The SFS01 is particularly suitable for low flow velocities up to 3.5 m/s (in gases). It shows very fast measurement results of the flow rate as well as the flow direction.
The Silicon Flow Sensor SFS01 offers three main characteristics:
- Very fast response time <5 ms
- Very low energy consumption
- Easy system integration including temperature compensation
Well-adapted channel geometries allow the performance of the sensor to be optimally aligned to the desired application. The SFS01 flow sensor is ideally suited for space-limited applications, but can also be easily upgraded to complete ready-to-use systems.
Suitable application areas for the SFS01 flow sensor are flow measurements in battery-operated / portable devices, air conditioning technology (HVAC), automation technology as well as process and control engineering.
For easy evaluation of the SFS01 gas flow sensor, IST AG offers SFS01 EvaKit. It has both analog and digital output (I2C) and allows a fast and flexible evaluation of the SFS01 sensor. The I2C output includes both raw values and calibrated flow values from 0 to +- 200 sccm.
