Flexible Candlestick Sensor Measures Temperature and Air Velocity

Norwood, MA, December 6, 2005 - Advanced Thermal Solutions has introduced the MS 1000-CS-WC, a flexible, robust candlestick-design sensor that measures both temperature and air velocity for characterizing thermal conditions in electronic systems.

The candlestick MS 1000-CS-WC sensor is narrow and low profile to minimize disturbance of heat flow in the test domain. Its flexible, plastic-sleeved stem facilitates installation and repositioning during the testing process. Multiple sensors can be easily installed to thoroughly map a system's thermal and airflow conditions. The use of a single sensor to measure both temperature and velocity eliminates errors that can occur when airflow is non-isothermal.

MS 1000-CS-WC sensors are calibrated for low (natural convection) and high velocity flows. They are capable of temperature measurements ranging from -30 to +150°C ±1C. Velocity measurements range from 0 to 51 m/s (10,000 ft/min) ±2%. The sensor's base is 9.5 mm in diameter. Three different heights are available: 9, 12, and 20 mm.

Pricing for the MS 1000-CS-WC candlestick sensor starts at $150.00 in volume quantities. More information is available on the Advanced Thermal Solutions website,, or by calling 1-781-769-2800.
