Wireless manifold to launch at Chillventa

ManTooth-appCHILLVENTA 2014 PREVIEW: A new wireless digital pressure/temperature gauge, which does away with traditional manifolds and hoses, looks set to create a stir when launched at Chillventa.

The new Yellow Jacket ManTooth digital pressure/temperature gauge provides wireless connection to your smart device so you can test the system without losing refrigerant.

The ManTooth is available as a single pressure wireless digital P/T gauge with clamp or as a dual pressure unit with a P/T module, tether unit and two temperature probe clamps.

It provides a Bluetooth link to a free downloadable ManTooth RSA app and wirelessly calculates and displays the ManTooth-PTsystem’s actual maximum and minimum pressures, temperatures, superheat and subcooling in an easy-to-read colour format on your iPhone, iPad or Android device.

Screenshots of pressure and temperature readings can be saved from sessions and these can be automatically organised by location and unit being serviced, making it easy to track and store service history. Screenshots can be shared via e-mail.

It has a range of up to 400ft and includes built-in Schrader ports to easily adjust refrigerant charge. Its rechargeable lithium polymer battery gives up to 10 hours use.
