Microprocessor-Equipped Sensor Detects Clogged Filters

The D6A filter sensor's integrated microprocessor runs complex algorithms that provide a temperature reference point to reveal clogged filters. The sensor operates from 0°C to 45°C with a supply voltage of 12 V dc ±10%. Its maximum current consumption is 60 mA, and its output voltage ranges from 0 to 5 V. The clogged filter sensor targets servers, high-end routers and network devices, and other applications that use a filter fan. The D6A's sensing capabilities ensure continued operation of expensive equipment. Available from stock, the sensor starts at $28 each in 1000-piece quantities.
