Dwyer Instruments Product Manager- Test and Data Portfolio, Jennifer Williams stated:
The Dwyer team appreciates ACHR News for the recognition of our Wireless Hydronic Balancing Kit. As a leader in the test and balancing industry, we strive to understand market needs and to keep innovation a priority. This innovative nature is reflected by receiving a Dealer Design Award for the fifth year in a row. As we embark on the years to come, we will continue to release new products while keeping our customers in mind.

The Wireless Hydronic Balancing Kit was designed by your HVAC leader to be the most accurate and easiest to operate manometer on the market. The Series 490W measures the pressure drop across HVAC balancing valves by using wireless sensors and a versatile handheld. These sensors communicate via Bluetooth® wireless technology to an Android™ based handheld device to display pressure measurements. Users can select valves being measured from a pre-determined list, or manually enter a CV value. The handheld monitors the flow of up to three valves at one time, allowing a single operator to monitor and balance a hydronic system in less time than traditional methods.
 
Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards were featured in the July 23, 2018 issue of The ACHR News, which is distributed nationally to over 33,000 HVACR contractors, wholesalers, and other industry professionals. For more information and further coverage, please visit achrnews.com.
