Yellow Jacket manometer goes wireless

USA: Ritchie Engineering has expanded its Yellow Jacket product portfolio with the YJack Mano wireless dual port manometer.

The latest addition to the YJack range of wireless probes provides accurate static pressure measurements up to +/- 80in of water column. In addition, it can measure pressure drop across a filter or total external static pressure with the included static pressure tips, and measure gas pressure at the regulator inlet and outlets with the 1/8in NPT fitting or slide gas adapter.

System readings are viewed on the integrated display, or can be viewed and analysed through the YJack View app. The app allows engineers to easily receive and analyse live data for measurement of duct pressure changes and regulator gas pressure. In addition, it enables enhanced data logging and the production ofcustomisable PDF reports of system measurement and service information. 

The YJack View can provide seamless integration through Bluetooth with YJack probes and Yellow Jacket P51-870 Titan digital manifolds, or they can operate independently using a smart device.

A soft case is included for convenient storage of manometer and adapters​.
