    It looks exactly like the Fieldpiece, I am sure it is the same. And I was going to grab one of them just the same.

    Comes with a case, magnetic holder, extra filters and 0 rings, AC and DC chargers.

    I like the Fieldpiece because of the small tips and extra length attachments that come with it..

    Plus fieldpiece customer support is nice. It's nice to see russell on here helping the guys out. Although I did call him and left a message. We will see of he calls me back..

    Why didnt you just go with the name brand?

    Just FYI, it may look the same but the sensitivity is not. The non fieldpiece version is for the automotive ac industry. The auto industry has different regulations on leak detectors than regular hvacr. The auto industry leak detector standards don't allow leak detectors to be as sensitive as the leak detectors you guys use. The non fieldpiece version is not as sensitive as the fieldpiece version so that it can be sold to the auto industry.

    Bottom line, the case (plastic) is the same, the guts are not.

    The IR detectors operate differently, and require different methods. They sense changes in refrigerant vapor concentration rather than refrigerant concentration per se. IOW, you have to keep it moving. It will auto-reset to the ambient level. That's a plus, not a minus, due to the particular mode of operation of the detector. It allows fast and precise pinpointing of leaks with no fiddling around with the buttons.

    Actually the Robinair is more sensitive.

    They both meet SAE J2791 leak detection standard.

    You might want to reread that
    Also does the Robinair have the turbo mode like the F/P?

    1/15th is more sensitive then 1/10th, as well as 1/2 is more sensitive then 1.

    Yeah, it has the peak button that you push 4 times for turbo mode. Watch at 6:40 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GA9A7cUWRHI

    Does the FP have a hidden turbo button?

    So how is your SRL2(K7) working for you?

    Kind of retarded for any one to think these are so much different?

    My GMC is better then your Chevy

    Sorry I forget the Yellow case makes it better, especially if you are brand loyal to FP tools with their LCD displays that wont work below 20 degrees.

    ICE your funny..

    Eugene Those accuracies are in sensitivity to a leak rate in ounces...

    So .1 is a smaller leak then .15oz

    Now MAYBE the FP is the same and they just left off the 5 lol

    FWIW The newer UEi RLD15 and J/B Prowler LD5000 are listing sensitivities of
    0.05 oz/yr for R-410A and 0.025 oz/yr for R-22

    OK guys, you got me, I give up. But why is the Robinair more sensitive at low then the FP?
