Our anemometers are hot-wire (thermal) anemometers. Basically, it measures the air speed by calculating how fast the sensor is being cooled by the air.

The principles behind all hot-wire anemometers may be the same, but the quality varies. Our units are some of the most accurate on the market. 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 60 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.

Annual calibration is recommended to ensure accuracy. However, this can vary based on how often the anemometer is used and the environments it’s used in. Also, some companies have an SOP in place that specifies how often the instrument will need to be serviced. More specifically, regulatory compliances may dictate the calibration interval.

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.

We have three multi-channel anemometers: The 1570 is a 4-channel anemometer that just measure air velocity. The 1550 and 1560 have more channels (16 and 6 respectively) and can also measure temperature and relative humidity. These two units can be operated in a cascade configuration where multiple units can be chained together to create more channels.

These systems are designed for flexibility so you can buy exactly what you need for your specific application. The 4-channel 1570 is easy to order as it requires only the main unit and then whichever probes and cables suit your application. The 1550 and 1560 are a bit more complex as these instruments are composed of the chassis, modules, cables and probes. Each probe must have the correct corresponding module installed in the chassis to plug into. We suggest calling your distributor or Kanomax to get assistance with ordering these systems.

RS232C cable, printer cable, power cable and 2 pcs. fuse.
