PCB Air Velocity Sensor for Dense PCB and Electronics Enclosures
Board Mount Series Part 1:
Note: Board Mount Series Part 2 Airflow Measurement for Filter Clog Detection explains how to manage clogged filters, airflow intake, and exhaust disruptions with monitoring, alarms and control systems.
Airflow management using an air velocity sensor to provide real-time feedback can identify problem areas before damage occurs. Degree Controls’ board-mounted air velocity and temperature sensor platform with digital output is designed to measure complex, spatial airflow inside electronic or ducted systems.
Compact PCB Mount Air Flow Sensor in Vertical and Horizontal Profiles
The F660/F662 board-mount sensor from Degree Controls is the smallest form factor, vertical profile digital airflow sensor on the market. It uses high performance dual element sensing technology and can be soldered directly to a printed circuit board or plugged into a surface-mount socket for easy removal. Air velocity range and input voltage is configurable, and a choice of UART or I2C digital output simplifies integration to microprocessors.
The F660/F662 is ideal for 2RU chassis or computer mil-style chassis and cabinets. For applications where component height is even further restricted, our F661/F663 board mount sensor with horizontal flow profile, compatible with 1RU and blade server systems, is available.
PCB Board-Mount Reference Airflow Sensor
Contact Degree Controls to learn about our RFS300 digital board-mount sensor for even greater positioning flexibility. The RFS300 uses a reference design circuit that the client integrates onto their board creating an even smaller sensor footprint, (6mm x 6mm) and low power consumption.
