KYOTO, Japan – OMRON Corporation (TOKYO: 6645,US: OMRNY) will release a new MEMS flow sensor designed to optimize efficiency in fuel cell systems from April 2008. The D6F MEMS mass flow sensor is the latest addition to Omron's D6F series of flow sensors. It will be on display at the 4th International Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Expo, which runs from February 27 – 29 at Tokyo Big Site.
Key Product Features
1. High Accuracy
Measuring 1.55mm (H) x 1.55mm (W) x 0.4mm (D), Omron’s new sensor
incorporates the world’s smallest class of MEMS element to enable
precise measurement of even very low flow rates.
2. Quick-Connect Type
new sensor features a quick-connect structure instead of the
traditional screw-type connection. This simplifies the assembly process
and allows standardization of piping for reduced costs and improved
3. Outstanding Output Linearity
unique flow path technology exhibits excellent linearity of output,
which eliminates the need for linearity compensation and simplifies
calibration. This also improves flow measurement accuracy to ensure
4. Resin Construction
using resin instead of metal, Omron has reduced mass production unit
costs. In addition, this resin-based sensor offers a lighter
alternative than metal counterparts.
