The Heating Ventilation and Air-condition (HVAC) market in the Building Automation industry focuses on controlling atmospheric conditions to make them more suitable. Among the conditions controlled by these systems are temperature and humidity.
IST's thin film platinum and nickel temperature sensors are ideal for heat meter monitoring and control applications in HVAC because of their high resolution and long term accuracy. Additionally, IST's thin film capacitive humidity sensors are ideal for controlling the relative humidity of an environment due to their rapid response times and accuracy over time. Thermal mass flow sensors also have applications in the HVAC industry as an indicator of duct airflow.
