The flow / pressure drop curve can be set by the filter calibration function or adjusted manually. The advantage of calibration is that final pressure drop of the new filter is set more precisely which usually results in extended filter life.

Calibration can only be performed on the new filter. During the calibration process, the initial pressure drop is measured at close to nominal airflow. Acceptable airflow deviation for calibration is 10% of the setpoint.

The measured value is added to the filter class specific pressure drop, resulting in the calculated final pressure drop.

Prior to calibration the filter monitor must me assigned with the filter class. The calibration sequence is similar for all filters and can be performed according to the following example:
