Decide how many sample locations are needed
Generally speaking, a sample point is placed near each machine.
For Chiller applications: plan to place a sample point near each chiller. For larger chillers, a sample point at either end of the chiller might be desired. For smaller rooms with two small chillers, a sample point between two closely placed chillers might be desired.
For Refrigeration applications: plan to place a sample point near each compressor rack, a sample point in each walk-in freezer or cooler, and consider sample points near defrost valves if outside the cooled space. For larger compressors, a sample point near each compressor might be desired. For larger refrigerated spaces, a sample point adjacent to each evaporator might be desired.
Once the number of sample points is determined, select the appropriate monitor:
SenTech Monitors come in one zone, two zone, four zone, eight zone and sixteen zone models.
If a one zone monitor is desired, choose the IR-SNIF-1,2,3 single zone monitor.
If a multiple zone monitor is desired, choose the IR-SNIF-MCD multiple zone monitor.
