    Weren't they supposed to be coming out with that last year. It was simply a shorter wire, what happened with that?

    dont know. dont really care. if they cant give what the consumer wants there's little reason for them to be in business. people will buy someone else's product who does have what they want.

    The company never changed hands first of all. The videos are put up so users can get a better understanding of how to use the equipment. We are keeping an eye on the latest in Bluetooth technology. When it can get close to the range of the Zigbee, perhaps a change will occur.

    The use of the plug in thermistors can be a bit cumbersome I admit. Using a couple of velcro ties will help manage that. Plus having the advantage of simply replacing a thermistor rather than a complete probe has a significant advantage. Combining the mixture of Bluetooth temperature clamps with Zigbee pressure probes certainly decreases your working range as the Zibee will remain connected as the Bluetooth signal will fail.

    You can help us out on beta testing for the shorter wires.

    I guess, "we're working on new stuff", is code for we may have something in a couple years.
    Send me an email and we can talk about including you in the beta testing right now for shorter wires.

    I'm baffled why you would need to beta test a shorter wired temperature sensor. Seems like a question in a survey to all your customers would get the right length and it is what it is. Unless there is a wireless option I will continue to buy a full length 4011. I don't work on AC so it's never so simple of using a foot or two long wired sensor.

    Thanks Glenn for the info. Got it connected. Supply and Return is backwards. Remapped them on iConnect, and they switched on that app, but in MQ they are still wrong.

    The way it works right now in MQ is the first RH probe is RA and the second is SA. We are going to have a complete mapping of the probes in the near future. We are wrapping up some cloud projects and getting ready for a heating (gas and heat pump) addition to MQ.

    Thanks

    VERY well put!!!!

    Thank you for the invite. I still believe the iConnect has the best range by far, but ease of use is what still keeps it from being my goto probes. Shorter wires will definitely help, but full wireless temp clamps would be a game changer.

    I like the current length of the temp probes.

    Its not unusual to need to reach across a compressor to get to a place I want to measure.

    But the set up time is problematic for the go to set.

    I'm gonna just sell my Testo kit, anyone interested? It's basically new; comes with 2- air probes, 2- line temp clamps, 2- pressure probes, and 1- hot wire anemometer probe.
    The range of the FP does not compare to that of the iManifold platform. Yes it does go through batteries faster than the FP but there is no free lunch out there. You want working range with no loss of connectivity? You go with the iManifold Platform. As far as having to wait for your system to link up, power the unit along with the probes and connect. Takes an entire 2 seconds to do so.
