Big Ass Fans creates a stir at Modex

By DC Velocity Staff

Big Ass Fans introduced the Powerfoil X3.0 large industrial ceiling fan at Modex. The new fan, which includes SmartSense control technology, provides effortless comfort and automatic energy savings. The company says that the fan produces 15 percent more airflow than the Powerfoil X2.0 while maintaining durability and reliability.

Featuring summer and winter modes as well as dual-air temperature sensors, SmartSense matches the speed of Powerfoil X3.0 to seasonal conditions. As the temperature rises, the fan automatically speeds up, providing a cooling effect of up to 10 degrees F (5.6 degrees C) that will keep workers comfortable and productive even on the hottest summer days. Conversely in fall and winter, SmartSense automatically slows the fan to push down rising warm air from a facility's heater without creating a draft. The Powerfoil X3.0 equalizes the air temperature in the space and reduces heating use and bills up to 30 percent. SmartSense maximizes investment by selecting the most efficient and beneficial fan speed with minimal user input. The Powerfoil X3.0 fan is available in diameters of 8 to 24 feet.
