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, and it 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.
