How do hot-wire anemometers measure air velocity?

They measure the air speed by calculating how fast the probe sensor is being cooled by the airflow.

Aren't all hot-wire anemometers the same? Why should I buy an Anemomaster LITE anemometer?

The principles behind all hot-wire anemometers may be the same, but the quality varies. Simply put, with our temperature compensation sensor, our Anemomaster LITE is highly accurate with an accuracy of +/- 5%. This is due to several factors: 1) We calibrate the temperature compensation sensor, as well as the velocity sensor. Other manufacturers only calibrate the velocity sensor. 2)We use special high-quality materials, like our platinum sensors, that increase accuracy. 3) Our manufacturing facility uses not 1, but 4 specialized wind tunnels to test and calibrate our anemometers. These wind tunnels include a low velocity tunnel, high tunnel velocity and a variable temperature wind tunnel. 4) We’ve been making anemometers for over 80 years. During that time we’ve perfected our knowledge and refined our manufacturing process to produce a research-grade instrument.

Does the unit come with an NIST traceable certificate?

Yes, all our instruments come with a calibration certificate.

How often does the unit need to be calibrated?

Kanomax recommends annual calibration to ensure accuracy.

What kinds of airflow can I measure with my Kanomax anemometer?

You can measure clean air between -4 and 158°F (-20 to 70°C) in an environment with no visible condensation. (Please note: the temperature range given is for the probes).

Can I measure airflow in flammable and corrosive gases?

No, these are thermal anemometers that generate heat when in operation; if you expose them to a flammable gas it could cause a fire or explosion. Corrosive or caustic gases, such a chlorine, will damage the sensor on contact. While it is possible to use the instrument in a non-flammable, non-caustic gases the instrument is not calibrated for these gases and it will not measure airflow accurately.

I bought a Anemomaster Professional anemometer. Can I add the analog and/or pressure options?

No. Unfortunately these options are built into the main unit and must be ordered with the unit. They cannot be added later.

Which operating systems is the software compatible with?

Windows XP (32-bit only), Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 10. (Please Note: Anemomaster Professional comes with software. It is available as an option for the Climomaster.)

What is included with the Anemomaster LITE unit?

The unit ships in a hard carrying case and includes a meter with probe, 6 x AA batteries, and a NIST traceable calibration certificate.
