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, selecting the right type of motor – a universal, brushed or brushless DC motor or a single- or three-phase induction motor – and associated motor drive is crucial 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, Intelligent Power Modules (IPM - SLLIMM™) and plastic power module (ACEPACK™), as well STSPIN monolithic motor drivers to help build scalable, high-efficiency power stages ranging from a few watts 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, Machine Learning Inertial Measurement Units – to enable remote sensing (i.e. for closed loop control, as well as Condition Monitoring / Predictive Maintenance) – and a comprehensive range of software and hardware evaluation tools to help reduce development time and cost.
