Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS)
has unveiled a flexible, robust candlestick sensor, the MS 1000-CS-WC
that can simultaneously measure both temperature and air velocity for
characterizing thermal conditions in electronic systems.
The MS 1000-CS-WC candlestick-shaped sensor is narrow and
low profile to minimize disturbance of heat flow in the test domain. Its
flexible, plastic-sleeved stem eases installation and repositioning
during the testing process. It has a plastic base to eliminate any
potential shorting issues.
Multiple sensors are 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 candlestick sensors are calibrated for both low (natural
convection) and high velocity flows. They are capable of temperature
measurements ranging from -30 to +150°C ±1°C. Velocity measurements
range from 0 to 50 m/s (10,000 ft/min) ±2%. The sensor's stem is just
0.5 mm in diameter; its base diameter is 9.5 mm. Three different heights
are available: 9, 12, and 20 mm.
Prices for MS 1000-CS-WC candlestick sensors start at $180.00.
