Fume Hood Safety with Rooster™ Monitor100

The health and safety features of chemical fume hoods are significant to researchers and laboratory workers. When buying chemical fume hoods, EH&S professionals and laboratory managers examine safety controls early in the selection process. Rooster™ fume hood monitors from Degree Controls continuously measure the velocity of air coming into the hood to help ensure containment. With choices for side flow and probe style air velocity sensors, Rooster™ can monitor hood face velocity or exhaust flow, and audible and visible alarms alert users if airflow is inadequate. Rooster™ also helps facilities comply with the safety standards and guidelines outlined in ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 110 and OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1450.

Laboratory personnel find the Rooster™ Monitor100 easy to use. The color touch screen works with gloves, and the concise, intuitive interface guides users through setup and operation. Rooster™ provides a clear indication of current airflow status with its color-coded screen background, indicator LED, and relay outputs for airflow alarm and sash alarm. Air velocity and temperature measurements are updated in real time.

Rooster™ airflow monitor and alarm technology is well accepted in critical containment applications. Clients find value in the Monitor100’s safety performance, ease of use, and many advanced features:

  • Alarm behavior, alarm tone, and device volume are configurable to meet specific organizational needs.
  • Password protected access tiers prevent users from overriding safety features set by facility managers.
  • Rooster™ Monitor100’s Night Setback input accepts a remote signal, usually initiated by a building management system (BMS), to change behavior during low flow conditions. Such occupancy-based lab operation can result in significant energy savings. 
  • Small to large-size laboratory spaces alike appreciate the operational consistency and time savings that comes with the ability to transfer system settings from one Rooster™ to another via USB.
