Axial Compact Fans

ebm-papst compact axial fans are suitable for high air performance with medium pressure increase. The air flows through the fan blades in parallel with the axis of rotation. ebm-papst can supply a wide range of AC and DC fans: from 25 to 280 mm with an extremely shallow design thanks to space-saving integration of the motor.

Voltage: 5–75 VDC, 11–440 VAC
Air flow rate: up to 1,220 m3/h
Power consumption: 0.1–275 W
Applications: up to 1,500 Pa


Centrifugal Compact Fans

Centrifugal compact fans from ebm-papst are the supreme high-pressure specialists in centrifugal design, featuring 90° air deflection and aerodynamically optimized impellers. Ideal for use in extremely compact 1U and 2U rack-mount servers. Come in many sizes and configuration levels.

Voltage: 6-72 VDC, 103-264 VAC
Air flow rate: up to 1600 m3/h
Power consumption: 1-190 W
Applications: up to 5,200 Pa

Diagonal Compact Fans

At first glance, ebm-papst’s  diagonal compact fans differ only slightly from axial fans. The air is drawn in axially, but the outflow is diagonal. With diagonals fans, the conical shape of the impeller and housing results in greater compression of the intake air. The outstanding feature of this type of fan as compared to axial fans of the same size and offering similar performance is a far lower operating noise level at high pressures. They are particularly suitable for applications involving intensive cooling with a high component concentration.

Voltage: 9-72 VDC
Air flow rate: up to 1,100 m3/h
Power consumption: 19-360 W
Applications: up to 1,500 Pa

Ideal for frequency converters, welding machines, solar inverters, IT or telecommunications applications. 

Our new compact fans may purr like a kitten, but they really roar into action when it comes to cooling. This is why we call them S-Panther. The combination of highly efficient GreenTech EC motors and a new aeroacoustic design achieves a significant increase in efficiency and lowers noise levels by up to 9 dB(A).

With dimensions of 172 x 51 mm, the 6300 N (S-Panther) fan offers vastly improved performance at a number of operating points thanks to a new impeller with innovative winglets, a turbulator and a new strut design. It also runs much more quietly than its predecessor the 6300 (S-Force). This new product range can be divided into two categories. The first category includes high-end solutions with high speeds and high air flow. The second category offers versions with an optimized price, suitable for applications where lower speeds are sufficient. The second category will be launched at a later date, which is why details about the models in this group will be announced separately. The 6300 N (S-Panther) replaces the 6200 N in the product portfolio and is an addition to the existing product range.
