Fieldpiece Instruments, an industry leader in tools and test instruments for HVACR professionals, introduces the SRS1 Refrigerant Scale with Weight Alarm. The scale delivers accurate measurements for residential or light commercial facilities and the weight alarm sets the Fieldpiece scale apart from anything else with its ease of use. The scale measures refrigerant tanks up to 110 lbs.
Russ Harju, product manager Fieldpiece Instruments says, "This is the HVACR techs’ new best friend. He’ll be carrying it to most jobs. With a comfortable over-the-shoulder carrying case his hands will be free to climb a ladder or to carry other equipment to and from the job.”
The SRS1 delivers accurate measurements over the life of the product in a lightweight but heavy-duty design due to its thick aluminum walls.
The weight alarm is easy to use. Quickly set the charge/recover alarm using the big numeric key pad — no more scrolling digits. Set the tank on the platform, dial in how much you want to charge, and wait for the alarm to tell you it's time to close the valve. You can set the alarm to sound when approaching a set weight. This is useful when you know how much you want to add or remove from the system and you want to work on other things nearby.
The SRS1 features a remote with a bright blue backlight for use in poor lighting conditions. A strong magnetic strip allows technicians to hang the remote at eye level while charging or recovering. The heavy-duty platform is constructed of solid aluminum with ruggedized rubber bumpers. A slotted rubber pad holds refrigerant bottles firmly in place.
The SRS1 comes standard with a 9V battery, which lasts an average of 80 hours. Auto-Power Off extends the life further and is easily disabled in charge/recovery mode.
