    New Testo 557 RSA

    Testo 557 RSA with Vacuum, two probes and case ($525) I have not had one in my hands yet to comment on performance, but I should see one soon. I just posted the specifications as listed on TruTech Tools. Search 557 in the search bar) The information I have is from a Testo cut sheet. More to come, but I thought someone mike like to see it.

    Besides the higher operating pressure something that stands out would be more refers loaded. Looks to be very similar to the 550 but a 4 way manifold which is obvious

    Jim any chance they matched pressure with saturation temps on one screen yet?

    do we want the vacuum on the manifold?

    I thought the lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng thread on this site concluded that the fewer connections and hoses the better.

    also, do you want a multi function device that when one goes, say vacuum gauge, the whole thing has to go in for service?

    the 550 was bashed pretty good, not necessarily warranted, but now the same foot print and added feature of vacuum and it is a good thing.

    almost like someone was trying to beat the other, SMAN/Testo.

    Yea Seems like the Jones thing but I don't think pulling a vacuum and testing a rise with out a manifold has caught on like you would think and these are just products of what other people want (want to buy). They show so high accuracy on the vacuum gauge so maybe guys will actually notice why you really don't want to have it stuck in the manifold after all.

    Wow, that was a fast upgrade of the 550! But is there a reason why there are no official infos on the testo us site for this product yet?

    Wink Testo 557

    Would you like me to email a picture to you? It is a 557, I did not get it at true tech tools. I bought it at climatedoctors.com
    Maybe they sold the last one they had.
