Wher to get electronic supplies in Sydney
« on: January 28, 2020, 11:05:57 pm »
Hi
I need to get some 140x140 DC fans today in Sydney.

Anyone have a suggestion on someone who has this in stock?

Regards,
Kenneth

I see some listed with RS Components in 12v, 24v and 48v.  Don't know if they have them in stock, but if they do, you can pick them up over the counter from Smithfield.

A bit on the pricey side for my taste, though.

What quantity?

140mm fans are quite common in computers, so computer shops should have them.

120mm is more common for electronics, so that’s when Jaycar / Altronics type stores are normally better, although the pickings are slim so don’t be too pedantic.

If you can wait a week, element14, rs, mouser, Digi-Key

240VAC, 48VDC, 24VDC or 12VDC?

For 240VAC: Bunnings (website is useless! Has tiny fraction of stock) or an electrician's wholesaler that doesn't mind members of the public buying one-offs, eg Arncliffe Babylon in Tempe (again useless website, visit in person or call them).

For 48VDC, 24VDC and 12VDC: Wagner is a bit pricey for fans but their "Ceradyne" units claim 300,000 hour lifetimes.  Not as quiet as computer fans, the last one I picked up had coil clicks when rotating even at slow speeds.

For 12VDC: Any computer store, eg the MSY chain.  Staticice is a gateway to other stores so it might help you.  Don't buy a cheap one if you want it to last.
