Robinair says it has released its new R-ID and R-ID Plus refrigerant analyzers, enabling technicians to quickly and accurately determine the refrigerant purity of a vehicle’s A/C system.
The R-ID and R-ID Plus Refrigerant Analyzers are designed for use on vehicles with either R-134a or the newer R-1234yf refrigerant.
Powered by an internal lithium ion battery, the R-ID and R-ID Plus measure the percentage of R-1234yf, R-134a, R-12 refrigerants, as well as R-22 and hydrocarbon contaminants. An optional R-12 hose is required for technicians to be able to test R-12 refrigerant. The analyzers also measure the percent air in pure R-1234yf and R-134a refrigerants, the company says.
Robinair says the tools are certified to the SAE J2912 standard and can connect directly to any SAE J2843 or J3030 A/C service machine with an external USB port. Each device has a large, color display that shows analysis results and helps technicians determine the next step of an A/C system service.
The R-ID Plus refrigerant analyzer is equipped with the same features and functionality as the R-ID refrigerant analyzer but also prints final test results.
