ASHRAE Psychrometric Chart App

Now Available for iPad!
Android version in development - coming soon!

The new ASHRAE Psychrometric Chart app is the first truly interactive graphical psychrometric chart for the iPad, and it includes both I-P and SI units.

Easily plot HVAC and other psychrometric processes while out in the field, save the graphs, and then email the graph and results to yourself or clients.

Click below to see the app in action:

 

The ASHRAE Psych Chart app includes the following features and functionality:

  • Display a fully customizable psychrometric chart in both landscape and portrait modes.
  • Customize the graph in many different ways, including specifying the psychrometric chart line colors, chart background color, hide/display status of chart lines, point colors, process line colors, units of graph values, and the min/max limits of the chart.
  • Using your finger, plot as many points as you want on the screen. As you move your finger around the graph, the psychrometric properties at the top of the screen dynamically update. In addition, you can double-tap a point to display the point properties and then edit them.
  • Create psychrometric processes by plotting points then connecting them with process lines. Also, create custom labels anywhere on the chart.
  • Email a list of all the points and their properties for a completed chart, along with a PDF of the chart itself.
  • Create an unlimited number of psychrometric chart projects. Also, you can create templates that you can reuse over and over again.
  • Zoom in or out of the chart by "pinching" the iPad screen to view items in detail.
