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.

"There’s a need for flexible solutions, so people are trying to make the most of the equipment that they buy, and they want to have the equipment that’s able to be flexible in scale with what it is that they’re looking for," said Camille Sybert of Nordson Electronics Solutions. "We have customers asking about future capabilities that they might not be ready for right now, but they want to know that it’s something that can be easily integrated into their processes in the future, as they’re in a position to better be able to do so."
