Product Details

This instrument has been discontinued as of December 31, 2007. 

Airflow’s TA5 Thermal Anemometer is the 'State Of The Art' in portable air velocity and temperature measurement. Measurements are automatically temperature compensated up to 80°C (176°F). The slim, telescopic probe is available with either a rigid (standard) or articulating (optional) all angle tip for outstanding on-site versatility in limited access positions. Both imperial (ft/min, °F) or metric (m/sec, °C) units can be selected at the press of a button and automatic electronic zeroing ensures very accurate readings are maintained with minimal zero drift. Another outstanding feature unique to TA5 is the bar graph velocity indicator which provides an instantaneous 20 step display of unstable flow conditions, an important consideration when traversing in ducts. An analogue output is also provided so that measured values may be downloaded onto compatible printers or Data Loggers. Calibrated to an Internationally recognised standard the TA5 is supplied with a FREE TRACEABLE CERTIFICATE OF CALIBRATION and a reply card is also included for UK purchasers to register with our FREE annual calibration reminder service.
