HVAC-R gas instrumentation and energy management solutions provider Bacharach has upgraded its PCA®400 combustion and emissions analyser platform.

Launched in January 2018, the hand-held device is used for on-demand and/or semi-continuous sampling in commercial and light industrial applications where furnaces, boilers, compressors and generators are present.

Key product upgrades to the analyser include sensor protection, Low NOx measurement, near-field communications (NFC) and the ability to connect/control it with a newly released mobile app.

The complimentary app further enables users with mobile devices additional capabilities including remote control and display, data sharing and GPS location data.

“Bacharach’s portfolio of combustion analysers uniquely have the capability to transfer test data from any analyser to a mobile device. The PCA 400 mobile app further improves on this with the remote control and remote display capabilities and improved report sharing options.”

“Reports can be sent from the mobile device by email or they can be uploaded to numerous cloud-based storage services, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, and more. This enables fleets and enterprise users to consolidate report collection from multiple users to a single email address or to a common cloud storage service for improved operational workflow and data management,” the US-based company explained.
