    I have had my s mans for a week now and can't imagine life without them now. I do wish those yellow things for the temp clamps were not on there though. I have just been keeping them in a seperate pouch in my tool bag. Wondering if I can take them off.

    -20*C winters and you keep your digital stuff in the van 24H?????

    You, my fine Finnish friend are braver than I. I would not be brave enough to leave my Sman 3 and my Testo digital equipment in the truck thru the winter.

    All my AC electronic instruments from Fieldpiece and Testo are in winter storage with batteries removed right at this moment. When I get a refrigeration call I take what instruments I need for the day and them put them back in warm storage.

    Cavaleri85,

    If you don't like the ears you can unscrew them and you will not affect the rest of the unit. If you choose to put them back on make sure to use a little locktight to keep the screws in place.

    Yep, that how it is! Today there was morning -27'C temperature outside. Guess what, ewen my Ford Transit did not want to start up...
    But if I know that I dont use my electrical tool's long time, I put them warm place to storage. And remove batteries, as you said.

    I went to take of the ears off and when I did they would leave the hole from the screw exposed. Does that leave access to the inside if the unit. I put them back in and am gonna look for a shorter screw to act as a plug when ears are off. Just concerned that it would make the gauge succeptible to water getting on.

    I wouldn't consider buying a tool that couldn't be used in cold weather, seeing as I work in it for 9 months of the year. My combustion analyzer goes in with me every night, if I let it get too cold the inside sweats when I take it in a warm house and causes error codes. But my Digicool hangs in the truck all winter and every time I need to use it I just turn it on, and it works every time...

    Russ, I need a narrower version on them temp clamp, sometime not enough space for the clamp.

    If the screws are re-installed I think you should be OK.

    Thumbs up temp clamp improvement requested

    I would say no more than the width of a cigarette; 3/8" give or take a hair.

    Another thing; sometime we need to put clamp on 1/4" and 3/8" pipe. would be nice if you can make a clamp so the sensor can touch 1/4" or 3/8" pipe. I am thinking of a spring loaded bottom pushing against the pipe, that will force the top piece (location of sensor) to come in contact with the pipe.


    disclosure; I am retired; don't work in the field much; however, I am training new recruit - they are the one having problem finding space to put a clamp on.

    Cold table, pizza table, reach-in-cooler, reach in freezer, are commonly found in most restaurant which we service a lot. Most of them use 1/4" and 3/8" copper pipe.

    Gotcha! The current clamp is design with A/C units in mind. I will definitely get this info for tools for the types of equipment you specified to our engineers. Won't be here tomorrow, but I'll get it on the list.
