The advanced SAF Series Airflow Switch provides early detection and protection from overheating in mainframe computers and peripherals, large power supplies; HVAC applications, medical diagnostic equipment, and other complex electronic systems requiring forced air cooling.
Its design is based on a heated thermistor which monitors the airstream and detects loss of reduction of airflow due to fan failure, clogged screens or filters and obstruction of air inlets/outlets. The thermistor temperature and, therefore, its resistance is affected by changes in air velocity. The SAF thermistor is part of a sensing bridge which compares its own resistance against a reference circuit and determines the air velocity at which the device must trigger the output.
