Looking for an “intelligent” Bidirectional Air Flow Sensor that measures airflow direction, velocity, & temperature in real-time?
Bidirectional Air Flow Sensor
DegreeC offers a series of bidirectional air velocity and air temperature sensors with both analog and digital communications outputs. The bidirectional sensor outputs both the velocity of the air, as well as airflow direction, in real-time. In addition, models like the B500 provide air temperature of the flow being measured. Designed with conformal coated electronics and sealed enclosure, these bi-directional airflow sensors are rugged and versatile and are suitable for combustion, curing, process control, cleanroom, and other demanding applications where air velocity, temperature and flow direction are needed. The analog output may be configured to voltage or mA styles, and can be augmented with simultaneous digital communication, either UART or I2C. The B500 series is configured to order, with a variety of velocity ranges, mechanical lengths, and output communication styles available in industry leading lead-times.
- Velocity Range: 0.15m/s to 20m/s (30 fpm to 4,000 fpm)
- Operating Temperature: 0°C to 60°C (32°F to 140°F)
- Supply Power Requirements: 4.5 – 29 VDC
- Digital Output: UART or I²C available for flow & temperature
- Alarm Output: Open drain, configurable trip point
Why is this Bidirectional Air Flow Sensor “intelligent?”
Start with the fact that air direction is just one of the measurements that can be made by these Bidirectional Air Flow Sensors. In addition, they can measure air velocity and temperature. But, the real versatility that comes from these “next generation” bidirectional air flow sensors is that they give you full control through integration with data acquisition instruments and powerful software. This provides a real-time view of data that can be logged and reported … complete with spreadsheets and a variety of graph styles.
