Electronic Manometry in the 21st Century
The Comdronic AC6-HP is an electronic manometer which is designed to measure differential pressures – within the range of 2 kPa to 600 kPa – primarily on balancing valves within water-based HVAC systems. The AC6-HP is offered as a complete replacement for a traditional ‘water box’ and is the obvious choice for today’s commissioning engineers.
Extensive Valve Database – At Your Fingertips!
The performance characteristics of over 4,000 valves – from 67 manufacturers – are pre-programmed into the AC6-HP and this extensive knowledge-base is continually being updated as new valves are introduced onto the market. Valve data files are automatically updated whenever an AC6-HP is serviced by us.
A nine-button navigation pad allows simple access to the easy-to-follow menu system and state-of-the-art software allows direct reading of flowrate, differential pressure, percentage of design flow and percentage of target flow. Display backlights ensure that on-screen data is always easy to read, even in the darkest of areas.
The use of sophisticated electronics and highly successful mechanics mean that high levels of accuracy are consistently achieved. The AC6-HP is particularly suited to modern systems with higher differentials being measured across differential pressure control valves and some automatic balancing valves.
The AC6-HP is lightweight, portable and compact and, as standard, it is supplied with a protective rubber boot in a robust carry-case, complete with connection hoses, adaptors, tools and comprehensive instructions. Full technical and service support is provided

HIGH PRESSURE manometer 0-600 kPa differential. The Comdronic AC6 meter is an electronic manometer programmed to carry out differential pressure measurements primarily on balancing valves within the HVAC industry. The state of the art software and extensive database of the world’s balancing valves allows direct reading of flow, differential pressure, percentage of design flow and target flow. The nine button design allows simple navigation of the easy to follow menu system with all parameters visible on screen. System accuracy is by the use of carefully selected sensors protected by DSP Technology with resolution and accuracy most appropriate to the range of differential pressures being measured. The use of sophisticated electronics and highly successful mechanics removes the need for cumbersome ‘water boxes’with their poisonous and inconvenient fillings. Pressure differential ranges are more suited to modern systems with higher differentials being measured across Diff controllers and some automatic balancing valves. Combining this with a database of over 3500 balancing valves from 60+ manufacturers the AC6 is the obvious choice for the modern commissioning engineer. The compact and lightweight AC6 includes transducer/display unit, snap connector anti kink tubing with isolation valves, snap connectors for most valves, protective rubber boot,toolkit, quick reference guide and instruction manual.
