AIR VELOCITY TRANSMITTER Dwyer Instruments’ Series AVUL Air Velocity Transmitter is a versatile, duct-mount thermal anemometer that is suitable for measuring air velocity or volumetric airflow in VAV systems or building ducts. By measuring the heat loss between its two sensing elements as air flows, the product

and off at optimal times to get the best use of the power generated. It has the ability to use machine learning to gather intelligence over time, learning from user preferences as well as drawing data from external factors like the weather. The inverter can be managed and monitored through the Redback app or portal, giving users and installers full visibility and control of the energy flow in a home.
