1. Why is the analyzer so large?
We felt it was important to have large, well-spaced buttons on our keypad. We also felt it was important to have all external sensor connections along one side of the instrument. These two items, along with the port spacing of the Titan 4-valve manifold, dictated the size of the instrument. We also added some features on the circuit board that will allow for future modular expansion.
2. Why is the display in full color?
We chose a full color graphic display to provide bright, high contrast, meaningful displays. This display, along with plenty of program memory on the circuit board, makes it upgradeable with a simple software update. The sky's the limit!
3. What type of transducer is in the analyzer?
Contrary to speculation, the Refrigeration System Analyzer does not use the same pressure sensors as used in our solar/light-powered gauges. It uses a pair of sealed, linear, high accuracy pressure transducers.
4. What is the battery life?
Our specification mentions "approximately 14 hours of continuous use with industrial alkaline batteries." This is based on the instrument running constantly without the "power saving mode" or "auto power off" features activated. Also, the Refrigeration System Analyzer allows for the use of four different types of rechargeable batteries, which can help save on battery costs.
