A number of Cooltron DC fans are qualified for use under extreme conditions, such as water exposure. These fans come with various protection ratings and are protected against dust and moisture. An extra coating of protection against water can be featured on many of the dual ball bearing fans from Cooltron. An IP 55 rating indicates water jet protection, protection from showers is shown by an IP 43 rating, while splash protection is indicated by IP 44. These fans are also resistant to corrosion from salt water spray. Because of these protections, the qualified DC fans are ideal for use in applications such as wind power devices, field equipment, and outdoor security cameras.
