Since the initial release of our F660 and F661 board mount sensors in 2017, we have received numerous requests for a 5V package. The F660 and F661 have answered the need for both low and tall profile sensors with the smallest possible footprint, and for very high volume applications – a reference circuit design where we supply only the sensor head, and a 4mm x 4mm x 0.9mm programmed chip. We also introduced in situ calibration methods utilizing an I2C interface for the best possible accuracy. The F660/F661 were major design and performance upgrades from our original products introduced almost a decade ago, but were limited to a 12-18V input requirement, which was not ideal for some of our customers.
On July 1st we will begin shipping a new 5V version of the F660 and F661 sensors, which maintain the same air velocity and temperature performance standards that you have come to rely on. Stay tuned for more updates, and be sure to follow us on LinkedIn to stay up to date on all the latest board mount platform news from DegreeC.
Choose the right sensor for the job
With three form factors to choose from, the board-mount sensors can fit into tight pitch blade servers (F661), and electronics assemblies with taller flow plenums (F660). The RFS300 is a reference design, where the client installs the drive circuitry directly onto their card, and procures the sensor element and programmed microprocessor from DegreeC. DegreeC routinely assists clients with their board layout and schematic updates.
