The IndustrialPPC lineups are 2000 and 3000RPM versions of the NF-F12 and NF-A14 series fans, made with fibre-glass reinforced polyamide construction which gives water and dust protection.
Noctua also introduced redux versions of the NF series fans: 3 pin and 4 pin PWM versions of: NF-P14, NF-S12B, NF-B9 and NF-R8. Overall, there are 13 redux models with RPMs ranging between 700RPM to 1700RPM.
As far as the accessory kit is concerned, the Austria based premium cooling company introduced anti-vibration mounts (NA-SAV2), Low-Noise Adaptors (NA-SRC7 & NA-SRC10), extension cables (NA-SEC1 & NA-SEC2) or y-cables (NA-SYC1 & NA-SYC2) kits for its redux and IndustrialPPC series fan lineups.
