Tough & Smart: New Wireless Digital P/T Gauge Automates Measurements and Allows Sharing of Data

ManTooth™ Wireless Digital P/T Gauge from YELLOW JACKET Reduces Costs and Increases Productivity

In our increasingly data-driven world, it was only a matter of time before the everyday HVAC technician would be affected by the demands for more, and more accurate data.

Keeping ahead of the growing demand for smart data, YELLOW JACKET has launched a new wireless gauge called the ManTooth.

The ManTooth uses a manifold/Bluetooth connection to send temperature and pressure measurements directly to your smart phone or tablet device. It is available now in both single pressure and dual pressure gauge sets. Both options come with the free, downloadable ManTooth RSA App by YELLOW JACKET, available through the Apple App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android)

Once the App is installed on your iPhone (4S and newer), iPad or Android device, it acts as an interface, displaying the system’s actual maximum and minimum pressure measurements, temperatures, and superheat and subcooling in an easy-to-read color format.

“This is just the first step in a digital revolution that is transforming the HVAC servicing industry,” said Michael Lanners, Vice President of Domestic Sales and Marketing for YELLOW JACKET. “With smart data, HVAC service contractors can do a better job of forecasting service needs for their customers, while at the same time, providing more accurate data in shorter period of time.”

The ManTooth is capable of accurately reading pressures up to 700 psia (48.3 bar) from a range up to 400 feet. A rechargeable lithium polymer battery provides approximately 10 hours of battery life from a full charge. The units also feature built-in Schrader ports so it’s easy to adjust refrigerant charge without removing the ManTooth module from the system.

Within the app, you can save pressure and temperature readings from a servicing session, making it easy to share screenshots of information via email. Each servicing session can be automatically organized by location and unit, providing technicians the ability to track and store service history.

“We’ve designed our app with simplicity in mind,” Lanners added. “We realized in the design process that we needed to make it as easy as possible to collect critical pressure and temperature data for this new product to succeed in the marketplace.  And, yet, to stay true to the YELLOW JACKET brand, we also needed to make it tough and durable enought to hold up to the demanding, day-to-day work of servicing HVAC systems.”

The 67001 and 67002 model gauges both come with a two-year warranty.
