The essential hypothesis behind this circuit includes information around three fundamental parts-Voltage Regulator utilizing Zener Diode, Resistance Temperature identifier and a clock circuit.
Air flow detector is frequently fundamental in numerous applications or frameworks where it is important to recognize the presence of air to have an engaging image of the appropriate working of the frameworks. For instance, we need air current discovery in motors to get a gauge about the measure of fuel to be added to the motor, we need Air current recognition to check the measure of pollution or the exchange of defilement utilizing substance media like air. For high force thickness electronic gadgets, we need Air flow detector to guarantee the gadgets from getting over warmed.
Guideline Behind Air Flow Detector Circuit
Here, a straightforward Air flow detector circuit is created which utilizes an obstruction temperature finder as the fundamental part. This circuit depends on two standards – a) Variation of obstruction with temperature, b) Air as a cover. As current courses through the resistor, it gets warmed up. Presently when air is made to move through the RTD, it being a separator, permits the resistor to chill off. In this manner opposition begins diminishing and the voltage across the RTD diminishes. This variety in voltage drop is identified utilizing a clock circuit to give a sign of the air flow.

Air flow Detection Circuit Design
This circuit is intended to give a consistent current contribution to the RTD with the goal that it is warmed somewhat toward the start. The RTD chose here is HEL-700 platinum RTD, which works at a most extreme working current of 2 mA. Here we are utilizing a Zener Diode as a voltage controller to give a consistent current to the RTD.
To plan a Zener voltage controller, we need to initially choose the Zener diode. Here a Zener diode with Vz = 4.7V is chosen. Since input voltage is 12V and required yield current is 2mA, we select a heap obstruction of 100 Ohms, so most extreme current moves through the heap and just a modest quantity of current courses through the RTD. The information obstruction chose is given by (Vin-Vz)/(Iz+IL) and is equivalent to 38 Ohms. Here a 38 Ohms resistor is utilized as the info resistor.
The following stage requires plan of clock mono stable multi vibrator. Here the clock is utilized to give biasing voltage to the LED, which is about 5V. The LED is needed to gleam as the voltage across the RTD diminishes. Here we select a resistor of 10K and an electrolyte capacitor of 1uF. An artistic capacitor of 0.01uF is utilized to associate the control pin to ground.
Obstruction Temperature Detector
An obstruction temperature finder or RTD is a metal resistor whose opposition changes with temperature. It depends on the way that in metals, as temperature expands, the cross section vibrations increments. These vibrations cause impact among the electrons. As impacts increment, the energy of the electrons decline, causing an abatement in the progression of free electrons, prompting low conductivity. Consequently, with increment in temperature, the obstruction increments. A RTD is developed essentially utilizing platinum. At 0 degree Celsius, opposition of a RTD is around 100 Ohms.
