Arlington Heights, IL, USA---The Air Movement and Control Association International, Inc. ( AMCA International ) announced that AMCA STANDARD 205-10, "Energy Efficiency Classification for Fans," was approved by the AMCA International membership on February 19, 2010.
This standard defines the classification for all fan types designed to be driven by motors of nominal rating 125 W (1/6 hp) and above. The fans can range from the purpose built single fan to series produced fans manufactured in large quantities. This standard applies to the fan and not to the fan system. This standard excludes classification for circulating fans.
This standard may be used by legislative or regulatory bodies for defining the energy efficiency requirements of fans used in specific applications.
The following referenced documents shall be utilized for the application of this document:
ANSI/AMCA Standard 210-07 - Laboratory Methods of Testing Fans for Certified Aerodynamic Performance Ratings.
IEEE 112-2004 - Standard Test Procedure for Polyphase Induction Motors and Generators.
IEEE 114-2001 - Standard Test Procedure for Single Phase Induction Motors.
ISO 5801:2007 - Industrial Fans - Performance Testing Using Standardized Airways.
ISO/DIS 12759 - Fans - Efficiency Classification for Fans.
ISO 13348:2007 - Industrial Fans - Tolerances, Methods of Conversion and Technical Data Presentation.
ISO 13349:2008 - Industrial Fans - Vocabulary and Definitions of Categories.
AMCA Standard 205-10 is available at www.amca.org/store/default.aspx
