Silicon Flow Sensor With Ultra-fast Response Time


The Silicon Flow Sensor (SFS) is IST AG's first flow sensor based on silicon technology and extends the IST AG flow portfolio. The SFS is made for gas flow and it is IST AG's fastest flow sensor with a response time < 5 ms.

It is operated according to the calorimetric principle and can therefore detect not only the flow velocity but also the flow direction.

The symmetrical design of the SFS flow sensor allows an easy interpretation and evaluation of the measurement signal. The sensor can be used in different gases. It is characterized by a high sensitivity, a very fast response time and an extremely low energy consumption.

IST AG offers the full range of cooperation, from support with the customer's system integration to pre-assembled, customer-specific partial solutions and a complete solution tailored to the customer's application.

The SFS01 is particularly suitable for low flow velocities up to 3.5 m/s (in gases). It shows very fast measurement results of the flow rate as well as the flow direction.

The Silicon Flow Sensor SFS01 offers three main characteristics:

Very fast response time <5 ms

Very low energy consumption

Easy system integration including temperature compensation

Well-adapted channel geometries allow the performance of the sensor to be optimally aligned to the desired application. The SFS01 flow sensor is ideally suited for space-limited applications but can also be easily upgraded to complete ready-to-use systems.

Suitable application areas for the SFS01 flow sensor are flow measurements in battery-operated / portable devices, air conditioning technology (HVAC), automation technology as well as process and control engineering.

AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May

The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.

In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.

The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.

Key elements of the online summit:

  • Covering key topics of the industries
  • Live 3 hour online summit
  • 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
  • Recorded product demos
  • Live audience questions
  • Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
  • Video panel sessions
  • Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
  • Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
  • After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365

Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
