The Digital Advantage

When you decide to retire your analog gauge and move to a digital manifold, you will quickly discover all kinds of efficiencies and advantages.

First, your measurements will be more accurate. You will also be able to get more work done in one day, which means more calls completed and more income for you!

One question we regularly receive is how to protect your digital manifold investment. One simple, but often overlooked action is always check your grounds. Before you put your manifold to metal, check that your grounds are set and clean. It is especially important to check the outlet/incoming power. Improper ground is dangerous for your new manifold, but more importantly it is dangerous for you! Make sure you are always safe on every call.
