Air Velocity Sensor Air Velocity Sensor for Laminar Flow Monitoring
The EE680 air velocity sensor by E+E Elektronik is used to monitor the laminar flow in cleanrooms or on safety workbenches. The sensor precisely measures the air velocity up to 2 m/s (400 ft/min) and simultaneously also the temperature.
The EE680 meets the requirements of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and is therefore ideally suited for the pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and microelectronics industries, states the company. The flow sensing element used in the new sensor is based on the hot film anemometer principle and enables simultaneous measurement of air velocity and temperature.
It provides accurate values from as low as 0.1 m/s (20 ft/min) and offers excellent long-term stability and low angular dependence, adds the firm. The special sensor coating makes the thin film sensing element highly resistant to H2O2 sterilization and other aggressive cleaning agents.
