Embedded air velocity sensors by Degree Controls provide airflow solutions for demanding laboratory, HVAC and electronics applications. The F-Series platform of non-directional air velocity and temperature sensors is robust and provides users with powerful versatility.

F-series embedded airflow sensors

The high-performance F-Series platform:

  • uses dual-sensing elements to measure air velocity and temperature simultaneously,
  • is rugged with sealed construction and conformal coated electronics, and
  • is configurable to meet your specific application requirements.

A variety of velocity ranges, power supply inputs, probe lengths, and output types are available, as well as remote head sensor styles.

Key differences between F300F400 and F500 air velocity and temperature sensors are:

Your choice of input power:

F3004.5 – 15 VDC supply voltage
F40019 – 29 VDC supply voltage
F50024 VAC/VDC supply voltage

Extended analog output options with the F500:

F300 & F4000-5V or 0-10V output
F5000-5V, 0-10V, 0-20mA or 4-20mA output

Note:  Output can be augmented with simultaneous digital communications.  

Different sensor length selections to accommodate insertion depths of 30mm (1.25”) to 245mm (9.6”):

F300Three selectable lengths
F400Four selectable lengths
F500Two selectable lengths

 Low temperature operating range with the F500:

F300 & F4000°C to 60°C (32°F to 140°F)
F500-10°C to 60°C (14°F to 140°F)

Note:  Please see F-Series datasheets at degreec.com for additional information.

F-Series Remote Head Options

F-Series remote head models are also available for applications where segregation of the sensing element and electronics is desirable, such as products involving high EMI sensitivity or extreme temperature, or those where the sensing area is too small for typical probe-style sensors.
