Odd, because for the first time EVER there’s NO hard wired digital controller. In order to use the Wey-Tek HD you first have to download a Free App from the App or Google Play Store, to a smart-phone or tablet.
Once downloaded simply pair the device via Bluetooth. Select your preferred measurement scale and away you go. I have to admit, I was impressed watching the scales react instantly on my phone as I applied and released pressure to the wireless platform.
The platform is a nice looking solid piece of kit with two easily accessible soft keys
and it’s showerproof as long as you don’t leave it in the case, If the case fills with water it will enter the battery compartment on underside of the platform causing irreparable damage.
Small cylinders fit perfectly on the platform but large cylinders only just. Not an ideal scales if you use large cylinders regularly, but for the odd occasion it’s adequate.
The scale is controlled by the easy to use APP, you can select weights in pounds/ounces, kilograms/grams, decimal pounds, or ounces only. Set specific charge weights that will trigger your phone to alarm once reached. That’s the benefit of a 30ft bluetooth range as you don’t have to stand over the scales watching it charge. It even has a low flow alarm that sounds if the refrigerant weight hasn’t changed more than 30 grams in two minutes.
The App has a job log feature once selected will record a log containing the site name, amount of gas transferred, date and time etc. These can then be emailed.
You need to download the operating manual for full details of these features as the scales only comes with a basic quick use guide, but it’s worth downloading.
There is no specific ipad APP just use the iphone version on your iPad and there’s no plans for a windows phone APP.
Plastic case catches could be better quality but they are replaceable under the 2 year manufacturers warranty.
Optional handset available but doesn’t offer all the features you get with the APP and it costs an extra £100.00 so not really an optional extra worth considering.
