New battery-powered fan

  • FANERGY high-performance fan now also with lithium-ion battery
  • At least 60 minutes of self-sustaining operation at full speed
  • Simple and safe operation with stepless nozzle adjustment

Rosenbauer has expanded its FANERGY series with a practical cordless device. The new high-performance FANERGY B16 fan is powered by an environmentally friendly and very efficient electric motor that causes no exhaust emissions, and the noise level at the point of use is also significantly minimized. Two lithium-ion batteries supply the 1.25 kW synchronous motor from 40 cells each and provide a carrier capacity of 2 x 11.6 amp-hours. This allows operating times of at least 60 minutes at full speed before replacing the batteries with the quick-change system or connecting an external power source. The high-performance fan can be operated uninterrupted and permanently when connected with the power cord.

Ergonomic handling
With its compact dimensions, the new FANERGY B16 fits into any equipment room and - at just under 25 kilograms - is lightweight and can easily be carried and set up by one person. The deliberately simple and sturdy steel tube frame has good haptic qualities and ensures perfect handling of the device both when removing it from the vehicle and when carrying it to the place of use or via a staircase. 

Intuitive operation
The high-performance fan is operated via the uniform Rosenbauer Logic Control System (LCS) to prevent mistakes from happening even in stressful situations. It consists of only one button for switching on, one for switching off, and a digital potentiometer to regulate the engine speed and thus the air outlet quantity. Boost mode can be activated for short-term increases in power requirements, which is permanently available during mains operation.

Optimal attack position
Like all FANERGY high-performance fans, the new battery-powered B16 fan has a ventilation unit that can be adjusted continuously between + 20 degrees and -20 degrees. The generous tilt angle provides maximum flexibility and efficiency and provides an optimal, preset ventilation position for most firefighting situations. With a +20 degree inclination angle, the airflow can enter a building unhindered and with little loss when placed on entrance steps or pedestals, while the -20 degree setting is particularly well-suited for removing smoke from stairs going up (basements) or light wells.

Tactical ventilation
The special design of the FANERGY fan unit (all-in-one airflow technology) ensures a very even and powerful air flow with an optimized suction behavior and flow pattern. In addition, it combines different fan technologies and concepts such as overpressure or turbo ventilation in one device. FANERGY high-performance fans can therefore be used very flexibly and for any kind of tactical ventilation. The new battery-powered fan is also immediately ready for use, which can accelerate rescue and extinguishing measures and significantly increase the safety of all involved.
