Digital multimeter prize draw

Testo will be offering visitors to our stand the chance to win a testo 760-2 Digital Multimeter – this great prize takes automatic measurement to the next level. This digital multimeter is suitable for all important electrical measurements.

 

Win a test 760-2 Digital Multimeter worth £99.00

 

New lower pricing

New pricing is being announced at PHEX with Testo making high quality thermal imaging and electrical testing more affordable than ever.

 

  • Thermal imaging cameras for heating and plumbing starting at £699.
  • Electrical multimeters starting at £59

 

With the testo 865 camera now available from just £699, heating engineers who want to diagnose where and how pipework or underfloor heating systems have been laid, locate leaks on pipework, and many other tasks within heating system diagnosis, now have the perfect tool for the job.

 

A clear, high resolution thermal image is essential for many heating plumbing applications, especially locating water leaks. Testo 865 provides the highest resolution image available in this price range due to the 160 x 120 sensor with thermal sensitivity of just 0.12°C. The Testo 865 camera allows the user to quickly and easily prove the performance of heating systems and offers a simple way save time in many areas of application.

 

Testo are also showing the range of electrical test instruments designed with the HVAC engineer in mind. From the Testo 760-1 which offers possibly the simplest to use multimeter on the market, with its innovative ‘input detection’ system making it less likely that a user will set the incorrect input for the testing being carried out, through to the Testo 770-3 clampmeter which offers all the usual functions of a DMM but also offers commercial heating engineers the ability of fast testing of FFD’s on gas burners via its µA current range setting. Additionally, the Testo 770-3 offers a Bluetooth connection to the free Testo ‘smart’ App allowing display of parameters via a smartphone or tablet device, and simple on-site reporting of measurements

Testo at PlumbExpo 2018

This year at PlumbExpo testo will have a selection of popular instruments on display. Visit our stand P124 to get hands on with the instruments and to see and feel the quality. Come and have a chat to our expert team who can help answer any questions you may have about our products and their applications.

 

Win a testo Smart Probes Heating Set

We are giving visitors to PlumbExpo a chance to win a testo Smart Probes Heating Set worth £185 just by heading over to the Testo stand P124 and putting your details into the draw – the winner will be announced shortly after the show closes on the 1st February.

The compact testo Smart Probes Heating set with the testo 115i clamp thermometer, the testo 510i differential pressure measuring instrument and the testo 805i infrared thermometer is ideal for key measuring tasks carried out by heating engineers.

 

What’s on show?

 

The testo 320 Flue Gas Analyser

Visit the Testo stand to see the new testo 320 Flue Gas Analyser. Designed to provide the domestic engineer with all the functionality to provide a complete heating system diagnosis, the testo 320 Flue Gas Analyser has a colour graphic display, providing a unique user interface experience to allow simple access to measurement menus for flue gas analysis, draught measurement, pressure, ambient CO measurement, letby & tightness testing, and many more. Use the testo 320 to quickly determine and eliminate malfunctions, monitor legal limit values and spot checks in daily work on servicing heating systems.

The testo 320 Flue Gas Analyser comes as standard with Bluetooth communication to android devices such as a smartphone or tablet device using the Testo Combustion App. This allows users to control the analyser remotely, view graphical data on set parameters, and also provide fast and efficient reports on measurements direct from site via email.

The Testo 320 can also be equipped with optional probes to provide the abilty to carry out gas leak detection on pipework, and also if required measurement of ambient CO & CO2 values.

To keep the total lifetime costs of using a flue gas analyser to a minimum, Testo Service and Calibration is available from our UKAS (ISO/IEC 17025:2005) accredited laboratory and comes with simpler pricing. Choose from two service options- Pure and Premium. With Premium level service users of Testo analysers get a true ‚fixed cost‘ service and calibration offering, which for the testo 320 model is £139 per year and includes all sensors, service parts required, and carriage.

 

Our award winning Smart Probes and Thermal Imaging Cameras

Smartphones and tablets make our day-to-day life easier in almost every situation, so why can’t this apply to contractors’ measurement tasks? That’s precisely what Testo’s product developers asked themselves – and the result was the Smart Probes range. Eight pocket-sized professional  measuring instruments which can be connected to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth and are operated entirely via the free Smart Probes App. Each instrument has been designed for it’s own specific application, measuring temperature, humidity, pressure or air velocity. Competitively priced, Testo Smart Probes are the ideal instruments for HVAC contractors with an enthusiasm for technology.

Also on show will be our thermal imaging cameras, Testo 865, Testo 868, Testo 871 and Testo 872, designed for many applications within the buildings and electrical trades for fast identification of faults and problems such as overheating electrical connections and wiring, tracing hot water pipework, leak detection, and many others. With some models offering WiFi connection to a smartphone or tablet device this allows users to provide fast and efficient reports from site via email.

 

Our latest range of electrical test instruments

The testo 760 Digital multimeter makes day to day testing of voltage, current, and resistance simple, with its innovative operation that uses automatic recognition of test lead position to then set the parameter to be measured. Unlike traditional multimeters that use a rotary style dial to set a parameter, the testo 760 ensures that the engineer does not mismatch the test lead position to the required input, and if an incorrect setting is applied the instrument will prompt the engineer with a warning message on the display and not allow the parameter selection. This feature enhances the safety when using a multimeter as it helps prevent damage to the instrument through incorrect input selection.

For engineers who require simple measurement of current values in day to day tasks the testo 770 Clampmeter offers a fast and simple way to measure both AC & DC currents without having to break the circuit. With a unique clamp mechanism that allows the user to select a cable for testing even in the narrowest spaces, the testo 770 combines a clampmeter design with the added functionality of a DMM.

As well as the current clamp, the testo 770 can measure AC/DC voltage, resistance, and continuity using the supplied test leads just like a standard DMM. For heating engineers, the testo 770-2/3 versions offer a μA measuring range enabling fast testing of FFD’s on gas burners. Additionally, the testo 770-3 offers a Bluetooth connection to the free Testo ‘smart’ App allowing display of parameters via a smartphone or tablet device, and simple on-site reporting of measurements.
