Calibrated and temperature-compensated mass-flow measurement for smart gas boilers
Test & Measurement
Sensirion's calibrated and temperature-compensated sensors and sensor
solutions ensure precise and reliable measurement of the air mass to a
combustion chamber. This expertise enables not only higher boiler efficiency
but also a significant increase in the modulation ratio, which, in turn,
enhances the comfort and lifetime of the boiler.
Due to their compact size and flexible modification options, Sensirion's
solutions for mass flow measurement can be installed in any boiler. In
addition, the proven sensors 'guarantee' a wide dynamic control range, the
elimination of zeropoint drift, outstanding repeatability and accuracy and
the option of certified intrinsic safety. Sensirion also offers sensor
solutions for the measurement of temperature and relative humidity, as well
as natural gas with gas quality compensation.
The sensor performance is based on the patented CMOSens Technology, in which
the sensor component and the evaluation
circuit are integrated on a single CMOS microchip. In conjunction with a
specially developed sensor packaging, the
result is a more cost-effective system with significantly higher precision
and repeatability, representing a quantum leap in
mass flow and differential pressure measurement, says the company.
