Airflow and temperature sensor Type TMP12
The TMP12 is a silicon-based airflow and temperature sensor designed to be placed in the same airstream as heat generating eomponents that require cooling. Fan cooling may be required continuously, or during peak power demands, e.g., for a power supply, and if the cooling system fails, system reliability and/or safety may be impaired. By monitoring temperature while emulating a power lC, the TMP12 ean provide a warning of cooling system failure.
