Selecting and documenting fans:
super-fast and extremely reliable

We’re driven by a desire to provide our customers with the right solution for every challenge. With our proven ebm-papst FanScout selection software, you are can quickly and reliably find the ideal product for your exact requirements from our extensive product range. Fans operated in parallel, FanGrids, are also included in the selection. Test it yourself: A demo version of FanScout is available for download. The software can be easily integrated into your device configuration program using the DLL interface.

We would be happy to supply you with product ranges tailored to the challenges you face. Just contact your ebm-papst representative. We will then narrow down the selection of products that are suitable for your application. This will help you to reach your goal even faster.

Precise data Better decisions 

Since our software is based on real measured values, the data you get with ebm-papst FanScout will always be absolutely reliable and, above all, extremely accurate. Not only is the performance of the individual fan components measured, but so is the fan as a complete system, in line with the wire-to-air principle (from the electrical hookup to the available air performance).
TÜV SÜD, a German technical service organization, also confirms that FanScout’s calculations are top class compared to real measurements. In a short time, not only can you find the best solution for your use case, you can also simulate various operating scenarios that take the fans’ operating points, operating times and space requirements into account to provide you with an estimate of annual energy consumption.
That’s why ebm-papst FanScout has shown that it is extremely user friendly.

To make the decision even easier for you, ebm-papst FanScout also takes life cycle costs into account: the purchase price and the operating and service costs.

The right fan has been found. Now the life cycle costs can be calculated.

For both centrifugal and axial fans, in the end a suitable and energy-efficient selection is what counts. That’s why it’s important to be able to select from all suitable fans. To ensure that the operating characteristics of the selected fan also apply in practice, the data used by ebm-papst FanScout are based on exact measured values – so you can be certain in your planning.

Correct FanGrid design

Picture full width FanGrids richtig auslegen

1. Operating parameters

In the past, FanGrids were often designed based on the operating point with the highest air flow (maximum operating point). However, since this is seldom reached, with ebm-papst FanScout you can specify up to five different operating states (operating points). For each operating point, you provide the operating time in hours per year.

FanScout- Landingpage

Other information includes the required static pressure increase of the fans and the overall system air flow, followed by the desired redundancy. The redundancy specifies how many fans can be switched off without falling below the required air flow. The remaining fans compensate for the difference by adjusting their speed.

Finally, you specify the amount of space available for installation of the fans.

2. Further information

ebm-papst FanScout also offers optional search parameters: the fan type and the number of fans installed.

3. Results list

Based on the parameters entered (operating points, desired level of redundancy, installation space, etc.), ebm-papst FanScout determines the most energy-efficient FanGrid combination. The list shows the performance and efficiency of annual energy consumption, sorted in ascending order. The most efficient combination is listed first and displayed in green.

FanScout- Landingpage

4. Characteristic curve

The fan combination selected in the results list is displayed as a characteristic curve at maximum modulation. The specified operating points are also displayed, with their size representing the proportion of operating time.

FanScout- Landingpage

5. Noise

For the selected fan combination, the sound level of the individual operating points is shown for a fan; you can specify whether at the intake or outlet side.

FanScout- Landingpage

6. Performance and efficiency

Both the power consumption and the static efficiency at each operating point are shown in the diagrams so you can quickly get the overall picture.

FanScout- Landingpage

7. Cost overview

The calculated operating points are supplemented by the operating time in years and the energy cost per kilowatt-hour, which are used to determine the basic operating costs. After you enter the costs for purchase, installation and service, the overall costs of the FanGrid over time are displayed: reliable information for better decisions.
