Package and Specifications

Phobya used its “Fear it” theme and artwork which follows suit with their signature logo. We received two models of the Bionic NB-eLoop fans for review. We have one that spins at 1600rpm and one at 1000rpm. You can see here we have one in red and one in black.

Going over to the rear of the package we find the detailed specifications for each model. This will help in choosing the right specifications you may be looking for.

Once out of the package, we will find the fans and a set of screws for mounting. The two models we received here only come in one color as far as we can tell. The Red is the 1600rpm model and black/smoked is the 1000rpm model.

Let’s take a look at the specifications for each Model NB-eLoop Fan.

Phobya NB-eLoop Bionic 1600rpm Specification: (Red fan)

Bionic fan chassis (new)

  • Aerodynamically optimized flow pattern
  • 4 resonance/interference absorbers (Deepsound Design)
  • Increased air intake area with diagonal design
  • Highly linear power output over the whole speed spectrum, air flow optimized
  • Fiber glass reinforced material concentrated frame made from PBT UL94V0 30%GF

NB-EKA 2 Drive (new)

  • Auto-restart functionality for reliable start-up
  • Integrated blockage and overload protection
  • Scalable NB-WideRange electronics
  • Low start-up voltage
  • RPM signal lead
  • AntiDust technology (completely dust-protected motor)

NB-NanoSLI 2 magnetic floating bearing (new)

  • Orientation-invariant lubrication and noise reduction, vertical and horizontal operation without increased noise emission
  • AntiDust technology (completely dust protected bearing)
  • Special lubrication with Nano technology for long lifespan and low noise emissions

  • Noise emission: 22,5 dB/A
  • MTBF (25°C) : 140 000 hrs.
  • Connector : 3 Pin Molex with rpm signal
  • Warranty: 3 years

Extent of delivery:

  • 1x Phobya NB-eLoop 1600rpm – Bionic Fan ( 120x120x25mm )
  • 4x Screw

Phobya NB-eLoop Bionic 1000rpm Specification: (Black/Smoked Fan)

Bionic fan blade rotor (new)
The unique design of the rotor eliminates the vortices between low and high pressure side of the fan blade tips. The tip vortices are broken up into smaller vortices and distributed evenly. Vortices on the trailing blade edge are reduced to a minimum by vorticity guides.
Result of all these features is reduced drag, significantly reducing aerodynamic noise and improving energy efficiency.
Dust repelling super-smooth surface, Material original Bayer Makrolon®.
