    I use the Inficon D-Tek Select. I have had great success with it. It's 22, 410, 404, 502, and many more.

    I've dropped it, gotten it wet and dirty, and it stills does a great job. Just have to remember to change the tip filter regularly. It comes with wall charger and a car charger. The car charger has really come in handy.

    Others may differ but this is, by far, the best leak detector I've ever owned.

    I know that my model does R410A. I've detected tons of 410A leaks.

    Maybe the older models didn't?

    I cannot say that i am happy with my H-10 for detecting 410A.

    Adjusting it to it's highest sensitivity and smallest leak setting is problematic...if the sensor grows weak, as it will, the detection reliability falls of drastically. That has been my experience.

    My apologies. Will look into it.

    halide works on 410-a?

    I purchased a something zx for 410a and it is ok. but if you turn the screwon the bottom of your h10 I believe clockwise 1/4 to 1/2 a turn it is supposed to work better. That came from bacharach.

    I am trying to find the Sensitivity for R410a for the H10G and H10PM and I will forward them to you as soon as I can, but in the meantime, please review the attached document.

    Although I do not know the Sensitivity specs, I do know that increasing the heater voltage and using the small manual leak mode will aid in detection of R410a.
