  • Nitrogen filled and hermetically sealed to prevent contaminants for zero maintenance

Patented Airfoil System

  • Patented airfoil system includes eight airfoils and winglets that set the world standard for airflow
  • Unique aerodynamic design eliminates turbulent airflow at the airfoil tips

Functional Platform
Allows integration of lights, security cameras, speakers, security mirrors and just about anything else you can imagine

Touchscreen Controls
Installation just got even easier. Just mount the included digital, variable-speed wall controller to a standard junction box with a Cat5 cable and you’re up and running. A resistive-touchscreen makes it easy to turn your fan on or off, change speed, and set password protection.

Hub System

  • Patent-pending hub system includes hub, airfoil retainers and hub clips that offer tough and reliable performance
  • Machine-cut precision components offer uniform load distribution to promote overall longevity and durability

Fire Control Panel Integration
Standard, power-on shutdown fire relay included for seamless fire-control panel integration.

Onboard VFD Controls

  • Onboard VFD controls are pre-wired to the motor, requiring only a single electrical run from the breaker panel to the fan
  • All fans tested at full speed prior to shipping to ensure trouble-free installation
  • Minimal distance between the motor and VFD controller eliminates EMI/RFI interference
  • Simple integration into building automation systems using Modbus, analog outputs or other communication protocols
  • Fully sealed polycarbonate enclosure provides maximum durability and corrosion resistance while preventing excessive heat buildup for extended service life
  • IP55-rated to stand up to the toughest industrial environments

Control Options
Be the master of your domain. Powerfoil®X3.0 has several control options available—check them out!

  • Easily control Powerfoil X3.0 with the included resistive touchscreen wall control.
  • Integrate Powerfoil X3.0 into your facility’s fire suppression system and keep employees safer.
  • The optional SmartSense™ automatically adjusts your fan’s speed based on temperature changes and seasonal conditions.
  • Add BAFWorks™ to group and control multiple fans and Big Ass Lights from a single easy-to-use touchscreen display.
  • Integrate Powerfoil X3.0 into your building automation system for automatic centralized control of all your building’s systems.

Year-round Energy Savings
Overhead Big Ass Fans work with your HVAC to provide significant energy savings.

  • In summer, the fans’ cooling effect means the A/C can be set several degrees higher.
  • In winter, fans push the heat down from the ceiling, so your heater runs less, leading to savings as high as 30 percent.

Unrivaled Warranties

  • Industry-leading full 15-year mechanical and 7-year electrical warranty comes standard with PFX3. Optional extension to electrical warranty is available.
  • Big Ass Fans handles all warranties without redirecting you to component manufacturers. We make it, we sell it, we install it and we guarantee it.

SmartSense is an automated system with three user modes: Winter, Summer and Manual.

  • Winter Mode: Automatically adjusts speed to minimize temperature differential between the floor and ceiling
  • Summer Mode: Increases fan speed as the floor-level temperature rises
  • Manual Mode: Takes the system off autopilot and gives the user full control of fan operation
  • Standard SmartSense control system automatically adjusts for 24/7 comfort.
