Like all of Fieldpiece's test instruments, the SRL2 Infrared Refrigerant Leak Detector is designed exclusively to make the HVACR Technician's job easier, faster, safer and more efficient. Fieldpiece set out to develop the best refrigerant leak detector for HVACR and now it comes in kit form in a rugged, blow-moulded case with all of the extras (see What's Included).
The ergonomic design fits naturally in your hand. The ruggedized construction stands up to abuse most other leak detectors can't handle. The eight-hour battery life lets you work all day before recharging and the included vehicle and wall chargers help you during overtime. The mute and peak functions allow you to work the way you want to work. The magnetic hanger helps keep the detector out of the way when repairing a leak, but visible enough so you won't leave it on the job.
The SRL2 triggers on a change in refrigerant levels as refrigerant passes by the sensor. Infrared (or IR) sensors work on the principle that refrigerants reflect a certain spectrum of light that is “below red” or infrared. When refrigerant is drawn into the sensor, it travels between a light/heat source and a sensor that is constantly receiving a “picture” of that light.
Like a cloud that reflects solar radiation and “blocks” out the sun, the refrigerant reflects the infrared radiation and blocks the sensor from receiving the complete picture. The result is a trigger. However, after the “picture” stays the same for a while, the sensor no longer senses a change and the triggering stops. This is important.
IR sensors act almost exactly like the motion sensors that trigger your neighbor’s blinding garage lights outside. The outside sensors are taking a picture of a designated area. When someone walks into that picture a change is detected. The light turns on. If you stand in the same place without moving, eventually the light turns off until you move again.
Because of this unique sensor, IR detectors that sense change are used differently from the more commonly used heated element detectors. You have to use a double-pass or sweeping motion to pinpoint a leak, meaning, you pass by a refrigerant “stream” it blocks out light to the sensor and triggers. Then you sweep back, and it triggers again. The midpoint is the source of the leak.
The SRL2 essentially reacts to all refrigerants the same, meaning it triggers on R-507 the same way it does on R-22. The SRL2 has sensitivity equal to or better than heated element detectors and sensitivity can be adjusted to react like heated elements using the Turbo Mode (see manual) function.
Simply put, the SRL2 reacts to all refrigerants the same way. If the refrigerant used in the system is in the refrigerant IR spectrum, the detector is going to find it.
Why Infrared Technology?
Infrared sensors by far are the longest-lasting leak detection sensors on the HVACR market today. Fieldpiece have improved the technology so that, with normal use, your SRL2 Infrared Refrigerant Leak Detector should last for the life of the instrument (UP TO 10 YEARS in testing.)
