How to Use the Smart Service Tool Kit for HVACR Diagnosis

HOw to use the smart service tool kit for HVACR DiagnosisCalculating Superheat and Subcooling requires cumbersome equipment, writing down temperature and pressure readings, converting pressure readings using a PT chart, and finally subtracting totals to arrive at actual levels...until today. Now several of your common diagnostic/service problems for HVAC/R can be solved with one simple and efficient product: the SMART Service Tool Kit from Parker Sporlan.

Ease of use with mobile

How to Use the SMart Service tool Kit for HVACR Diagnosis - Open Kit box with sensors, tools and fittingsThe SMART Service Tool Kit includes lightweight wireless sensors that conveniently sync with an iPhone or iPad app, enabling you to read a system’s real-time pressure and temperature without using hoses or manifold gauges. The SMART Service Tools are compact, convenient, and can be used with most refrigerants and oils.

The impact resistant case includes; a low pressure wireless sensor, high pressure wireless sensor, two wireless temperature clamps, adaptors for service ports, 4 batteries for the sensors and 4 spare batteries.

The sensors and clamps transmit data via Bluetooth Low Energy wireless technology through a free app that works with iPhone 4s and newer, iPad 3 and newer, iPad mini and iPad Air.

Getting started

How to use the smart service tool kit for HVACR Diagnosis _ Parker SporlanWhen you open the app, you’ll see that the display shows Low side readings for Superheat in Blue, and High side readings for Subcooling in Red. These colors correspond to the Blue and Red caps on the Temperature Clamps and the Pressure Sensors.

The Pressure displays can be set to read in PSIG or Bar, and the Temperature displays can be set for either Fahrenheit or Celsius. Complete refrigerant tables for over 60 of the most common refrigerants are stored in the SMART Service Tool Kit App.

  • The refrigerant color code is included along with its name for easier identification.
  • You can assign a customer name and pertinent information for each session you run. 

Taking readings

How to use the Smart Service Tool Kits for HVACR Diagnosis - Sensors attached to piping outside - Parker SporlanOnce the Temperature Clamps and Pressure Sensors have been switched on, they will begin communicating with the App to display the correct data after they are positioned on the system.

Signal strength and battery strength are also displayed next to each sensor and clamp.

Each Sensor reading can be viewed in different modes, either analog, trend, or digital, depending on the Technician’s preference.

While the device is charting data, there is a running time stamp at the bottom of the chart.

You can zoom into points in the data stream to isolate and analyze specific details on the chart like a spike in temperature or pressure.

Easy to read data

The SMART Service Tool Kit app will automatically convert pressure readings into temperatures and calculate Superheat and Subcooling. The data is easier to read, calculate and store, allowing technicians to diagnose issues faster, look at trends over time, and provide proof of work when needed.

Once the data is recorded, the App gives you the choice of storing it or emailing it. One tap converts the information to a .csv file that you can send to a designated email recipient.
