New DRSA-1200 eases integration with manifolds

January 25, 2007 – Digi-Cool Industries, Duncan, BC, Canada

Digi-Cool announces the next generation of its Digital Refrigeration System Analyzer, the DRSA-1200.

The new DRSA-1200 features a smaller and sleeker exterior design, for easier handling while retaining the robust nature and full functionality of the previous models. Superheat, subcooling, pressure maximums and minimums continue to be a couple of key strokes away. 23 refrigerants are included on board.

With its updated pressure port design, it can attach directly to some popular manifold models using straight swivel fittings. At the same time, it retains its ability to attach to nearly any manifold the user prefers.

White Paper on Profiting with Refrigeration Analyzer Released

Nov 23, 2004 – Digi-Cool Industries, Duncan, BC, Canada

Digi-Cool Industries Ltd. releases a series of white papers, illustrating time savings and additional profits that air conditioning and refrigeration contractors can achieve by using the Digital Refrigeration System Analyzer (DRSA).

Comparing typical service procedures and performance against those using the DRSA, the white paper examines how accurate visualization of refrigerant pressure readings empowers technicians to perform, leading to greater productivity and potential for profit.

Drawing on 30 years of experience, design build contractor Doug Lockhart illustrates how modern tools help resolve difficult field situations quickly and effectively. Depending on the types of equipment serviced, contractors can expect to save 20 – 40 hours of labor annually for each technician, 33% of which cannot be billed to end customers. With greater productivity, customers receive better service for lower prices, while contractors can pursue and handle more business.

The DRSA-1100 analyzer from Digi-Cool includes automatic superheat and subcooling display, along with pressure max/min tracking. These features make system commissioning, service and diagnosis simpler, quicker and more accurate. Its pressure bar graphs show system pressure fluctuations hidden by other manifold gauges, digital or analog. It is user friendly, durable, and upgradable beyond the 22 standard refrigerant profiles.

Digi-Cool Releases Improved Analyzer with Superheat

June 7, 2004 – Digi-Cool Industries, Duncan, BC, Canada

Digi-Cool Industries is pleased to introduce the DRSA-1100, an enhanced version of their powerful Digital Refrigeration System Analyzer, for more convenience and better diagnoses during air conditioning and refrigeration service.

Modern AC/R systems demand more sophisticated procedures for proper servicing. With emphasis on reclaiming refrigerant and energy efficiency, today’s field technician has a more complex job than ever before. The variety of refrigerants in use further complicates the work, with differing P/T characteristics and less familiar failure modes.

Digi-Cool addresses these challenges with a powerful line of field service tools. The new DRSA-1100 analyzer adds automatic superheat and subcooling display modes, along with pressure max/min tracking. These features make system installation, commission and service even simpler, clearer and quicker. Maintaining the powerful diagnostic features and durability of its sibling released in 2003, its pressure bar graphs show system pressure fluctuations hidden by other manifold gauges available for field use.

The large digital display with patented, Dynamic Offset bar graphs shows the smallest faults such as hunting TEVs or smallest amounts of liquid floodback. Many system faults can be identified quickly, without any diagnostic guesswork. At ±0.5% FS accuracy, it gives the precision needed to ensure modern high-efficiency systems are performing at their full potential.

For convenience, the analyzer shows the saturation, bubble and dew points for 22 refrigerants stored within, eliminating the need for wallet cards. It is upgradable as new refrigerants come into use, with the capability of holding 50 more. Durable construction tolerates drops, impacts, oils and acids to endure years of field use in rain or shine. The unit is easy to install and will fit most available service manifolds.

The BTD-1000 analyzer remains available, with the same accuracy, diagnostic power of the bar graph and 16 refrigerant profiles on-board, including R-410A.

Refrigeration Analyzer Given Thumbs-Up in Magazine Field Test

September 14, 2003 – Digi-Cool Industries, Duncan, BC, Canada

Digi-Cool’s Digital Refrigeration System Analyzer was given a thumbs-up by technicians during a field test published in Plumbing & HVAC Product News.

Technicians at Rosetown Central Refrigeration & Air Conditioning of Bramton, Ontario found the analyzer “a very useful tool”. Using it both indoors and on roof tops, they liked “the convinience of having the PT chart built right into the analyzer”, and were able to tell the superheat instantly. After several weeks of use and riding inside a service van, they reported that the product showed no damage or problems whatsoever.

The review was published in the September/October 2003 issue of Plumbing & HVAC Product News. For full text or back copies, please visit www.plumbingandhvac.ca.

The Digital Refrigeration System Analyzer (DRSA) can greatly reduce wasted time and service call-backs from mis-diagnosis. Its large patented display shows pressure dynamics previously unseen by needle gauges, at +-0.5% F.S. accuracy. It also shows saturation, bubble and dew points for 16 refrigerants. Built by a technician with modern engineering, the unit is easy to use, upgradeable and will endure years of field abuse.
