Smart World of Testo – Refrigeration Systems

Testo has introduced the technological leap in refrigeration industry with its new smart manifolds which works through an app on your smartphones or tablets making every day refrigeration tasks easier…


Digitisation is the new buzz in the market. Every industry has moved or is gradually moving towards digitisation from analog systems to keep the pace with the modern trade. Worldwide, the refrigeration industry is growing in a very big way in terms of warehousing, large buildings, malls, residential cooling and many more.

  Apparently, industrial digitisation has also now started approaching the next level which is the blend of smart technology and digital processes to become not only digital but smart. And to infuse this concept of smart technology, the refrigeration industry is all geared up to welcome the smart processes and equipment to serve faster & better than ever before.

  While talking about the refrigeration industry, digital manifolds are the most obvious part of the sector that grabs our attention. And thus, being the world leader in measurement technology, Testo has introduced the technological leap in refrigeration industry with its new smart manifolds which works through an app on your smartphones or tablets making every day refrigeration tasks easier. Smartphone operation allows you to manage everything at your fingertips with the most comfortable gadget that you deal with in your everyday life.

Smart Technology – new transition

  This change from analog to smart measuring technology is particularly worthwhile for the refrigeration industry, because many different parameters, such as pressures and temperatures, along with the superheating and subcooling of the system, have to be checked here. An analog manifold is not really much help with this, as it can actually only determine high and low pressure. For every other task, you need additional instruments and accordingly more expenditure, quite apart from the laborious handling and the frequent inaccuracies of measurement (according to a study by the US public body ‘Energy Star’, up to 74% of all refrigeration systems are incorrectly adjusted using analog measuring technology*).

  In contrast, digital manifolds with app control such as the Testo 550 or the Testo 557 save you all other additional instruments and turn your smartphone or tablet into an efficient all-round tool instead. This means you can for example measure pressure and temperature values quickly and easily, or carry out a temperature- compensated tightness test, and read out the measuring values really conveniently on the smartphone, irrespective of the measuring location. Superheating and subcooling are also displayed automatically.

  Where data have until now still been analyzed by printing out the measurement protocol and laboriously saved on the PC, all measurement results can now be graphically displayed and immediately dispatched on site by e-mail - whether to the office or to the customer. And you can also update and extend the list of the most common refrigerants stored on the instrument at any time via the App. That sounds like a contemporary way of working, doesn’t it?

  As a habit to strive for more, Testo has also launched the Smart measuring instruments (known as Smart Probes) in addition to the Smart manifolds.

  The professional and compact testo 549i high-pressure measuring instrument can be controlled via the testo Smart Probes App using your smartphone or tablet, and is ideal for carrying out servicing and troubleshooting on air conditioning and refrigeration systems. The App also enables evaporation and condensation temperatures to be calculated automatically. Testo offers you greater mobility when measuring: used in conjunction with your smartphone or tablet, the handy testo 549i high-pressure measuring instrument is suitable for carrying out wireless servicing and troubleshooting on air conditioning and refrigeration systems, as well as for installing them. The measuring instrument can be set up quickly and easily, directly at the pressure connection. The testo 549i makes working on widely spaced pressure connections considerably easier thanks to wireless connection to a smartphone or tablet. Also practical: no hoses are required for measurements, meaning that no or only very little refrigerant is lost. When used in conjunction with the testo 115i clamp thermometer, individual refrigeration system parameters can also be calculated.

  Combined with a smartphone or tablet, the testo 115i clamp thermometer is the ideal temperature measuring instrument for carrying out servicing and troubleshooting on air conditioning and refrigeration systems, as well as for installing them. It can also be used to measure flow and return temperatures.

  Professional measuring technology is now mobile: when it comes to temperature measurements at widely spaced measuring points in particular, the testo 115i makes things much easier – thanks to a wireless connection to the smartphone or tablet. When used in conjunction with the testo 549i pressure measuring instrument, individual refrigeration system parameters can also be calculated.

  Let’s summarize: refrigeration system maintenance is becoming almost as easy as writing WhatsApp messages, thanks to Testo’s smart measuring technology. Because App-controlled manifolds make additional measuring instruments superfluous, streamline your entire work process and save a lot of effort as well as loads of valuable time. And your day-to-day work finally becomes part of your own smart world too.
