Big Ass Fans has introduced the Powerfoil X3.0 industrial ceiling fan, which includes SmartSense control technology for comfort and automatic energy savings. The new Powerfoil X3.0 produces 15% more airflow than the Powerfoil X2.0.
SmartSense is designed to eliminate the trial and error of finding the ideal air speed when temperatures change. 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°F (5.6°C). 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 can help reduce heating use and bills up to 30%.
SmartSense selects the most efficient and beneficial fan speed with minimal user input. Users select their comfort preferences during the initial setup, then SmartSense operates the Powerfoil X3.0 automatically. If the need arises, a manual mode is available at the touch of a button to allow users to adjust fan speed on the fly.
The Powerfoil X3.0 fan is available in diameters of 8 to 24 feet (2.4 to 7.3 meters).
