Embedded Airflow Sensors & Switches
Embedded airflow sensors set a new standard in configurability & versatile design-in.
Measure air velocity, temperature, and humidity with best-in-class sensor accuracy, maximum versatility, and ease of use. Our embedded airflow sensors are designed with a wide range of configuration options and both analog and digital outputs. Probe style, board mount, and remote head package styles are included, as well as options for directional or bi-directional airflow sensing.
Airflow sensors measure the amount of airflow. Sensors provide continuous dynamic measurement and output measured values to a datalogging or control system.
Airflow switches detect when airflow exceeds, or drops below, a given trip point. Switches provide a binary signal, triggering an alarm, or serving as a safety interlock or control device. When the airflow recovery point is reached, a switch moves out of its alarm state and reverts back to its normal state.
Probe Style Sensors
F-Series Probe StyleRobust transducer, choice of velocity range, supply voltage, length & analog/digital communication
FH-Series Probe Style with HumidityHumidity sensing built in to our robust air speed & temperature transducers, configured to order
B-Series Probe Style and Bi-DirectionalAirflow direction, air speed & temperature are output in real time, will detect flow reversals
Board MountIn-situ air velocity sensors that can be directly soldered or socketed to your PCBA
Remote Sensor HeadRemote head sensors are remote from sensor electronics for compact, high temperature, or EMI sensitive locations
Application SpecificIncludes sidewall sensors for monitoring face velocity of cabinets as well as retrofit sensors
Degree Controls sensors are automatically temperature compensated. A description of air velocity and temperature compensation can be found in application note ANS-SD17-A Velocity Compensation.
Speed Up Your Prototyping?
