Portable Anemometer Simplifies Temperature and Air Velocity Measurement

Norwood, MA, December 1, 2004 - Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) has introduced the ATVS-NxT(TM) hot wire anemometer, a fully portable scanner that provides rapid and highly precise measurements of temperature and air velocity for thermally characterizing electronic packages. The ATVS-NxT(TM) scanner operates with an embedded PC, and includes an 8 GB hard drive, a CD/RW drive, and Ethernet connections allowing the scanner to be operated over an intranet or the Internet. The ATVS-NxT(TM) system features ATS' own StageVIEW-NxT(TM) software for data acquisition and reporting.

The ATVS-NxT(TM) hot wire anemometer scanner supports up to 32 sensors for simultaneous, single-point air velocity and temperature measurements in environments where single or multipoint measurements are required. The sensors are calibrated for both low (natural convection) and high velocity flow rates. Temperature measurement capability ranges from -30 to 150°C. Velocity measurements range from 0 to 51 m/s (10,000 ft/min). The complete portable system weighs 15 lbs. Starting price for the standard ATVS-NxT(TM) portable anemometer is $7,848. Customized features and special-purpose sensors are available from ATS.

More information on ATVS-NxT(TM) systems is available from the Advanced Thermal Solutions website,, or by calling 781-769-2800.
