Meter Takes Accurate Air Velocity, Temperature, Relative Humidity Measurements

FLIR Systems’ multi-purpose FLIR EM54 environmental meter is viable for taking measurements in heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC/R) applications. The instrument, based on hygrometer technology, identifies deviations from ambient relative humidity levels, which can cause static hazards at manufacturing sites and discomfort in homes and offices. It helps users quickly and accurately identify symptoms of clogged HVAC/R filters, duct leaks that reduce airflow, and overloaded systems.

 

The meter is viable for inspecting ducting, electrical motors, thermal equipment, and other system components in residential, commercial, and industrial facilities. Equipped with an external vane anemometer for wide-range, high-resolution air velocity measurements, the FLIR EM54 allows users to check air speed at duct inlets and outlets.
