Superseding AMCA Publication 211-22, AMCA Publication 211-22 (Rev. 01-23) prescribes technical procedures for rating fans and axial impellers for air performance to be used in connection with the AMCA Certified Ratings Program (CRP).
AMCA Publication 211-22 (Rev. 01-23) coordinates the AMCA CRP with U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) requirements for large-diameter ceiling fans (LDCF). Changes were made to sections 9.11, “Rating method N: Large-diameter ceiling fans,” and 22, “Product Ratings Requirements for Large-Diameter Ceiling Fans.” Additionally, the title of Section 20 was changed.
Changes in AMCA Publication 211-22 (Rev. 01-23) include:
- The addition of the DOE definition of large-diameter ceiling fan.
- The addition to the list of rating requirements the number of available fan speeds, the capability of reverse flow, and, if applicable, whether fan-speed controls are separate from lighting controls.
- The allowance of conservative standby-power-consumption ratings.
- The addition of testing voltage requirements for LDCF regulated by the DOE and having polyphase electricity.
