(DE) MINIATURISIERTER DIFFERENZDRUCK-DURCHFLUSSSENSOR
(EN) MINIATURE DIFFERENTIAL PRESSURE FLOW SENSOR
(FR) DÉBITMÈTRE MINIATURE À PRESSION DIFFÉRENTIELLE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a fluid flow velocity sensor using a differential pressure measurement and comprising a stack (200) having a tip (230) pointing in a first direction, said stack comprising first and second plates (210A-210B) arranged in parallel one another along the first direction; and a pressure-sensitive diaphragm (220) arranged between the first and second plates (210A-210B) along the first direction, said pressure-sensitive diaphragm (220) being spaced apart from the first plate (210A) by a first cavity and from the second plate (210B) by a second cavity, wherein the first cavity is entirely sealed, except at the tip (230) of the stack, so as to be under a stagnation pressure during operation of the fluid flow velocity sensor, and wherein the second cavity is opened so as to be under a reference pressure during operation of the fluid flow velocity sensor. The fluid flow velocity sensor further comprises a detector configured to measure a parameter representative of the differential pressure between the first and the second cavities.
