New Transducer Measures Differential Pressure to Assure Air Flow Integrity

Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc., ATS, ( now provides a test instrument for measuring differential pressure in enclosures where air flow integrity is critical to proper performance. As the demand for more energy efficient cooling grows, the need for measuring the pressure at each source of heat generation will follow.

Norwood, MA, July 16, 2010 --( The PTM-1000™ Pressure Transducer Module is a four-channel test instrument used for measuring differential pressure in electronics enclosures. For thermal characterization applications, the PTM-1000™ is capable of measuring pressure drop across channels in circuit cards and assemblies; differential pressure across Pitot tubes and orifice plates; intake-to-exhaust pressure drop in forced convection cooling systems; and pressure drop across in-line filters. The instrument’s user-friendly stagePRESSURE™ software application software provides easy data viewing and logging. Four channels of pressure data can be saved as a function of elapsed time for study of raw data history.

The PTM-1000™ module measures a wide range of pressures, starting at 0-0.15 PSI. It can be used for precise measurements in telecommunications, networking, embedded computing and other high performance electronics applications. Data accuracy is within 1% of the full scale. The pressure transducer is capable of measuring pressure at temperatures from -40° to 120°C with data accuracy within 1% of full scale.
