The booth where I had a "mind = blown" moment.
I feel like this is what I've been waiting for, for the better part of 2 decades now.
I'll have more pictures in the next day or so, but here are a couple of teasers.
The case these items are in also serves as a recharging station for the rechargeable batteries in each one.
I took a picture of the wrong screen, one of them shows the SH and SC calculations, along with saturated temperatures, and readings for up to 10 sensors.
And yes, it is exactly what it appears to be, and with a 100 YARD range on the transmitters for the US product, the rest of the world gets a 200 yard range.
Expect to pay in the $2500 range once there is a place to buy it from in the US.

Is it really coming to market? They were at past shows. Were they at the Inficon booth again this year or have their own?

Looks neat. I'd be in, but not for that price tag.....

Pricey as it is, it should be remembered that others have offered less functionality for more money.
I definitely think this is headed in the right direction. I still don't understand why somebody doesn't snap a module on the end of a smartphone or tablet for the communications and use the power of mass production to drop the cost and complexity of producing these devices. That way they can focus on the sensors and the programming of features.What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.
Two pressures, four temperatures = SUCCESS!

Saw these at Chillventa in Germany in 2010. Was told they would be in the states soon. Still waiting

One thing that would tip it over the edge for me is if they make a wireless temp/humidity probe, that can be inserted through a test hole in a duct.
I talked to them about it a bit, and they seemed to be on board with it.
They may have a web shop up for it in the near future, or who knows, maybe the guys at TrueTech Tools will take a liking to it.If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

To bad we can't get the 200 yard version, I hate having to hunt for signals on my wireless probes.

So I'm not up on all of this wireless stuff. What will be the advantage of something like this over something like the SMAN4? And visa versa?

Then again, if they don't come out with a wireless WB temperature probe, that is actually useful for in duct measurements through a test hole, all that range won't really matter.
The pressure transmitters would be used with access fittings that allow you to hook up a hose if the charge needed to be adjusted. The kit they have packaged includes the hoses and fittings.
Outside of the initial installation, and refrigerant side repairs, a refrigerant manifold and hoses are, at best, a necessary evil, mostly evil.If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

Most of the residential systems I work on have ducted returns, with the air handling equipment in the attic, so I need the conditions of the air where it actually enters the coil.If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
