Air velocity sensors deliver digital I2C output
POSIFZ TECHNOLOGIES PAV3000 series high-performance air velocity sensors with digital I2C output and a surface-mount footprint provide thermal management and filter monitoring in space-constrained locations. Unlike thermistor-based solutions, device has a MEMS sensor core that is minimally affected by ambient temperature changes and which provides instant real-time feedback on proper air flow at critical locations. Air velocity data perfectly complements temperature information to provide the best insight into thermal efficiency. Device helps identify areas that require unusually high air flow to maintain stable temperatures, layouts for rack enclosures with air cooling — such as those found in data centres — can be modified to reduce cooling demands for increased energy savings.
