NovaSensor, a division of Amphenol Advanced Sensors, has introduced the FMA Series of Filtration Air Restriction (FAR) Sensors. This series of sensors accurately measure the pressure loss across a variety of air filtration devices utilizing high accuracy NPA piezo-resistive technology in a low-profile form factor that is easy to install and maintenance-free.

Available in multiple positive or vacuum pressure ranges, mating with an integrated AMPSEAL 16 (3-way) electrical connector and 1/8-27 NPT female pressure connection port.

FMA Features Include:
  • Supply Voltage: 5VDC
  • Linear Output: 0.5V to 4.5V (ratio-metric)
  • Diagnostic Features (Bridge Connection Checks, Bridge Short Detection, Power Loss Detection)
  • Temperature-compensated
  • Sealed AMP Electrical Connector
  • Multiple Pressure Ranges (5 inches of water to 5 psi) Available (Vacuum and Pressure)
  • Fast Response Time
  • REACH & RoHS Compliant
FMA Applications Include:
  • Engine air filtration systems
  • Cabin pressure
  • HVAC pressure
  • Exhaust pressure
  • Industrial filters
