Intrinsically Safe Mining Anemometer

The Intrinsically Safe (IS) Mining Anemometer is a battery-powered electronic anemometer for underground mining.  The IS Pocket Mining Anemometer makes taking ventilation readings real easy, with this small handheld unit that can fit in your shirt pocket.

The IS Pocket Anemometer's audible signal lets you know when the 60-second count has started, counting and ends. The LCD display can be programmed to read in metric mode in seconds.  Used world wide.  English / Metric

With Quick Spot Checks... Has Instantaneous feet-per-minute mode, you can check air speeds behind line curtains, on longwall faces, over conveyor belts, anywhere you need to verify airflow.  

Includes a 60-second count of feet-of-air.  As you walk the meter across the entry, it automatically stops counting feet-of-air after 60 seconds.  The count can be stopped for a partial reading.  An audible alarm informs you when the count starts, stops and at 15-second intervals.  


** Zone 1 Hazardous Area: The PMA-2008 Anemometer only carries a MSHA approval as intrinsically safe. It has not been tested for a zone 1 hazardous area. MSHA approval is for gassy mines, which may be equal too a zone 1 but officially, we do not claim it as such.
