The new DC580 is great for taking air velocity measurements to performing air duct analysis for balancing commercial and residential HVAC systems. This anemometer features two probe options: a hot-wire probe or a vane probe. These probes are field replaceable so you dont have to pick one or the other. If you purchase a vane probe now you can easily purchase the hot-wire probe separately as the probes are not hard wired to the unit. This is a nice feature to have because accidents do happen on the job and if you break the probe or cut the cable you dont have to buy a whole new anemometer.
The hot wire probe has an air velocity range of 0.2 to 20 m/s (40 to 3900 fpm) with a resolution of 0.01 m/s or fpm. The Vane probe has an air velocity range of 0.4 to 25 m/s (80 fpm to 4910 fpm) and has a resolution of 0.1 m/s or fpm. The temperature range of both of these probes is -4 to 140 ºF and a resolution of 0.1 ºF.
