More details on the Sanus CAFC01

Product Research


Overview: The Sanus CAFC01-B1 ultra-quiet fan helps to cool the equipment mounted in your A/V rack. Five 1.5" diameter fans are mounted to a single rack unit (1U) 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 6' DC power wire is included.

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

Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

does the fan blow air out (exhaust) or blow air in (intake)?
[ Paul  Aug 03, 2020 ]

air is intake - blows inward.
[ Andrew  Aug 04, 2020 ]
It is both... Let me explain! The rectangular fan if placed on the top mounting position is an exhaust fan. Take the same fan and put it in the bottom of the rack mounting position and it would draw air in from the floor. Sanus also makes rack mount fan units and those would draw air in from the front. The rack power supply (Sold separately) has both a thermostat and an ability to set the fans to be always on or thermostatically controlled. With Sanus you have total flexibility depending on how you plan And configure your rack.
