    Looking for a Microanemometer that wont break the bank

    I typically do most of my velocity measurement with a hot wire. But I at times will use my pitot with a Dwyer AV model magnehelic.

    I really want to have a digital manamometer designed for air velocity measurement that will store readings.

    We have a shortridge at the office, but its almost never convenient to get when I need to measure velocity on a service call.

    So I have found an Exctech HD350 kit and the price is inline with what I think is reasonable.

    Does anyone have or have used this kit, or something similar in price point that would I can look at?

    Thanks.

    Ended up ordering a Fluke 922

    Found it on fleabay for about the same price as the extech.

    The Extech came with a pitot, so it was the better deal, but I dont own any tools from Extech, so ... I opted for the brand I know.

    I have a small one that connects to my I phone. Good enough to check the #'s if there not close I send the duct guys to inspect.

    I have found a few fire dampers closed that i wouldn't have looked for without it!

    I have had the Extech brands for about five years now. It is simple to use and as far as I know, it has been accurate.

    I agree Extech has always been reliable and if you ever question it, send it off for calibration! Nothing beats a shortbridge though!!
