ROOM PRESSURE MONITOR
The GE General Eastern room pressure monitor takes advantage of our time-proven
sensor technology to monitor, alarm and/or
control critical room to room differential pressures. The same instrument monitors either positive or negative room
Monitoring of hospital rooms such as operating rooms and isolation rooms for housing contagious patients is a typical
application. Other applications requiring differential pressure 'N'2 monitoring are: fume hoods, clean rooms, computer rooms,
asbestos abatement projects etc. This monitor is extremely sensitive and performs reliably at very low room pressures. It is easily mounted on a wall and the installer has the choice of rear or bottom knockouts for electrical and
pressure connections. All electrical and mechanical components are housed in a tough polycarbonate NEMA type 13
(IEC529, IP65) enclosure with a clear, gasket polycarbonate cover for easy viewing of display and room status.
Pressure is displayed on the front panel with a resolution of 0.001' of water (or 0.1
Pascal), The unit measures positive
or negative pressure. A minus sign indicates a negative room pressure, Next to the digital display, a small light
indicates the selected unit of measurement (either inches of water or Pascal). A bright red and a bright green LED alert
those approaching of the status of the room. The pressure at which the lights change state can be adjusted from the
The room pressure monitor comes standard with a SPDT relay (for supplemental controls such as audible alarm or
remote status indication), and 3 analog output signals, 0 to 5 Vdc, 0 to 10 Vdc and 4 to 20 mA. These analog outputs
are proportional to the room pressure.
A selector switch allows field setup for either 120 Vac or 240
Vac 50/60Hz service. 24 Vac operation is optional.
