Airspeed sensor limit?

Have just noticed that my airspeed sensor seems to show a maximum reading of 45.5m/s is this normal?

Would this airspeed be bringing the sensor to its 3.92kPA max limit?

Cheers Paul

  • I have not began tests with the Airspeed Sensor (freescale - MPXV7002DP) but noticed various limitations in its specifications. 1) Bottom temperature range 10 degrees Celsius or 50 degrees Fahrenheit).  Note: Adiabatic dry lapse rate is 3 degrees Fahrenheit per thousand foot above sea level in elevation.  One could not use this airspeed sensor on a cold day unless a resistor or LED heated it and it was protected by insulation.
