The eCommission SmarX Controllers mobile application provides the user with a means to generate a flow balance report that documents several values, including: the box capacity at 1 inch H20 (249 Pa), the box measured flow and the hood measured flow for each setpoint used during balancing, actuator stroke and rotation, flow balance time and date, and any comments. Using the eCommission application, the user can create, append, and delete flow balance reports. Flow balance reports are stored on the eCommission application mobile device and can be retrieved and shared using the file and e-mail applications of that mobile device.

After flow balancing a VAV unit, you can use the eCommission application to create a new flow balance report, append an existing flow balance report with new information, view an existing flow balance report, or delete flow balance reports that are no longer needed.
