Embedded Sensing Provides Benefits

High performance electronics are increasingly being developed with built-in air velocity sensing to improve reliability, warn the user of a use-case or environmental issues, and to allow the OEM to track airflow starvation events that could mitigate product failure liabilities. DegreeC has developed cost effective and small form factor approaches to bring a multitude of advantages to the marketplace.

The embedded air velocity sensing platform from Degree Controls allows you to measure air velocity, temperature, and humidity with best-in-class sensor accuracy. Our embedded airflow sensors are available in a multitude of robust packages including corrosion-resistant probes, remote head transducers, and board mount sensors. They are configurable with choices for air velocity range, input voltage, and output communication style. Air velocity and temperature are measured simultaneously, and bi-directional or directional airflow sensing options are available as well.

Embedded Airflow Sensors with Analog and/or Digital Output

The F-Series sensors are designed with both analog and digital outputs (UART and I2C) for your ease of use and maximum configurability in the field. What’s more, Degree Controls’ embedded sensors are compatible with all major microcontrollers and development boards including Arduino and Raspberry Pi. Simply make the connections from your F-Series sensor to your microcontroller, power your development board and sensor, and begin work on your industrial solution, data collection or automation control project. See our application notes page for Setup and Connection of an Arduino board to a DegreeC F-Series Air Velocity and Air Temperature Sensor with Digital Output.

Our embedded platform of airflow sensors sets the standard for flexible design integration and control. We have a sensor to monitor your critical environment–contact Degree Controls today to make your airflow sensor selection.

Try the newest addition to our F-Series, the F200 with digital-only interface, for new product designs and airflow process control applications.
