Liquid Flow Sensor SLF3x
Sensirion’s Next Generation Liquid Flow Sensor for Life Science and Analytical Instruments
Sensirion presents its latest liquid flow sensor, the SLF3S-1300F, at the Electronica and COMPAMED 2018 trade fairs. By combining Sensirion’s excellent 20-year track record in low and lowest flow rate sensing with a radically optimized mechanical design, the SLF3S-1300F takes the well-established functionality to the next level in price-performance ratio. The sensor provides maximum safety, stability and long-term reliability for a wide range of applications, including the fields of diagnostics, analytical instruments and life sciences.
The SLF3S-1300F liquid flow sensor is based on Sensirion’s proven CMOSens® Technology and optimizes costs by simplifying the design without sacrificing the easy fluidic, electrical and mechanical connections. The straight and unobstructed flow channel has no moving parts; inert wetted materials provide outstanding chemical resistance and excellent media compatibility. In measuring flow rates up to 40 ml/min bi-directionally, the sensor allows monitoring the entire system operation and detecting common failure modes.
The SLF3S-1300F enables applications in the fields of diagnostics, analytical instruments and life sciences to reach unparalleled fluid control, system reliability and thus new heights in performance and end-user satisfaction. Its compact form factor and cost-effective design permit system designs with one or more sensors that were previously unfeasible.
Samples for testing of the SLF3S-1300F are now available. A plug and play connection of the sensor to a PC is established with the help of a USB cable, connection accessories and a Sensirion software. Please contact Sensirion for further information at infosensirioncom.
