PROCOOL SXT480 (2U) Temp Controlled Rack Fan

Silent Operation

With a noise level of only 12 dBA at low speed and 20 dBA at top speed, the SXT280 is one of the quietest 2U rack-mount fan models available.
The low noise makes this fan suitable for noise sensitive applications from home AV to professional studios.

Temperature controlled Variable Speed

1200-2400 RPM
Each fan has a temperature sensor that regulates the fan speeds independently.
When the sensor detects heat above 77°F the fan speed will begin to increase. The fan will reach full speed at 104°F.
The sensor should be located on or near the heat source for optimal performance.


56-128 CFM
As temperature and speed increase the airflow increases to provide optimum cooling for most racks.

Available in both intake and exhaust versions.
The Intake model SXT480 blows air into the rack.
The Exhaust model SXT480-E pulls air from the rack.

SLAVE Option

The SLAVE fan (model SXT2280-SLAVE) comes with an interconnect cable in place of the power supply.
The interconnect cable allows you to connect any procool rack fan to a Master fan with temperature controller.

Quietest Fan Available - 12-20 dBA
Medium Airflow - 56-128 CFM

Operating Instructions

Care and Maintenance

To maintain optimal performance, keep the fans clean. Canned air works well. If the fans are used outdoors or in a dusty environment is recommended to clean the fan blades as needed to keep clean.

Blade Removal

For cleaning and maintenance, the blade prop can be removed.
Grasp the blade prop and pull straight out of the fan body. Inspect the shaft and lubricate if needed. Any oil will work; light grease works best. Clean blade as needed with a dry cloth. Soap and water can be used if needed, but should be thoroughly rinsed and dried before use. Reinstall the blade; when properly installed the blade will snap into place.


The fan will not start:

1. Is the light on the power switch on? If Yes, skip to #3.
2. Check the power connections. The power supply has a green led indicator, it should be on. If it is not check the power source. If not lit or flashing, it would indicate power supply failure or no power source power.
3. Check the fan blades to make sure they are fully seated in the housing. Press on the center of the blade and push in. If it is not seated you can hear it snap into place.
4. Turn the fan blade by hand to see if they are stuck. They should be free moving. If this starts the fan it is likely the fans need maintenance.

The fan is making noise:

1. Check for anything that could be rubbing against the fan blade.
2. Make sure the fan blades are clean. Dirty fan blades can cause a rattling noise.
3. Check the blade prop shaft for lubrication. (See step #3 above)

If the above steps do not solve the problem, contact our friendly customer service for assistance.
