Mass flow sensor products customisable

12 March 2008

Omron Electronic Components Business - Europe (OCB-E) is now offering to customise its D6F MEMS mass flow sensor products to suit individual customer requirements in terms of flow rate and non-corrosive gas type. The new customised sensor service is being presented at Sensor and Test in Nuremberg in May 2008.

Omron can provide mass flow sensors suitable to measure any flow rate from 1mm/s to 40 m/s or 1 LPM to 50 LPM of most non-corrosive gasses. The customisation service is subject to a minimum order size of around 100 sensors. Omron’s announcement follows the appointment of an engineer from its Kurayoshi factory to the European customer engineering team based in Munich.

Omron’s D6F flow sensors measure gas velocity and mass flow rate using a proprietary 3D MEMS structure to give outstanding performance in terms of resolution and repeatability, even at very low flow rates. The tiny MEMS flow chip uses changes in the temperature distribution around its central heating element to accurately detect the tiniest air flow. Omron has a range of over 20 different D6F gas and air flow sensor models, to detect the speed and mass flows of non corrosive gases. The sensors offer a repeatability of up to+/- 0.1% and an accuracy of up to +/-3% of full scale deflection on the most accurate parts. Omron’s D6F-V , D6F-W and D6F-P units are aimed specifically at detecting clogged air intake filters in ventilation and cooling systems, and feature a patent pending Dust Segregation System.
