New Parker Sporlan SMART Service Tools Wins AHR Expo Innovation Award; Read, Record and Export HVAC/R System Temperatures, Pressures Faster and Easier

Sporlan Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, wins the AHR Expo Innovation Award with the SMART Service Tools that display, record and export HVAC/R system temperatures, pressures, superheat and subcooling using a free app.


SMART Service Tools are lightweight wireless sensors that conveniently sync with a mobile device app, enabling you to read a system’s real-time pressures and temperatures without using cumbersome hoses or manifold gauges.

Leveraging an existing smartphone or tablet, this wireless system frees the contractors to monitor system performance anywhere within Bluetooth range, minimizing charge loss and cleanup by eliminating hoses, ­and minimizing unnecessary steps between system components and equipment. The free app automatically displays superheat and subcooling eliminating manual calculations. All of this data can be easily recorded, saved and emailed providing proof of work.

«The sensors can be easily attached to the refrigeration unit. Once the app is activated, the pressures and temperatures will be displayed right on your smart phone or tablet. It’s that quick,” said Matt Wehmeyer, Sporlan Electronics Product Manager.
