan quieter at lower speeds.
