Sensirion Introduces Fast and Cost-Effective Evaluation Kit for Mass Flow Meters

Sensirion, the worldwide leading manufacturer of high-quality flow and environmental sensors, is launching a new evaluation kit. With the EK-F3x-CAP, expiratory and proximal sensors of the SFM3xxx platform can be tested quickly and easily. The evaluation kit works with both the disposable and reusable variants of the flow sensors.

CHICAGO (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 13, 2019 - Sensirion's EK-F3x-CAP evaluation kit offers a simple and cost-effective way to test sensors of the SFM3xxx platform. The set consists of a USB cable which connects directly to a PC and to the corresponding flow meters in the attached table. Using software available online (USB Sensor Viewer | Sensirion) the sensors can be quickly tested under real-life conditions without the need to program a microprocessor. The software shows the measurement data directly on the user’s computer screen. The data can then be exported into an Excel spreadsheet which can easily be saved and further processed.

The Sensirion SFM3xxx platform includes sensors for inspiratory, expiratory and proximal flow measurement, as well as gas mixing in ventilation and anesthesia applications. With this platform, Sensirion offers its customers the right sensor for all flow measurements and underscores its worldwide expertise in the field of medical ventilation. The reusable “AW” versions are autoclavable and washable, and therefore well-suited for expiratory flow measurement. The disposable “D” versions are a safe and cost-effective alternative to reprocessing.
