AC Fans are cooling devices that are designed to produce a flow of air out of one side or end of the unit. The devices in this family are designed to be used with an alternating current. The characteristics are size/dimension, voltage rated, width, air flow, bearing type, and fan type. The size is rectangular from 103.4mm L x 90mm H to 1100mm L x 175mm H, round ranging from 108mm diameter to 925mm diameter, and square from 60mm L x 60mm H to 1070mm L to 1070mm H.
Voltage - Rated: Typically represented by a range, this indicates the low and high voltage limits which one can expect standard operation. Voltages outside this range may damage the device and other system components.
Size/Dimension: The physical dimensions of the device. Typically length by height, or diameter. Diameters in parentheses indicate diameter of the of the fan inside the housing.
Width: Typically this indicates the measurement from the front of the housing to the back of the housing.
Air Flow: Characterizes the air volume flow rate a fan can generate. Usually measured under conditions of rated voltage and zero pressure difference between a device’s inlet and outlet.
Static Pressure: Characterizes the maximum air pressure differential a fan can generate at nominal input voltage and zero flow.
Bearing Type: Indicates the technology used to provide mechanical support for a fan’s moving parts.
Fan Type: Describes a fan’s mechanical form factor.
Features: These are different capabilities or properties of the device such as an alarm or auto restart.
Noise: Characterizes a device’s acoustic emission levels, as measured under manufacturer-defined test conditions.
Power (Watts): Typically this rating indicates the nominal amount of power you would expect the device to consume during normal operation.
RPM: Characterizes the nominal speed at which a device rotates when rated voltage is applied. Actual speed will vary with application conditions.
Termination: Selection of termination style used to connect the device to a system, such as pin, quick connect, or wire leads.
Ingress Protection: IP (Ingress Protection) ratings such as (IP20, IP65, IP67, etc.) define how likely water and dirt will get into the system. The first number represents dirt and solid contaminants while the second represents water and liquids.

Operating Temperature: Recommended operating temperature, typically given in a range or as a maximum. Exceeding these temperatures may affect performance or damage the device and other system components.
Approval Agency: An indication that the product meets the minimum safety standards of an approving agency. These agencies are either government entities or private third-party labs that protect consumer safety.
Weight: Indicates the overall weight of the part.
