Easy balancing with the alpha reader and the go balance app

Learn how to make balancing of 2-string radiator systems easier than ever from the GO Balance app using the ALPHA READER with the ALPHA2 pump.

This Ecademy module will introduce you to the ALPHA Reader and the Grundfos GO Balance app, explaining how to use these in combination with the ALPHA2 circulator to make Hydronic balancing of 2-string radiator systems easier.  

This is how it works. 

The ALPHA Reader features a built-in light sensor, which reads out data from the pump and transmits them to a mobile device.

Simply switch on the Reader by pushing the button on the front. Then activate the “balancing mode” and click the Reader onto the front of the ALPHA2.

Now, access the Grundfos GO Balance app on your smart phone or tablet. The app can be downloaded free of charge from App Store or Google Play. 

The user-friendly app will guide you through the balancing process, making sure you complete every step successfully. 

First you add all relevant data and conduct measurements for each radiator in the house.

The real time flow data transmitted from the ALPHA Reader are automatically calculated in the Grundfos GO Balance app,allowing you to subsequently adjust each radiator accordingly to achieve perfect balance in the system. In no time and with very little effort. 

In fact, balancing of all radiators in a one-family home can be completed in less than two hours, saving you both time and money. 

Once the system is balanced, a report will automatically be generated as documentation and can be emailed or printed directly from the app. 

Now, all that is left to do is disconnect the ALPHA Reader and move on to the next job.
