    MQ is fine for commercial. Right now it is geared toward single stage equipment, but we are adding in a multi-circuit mode soon. The software can be used with Testo, Fieldpiece, and iConnect/iManifold. Right now for commercial, the strap probes provide the most flexibility for sure.

    I’m torn. I feel like if I drop the ridiculous money on iConnect, Testo or FP will come out with a strap probe or something similar.

    Are the iConnect strap sensors the same as the Cooper Atkins ones?

    Yes they are.

    What do you like using on commercial stuff?

    Did you ever end up buying a laser alignment tool? Lol

    Not yet on the laser. Most times I use the Appions. Wish I bought the laser instead of the Iconnect.

    So with MQ, could I use Fieldpiece pressure probes with iConnect temperature straps?

    Yes, but you need at least the i connect hub, or the I manifold to be able to plug the temp probes into, but without the pressure probes to go along, the user mapping may be limited.

    I’ll just stick with my Appion gauges then. Maybe one day...

    Imanifold

Flags are "symptoms of" Symptoms of a liquid line restriction might be low liquid pressure, low suction, and liquid line temp below ambient for example. An undercharge would have both of the same.
    I know this post was very old but do you still think quick measure is still better then imanifold? Ans also do you like test or the iconnect probes better?

    quick measure dont have second circuit...
    And im using only oldschool imanifold software. v 2.0 not for me.

    I have both iManifold and FP. FP with MQ is much easier to use. FP is much more compact & portable...also the wireless pipe clamps make it very worthwhile, plus with iManifold, you have to carry the iConnect base as well as the probes (and iManifold's pipe clamps have to be plugged into the base or a pressure probe or extender).

    The iManifold is a good system, but sits in my office. I don't feel like I've missed anything using the FP probes with MQ.

    As to the app comparison, MQ wins hands down, IMO. MQ is better than the iManifold app, the Testo app and much, much much better than the FP app. It blows away all competitors. I do Residential and light commercial.
