fluidic flow sensor

fluidic flow sensor

[flü¦id·ik ′flō ‚sen·sər]
(engineering)
A device for measuring the velocity of gas flows in which a jet of air or other selected gas is directed onto two adjacent small openings and is deflected by the flow of gas being measured so that the relative pressure on the two ports is a measure of gas velocity. Also known as deflected jet fluidic flowmeter.
