Safety Precautions for All Axial Fans

warning_fig1

Do not touch the blades. Doing so may result in injury.
Always mount the optional Finger Guard when there is any possibility that a person may touch the fan blade.

warning_fig2

Do not use the Box Fan with the Finger Guard removed.

Make sure that power is turned OFF before performing any action that requires touching the blades, such as inspections or filter replacement.

warning_fig3
caution_fig1

Do not hold the Fan by its power lines, or pull the power lines with excessive force. Injury may occasionally occur if the Fan falls.

caution_fig2

Do no insert objects into the rotating parts of the Fan. Fan failure may occasionally result in property damage or minor injury.

caution_fig3

Do not allow the Fan to be subjected to shock, such as falling, otherwise the service life and performance characteristics of the Fan will be adversely affected. Precision-type ball bearings are used to hold the shaft of the Fan.

caution_fig4

Do not use the Fan outside the rated temperature range or above the rated voltage. The resulting increase in coil temperature or blade deformation may occasionally cause burns or other minor injuries. Do not touch the motor section during operation or immediately after stopping operation.

caution_fig5

Do not use the Fan in locations subject to flammable or explosive gases. Minor injury may occasionally occur due to explosion.

caution_fig6

Do not attempt to disassemble, repair, or modify the Fan. Property damage or minor injury may occasionally occur due to electric shock, fire, or Fan failure.

caution_fig7

Unexpected operation of the Fan after, for example, the Fan has stopped due to contact failure or due to the operation of overheating protection (thermal protection), may result in minor injury.
Make sure that the power is turned OFF before performing any action that requires touching the blades, such as inspections.

caution_fig8

Do not wire the power lines of the Fan in series with those of other Fans or devices. Wire the devices in parallel. Fan failure may occasionally result in property damage or minor injury.

caution_fig9
caution_fig10

Be sure to secure the Fan with the mounting bolts. Not doing so may result in injury due to the Fan falling. Use M4 bolts to mount the Fan. Recommended tightening torque: 0.44 Nm.

caution_fig11

Provide measures, such as circuit-breaker fuses, on the power supply lines of devices that are using Axial Fans. Short-circuiting of the Fan may adversely affect other devices.

Precautions for Safe Use

Do not install the Fan in the following locations.

Locations subject directly to water (except for water-resistant Fans)

Locations subject directly to oil

Locations subject directly to vibration or shock

Locations subject to strong static electricity or harmonics

Locations subject to excessive dust or metallic powder

Locations subject to direct sunlight

Locations subject to condensation or icing

Locations subject to corrosive gases (particularly sulfide and ammonia gases)
