    Doug, I heard that the imanifold uses some technology/intellectual property you developed...any truth to said rumors I've come across on the fourms?

    What was the main reason you decided to close Digi-cools production?

    I'm all for technology, but don't really like how it attempts to takes the place of a personal knowledge, experience, understanding of how equipment operates and the physics behind it.

    Soon all condensers will have transducers and the proper placed pipe thermistors which will give you superheat and subcooling on the units control in real time from your office. Almost Like the Carrier Infinity Green Speed systems...the day will.be here sooner than later.

    Damn. Sorry I type to much. I'm contacting Brenda so I can buying a few more sets of pipe clamp thermistors.
    Im so mad I didn't get in on the 50% sales event earlier. Some how I missed the email! I would have had a stockpile of sensors and parts to keepw.going for.at least 2-3 years. Haha

    Now if I only knew the actual specs of thermistors so I could buy them on Digikey! So many 10k thermistor models I don't know where to start! ��

    Cheers,
    Patrick
    Nytefog,
    My distributors WERE of course confidants in what we should/would do for future iterations then one trotted down the road to Stride Tools and started up 'his' idea.......I'll let you fill in the blanks. Keep in mind it was Buck Taylor that discovered that the Testo had an IR port that streamed out data and then HIS software was the smarts behind the EasyKool software (spelling?) which someone else started to make a lot of money off of.
    Buck is the one trying to sort out the dog pile of software in the iManifold now.....he's got his hands full.

    As far as closing, we buried almost $2M into the DRSAs and had many wholesale houses refuse to stock us and in fact said they were threatened with some of the other tool manufacturers that if they carried DCI, they would pull all their product. I was floored and it left us with selling one at a time and although some houses 'drop shipped' product regularly, they refused to stock. They made $100 ea. for making a 866 phone call to Brenda and never had to stock anything. We built, stocked up to $400,000 worth of product, warrantied it and made 1/2 of what the non-stocking wholesalers made. With the Cdn $ at a real low, the house was worth less than the chattel mortgage on it we had to take out each time we did a new 2000 piece build, so we stopped pushing a rope uphill and elected to support the product and stop manufacturing but we didn't have much of a choice and thought this was a fair way to do it.

    As far as technology......I think if you seen my PH diagram and the information it gives coupled with the embedded knowledge you and the program gives, you'd be floored on how much more you'd know, understand and be able to fix/tune. I never interpreted the information on the screen......I'm a tech......I will never eliminate US!!!!

    Yes those clamps are the Achilles heal. Im dealing with a wire break in my 2nd set. Didnt bother to call as i figured your hands are full.
    I was able to just pull the wire through the hole at the end of the clamp into the handle more and it is working for now.
    Would love to see a fellow Canadian get a break and make some good stuff! Best gauges out there imo!

    I accidently drop one of degicools from a 20ft building.
    the gauges still comes on but I think the high side Trasducer is bad.
    Is there a way I can still buy this part.
    I guess I need to open it, in case wire just came loose.
    Im so supprise it survive that fall..
    please let me know if anybody carry the high side transducers.

    I only have two DC left that is working.. Im getting nearvous...

    My AK's are holding/flashing any value over 100psi on the low side. Is there anyway to reset or clear this issue? If not, do I send them back to Canada? Am I out of luck? Love my Digi Cools...

    Thanks in advance,

    Brendan

    Mine do this around 188 psi. Sometimes they will show a different pressure such as 120 when in fact its just over 188ish. The low side just doesnt read that high so it can have more accurate tolerances. I would try using some nitrogen to slowly raise the pressure so you can see for sure when it starts flashing. If its up around 180 I believe its normal.

    Anytime you go 'over' or 'under' rated transducer pressure (29.92"Hg on both sides; 200 psia (not the A in psia) low side; 550 psia high side it will 'blink' that display. If you've say zeroed the manifold with the hose parks on and 150 psi trapped in the manifold then when you release the pressure to atm. the low side transducer will 'try to read' ~300"Hg which of course is impossible......so it'll blink.

    So if I am reading this correctly...

    The solution to squirrely readings (most of the time anyway)... is to open both hoses... and zero the display???
    That makes sense!

    Ive been using AKs exclusively since they were introduced and became the choice of so many on this forum.
    Ive also been away from this forum for a few years, so imagine my shock and dismay when I attempted to purchase a fresh set of AKs for the cooling season!
    I have never grieved for the loss of a product before, but Im really feeling this one.

    What the heck am I supposed to do now??
    Help....
