    fieldpiece??

    My fieldpiece crapped out fast with me protecting it from unit to truck and protecting it all the way!! Never had an issue with a small amount of moisture with my fluke. Is there not a way to protect the fieldpiece from moisture? Not talking of leaving it out in the rain but it only took a really really small amount of moisture!! Its a great meter (SC66) but i get rained on from time to time and cant afford a new meter everytime it rains. Any recomendations other than dont get it wet. It is called fieldpiece, hence the word "FIELD"

    Get the HS 26 original stick meter, about $110.00. It is waterproof. It comes with a clamp attachment for Amp draws. You could send a private message to Russell Harju, He is the product manager at fieldpiece and he is on this forum.

    Just to make sure people don't go and try and measure the volts at the bottom of their pool. Fieldpiece meters are not totally water proof, but water resistant. Some rain should be no problem but a toss into lake Michigan may have a different result. Just want to be honest on here. Thanks!

    Simply the ASX14 is an accessory that attaches to a meter (such as the HS36) that displays what the ASX14 is reading.

    The SS34 is a standalone unit.

    The SSX34 also does 4 refrigerants (22, 410, 134, 404) while the ASX14 does 2 (22 and 410).

    I believe the asx14 is an add on for the hg2 hvac analizer and the other unit is a stand alone unit. Check out the fieldpeice website

    I almost exclusively use FP instruments and love my SM480 manifold and JobLink probes, pumps, manometers etc. I also like their meters quite a bit, but I recently had 2 FP meters crap out on me back to back from just sweating on them. SC440 and SC260. I do sweat a lot, but I still feel that it is absurd that an HVAC meter would be so sensitive to moisture. I sent my SC440 in for warranty repair and bought an SC260 to use in the meantime. Well, I sweated on it today and it is done now. Gonna send this one in as well and buy an EUI or FLUKE this time. I had a Fluke meter for years before that and it served me well until I ran it over with my truck. The clamp broke, but the rest of the functions still good. I really hope FP does something to remedy this problem as I do like the functionality of their meters best.
