    Did JB start making them again? The one they used to make has been discontinued over 1 1/2 years.

    But either way....I would use my Testo 570 with sensors.

    I used The testo 570 side by side with my Field piece ssx34 one touch between SH& Sc and saw a big difference in speed and the testo was always 5-7 deg off.
    But I do Love my 570 for everything else!

    Are you saying the 570 is less accurate than Fieldpiece SSX34?

    I use a Fluke 116 meter with fluke pipe clamp and do the SC/SH calculations manually. I like the pipe clamps better than the velcro wrap sensor for smaller diameter pipes.

    More like your FP is off than your 570. How long you had the 570 and how often do you calibrate your FP temp clamp?

    It's ok, but you would be better off with an SMAN 3 or an SMAN 4.
