Presentation Transcript
  • HVAC/R specialized (17 years)
    • Needs are different
    • Minor market for our competitors
adolfo wurts
Adolfo Wurts
  • BSME from Cal Poly Pomona
    • Specializing in HVAC/R
  • Fieldpiece Employee for 6 years
  • Spoken with 100s of HVAC professionals
  • Developed Field Guide based on direct HVACR technician input
fieldpiece products
Fieldpiece Products
  • New product ideas come from HVAC technicians
  • Measure success: make the HVAC/R tech’s job easier, faster, safer, and/or better
  • Result: Fieldpiece is the leader in HVAC/R
fieldpiece parameters tested
Fieldpiece Parameters Tested
  • Test most HVAC/R parameters
modularity example superheat
Modularity Example: Superheat
  • ARH4 to get Target Superheat
  • ASX24 to get Actual Superheat
trends increased attention to conservation
Trends: Increased Attention to Conservation
  • Increased attention to conservation
  • Nobody wants another power plant
    • Not the government
    • NIMBY
    • Not the power companies
trends large portion of energy going to hvac
Trends: Large portion of Energy Going to HVAC
  • 11.1% of US electricity costs are for HVAC (residential and commercial, DOE 2001 data)
    • This doesn’t count combustion for heating
  • Huge energy savings potential
trends higher seer mandates
Trends: Higher SEER Mandates
  • High SEER equipment being installed
  • Most A/Cs running at 50-80% of rated efficiency
  • High SEER systems are more complicated
trends government s increased interest
Trends: Government’s Increased Interest
  • Title 24
    • CA standard for AC service
    • Superheat chart
    • Target evaporator exit temperature
new fieldpiece products to improve efficiency
New Fieldpiece Products to Improve Efficiency
  • Superheat and Subcooling heads
    • Evolution of products
  • AOX2 combustion check
benefits of modularity
Benefits of Modularity
  • One Display and many accessories
    • Use DMM functions (Hold, min/max, etc.)
  • Easy to inexpensively expand
  • Use it your way
    • Stick meter
    • Electronic handle
    • Data logger
    • Remote it
bright idea field guide
Bright Idea: Field Guide
  • Requires less technical competency
  • Easy to use, step by step direction
  • Fast, clear clean
  • More tests will actually be performed
tests currently available
Tests Currently Available
  • Target Evaporator Exit Temp
