RAMFAN, the world leading brand in portable ventilation systems for dangerous environments, unveiled the new EX50Li, the most advanced fan ever made for Fire/Rescue applications–making cordless autonomy available to first responders for the first time ever.
The EX50Li roll-cage frame, the durable design found across RAMFAN’s Fire/Rescue line up, is easy to carry and easy to set up for a variety of ventilation scenarios–PPV, Smoke Ejection, Confined Space Rescue. The first in the industry 40V 6.0 Ah swappable Li-Ion battery packs deliver 45 minute of runtime while taking less than 30 seconds to swap out when batteries are depleted. The combination of the advanced E2 Intellisense Controller with new Brushless motor design delivers the high efficiency needed for extended runtime on battery power together with the IP66 waterproofing necessary for tough and wet frontline operations.
The safety features of the new E2 Intellisense Controller include smart battery management to protect the batteries from drain during storage, protect against overcharging, undercharging, and extreme temperatures that can damage battery cells.
”Swappable battery packs have quickly become standard throughout many departments worldwide for rescue tools, TICs, lighting, and radios.” said Zach Allen, Euramco’s VP of Sales & Operations. ”Until now, there has not been an electric fan available that is not either corded AC or with fixed batteries that require the fan to be out of service for 5-10 hours after each use which, for obvious reasons, is a non-starter for first responders when equipment readiness is required at all times.”
The EX50Li brings advanced technology to Fire/Rescue while being simple to use and multifunction in nature. It’s unibody roll-cage design has a center of gravity that allows it to be set up for PPV operations, hung from a door bar as a smoke ejector, laid on its back for vault clearing or attic venting, or attached with a duct for confined space ops–all while cordless, CO-free operation.
The EX50Li begins shipping in March 2017, and will be shown at the Euramco booth #3669 at FDIC 2017 in Indianapolis.
