Kyoto, Japan Omron Electronics has introduced a cyclone-type MEMS flow sensor that features the company's Dust Segregation System (DSS), which enables it to detect minute flow rates with high sensitivity even in dusty environments, according to the company. This makes the D6F-P sensor suitable for flow rate control in air conditioners in homes and offices.
Omron has also reduced the D6F-P sensor's footprint by 50% compared to previous models (D6F-01A1) by using a small MEMS flow sensor element. In addition, the sensor offers bi-directional flow sensing, compared to previously available uni-directional models, for use in applications such as sensing air conditioner intake and exhaust. The sensor may also be used in measuring devices, medical products and semiconductor equipment.
Omron will exhibit the D6F-P MEMS flow sensor at the CEATEC JAPAN 2007 Exhibition, October 2-6, 2007.
