Check out the improved  Hard Panel that fits Model 1000, 5000 and 6000 fans for Home Performance tests. Retrotec's exclusive virgin ABS Panels are a vast improvement over fumbling with a frame, cloth and crossbar. Hard Panels slide and lock in place. The Fan's foot goes in a slot then clamps into an O-Ring seal.
That's it... you're ready to test.
Clients gather round to see these cool these panels. Professional performing tools sell jobs.

Get the FAQ
Q:   When using the DM32 Smart Gauge, I set the [Time Average] to 
10 seconds, and get slowly changing readings.  I thought I would
just get a reading every 10 seconds.  Is it working correctly?

A:  All gauges give a simple average after 10 seconds. Old gauges then update every 10 seconds but the DM32 updates every second.

The DM32 has 1, 5, 10, 30 or any custom time average up to 120 seconds.

A common support question is:

Q: Why does my gauge show two dashes "- -" on channel B?

A: That's because your fan is running too slowly. Change to a smaller, more restrictive Range and increase the speed.
