Air-Velocity Transducers

Jan. 12, 2006
FMA-900 air-velocity transducers incorporate both velocity and temperature sensors to measure air velocity in standard feet/min.

The sensors are glass-coated-platinum resistance detectors. The circuit heats the velocity sensor to a constant temperature differential above ambient temperature, and measures the cooling effect of the airflow, generating high accuracy and excellent low-viscosity sensitivity. Linear-analog output of the transducers is 0 to 5 Vdc or 4 to 20 mA for flows to 10,000 sfpm.
