ACCUBALANCE® Capture Hood 8380

The AccuBalance® Air Capture Hood 8380 is amultipurpose electronic air balancing instrument primarily used for efficiently takingdirect air volume readings at diffusers and grilles. It features adetachable micromanometer which can be used with optional probes forincreased flexibility in multiple  measurement applications.

Offering durable, trouble-free operation, this lightweight, ergonomically designed capture hood kit saves time and money by combining multiple measurement tools into one package. The AccuBalance Air Capture Hood 8380 helps you create healthy and energyefficient environments while meeting local codes,  guidelines andregulations for ventilation systems.

Optional LogDat™ Mobile Android™ Software connects to the capture hood's detachable micromanometer via bluetooth to remotely take readings and datalog measurements for review or export, and is ideally suited for use with the capture hood stand. It is available for purchase and download on Google Play™.
