SRIM - Room Isolation Monitor

The new low cost room pressure monitor is ideal for pharmaceutical applications or where a central BAS is not installed
MRMS - Multi-Room Monitoring Station

Easy to setup AutoDiscoer feature allows for monitoring of up to eight (8) rooms (using SRCM/SRPM) with one (1) centralized device over BACnet
SRMD - Remote Measurement Display

View temperature, humidity, pressure or a user defined parameter with the single or dual LCD model.


  • Hospitals
  • Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Environments
  • Critical Environments
  • Vivariums
Setra's capacitive sensor technology is ideal for critical applications due to its long term stability and accuracy at low differential pressures.  The combination of Setra's touch screen displays and industry leading sensing technology make Setra the perfect engineered solution to maintaining any critical environment.
The integrity of the ventilation control system is essential in maintaining a contaminant free environment.  Whether a room is to be maintained at a negative pressure to prevent contaminants from escaping into adjacent areas or positive pressure to protent patients from outside non-sterile air, the proper pressurization of a room is essential.
