DC Brushless Fan-- 50x50x10mm

This is a smaller 50x50x10mm fan. The fan has a DC brushless motor, with an operating voltage of 5V, and is rated at 190mA. Keeping the temperature down in your project can often be a necessity, and this fan can definitely help.

Note: As some of you have noticed, the fans that we are receiving are slightly different from the older model. The new fan has the model number Y-Y50101-15B and is rated for 200mA. We're working on getting pictures updated and digging up a datasheet. The new fan, however, is nearly identical.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

    In the datasheet there are two models, ball bearing and sleeve bearing. Which one are you selling here? I'm interested since I'm planning to install it inside a fridge.

    Can this fan operate in both the directions?

    • Sorry so late, no, any fan I have ever seen only flows in one direction, you can't reverse the polarity and get it spinning in the other direction.

      You can just flip it around and it'll do the same.

    I was quite impressed when I first powered on of these on. Running off of a 5V supply theses things are very powerful. If you're looking for a small fan that can move a lot of air this is it!

    These fans are pretty solid. I've been running them at 12v for prototype development. I'm using them along with the mosfet power control kit. Very flexible combo for my project!

    Just received 2 of these, but it looks like they come from a different supplier and has different specs. Label is red, model is Y-Y50101-15B, label says it is 200mA. 4.7V isn't enough to start the fan, needs at least 5.0V. Is there an updated datasheet for the new fan?
