Advanced Thermal Solutions' (ATS) base-and-stem Candlestick sensor is designed to simultaneously measure air temperature and velocity when characterizing thermal conditions inside electronic systems. Courtesy: Advanced Thermal SolutionsAdvanced Thermal Solutions’ (ATS) base-and-stem Candlestick sensor is designed to simultaneously measure air temperature and velocity for thermal conditions inside electronic systems. The Candlestick sensor is available in heights of 9, 12 and 20 mm. These features help minimize the disturbance of airborne heat flow in the test domain for more precise measurements. The use of a single sensor to measure both temperature and velocity is designed to eliminate errors that can occur when airflow is non-isothermal. Multiple Candlestick sensors can be used to map an entire system’s thermal and airflow conditions. Their all-plastic design prevents electronic shorting. Candlestick sensors are calibrated for low and high velocity flows. They are capable of temperature measurements ranging from -20 to 120 C, Velocity measurements range from 0 to 50 m/s depending on the sensor model. The base diameter for all Candlestick sensor models is 9.5 mm. The stem diameter is 0.5mm and bead diameter is 1.1 mm. Double-sided adhesive is available for long term mounting. Wire lengths are available up to 30 m.
