There are two common ways to measure air velocity: by using pressure-based instrumentation or by using temperature-based instrumentation. Before we discuss the different technologies available for measuring velocity pressure, it is important to understand the basics of air velocity.
The Dwyer team recently released the latest model in our line of air velocity transmitters, the Series AVLV. This series is ideal for measuring low air velocity or volumetric air flow in applications such as: clean room systems, pharmaceutical buildings, variable air volume systems, and building ducts.

Differential pressure measurement can be beneficial in a wide variety of building automation system (BAS) applications.
One of these applications involves determining if a filter in your system needs to be cleaned or replaced. Filter health can be established by monitoring the pressure on the primary and secondary sides of a filter. A clean filter will typically have a baseline differential pressure generated as air flows through it. As the filter becomes dirty, this differential pressure increases.
When using a mechanical flow sensor, such as a pitot tube, differential pressure can also be used to determine flow velocity and volumetric flow. Continue reading “Velocity Measurement and Environmental Effects”
In today’s industry, the number of device output signals continues to grow. Each signal is different; so how do you figure out which one is right for your application? The easiest way to hone-in on the correct signals for your application is to decide whether you want a digital communication signal or an analog signal.
