Data Logging Hot Wire Anemometer/IR Thermometer
General Tools & Instruments’ Data Logging Hot Wire Anemometer/IR Thermometer (CIH20DL) measures speed, volume, and temperature of slow-moving air. It can perform minimally invasive duct flow testing and energy audits, convert air speed readings to airflow volume measurements in units of CFM or CMM, and determine air and surface temperatures—including identifying overheated system components. It has a data logging capacity of up to 20,000 data points, and the ability to transfer data to a computer via a USB port. The product measures airflow volumes of up to 2.5 million CFM (72,000 CMM). It’s hot wire sensor handles even the slightest (2 ft./min) air movement with ±3 percent accuracy. It also has five available air speed units: ft/min, m/sec, mph, km/hr, knots.
The new GeoSystems® GeoSource Control Board is designed to provide the technician with extensive diagnostics capabilities and One Touch Commissioning™ in addition to control over the numerous operating functions of a geothermal heat pump. The controller ties to an easy-to-read illuminated display panel showing the status for power, heating, cooling, and domestic hot water. The panel also features five indicator icons to help troubleshoot lockouts and error conditions. Service indicators include: high discharge gas temperature, high pressure, low pressure, freeze, and overflow (drain pan filled with water).
One-Touch Commissioning is designed to perform an extensive system run test. The feature automatically runs through a 60 minute series of tests to ensure the system functions properly in all modes. It is initiated by pressing two control buttons which are hidden behind the surface of the panel to avoid accidental activation by the homeowner.
The system communicates with damper interfaces to provide continuous monitoring of all life safety dampers. The Fire/smoke damper interface (FSDI) is required for each fire smoke damper used with the Ruskin Inspector™ System. The device ensures correct operation and status of the damper and provides an alarm at the PC Panel in the event of damper failure. The system alerts building maintenance personnel of potential problems with visual icon on the touchscreen monitor and a text alert. The Inspector automatically performs all code required life safety damper testing and creates a data log for record purposes.
In this issue, we announced the Dealer Design Award winners — products recognized for their exceptional innovation in making contractors’ jobs easier. We also look at supermarkets, c-stores, and restaurants. They are notoriously tough business sectors, but contractors can help operators by providing the right equipment and services.
