PC104p-COOL Fan board with 2 positions
"Zero Slot Fans"™ available
Shown with fan and connector options - mix and match connectors, fan orientations, and power source as needed
Three versions are available to meet your requirements; PC104-COOL, PC104p-COOL. PCI-104-COOL. The difference between the versions is which connectors are installed. Multiple "COOL cards" can be installed per stack. All bus and power signals are passed through.
The fans can be mounted to blow in the standard direction or reversed. The Reverse direction is from the primary component side toward the secondary component side to provide cooling to the the board under the fan card and throughout the stack. The Forward direction will blow to the front and cool the rear side of the card above the "COOL" card in the stack.
The "Zero Slot Fans"™ are designed for low intrustion on either side of the PCB: .105" on the rear for the "F" model and .08" for the "R" model. The low profile fans used have 4.7 CFM using 12V. The fans draw 50 mA each for a maximum of 100 mA on the 12V rail with a completely filled board.
Standard profile fans can be used in place of the low profile ones to provide more air flow per fan. Approximately 8 CFM per fan. The current is higher as well. The standard profile fans may require a spacers within the stack.
