Comfort measurement with the multi-function measuring instrument testo 480

Norm-compliant PMV/PPD, degree of turbulence and indoor air values.

Evaluate comfort at the workplace reliably with the testo 480 Comfort at the workplace plays an important role in the well-being of the staff. The testo 480 helps you to calculate all relevant PMV/PPD, degree of turbulence and indoor air values norm-compliantly – in order to be able to make unambiguous, manipulation-proof statements on the thermal comfort level at workplaces.

PMV/PPD measurement according to ISO 7730

Step by step through the measurement

Step by step through the measurement The testo 480 calculates norm-compliant PMV/PPD values from ambient/radiant temperature, air humidity, flow velocity and clothing, among others. It then guides you through the measurement step by step and displays the results as a table and/or graph.

Suitable probes and accessories for PMV/PPD measurement:

Turbulence measurement in accordance with EN 13779

Step by step through the measurement

Step by step through the measurement In cases of complaints about draughts, you can carry out a degree of turbulence measurement or a draught risk measurement with the testo 480 and the comfort probe. After the measurement, the measurement protocol shows the norm-compliantly measured mean flow velocity, the mean temperature as well as the degree of turbulence and the draught rate calculated from these.

Other application recommendations


Evaluate indoor air quality

Measurement of indoor air quality

A measurement of the indoor air quality helps when making an initial estimate of the climatic conditions in a room. With the testo 480 and the suitable indoor air quality probe, CO2, temperature and relative humidity can be recorded simultaneously.
Evaluate light intensity

Measurement of light intensity

Light conditions play an important role, particularly in the ergonomic assessment of workplaces. Use the Lux probe to measure the illuminance of all common lamps and light sources.
