Max RPM's for a Wemo minifan 480?


Just wondering what the max rpms this fan can be run up to reliably. Can it handle 50,000 rpms? How does it compare to a DS-30 as far a performance and reliablity? Can anyone help? Thanks.

45000 max rpm state for the minifan according to Wemo website

Someone may have proven the minifan reliable for the next 10% needed to reach 50K, but that would be experimenting I think...

The DS are reported to handle the power/rpms better, especially the carbon unit - but at a price. You get what you pay for

Have a look at this nice comparison for more details on the three most popular "minifans":
