Compared to its predecessor, the SFM4100, the SFM4300 features improved sensitivity and is extremely precise when measuring mass flow, even at low flow rates. The SFM4300 is small and very pressure-resistant, measures mass flows of up to 20 slm (air, O2 and N2O) and is available with various mechanical connections. The sensor unit, which was developed for integration into anesthesia devices among other applications, has an I²C interface and provides a fully calibrated and temperature-compensated output signal.
“The SFM4300’s performance characteristics make it the ideal solution for controlling gas mixtures in the medtech sector,” said product manager Dr. Daniel Träutlein. According to Dr. Träutlein, the sensor will primarily be used in anesthesia devices and is usually integrated directly into the device.
