Advanced Infrared Refrigerant Leak Detector

Fieldpiece’s SRL2 gives field technicians premium performance in an ergonomic, rugged design. The infrared sensor delivers superior, controlled sensitivity down to 0.1 oz. per year, and doesn’t trigger on oil or moisture, like other sensors. The SRL2 lasts up to 10 years without replacing, and replaceable, water-blocking filters offer even more protection. Visual and audible alarms trigger on CFCs, HFCs, and HCFCs. It’s self-calibrating, and features a sturdy, non-conductive sensor arm, and, a rechargeable, 8-hour lithium-ion polymer battery to last all day and then some. A magnetic hanger, peak hold and mute buttons also let technicians work the way they want. New kit (SRL2K7) includes a rugged blow-mold case, two extension probes, wall and car chargers, and 10 replacement filters.
