New & Improved Airflow and Pressure Sensing & Controls

New & Improved Airflow and Pressure Sensing & Controls
Degree Controls designed the Rooster™ platform for airflow safety compliance and to empower users with functionality, reliability and ease of use. We remain committed to development of airflow-critical solutions in order to provide our clients with the products they need to stay competitive.

Innovations make your airflow measurement experience better

Our all-new Rooster™ Pressure100 is shipping now. The Pressure100 is an air pressure, temperature and humidity monitor which keeps your environment safe and helps you achieve compliance requirements for pressurized spaces.

A new version of our Rooster™ Monitor100 is coming soon and provides even more value than the current system. The new Monitor100 includes event logging for historical alarm viewing or download, and also provides the ability to save user preferences to a USB thumb drive, for download onto neighboring Monitor100s. Configurable alarm tones are also implemented.
 
Release of the BACnet® capable Rooster™ Monitor200 from Degree Controls is fast approaching. The Monitor200 is our most sophisticated airflow monitoring and alarm system for critical containment applications. It combines the proven functionality of our Monitor100 and Sensor100 with leading edge technology for expanded customer benefit. Advances include BACnet® capability for ease of integration into building management systems, volumetric flow, selectable digital or analog sash sensor input, and configurable relay outputs.

New Features of Rooster Monitor100 Benefit Critical Containment Applications

New Features of Rooster Monitor100 Benefit Critical Containment Applications
Degree Controls listens to our users when they tell us what they need, and we’re always working to improve our products. We are pleased to announce the rollout of new features for the Rooster™ Monitor100 airflow monitoring and alarm system. Key new features to benefit your critical containment applications include:

  • Event data logging with USB export
  • Configurable alarm tones
  • User's preferences can be uploaded/downloaded via USB

Rooster™ Airflow Alarm & Monitor Platform - V1.04 New Feature Rollout

Data and event logging addresses protocols where users need to show that they’re in compliance. The event log can be viewed on-screen and also exported to a USB drive in standard file format for compliance record keeping.

The ability to modify alarm tones, per alarm, gives users more information instantly and makes alarming tolerable in select environments where loud sounds cause discomfort.

The Rooster™ configuration file can be downloaded to a USB thumb drive for future use and also uploaded to other Monitor100s in your facility. The capacity to save and recall chosen settings saves valuable setup time and ensures operational consistency.

As current users know, you can firmware upgrade your Rooster™ via USB to stay up to date and take advantage of these new feature benefits.

Note: A Rooster™ with firmware preceding version 1.04 may be upgraded to version 1.04, however, existing calibration data of the chemical fume hood will be lost, and all settings will be reset to factory defaults. As a result, this update should be done during annual certification, where the certifier would be recalibrating anyway, OR, if the client approves forcing a recalibration.
