Carmel Software announces that it has issued an update to the ASHRAE 62.1 mobile app for the Apple iPhone. The ASHRAE Standard 62.1 app allows for field-based outdoor air calculations found in the Ventilation Rate Procedure and the interactive 62MZCalc spreadsheets contained in the ASHRAE User's Manual for Standard 62.1, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality. This update includes 62.1-2010-specific and other modifications including:
  1. Allows for either ASHRAE 62.1-2007 or 62.1-2010 calcs (the user can select which method to use by project)
  2. Includes 2 more inputs to accommodate the 62.1-2010 calcs
  3. Includes updated values for existing space types and values for 5+ new space types
  4. Updates the HTML report to include the additional inputs and results for the 2010 version
The ASHRAE 62.1 app can be used to determine 62.1 compliance of simple ventilation systems (single zone, 100 percent outdoor-air and changeover-bypass VAV) as well as more complex ventilation systems (single-path, multiple zone recirculating) and can operate in both IP and metric units. Other benefits include the ability to store and access multiple projects within the app and also to email inputs and results for use in a spreadsheet at a later time.

"As a leader in the advancement of the latest HVAC&R technology, ASHRAE is pleased to continue to build on its smart phone technology," Sheila Hayter, chair of ASHRAE's Publication/Education Council, said. "Apps such as these ensure our members have instant access to the most accurate information without having to return to their office to perform calculations."

"We are proud to have developed ASHRAE's first iPhone app, and we are happy to continue to work with ASHRAE to release the 2010 update," says Stephen Roth, Principal of Carmel.

The ASHRAE 62.1 app can be purchased through Apple's online iPhone App Store for $19.99.
