The Dwyer team is grateful to ACHR News for recognizing the Series AVUL Air Velocity Transmitter for its innovative design. This is the fourth year in a row that we have received a Dealer Design Award within this product category; keeping with our tradition of launching new products to meet the needs of our customers and the needs of the markets we serve.
The Series AVUL Air Velocity Transmitter was created due to both contractor demand and company innovation. HVAC contractors preferred the ease of installation of a thermal-based air velocity transmitter; but, were unable to use this type of technology on many projects due to high costs. Dwyer worked with HVAC contractors to determine the specific application requirements and developed a velocity sensor that improves manufacturability while maintaining a cost point that will allow thermal-based sensing technology to be integrated into more HVAC projects.
