New differential pressure sensor featuring MEMS mass flow technology
Published: 19 July 2013 - Michelle Winny
A new type of MEMS flow sensor with I2C digital output has been developed by Omron Electronics and is now available from Mouser Electronics.
The device integrates MEMS mass flow technology, with a redesigned internal flow path that produces a high velocity/high impedance sensor with differential pressure output. As the D6F-PH sensor is resistant to bypass tube length variation, it is ideal for field-installed HVAC damper controls where tube lengths are often inconsistent.
The series features linearisation and temperature compensation as well as highly accurate readings of ± 3 percent. Three models are available for specific pressure ranges, making them ideal for HVAC and medical applications.
