Custom Fan Speed Control – Telecom Cooling Application

Telecom Cooling Redesign Project using 48V 4-Wire Fans
The challenge of this telecom cooling application was to maintain maximum fan speed control performance over an input voltage range of -33 to -72 VDC. Dual “boost” regulators were designed to ensure that the fans could maintain full speed capability when the supply voltage dropped below 48V. Dual passive filters were added to meet EMI regulatory requirements. Fan speed control based on temperature was implemented using a PWM control algorithm.
CRI’s ISO 9001:2008 registered electronic design and manufacturing facilities have the capability to provide complete custom fan speed control design for telecom cooling applications from prototype to production.
