Air Monitor Corp.’s ELECTRA-flo G5 Meets the UL 60730-1 Standard

Our airflow measurement and control manufacturer, Air Monitor Corporation (AMC) announced some exciting news this week – their product, the ELECTRA-flo G5 now meets the UL 60730-1 standard!  UL is a global company that works with customers and stakeholders to help navigate market complexity. UL brings clarity and empowers trust to support the responsible design, production, marketing and purchase of goods, solutions, and innovations of today and tomorrow. They connect people to safer, more secure, more sustainable products, services, experiences, and environments – enabling smarter choices and better lives. The UL 60730-1 international standard is a broad safety category which applies to automatic electrical controls for equipment that may be used by the public, such as equipment intended to be used in shops, offices, hospitals, farms, and commercial, and industrial applications.

In this case, AMC did not just keep up with the competition, they surpassed them! This is another positive step among many, but they are not done. AMC is in the process of obtaining labels and will notify their rep base when transmitters are shipping with the UL mark. Upon request, reps can obtain labels for installation in the field provided for any transmitters shipped from March 10th onward.

About the ELECTRA-flo G5

The ELECTRA-flo Thermal Probe Array utilizes thermal dispersion technology in multi-point probes to measure average airflow and temperature. The rugged anodized aluminum probes have aerodynamic sensor apertures that condition turbulent airflow, resulting in a NIST traceable accuracy of +/- 2% of actual flow. Each probe array comes complete with an ELECTRA-flo transmitter for local data display, performing configuration and calibration, and to provide analog outputs of airflow and temperature.

The ELECTRA-flo G5 is a transmitter series within the probe array or measuring station. This system accurately measures the average velocity of flowing air by means of thermal dispersion at the sensor locations in the duct. Temperature is also measured via these sensors. The G5 transmitter can receive up to 32 individual flow sensors measuring airflow in a single duct or fan, and it generates the outputs, including network and analog signals, which are conveyed to a local controller or BMS.

About Air Monitor Corporation (AMC)

Air Monitor Corporation has been delivering airflow measurement solutions since 1967 – 50 years! They are the premier solutions provider for the Commercial HVAC, Industrial Process, and Power Generation markets. They are the only dedicated airflow solutions provider with expertise in differential pressure and thermal dispersion measurement technologies. AMC offers both because they know from experience that it is important to apply the right technology to the right application. Airflow measurement is not a “one size fits all” business. They offer standard solutions for common applications and custom solutions that will fit your unique needs.

AMC also matches the best-in-class technology with the best-in-class technical support. They have an applications engineering team with more than 100 years of industry experience. This group backs up their Regional Solution Team who work hand in hand with the best and most experienced local representatives in the industry. AMC’s technical team is supported by an operations team that has the capability and desire to satisfy any and all requirements. They can and do fabricate many unique solutions. We also have a 36,000 CFM DWDI centrifugal fan wind tunnel to test what we build. This wind tunnel was constructed per ANSI / AMCA 610.

These are just a few of the reasons you should let them help you with your next air flow measurement solution. Although AMC services many markets with a variety of applications, Flow Tech strictly represents their commercial HVAC products and solutions, which include:
