Fieldpiece Instruments Introduces the Largest Pipe Clamps on the Market

Orange, Calif., October 13, 2020 – Fieldpiece Instruments, HVACR tools and test instruments specialist, announces the launch of the largest jaw pipe clamps for the HVACR industry, the wired TC48 and the wireless system JL3LC. With an unprecedented 4 1/8” jaw opening the new pipe clamps are perfect for commercial and refrigeration field service professionals and also serve the residential market.  The clamps, sporting a ¾” to 4 1/8” range, can be used on a wide variety of pipe sizes, especially in large commercial and refrigeration applications.

The new pipe clamps incorporate Fieldpiece-patented Rapid RailTM Sensor Technology making the response time to get an accurate temperature reading merely seconds, thereby enabling the HVACR pro to be more productive.  With this proprietary technology, temperature readings are not affected by ambient air as the thermocouple is thermally isolated and the clamps will perform immediate reaction to changes in system adjustments as the technician is working. This can greatly facilitate taking a superheat and/or subcooling measurement on most commercial refrigeration appliances or commercial/residential air conditioners.

“It may not seem like a big problem, but field service professionals have a tough time getting good readings on larger pipes. Fieldpiece offers these two new solutions to that problem with our large 4 1/8” jaw-opening clamps,” said Tony Gonzalez, Fieldpiece Technical TrainingManager. “Other pipe temperature tools on the market use straps or tape to hold the thermocouple on the pipe. Place our rugged pipe clamps and they will stay put making it easy to get instant, accurate readings.”

The versatile clamps fit virtually anywhere they need to and offer a secure connection even on wet or damp pipes. They are compact, and have an easy-to-open design that allows for quick single-handed placement.

When used with the Fieldpiece Job Link mobile app, the JL3LC makes it easy to record and share data. Their compatibility with Job Link means that the data can be displayed in a professional report to be emailed to the customer or home office. In addition, the JL3LC leverages a strong wireless system. Measurements are sent up to 350’ away directly to a mobile device with the Job Link App, and the JL3LC also works seamlessly with the Fieldpiece SMANs, models SM380V and SM480V. The wireless signal is able to penetrate even the thick walls of walk-in coolers and freezers.

Included with the TC48 Large Pipe Clamp Type K Thermocouple is a long 6’ kink-free cable and an Emery Cloth for Cleaning Pipes. The Job Link® System Premium Large Pipe Clamp Probe includes the probe, batteries, and an Emery Cloth for Cleaning Pipes.

The trade price for the TC48 is $99.00 and the JL3LC is $146.00. They are available at distributors now. For more information about the TC48 and JL3LC please visit, or call us at 714.634.1844.

Fieldpiece Instruments Introduces an Easier Way to Measure Static and Gas Pressure with New Job Link® System Wireless Manometer

Orange, Calif., April 2, 2020 — Fieldpiece Instruments, the only company solely dedicated to creating tools and test instruments for HVACR professionals, introduces a new dual-port wireless manometer that works with the Fieldpiece Job Link® System App for taking pressure measurements quickly and easily. The JL3KM2 dual-port manometer allows the HVACR professional to document readings in the Job Link® System app from up to 350 feet away.

The Fieldpiece Job Link® System app is a robust app used with compatible HVACR test instruments for troubleshooting, diagnosing, and evaluating HVACR systems.  Because the probes are not tethered – single, dual, and multi-port measurements are not limited by the length of the hose and can be placed in the perfect locations on the system (multi-port will be available this summer). The measurements are more accurate because the probes can be placed behind closed doors and in tight locations.

Technicians can take inlet gas pressure, outlet gas pressure, and total external static pressure of a furnace with multiple probes hooked up and view them all at the same time in the Job Link® System App. An indicator switch on the manometer automatically tells the Job Link System which side is being tested with the color-code switch (Blue is for P1 and Red is for P2). View real-time return static, supply static, and total external static pressure all at once with just two probes. The  system allows for up to eight individual manometers at one time in the Job Link App. This is helpful when measuring real-time pressure drops between blowers, filters, and coils with multiple probes (more than two readings up to eight will be available this summer). The results will display at the same time on the mobile device using Job Link® System App.

“Pair these probes with the other Job Link Probes and you have a powerful set of tools that give you a total snapshot of the equipment all in a small form factor,” said Russ Harju, Product Manager Fieldpiece Instruments. Harju added, “We made these tools so easy to deploy at a job site that there is no excuse not to measure your static pressure at every job.”

Other features include a rugged housing; sturdy, rotating magnet to hold the manometer in place; gas adapter and static pressure accessory comes standard; and strong metal barb tips. In addition, the JL3MN measurements can be zeroed on the tool itself so there is no fumbling with the app.

The JL3MN is sold as a single pack and includes the JL3MN, slide-on Gas Adapter, extra hose with Brass Screw Fitting, and a Static Pressure Probe. The JL3KM2 is a double pack dual manometer and includes two JL3MNs, a case, two slide-on Gas Adapters, extra hose with two Brass Screw Fittings, and two Static Pressure Probes.

The trade price for the JL3MN is $124.00 and the JL3KM2 is $183.00. They are available at distributors now. For more information about the JL3MN and JL3KM2 please visit the product page through this link, or call us at 714.634.1844.
