I actually noticed this when I was modding mine and only had one sensor connected. Thought I somehow reversed something at first LOL.

I have an AK-900. Will my AK-900 thermistors fit inside the TS-1140 clamps? Or are they different sizes? I have never seen a closeup of the sensor used inside the TS-1140 clamps.

Seems as though it's the same thermistors that ship with the ak900. Also seems extremely simple to replace just the sensor if it ever goes bad

I took this idea from abcando and ran with it. I got to use it today, I really like how they work, and I like that fact that if you walk away from the unit then come back the sensors are right where you left them.

Now I get it. Great set-up 'hvac wiz 79'. I am going to order a set of the TS-1140 clamps and copy you exactly. Looks like the best solution for the AK-900.

Thanks. It works great so far & I'm constantly encountering guys on mall roofs who think it's made & shipped looking like the way i have it. Hell their just amazed by a digital display lol

I ordered the 4 pin Bulgin socket and pins today for my 1250 , thank you Iceman for those numbers ( and it takes a minute to convert those to the digi-key numbers , lol ).
When ever asked about Digicool I will be sure to mention that as an owner of one of these " you will be involved with the manufacturing process " . Shaking my head holding a piece of soft blue wire that pulled out of a crimp connector *

Shrink tubing is your friend.

Ok , so I'm thinking of the intro to the old tv show " The Six Million Dollar Man " ( I wont complain any more , we can rebuild this , etc. ) ....any specific advice on soldering wire to those tiny gold pins would be much appreciated. Any other specific problems with that connector ?
The 1/8 rca jacks...I'm assuming " mono " jacks are used ( male and female ) ? Im going to search out those next ...any wire recomendations (I've constructed plenty of guitar cords in my time but they were 1/4 inch , lol ) ?

Great build on yours too JTC. I've used mine a few times and it's working great. Best part is you don't have to spend much to make it and no need to work on wiring or soldering and such. I noticed you used a smaller pipe for your high side sensor. Looks good!

Thanks! I ended up useing 1/2 in for the high side, and 1 in for the low side. Works great, thanks for the idea.

TS-1140 clamps work like a charm on the AK900.
Thanks for your help guys.

What Digikey number did you get? Itsiceman posted this number; PX0410/04S/4450

Are they the same? I want to know for sure before I order the wrong one. My temp clamp wires have been broke at the plug for a while and I need to fix it. I was going to take the plug apart and fix it, but I can't get it apart! It looks like once it is together, you can't get it apart without breaking it.
