Electronic fan drives
Our range of electric fan drives not only increase engine cooling but also improve air conditioning cooling at idle. The electronically controlled viscous drive regulates the fan speed based on the signal from the engine management.
This cooling component provides a good and reliable solution for cooling diesel engines with split coolers.
The benefits of an electric fan drive
- Reduced fan noise
- Improved efficiency
- Better controlled engine cooling

FD10-E Fan Drive
Limiting top end fan speed is the key to reducing fan noise. Precise fan speed control not only enables reduced fan noise but also allows engineers to maintain a tight tolerance on engine temperature, enabling high efficiency. This is made possible through the system integration of the fan drive and subsequent control of fan speed or “required cooling” via the engine management.
FD30-E Fan Drive
Once fan speed control is not linked to air temperature and working retrospectively or reactively, new predictive cooling methodologies are opened up to cooling systems engineers. Why wait to slowly increase the much needed fan speed when the retarder is used, instead the system can increase fan speed moderately in anticipation for the additional heat rejection.
FD50-E Fan Drive
Almost all vehicle systems have multiple heat exchangers, each has its own optimum temperature and flow requirements. Accommodating more complex systems with an air sensing fan drive can lead to compromises in fan speed. Complex systems are where electronically controlled Viscous Drives give you more design choices, cooling strategies and diagnostic capabilities.
