When commissioning and maintaining a refrigeration plant or heat pump, technicians used a scale to load it with refrigerants. This crucial step required their full attention.
Testo, a specialist in measuring devices, offers its new testo 560i connected scale, which, according to the company, revolutionizes the load of refrigeration systems and heat pumps.
Combined with a smart valve, an electronic pressure gauge of the brand and/or the testo Smart App, the testo 560i connected scale performs the operation automatically and more quickly and accurately. Refrigeration and air conditioners thus save valuable time for other tasks.
Fully automatic charging based on target value
Thanks to the new testo 560i connected refrigerant scale with intelligent valve and patented algorithm, the charging of refrigeration systems and heat pumps is easier and more accurate.
The technician has the choice between three automatic charging programs, depending on the target value of overheating, undercooling or the weight of refrigerant. After selecting the corresponding menu in the Testo manifold or the testo Smart App and entering the target value, the testo 560i scale and the smart valve take care of the rest automatically. This represents a real time saving for the execution of other tasks and for a precise load, and without error of the installation.
The scale and valve automatically connect to the Testo electronic manifolds (testo 550s, testo 557s and testo 550i) and to the testo Smart App on smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth. Represented in the form of graphs or tables, all the measurement values relating to the charging process are thus easily visible. Measurement data for documentation and reporting is saved in the testo Smart App. With a Bluetooth range of 30 meters, the testo 560i connected scale offers great flexibility, even in cramped places.
Guaranteed maneuverability and service life
Its compact dimensions, low weight and practical handle give the new testo 560i connected refrigerant scale a very high maneuverability.
The slightly rounded edges of the scale as well as its rubber-structured surface make it easy to position and hold the bottle for safe loading.
Finally, its high robustness, its protection against moisture and dust as well as the life of the batteries of the scale and valve guarantee professionals quality equipment.
Testo 560i is available as a kit including the scale, valve and batteries in a shoulder bag to facilitate daily transport.
