    recommend thermometer and Micron gauge

    I need to replace some worn out equipment. 2 out of 3 of my probes stopped working on my old Cooper black box. I'd like to try a different brand and style. Maybe some slightly bigger numbers and one with a backlight would also be nice. I was looking at the Yellow Jackets. Preferably one that comes in a box to protect it. Any online supply house recommendation would also be appreciated.

    thanks!

    I use the new cooper electronic thermometer/humidity tester that comes in the blue box. It has a back light. I ordered the needle probe for it since it is fast response and fits in petes plugs easily. I use the yellow jacket vacuum gauge as mentioned above. Reads from atmosphere down to 1 micron.

    Fluke 52 with the temp clamp is absolutely the best I have ever used.

    Pretty good is not an option for a micron gauge.

    The gauge works better as a paper weight then it ever will as a micron gauge!


    I recommend you look at the YJ 69075 for a good micron gauge.

    As far as temp probes, it depends what you are doing with them as to what I would recommend.

    I am currently using the CPS as well and love it. It works great and I have had it for about 2 months now with ZERO problems. Although....I like the YJ as well. Maybe that will be the next one I get....til then I am extremely happy with what I have.

    Fluke 52II & YJ 69080

    I use the Fluke 52II for everything -- by far the best field thermometer.

    I like the YJ 69080 because it measures in increments, is cheap, and does the job (lil bulky though). I also have a Supco LED that measures in increments.

    The price is easy to beat. And the quality is really a matter of opinion. But i use this http://www.tequipment.net/ExtechEA10.asp and it costs less and works perfectly. Havent had a single problem with it. And im pretty sure it has all the features that youll need.

    My Fluke 52 has been collecting dust since I've been using the testo 905-T2.
