Unit utilizes 2 temperature sensors, one on each side of a heater element, to determine heat distribution, providing accurate detection, regardless of flow direction. It has ability to display real time flow rate of any process and can function as a flow meter.
Original Press Release:
New SUNX Digital Air Flow Sensor with an Integrated Dual Color Display to Improve Productivity
New Providence, NJ - Panasonic Electric Works Corporation of America today announced the release of new digital air flow sensor, the FM-200 series under SUNX brand, which offers users greater usability and high performance.
The FM-200 series is a bi-directional digital flow sensor for use with air or Nitrogen gas. It offers high precision detection of 3% F.S and high speed response in an ultra small package, thanks to the utilizing of MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) technology. The series covers a wide range of flow rates and has a wide range of I/O options standard, such as dual discrete outputs, an analog voltage output, and an external input.
Dual Digital Display: The integrated two-color dual digital display offers quick and easy verification of the sensor's operation, including flow rate, direction, and output condition.
Bi-Directional Flow Detection: The unique sensor chip of the FM-200 allows for flow sensing in both directions. The unit utilizes two temperature sensors, one on each side of a heater element, to determine the heat distribution. This concept provides accurate detection, regardless of flow direction.
Flow Rate and Flow Meter Modes: The FM-200 series not only has the ability of displaying the real time flow rate of a process, but also has a mode that will allow the unit to function as a flow meter. This is great for applications where the customer would like monitor the amount of air used or lost in their process.
Comprehensive Lineup: The FM-200 series is available in three port sizes with a total of eight flow rate ranges, from 0.5l/min. through max.1000 l/min. The models of the FM-200 series also boast one of the smallest package sizes in its class, with the largest model (1000 l/min) being only W30 x H50 x D80mm in size.
The FM-200 is suitable for applications to control purge gas and air used on production lines, or to check seating of transparent objects or suction of objects on collection conveyors with low suction pressures.
The SUNX FM-200 series is immediately available from stock. Please contact Panasonic Electric Works Corp. of America and their authorized distributors.
