Board Mount Air Velocity Sensors for Reduced Energy Consumption

December 7, 2023 | Posted By: Degree Controls Inc.

Do you want to see how the air is flowing through your building?

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, HVAC systems are responsible for 44% of commercial building use.1 By placing Degree Controls board mount air velocity and temperature sensors throughout your facility, in areas where air flows, you can receive the measurement data needed to optimize HVAC performance and reduce the energy demand of your building, all without compromising occupant comfort.

An energy solutions provider has installed our F660/F662 board mount air velocity sensors throughout the ductwork in an office building and integrated them into the BMS (Building Management System). This network of air velocity sensors and equipment allows landlords and facility managers to receive airflow feedback when dampers open or close, control end devices such as fans and actuators, and determine air changes per hour for a given space. They can see how the air is flowing through the building.

Degree Controls compact, air velocity sensors measure velocity and temperature in real time. F66x sensors mount to your printed circuit board via a socket or direct solder and communicate measurement data across an I2C or UART bus. Tailor-made for OEMs, these through-hole, board mount velocity sensors offer a variety of choices for velocity range from 0.15 to 20m/s (30 to 4,000 fpm), physical form factor, and supply voltage.

Integrate the F66x air velocity sensors into your commercial building automation, reduce energy demand, and achieve proper environmental control.
