Noctua NF-A14 industrialPPC-24V-3000 Q100 IP67 PWM overview
Conceived for industrial heavy-duty applications that require enhanced cooling performance and advanced ingress protection, the NF-A14 industrialPPC (Protected Performance Cooling) is a ruggedised high-speed version of the award-winning retail model. The 24V Q100 variant uses Noctua’s AEC-Q100 qualified wide input range NE-FD4 motor driver IC in order to support 24V-based industrial and automotive applications. Its sophisticated inrush current suppression and extreme electrical robustness with extended burst and surge immunity allow it to operate safely in sensitive or hostile electronic environments. Thanks to the outstanding aerodynamic efficiency of the NF-A14 design and the use of a novel three-phase motor, the industrialPPC version provides superior airflow and pressure capacity while keeping noise and power consumption at a moderate level as against comparable high-speed fans. While its fibre-glass reinforced polyamide construction and certified water and dust protection make the NF-A14 industrialPPC suitable for operation in challenging surroundings, the renowned SSO2 bearing technology guarantees an MTBF of over 150,000hrs. Topped off with Noctua’s trusted reliability and 6-year manufacturer’s warranty, the NF-A14 industrialPPC is an ideal choice for highly demanding applications that require superior flow rates and ultimate dependability.
Award-winning NF-A14 design
Having received more than 100 awards and recommendations from the international press, Noctua's NF-A14 has become a proven premium choice for 140mm cooling needs. Its renowned efficiency has convinced tens of thousands of customers all over the world.
3000rpm industrialPPC version
Running twice as fast as the 1500rpm retail version, the NF-A14 industrialPPC-3000 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.
The industrialPPC 24V Q100 models use Noctua's NE-FD4 three-phase PWM motor driver IC. Supporting operating voltages from 12 to 30V, these models are ideal for 24V-based industrial applications and voltage- or PWM-based speed control.
Lower speed and noise levels in 12V PC environments
While the industrialPPC 24V model has been designed with 24V industrial applications in mind, it runs at a maximum speed of around 1800rpm in 12V PC environments and can be slowed down further via PWM, thus combining industrialPPC features and design with Noctua’s signature quietness.
NE-FD4 PWM IC with SCD
Supporting fully automatic PWM speed control, the fan uses Noctua’s custom-designed NE-FD4 PWM IC for 24V three-phase motors. The NE-FD4 is AEC-Q100 qualified and integrates Noctua's proprietary Smooth Commutation Drive (SCD) technology, which suppresses PWM switching noise and thus makes the fan quieter at lower speeds.
The 24V Q100 version’s NE-FD4 motor driver IC complies with the Automotive Electronics Council’s highly rigorous AEC-Q100 failure-mechanism-based stress test qualification for integrated circuits, which makes the fan ideal for use in automotive applications.
High electrical robustness
Meeting the AEC-Q100 standard’s stringent requirements for burst and surge protection, the 24V Q100 version’s high electrical robustness permits the fan to be used not only in automotive projects but also in other harsh environments with transients from electric motors and other inductive switching loads.
