    Benefits and Advantages


    The entire service organization stands to benefit from using the Digi-Cool DRSA:Quicker, more accurate diagnostics: easily spot hidden problem using sub-psi pressure dynamics

    Simplify cumbersome procedures: convenience, better visibility and less frustration improves productivity and employee morale.

    Staff see appropriate tools and training as tokens of faith and respect from management.

    Fewer unnecessary or inappropriate repairs: reduce costs on current maintenance contracts, allow you to bid more aggressively for new contracts.

    Rapid payback: Allows you to save 10 - 15 minutes or more at many jobs. Soon the analyzer is paid for and making money for you!

    Wow, this thing can improve morale, and get you respect of management!

    I'd rather save the 10-15 minutes.

    Does this thing do the superheat for ya or what?

    You would have to be a real gadget guy to justify spending $800 on that.

    $600 actually.


    Yes, they are neat but.....I find myself not too trusting of a digital readout for some reason. I don't trust my digital vac gauge as much as watching the needle of my gauge fall, so I use both.

    It would be nice if they did superheat but I guess one just has to try one out to see if it is for them.

    If you get 'em let us tool junkies know what you think.

    Dont tell me you still use a Sperry Snap 8 or an RS-3 Amprobe.
    And I hope you dont drag out the 260 Simpson, model six or even the model seven when your doing your low voltage work.


    (snicker, snicker)


    If you work in this field, I am sure you use a Fluke. And if you dont use Fluke, you at the very least use Fieldpiece.
    And they're all digital.



    Come on ..... your pulling our leg, right!?


    And if you tell me you carry a "Wiggey" .... oh well .... I give up.

    NO, that's not what I mean LOL

    What the beegeebees is a Sperry 8, some kind of antique? I'm only 25, I don't know those old thingies.

    Yes, all my meters are digital, just not my refer gauges. I just wonder what bad compressor valves would show up like on a digital readout. The numbers would be all over the place and hard to read would be my guess. I would love to try a set of digi-cools though to see.
    But on a funny note, my boss still uses an analog readout multi-meter, it's the crappiest lookin' thing, you wouldn't believe it (ofcourse he don't do s**t anymore). Oh, well he does stop into the office for an hour per week or so to make sure we're still funding his retirement .

    Buck Rodgers is taking over our industry, I'm telling you.
    That looks like a StarTrek prop.

    One of my rocket scientists would hook it up to 410A and that would be the end of it. That thing would be on the shelve with the other broken toys.

    Let me know when it hits $49.95 I'll give it a try. For that price you could buy, two Richies a fluke two input thermo, and a couple of PK 100s. You would still have enough left over for some beer.

    When you drop a Richie you don't want to cry.
    A Diamond is just a piece of coal, that made good under pressure!

    I have a J/B Industries SH-31N superheat/subcooling gauge tie wrapped to my center hose near the manifold. Have a swivel tee on both the high side and low side. I use it everytime I check a charge. I'll have to post a pic of my setup. $150 or less as I remember. This is my third or fourth season and it works flawlessly. Constantly updates superheat or subcooling. Comes preset for R22 and has a key that connects to the side for R410a. Flawless. I wouldn't be caught without it.
