Mouser Electronics has recently started offering the FS1015 and FS3000 air flow sensor modules Renesas Electronics.
The vertical-mount FS1015 and the surface-mount FS3000 provide precision air flow monitoring for detecting system failures, measuring air handling, controlling fan speed, and more in HVAC systems, analytic gas-monitoring systems, data centers, and air quality systems.
The FS1015 and FS3000 sensors, now shipping from Mouser, use a series of MEMS thermocouples to provide high-sensitivity air monitoring. Both sensors measure direct local air at up to 15 meters per second, allowing system control to adjust quickly, providing closed-loop control while achieving maximum efficiency and cost savings.
The solid thermal isolation of the MEMS sensing element combined with a silicon-carbide film offers excellent abrasive wear resistance and long-term reliability.
The FS1015 comes in a 28.2 mm × 14.2 mm × 7.3 mm package with leads for vertical mounting and screw-secured side tabs. The FS3000 module is available in an 8.0 mm × 9.1 mm × 4.4 mm surface-mount package ideal for low-profile applications.
