Air Velocity Sensor
The Air Velocity Sensor is designed for systems that generate heat, and a steady flow of air is necessary to dissipate this in order to maintain system reliability and safety
This device is meant to monitor the status and the amount of the flowing air.

Example of Use
One example of how the AKCP Air Velocity Transmitter can be utilized in a data centre where vented server cabinets are used to sequester the hot return air from the equipment in the server racks is described below.
The AKCP Air Velocity Transmitters were installed using the special mounting brackets in the return air duct of each cabinet to measure the relative air movement through each cabinet and to be alerted when airflow through any cabinet became disproportionate to the thermal load in that cabinet. This ensures that only the specific amount of air needed to cool the equipment in that server rack is allowed through the cabinet.
The AKCP Air Velocity Transmitter combined with the AKCP sensorProbe8 base unit provides an affordable solution that scales well if future expansion is required needing additional cabinets.
In todays advanced energy-efficient facilities where energy consumption is carefully monitored and target PUE’s need to be strictly adhered to and controlled, the AKCP Air Velocity Transmitters installed in these cooling systems combined with our sensorProbe8 unit provides the perfect solution by very carefully maintaining an appropriate airflow through each cabinet.
