New Series of Connected Test Instruments 1/7/2019

January 7, 2019 Sealed Unit Parts Co., Inc. to Reveal New Series of Connected Test Instruments Backed by a Free Robust App at AHR Expo 2019 Allenwood, NJ - Sealed Unit Parts Co., Inc. (SUPCO) has swiftly expanded its Supco® TechLink™ App-Connected HVACR test instrument line over the past year by adding a Wireless Vacuum Gauge - the Supco® VG640TL and a new Wireless Clamp Meter - the Supco®-Redfish iDVM550. Both will be debuted at the 2019 AHR Expo in Atlanta January 14-16 at Booth B2139. The two new test instruments, along with the Supco®-Redfish iDVM510 Wireless Multimeter, which was introduced a year ago, integrate seamlessly with iOS® and Android® mobile phones and tablets through a the free Supco® TechLink™ App. “We are excited about the productivity enhancing opportunities our App-Connected test instrument line provides technicians,” says Jim Adcox, Executive Vice President. The Supco® TechLink™ App helps technicians reduce paperwork, decreases the time it takes to diagnose problems, provides easy record keeping for clients and documentation for compliance and helps eliminate “trial-and-error” testing. “We know that technicians may be wary of investing in app-based test instruments due to high costs, says Adcox. But we’ve developed Supco® TechLink™ with technicians in mind. We are making connectivity accessible.” In the late eighties, Supco pioneered the first electronic vacuum gauge to the HVACR market. Continuous improvements include an oil and contaminant resistant Lifetime Sensor and a resolution as low as 0.5 micron. The Supco® TechLink™ VG640TL Wireless Vacuum Gauge goes a step further by allowing for real-time remote Bluetooth® monitoring from up to 200 ft. away with a mobile device and reporting of the evacuation process, which can be downloaded to PDF and Excel formats and shared easily with clients and supervisors. The Supco team will be performing live demonstrations of the capabilities of the VG640TL at Booth B2139 by showing a system evacuation and how the Supco® TechLink™ App captures, logs, alerts and documents the process through a mobile device. Also on display and demonstration, the brand new Supco®-Redfish iDVM550 Wireless Clamp Meter, which measures power (kW) and can do everything from testing capacitors to compressors to determining the EER on an AC system. “The iDVM550 Wireless Clamp Meter and the iDVM510 Wireless Multimeter push all the data into the Supco® TechLink™ App, eliminating the need to manually enter anything into a smart phone,” says Adcox. “That’s immediate and efficient data storage and documentation for a job. It saves time and money.” The Supco® TechLink™ App can be downloaded at the Apple® store for iOS® devices and the Google Play® Store for Android® devices. It allows all Supco® TechLink™ compatible test instruments to be connected via one “Toolbox”. All functions are absolutely free - including Quick and Guided tests that help diagnose problems at the component level. It even includes a free, comprehensive OEM-to-Supco® Igniter Cross Reference lookup. “It’s not just about making measurements,” Adcox says. “It’s about doing something with them. The App helps turn these devices into educational tools that can help increase first-time fix rates and bolster contractors’ confidence in their field technicians.” To find out more information on the Supco® TechLink™ App, visit: About Supco: In 1945 two naval engineers discovered how to non-invasively repair "a sealed unit" compressor.  This led to the development & manufacturing of the patented Bullet® Line Tap valve.  A manufacturer from day one, Sealed Unit Parts Co., Inc (SUPCO)  dedicated itself to innovative manufacturing of HVACR and Appliance replacement parts and test instruments.  Some of these included "The Original" two-wire Super Boost® A/C hard start,  the “3-'N-1” Relay, Capacitor, Overload Refrigeration Hard Start, the M500 LED Megohmmeter, the MFD10 Digital Capacitor Tester and the industry's very first electronic vacuum gauge.   Expansion to proprietary manufacturing facilities abroad, acquisitions of Climate Technology Corporation (CTC) , A-1® Components and Cam-Stat®, plus the development of a connected line of test instruments has kept SUPCO dedicated to being the innovative, value-driven leader and “The Right Choice” in the HVAC, Refrigeration and Appliance markets. ### Media Contact: Melissa Bennett Brand Manager, Supco
