    So you guys Highly recomend the cooper Model #: 4005I for a clamp in Temp reader?
    I need something to help me Do SC and SH so you think this is worth the $?
    I can get it for $110 at the supply house just affraid it would be junk. Will the other probe off the side do ambient Temp?

    i know my boss uses both this one(with humidity) and the cooper clamp on.
    i have had the red (sh66) & blue (sh77). been through a humidity probe once a year (3 i think) with very limited usage & stored in very safe location. luckily I've been getting free exchanges. had the 4005 thermistor clamp about 3 times with that failing about once a year but gave up on it a few years ago. decent boxes but can't say i side with the extra accessories that don't come with it

    Yes it does ambient when opened, and pipe when closed , i'm pretty sure it reads one at a time. I wouldn't buy another for the price. Not sure what other stand alone that is out there besides the cooper blue or red box, which I like but they are bulky and have to be carried separate from your tool bag.

    So you don't think it is worth the money? I need to get something for this upcoming ac season and don't know what to go with yet. I know I don't wanna go digital manifold yet. So I was thinking of the cooper cause everyone talks good about it. I geuss besides an AK900 a set of anlog gauges and a cooper works best?????

    Yeah it looks that way. I felt this was the worse tool investment I ever made. I am glad other people have faired better.

    IPRO SC8000 Read Temperature and Relative Pressure Fast!
    Intelligent temperature and pressure clamp for superheat and subcooling calculations.
    3 Tools In 1 (Three Modes)
    1st Mode: Temperature clamp From a Pipe 3/8" to 1 1/8" Or Ambient
    2nd Mode: Digital Pressure Temperature Chart For 65 Refrigerants
    NOTE: These two modes are helpful in finding Superheat and Subcooling calculations
    3rd Mode: Temperature And Related Pressure By Select Refrigerant When Clamped On Pipe 3/8" To 1 1/8"
    NOTE: This mode is not helpful in finding Superheat or Subcooling, BUT is Helpful in finding out if a recovery tank has air or non-condensable in the tank

    I have owned the Copper wireless thermometer for about 2 years now with limited use I have had 0 problems. I have owned the SH77 for 5 years and also no problem ( this is what I use on every service call). I would recommend either and recommend the Red or Blue boxes often..

    If I were you I would look into the SH66 if you are not going to use the instrument for wet bulb or humidity. I know many people with them and they all like the instruments. They are easier to read then the wireless and have a backlight. The accessories are nice to have to be able to read the Temp inside refrigerated boxes.

    Good luck let us know what you end up doing.
