The Open Compute Project NIC 3.0 standard simplifies the installation of network interface cards in servers such that any OCP NIC 3.0 card works in any OCP NIC 3.0 server. The standard includes details for the thermal test fixtures which test the cooling capability of OCP NIC 3.0 cards in measured airflow. Degree Controls has the purpose-built airflow sensors that are to be located on the thermal test fixture PCBs, next to the OCP NIC 3.0 connectors, to measure local inlet velocity to OCP NIC 3.0 cards for hot aisle cooling.
The UAS1000 EF (Electronics Focused) sensor is part of DegreeC’s UAS1000 line of precise, easy-placement air velocity and temperature sensors. With the convenience of USB connectivity, airflow sensors connect directly to a °C Port multi-channel data acquisition instrument or a PC. You can plug and play up to 36 sensors with a °C Port3600, or connect multiple °C Ports together to obtain up to 200 data points. For smaller-scale applications, our °C Port1200 provides 12 sensor channels.
The compact EF sensor head uses a thin, flat cable that exits the sensor body at a right-angle, providing maximum positioning flexibility in printed circuit board applications. Air velocity and air temperature are measured simultaneously, and the UAS1000 EF provides real-time feedback, identifying changes in airflow as they occur. UAS1000 EF sensors are capable of measuring velocity with ± 3% accuracy.
