Electronic fan clutches
Suitable for: trucks and buses
In the case of using an electronically-controlled clutch, control is carried out directly via sensors, the values of which are processed by a regulator, which sends a control current to the integrated solenoid.
With the help of a relay, the integrated valve is opened and the silicone oil contained in the reservoir can flow into the working chamber, whereby the rotational speed of the fan increases. An additional speed sensor closes the control loop when required. This optimum regulation results in a reduction of both noise and fuel consumption.
Failure of the fan clutch can arise due to, for instance, damage caused by external influences, dirt or to poor or improper maintenance.
In addition to electronic fan clutches, DT® Spare Parts offers all standard clutches with bi-metal elements, fans and fan hubs.
