They measure the air speed by calculating how fast the probe sensor is being cooled by the airflow.
The principles behind all hot-wire anemometers may be the same, but the quality varies. Simply put, with our temperature compensation sensor, our Climomaster is the most accurate with an accuracy of +/- 2%. 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.
Yes, all our instruments come with a calibration certificate.
Kanomax recommends annual calibration to ensure accuracy.
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).
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.
No. Unfortunately these options are built into the main unit and must be ordered with the unit. They cannot be added later.
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.)
The unit ships in a hard carrying case and includes a probe connector cable, 6 x AA batteries, and a NIST traceable calibration certificate. Note: The main body does not come with a probe, but we do have combo part numbers available that include a probe.
The Climomaster probes use a smart technology that keeps the calibration data on a small chip inside each probe. This means you can swap out the probes freely in the field without needing to recalibrate either the probes or the main unit. You can also swap out the probe cable in the field if you need different lengths for different applications.
