This fan panel is designed for use with the Sanus CAPT01 low-voltage power supply. Two side-by-side ultra-quiet fans push air through your component rack, keeping your components cool. The thermostat kit that comes with the CAPT01 controls the fans, activating them when the temperature reaches 85 degrees, and turning them off when it drops below 75 degrees.

Pretty nice fan, still a little noisy

Written By EXT64, Virginia on Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I placed this fan in the top of my Sanus rack. I have the rack in the home theater room. This fan is quiet but it is still audible at 12V. I spliced a computer fan speed controller into this fan's power cable so that I can still have it controlled by the Sanus thermostat but I could control the operating speed. Once I dropped the voltage down to around 6-8V it was pretty much silent while still moving a decent bit of air.

Pros: Nice metal housing for the fans, fairly quiet, simple standard cabling and voltage, good airflow, nice and professional appearance like all of the Sanus gear.

Cons: Besides drilling out rivets no easy way to remove the fans when they inevitably die, cable plugs don't seem to be an exact match for the receptacles (in length) though they work perfectly fine, run at full speed (no fan speed control).

Overview: The Sanus CAFQ01-B1 ultra-quiet fan helps to cool the equipment mounted in your A/V rack. Two 4.5" diameter fans are mounted to a triple rack unit (3U) panel (for a standard 19" rack). The fan is powered by the Sanus CAPT01-B1 multi-volt power supply (not included), and is automatically activated by the thermostat kit (included with the power supply) when the interior of the rack exceeds a specified temperature. A 3' DC power wire is included.

Note: No rack mounting screws are included with the fan.
