The product comes with a drill template to aid installation, creating an extraction hole and then fitting a cover to keep the overall cabinet enclosure looking smart. With an operating low-noise specification of 22.5dB is, the FT80-Q fan is well-suited to low noise environments
Measuring 80mm, the fan is also small enough to be neatly ensconced ‘just about anywhere’ in a cabinet.
A thermal sensor accessory can be plugged in to the temperature sensor socket which is set to start operating an 40 degrees Celsius, and will reset at 30 degrees Celsius. The sensor accessory is supplied with an acrylic adhesive pad to be positioned in an area where it can detect the ambient temperature of the equipment being cooled.
