A new portable hand-held meter from Parker Hannifin Corp. provides portable maintenance and diagnostic data for hydraulics and pneumatics. The SensoControl Diagnostic Serviceman Plus features Parker’s “plug and play” automatic sensor recognition that immediately scales the measurement range, eliminating confusing and time-consuming setup routines. 

With a scan rate of 1 ms and the ability to measure pressure, flow, temperature, and RPM (rotations per minute), Serviceman Plus is versatile for use with mobile and industrial systems. 

The meter was designed to aid in the diagnostics and troubleshooting of everyday hydraulic and pneumatic problems.

All measurements captured on the Serviceman Plus hand-held meter can be stored on a nano USB drive, or transferred to a PC for convenient analysis and documentation using the SensoWin software provided with the meter.

Other features include a robust design with an oil-resistant rubber protective cover for use in harsh or challenging conditions; IP67-rated protection in extreme conditions; large back-lit display for easy, quick readings in low light; rear panel integrated support for free-standing operation; intuitive operation; and min/max memory and differential measurements. 

The meter measures 4 in. x 7 in. x 2 in. including the protective cover. It operates on a rechargeable 3.7-volt lithium ion battery. 

Two versions are available: an analog version with two analog inputs, and a CAN version that supports up to three CAN sensors at one time.
