Handheld Vane Anemometer/Psychrometer Offers 8-in-1 Functionality



New York City — Dec. 1, 2014 — The new Mini-Anemometer/Psychrometer with CFM/CMM & Enthalpy (DAF3009) from General Tools & Instruments is ideal for HVACR technicians and contractors.

It offers the ability to measure eight HVACR-related parameters in one handheld device that is small and light enough for one-handed operation.

The DAF3009 can measure all parameters associated with installing, testing, and fine-tuning the performance of an HVACR system:

• Airflow volume (in CFM or CMM)

• Air speed (in ft/min, m/sec, km/hr, mph or knots)

• Enthalpy (in BTU/lb or kJ/kg)

• Ambient temperature

• Dew point temperature

• Wet bulb temperature

• Wind chill index

• Relative humidity

The instrument can not only measure air speed and airflow volume, but also can track and calculate the maximum, minimum, and average values recorded over a measurement “session.”

A session begins when the device is powered on and ends five minutes after the final measurement is made (when the Auto Power Off function activates). This capability is helpful for a variety of purposes, such as determining the fastest and slowest fans in a group or the average of a group of fans.

The DAF3009 also features a large backlit dual-readout LCD, a vane and sensor cap, and a tripod mount. 

Founded in New York City in 1922, General Tools & Instruments is a recognized leader in the design and development of precision specialty hand tools and handheld test instruments.
