Degree Controls Inc.: Air Velocity Sensor
January 10, 2011
The F600 board-level air velocity sensor is designed for continuous monitoring of airflow in small locations. The airflow sensor has a small form factor of 0.5 inches high by 0.25 inches wide and by 1 inch long, with a 0.1-inch pitch design. Costly electronic components are protected by the sensor by using the output to sound an alarm or to reduce system power if there is a loss of air velocity. User configurable outputs include pulse width modulation, tach, or alarm open drain output. With an air velocity range of 0.5 to 5 m/s (100-1,000 fpm) and an operating temperature range of 10 to 60°C, the sensor accepts a power supply of 12 vdc and has a ±45-degree airflow acceptance angle. A temperature output is also included. With internal factory calibration, the F600 sensors are fully interchangeable with one another. No field calibration is required.
