»   Board Mount Sensors

In order to measure and monitor airflow within dense electronic systems & enclosures, we have designed an array of in-situ air velocity sensors that can be directly soldered or socketed to your PCBA.  These sensors can manage air flow intake and exhaust disruptions, clogged filters, slot-to-slot imbalances, and provide monitoring of critical fans or components.  For complete thermal management, browse our board-mounted sensor product line.
