Fans are widely used in many industrial environments for ventilation, cooling and fume extraction purposes. Depending on the specific use, the mechanical configuration – axial, centrifugal and tangential flow – as well as the size and shape of the blades must be carefully selected. Likewise, the type of motor – a universal, brushed or brushless DC motor or a single- or three-phase induction motor – and the associated motor drive is selected to achieve the overall performance required by the system.
Our offer includes an extensive range of 8-bit STM8 and 32-bit STM32 microcontrollers, a wide range of power discretes including IGBTs and Power MOSFETs as well as integrated power modules (IPM) and monolithic motor drivers to help build scalable, high-efficiency power stages with power ranging from a few watts up to tens of kilowatts.
Additionally, ST provides an extensive portfolio of high-performance operational amplifiers and comparators, switching and linear regulators and MEMS inertial and environmental sensors – to enable predictive maintenance – and a comprehensive range of software and hardware evaluation tools to help reduce development time and cost.
