I know that an ad company did the pic, but you'd think someone at Richie would have caught it before they published it.

    Fancy digital gauge, never seen one before, I only have the 2 old round pressure gauges on mine that I bought in early 80's.

    What's wrong...... in graph P1 ( low side I assume) time plot is dropping initially , but what I assume is actual thermocouple temp T1 plot has a spike that doesn't correspond to P1 pressure plot ???

    I see the digital gauge says “R-1234YF” in the corner, and yet he’s connected to a keg of R-134a. Seems like it may cause an issue

    That's what we call a TSU.

    On the one hand, I do wish Marketing would run these kind of things pas a few field guys, on the other hand they can be very entertaining from time to time.

    Hope there is a good long warranty on that compressor. Guess he has it connected to a walk in freezer.
