Sources from Testo report that the gauge manufacturer has further optimized the price-performance ratio of digital manifolds with the introduction of the testo 549.
The company is addressing users who are still operating analog manifolds by providing a price that makes analog manifold gauges obsolete, and claims the product advantages make the 549 the only digital manifold gauge that contractors will need.
The testo 549 fulfils all the daily requirements in refrigeration contracting. The 549 has 60 refrigerant profiles stored internally, a 5 year warranty (with registration), measures high / low side pressure, displays saturation / evaporation temperatures, and provides digital accuracy that cannot be achieved with analog manifold gauges.
With optional temperature probes*, the testo 549 provides accurate, real-time superheat and sub-cooling at the push of a button.
