Computex: Noctua Display Industrial Fans And They Are Black!
Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
At Computex Noctua have been showing off something quite different, that is Noctua Industrial fans. Typically we’ve seen Noctua cater for both the enthusiast market and the enterprise market. On the enthusiast side we have a whole selection of fans and CPU coolers like the NF-A15 PWM and NH-D14 and then on the enterprise side we have products like the NH-U12DO A3 and the NH-U9DX i4. Yet these enterprise products from Noctua look very much like the consumer products but with some marginal tweaks. Now Noctua are taking another step forward with their Industrial fans which are purpose built industrial products.
Noctua’s new industrial fans will come in 120mm and 140mm sizes and feature 2000+ RPM designed for heavy duty industrial applications and professional uses. They are constructed from rugged fibre-glass reinforced polyamid and have IP52 class water and dust protection. Noctua are also offering up to IP66 and UL certification on request. Noctua have told us these fans will be available in Q1 of 2014. I myself find this design looks pretty awesome, maybe on the consumer side this is the start of black fans from Noctua? Who knows.
