Dwyer Instruments Group Product and Marketing Manager, Michael Chhutani stated:
The Dwyer team is grateful to ACHR News for recognizing theSeries 490A-HKit Hydronic Differential Pressure Manometerfor its innovative design. This is the fourth  year in a row that we have received a Dealer Design Award; keeping with our tradition of launching new products to meet the needs of our customers and the needs of the markets we serve. 

The compact size of the meter and valve make the Series 490A-HKIT Hydronic Differential Pressure Manometer more ergonomically friendly than similar meters on the market.  It is easy to use with simple menu navigation.  Several pressure ranges are offered up to 500 PSI, which allows the meter to be used in even the tallest of buildings.  The cost-effective pricing of this meter is 30% lower than most tools.   Most important is the improved resolution, which moves the decimal point in the bottom 10% of the range to give extra resolution at the lower end.  The unit has digital dampening which helps steady the reading, even at a fraction of an inch of water column.  The resolution and ability to measure higher pressure ranges eliminate the need to bring multiple meters on a jobsite.

Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards were featured in the July 24, 2017 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.
