Akasa Announces its New OTTO IP68-Rated Cooling Fans
Mike Sanders / 3 months ago
Akasa has announced the newest additions to their line-up of fans, the OTTO series of IP68 rated 120 mm case fans! The OTTO fans take their name from the swift, swimming otters, with the sleek, water-resistant fan blades producing a high airflow to help with removing heat and dust from a computer system.
The fans use an auto-industry ergonomic design to help smooth out bumps and vibrations that the fans will endure – the patented anti-vibration structure provides a perfect cushion between the mechanical fan blades and the reinforced fiberglass polymer frame. With an IP-68 classification, the OTTO is practically made for heavy-duty and industrial applications, easily able to sustain the harsher conditions in these environments. The removable frame is ideal for the maintenance and ease of cleaning of the computer system, allowing the lifespan to be extended with proper care.
Akasa OTTO IP68-Rated Cooling Fans
The OTTO series features a three-phase motor located within the fan housing, which provides smoother shifts between the electromagnetic slots, lowering vibrations in the fan and increasing its efficiency and longevity. The patented anti-vibration structure along with the included tool-free mounting pins can only mean the most silent operation from a fan with virtually no audible vibrations with Akasa’s OTTO series!
Akasa’s OTTO SC12 has a Sickle-flow blade design, which produces a finely-tuned P-Q curve for optimising static pressure. This allows more airflow in concentrated spaces, perfect for radiators found in AIO liquid cooling and tower heatsink cooling. Dust and dirt will be unable to settle within these heatsinks, which improves their efficiency and maintenance time.
Akasa’s OTTO SF12 has an S-Flow design, which produces better results when put inside a PC case. The P-Q curve is more optimised for airflow, pushing more air through the blades makes it perfect for either an intake or exhaust fan for a PC case. This maximises the performance of the fans and ensures a healthy airflow within the system without compromising performance.
