ATS: Small, Flexible Candlestick Sensor Measures Air Temperature and Velocity


Reading time ( words)

Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) now provides the base-and-stem Candlestick sensor for simultaneously measuring air temperature and velocity when characterizing thermal conditions inside electronic systems.

The Candlestick sensor is narrow and low profile, in heights of 9, 12 and 20mm. These features minimize the disturbance of airborne heat flow in the test domain for more precise measurements.

The use of a single sensor to measure both temperature and velocity eliminates errors that can occur when airflow is non-isothermal. Multiple Candlestick sensors can be used to thoroughly map an entire system’s thermal and airflow conditions. The sensors’ robust nature allows for continuous repositioning and reading. Their all plastic design prevents electronic shorting.

Candlestick sensors are calibrated for low (natural convection) and high velocity flows. They are capable of temperature measurements ranging from -20° to +120°C, ±1°C. Velocity measurements range from 0 to 50m/s (0 to 10,000ft/min), ±2%, depending on the particular model of sensor.

The base diameter for all Candlestick sensor models is 9.5mm. The stem diameter is 0.5mm and bead diameter is 1.1mm. Double-sided adhesive is available for long term mounting. Wire lengths are available up to 30 meters.

3D Optical Inspection Provides ‘Eyes’ for Process Improvements in Industry 4.0

06/21/2019 | Jenny Yuh, Koh Young Technology, and Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
Automated 3D solder paste inspection (SPI) and 3D automated optical inspection (AOI) systems have become an integral part of the printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) process because they help ensure high-quality production. As today’s board complexity is increasing, inspection technology has become even more critical.

Smart Factory Transitions Are Attainable—With a Plan

06/04/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In a white paper, Zac Elliott, technical marketing engineer at Mentor, a Siemens company, outlines a structured organization for smart factory implementation. While there can be one set of challenges to overcome when building a smart factory on a greenfield site, firms restricted to pre-existing facilities face a different set of hurdles. In this interview, Elliott discusses how things have proceeded since the paper was published, and talks about strategies for smaller firms and brownfield companies.
