Airflow Monitor Integrates into Orion Fans
Airflow sensor can retrofit to Orion fans.
Dallas, TX — Orion Fans has added a cost-effective airflow monitoring system. The AFM Series provides a simple, economical alternative for indicating airflow in AC or DC fan/blower applications. The AFM module operates an optical LED or audible alarm when airflow falls below 8.2 ft/s due to fan filter clogs or foreign materials coming in contact with the fan blade.

Field retrofittable for AC or DC fan/blower applications, the AFM airflow sensor protects components like power supplies, PoE midspans, and displays in sensitive equipment including servers, telecom switches, medical equipment and kiosks.

The module can be purchased already assembled to a grill, or sold separately to mount on any fan or blower grill. The plastic finger guard fits fan size configurations of 80, 92 and 120mm.

Placed on the output or input side of the fan, the AFM module mounts perpendicular to airflow with a clip, clamp or by integration into a fan guard. It measures positive airflow by mounting in the front of the fan or negative airflow when mounting to the intake side of the fan. It provides a long operating life of more than 100,000 cycles, is IP20-rated and NEMA 1 certified to protect against dust and indirect splashing.

The small size AFM Series measures only 34 x 17.5 x 7.5mm (1.34 x 0.69 x 0.3-in.). The RoHS-compliant AFM Series has an operating temperature range of -20 to +50°C.
