    I need an accurate psychrometer for IWB readings. I have been looking at the New Fluke 971 and it seems to be pretty accurate. Anyone have one they can comment on. Or any other Digital Psychrometer worth buying?

    I just got the 971 2 days ago and I like it so far. Nice not having to try to focus on the sling so damn quick and no calculations for dew point and RH. The memmory function is nice to as you can show the HO what's going on. A little slow compared to some others Ive seen, but I've always liked fluke because they seem to last forever and are reliable.
    Every day that goes by is another day that you could have done what you intend to do tommorow.

    One good thing about a digital frychrometer is that you dont have to worry about some womans husband cold cocking you when his wife tells him how exciting it was watching you slinging your tool in front of her.

    You did not just put tool slinging and cold cocking in the same sentence right? From a customers husband no less?!
    ( And you missed getting "moist" in there! )
    Look, just do your job, stay outta my way and we'll get along fine.

    I also bought the 971 last week and I'll get it when the truck comes in on Wed. It will be my first psychrometer. I've been fleshing out my kit with electrical meters. I really don't care how slow it is because for the last several years, I've been using a hygrometer and comparing readings to a plastic psychrometric chart for WB. I'm certain that the Fluke won't be that slow.

    I used one of those little yellow things for a little while. I've gone back to the black sling thing because I like slinging my tool.

    Hey Freek, where did you get your Fluke? C D Jones?

    I asked this question last year w/o an answer. I purchased a UEI digital; piece of junk. Budro, you say you just purchased a fluke 971, have you had a chance to compare it w/a sling psych? I just broke my sling today, so I'm in the market for a digital that works if there is such a thing. I'm unconvinced by the posts I've read so far.


    Thanks.

    I like the Fluke But how would you stick the meter/probe into the Return and Supply to get DB/WB readings across the coil like the manufactures Tech support guys ask for. Of all the times I've called they want the readings across the coil. I would like to see Fluke make a meter with an extendable probe to reach into the airstream. I believe that would be ideal. thats my HO.
