Range expansion: three new air velocity meters

Tuesday 25 October 2022

As a reseller of Airflow™ Instruments, we – from Observator – are happy to announce the launch of three new, portable air velocity meters: the TA500 series. These handhelds are designed to accurately and reliably measure a wide variety of important parameters for monitoring and maintaining indoor air quality.

The multi-function meters TA500, TA530 and TA550 feature a menu-driven user interface for quick and easy operation. The high-resolution colour screen displays multiple measurements simultaneously in real-time with on-screen prompts to guide you through instrument setup and operation.

Key features TA500 series

  • Integrated magnets for hands-free operation
  • Large, high-resolution colour display
  • Intuitive menu structure
  • User-customisable soft keys for quick access to common functions
  • Language switch
  • Air density compensation with on board barometric pressure sensor and temperature input
  • Optional smart plug-in probes, including thermo-anemometer, rotating vane and CO2 probes with calibration certificates

Additional features TA530 and TA550

  • Static and differential pressure measurement
  • Pitot probe duct traverse
  • Programmable K-factors

Additional features TA550

  • Step by step guided workflows including heat flow calculation
  • Duct traverse grid measurements for:
    • ASHRAE 111 log-Tchebycheff
    • ASHRAE 111 Equal Area
    • EN 12599
    • EN 16211

The instrument is an indispensable tool for HVAC professionals, thanks to its multifunctional features. It enables them to deliver superior results, in various applications. From HVAC testing and balancing to cleanroom testing, biological safety cabinet and laboratory fume hood testing, HVAC commissioning and troubleshooting, IAQ investigations, thermal comfort studies, ventilation evaluations and process air flow testing.

The TA465 is the predecessor of the TA500 series. In addition to the modern appearance and graphic display, the new generation has also been improved in many other respects. The TA500 series:

  • is made of shock-resistant rubber (durable);
  • is equipped with integrated magnets and a wristband;
  • has increased internal memory;
  • offers the possibility to directly print measurement results on a printer (TA500/TA530 via cable, TA550 using Bluetooth);
  • offers the possibility to perform firmware updates yourself;
  • does not require any additional software to process the log files on the computer. The instrument can be directly connected to the computer by using the supplied USB cable. The log files can then be opened. The names of the log files can be changed both on the instrument and via the computer.
