Posifa Mass Flow Sensors

Posifa Mass Flow Sensors

Our new line of mass flow sensors from Posifa MIcroSystems offer innovative and low cost solutions based on thermal flow measurement. We are also offering a vacuum sensor also based on thermal conductivit.

PAV1000 Series Air Velocity Sensor

PAV1000 Series Air Velocity Sensor

The PAV1000 was designed as an economical high-performance air velocity sensor for thermal management & HVAC systems. Unlike thermistor-based solutions, the Posifa MEMS sensor core is minimally affected by ambient temperature changes and provides instant real-time feedback on air velocity speeds. The PAV1000 features Posifa's third-generation thermal flow die, benefiting from the latest innovations in microfabrication.

PMF2000 Series Mass Flow Sensor

PMF2000 Series Mass Flow Sensor

The PMF2000 Series of mass airflow sensors incorporate the latest MEMS and microelectronics innovations. The sensor die uses a pair of thermopiles to detect changes in temperature gradient caused by mass flow, delivering ultra-low noise-to-signal, and unsurpassed repeatability. The "solid-state" thermal isolation on the sensor die eliminates the need for surface cavities or fragile membranes, used in competing solutions, making the sensor resistant to clogging and pressure shock. The sensor's internal signal conditioning circuitry leverages an off-the-shelf microcontroller, providing proven reliability and low cost.
