Recent studies suggest that over half of the AC systems in operation in the U.S. are undercharged or overcharged. This causes decreased efficiency, and sometimes, premature compressor failure. The Fieldpiece Superheat Accessory for Air Conditioning – model ASH3 measures suction line, or low side, line temperature and pressure and calculates ACTUAL superheat in real time. Use it to get ACTUAL superheat on R-22 and R-410A fixed orifice systems. On systems regulated with a TXV / TEV you’ll want to look at our ASX14, ASX24 and SSX34 superheat and subcooling instruments. Use the “T” fitting to charge to actual superheat by putting the ASH3 in-line between your refrigerant bottle and the system.
How Does it Work?
Finding ACTUAL superheat is easy with the ASH3. Simply hook it up to the system, let the system stabilise, and get your actual superheat in real time. No charts, no calculations. It’s all done for you in the instrument.
The ASH3 measures refrigerant pressure and temperature simultaneously. It then calculates and displays actual superheat on your meter or electronic handle. It has a 1/4” industry standard fitting for actual pressure. An advanced pipe clamp k-type thermocouple model ATC1 is included for actual line temperature. Select R22 or R410A. Select English or Metric units.
Designed for HVAC/R, the Superheat Accessory for Air Conditioning – model ASH3 measures refrigerant pressure and temperature and calculates superheat for two refrigerants in English or metric units.
|Operating environment||32ºF to 122ºF; 0ºC to 50ºC at <75%RH
Allow ~5 min. for ASH3 to come to ambient temp.
|Storage environment||-4ºF to 140ºF; 0ºC to 50ºC at <80%RH with battery removed from meter.|
|Battery life||25 hours typical. No measurable current draw when in "off" position.|
|Low battery indication||Red LED lights|
|Auto off||Approx. 15 minutes|
|Overloads||The ASH3 outputs 3.4V when temperature or pressure is outside of their working range (overloaded). For ranges below 3400mVDC, the normal overload symbol will be displayed on the meter (“OL” or depending in the meter). For ranges above 3400mVDC, reading displayed will be approximately 3.4VDC.|
