Hi, The micro CD-100 requires no calibration other than that done at regular start up. If the sensor should fail, the sensor (Catalog Part #31948) can be replaced by a RIDGID Independent Authorized Service Center. If you need more assistance please call 888-743-4333.

I have just looked at the technical specifications of R600 refrigerant and it states that it is iso-Butane. Checking this against the flammable gases detected - detailed in the device specifications it includes iso - Butane. Dave.

Mine came with the case in a cardboard box. I guess the other version is in plastic and no case. You can really go to the hardware store and pick up a suitable case.

Superb multi gas detector that reacts instantly to warn of gas presence.
The speed of reaction took me by surprise, it really is instantaneous as you can see for yourself in the accompanying video. It will also detect a wide range of gases and solvents. The first gas the unit detected was butane and the second was propane. The controls are logical, well laid out and easy to use. The addition of a mute button for the audible output is welcomed and the vibrate function is good and strong. Start up and self-calibration takes about a minute and the long flexible sensor is easily positioned and stiff enough to stay put. The plastic body is good quality but the battery compartment cover was very stiff and I had to leverage the clasp using a pair of pliers to get it open. I guess this is because potential sparks from batteries and certain gases don’t mix very well. In other words a safety feature! The readout screen is very clear and the gas detection bars represent detection rates from 40 parts per million (ppm) to 6,400 ppm. There is a CD in the kit containing the operations manual in 22 different languages. The full multi language manual can also be downloaded too. The manual and the gas detector fit snugly inside the protective cover that also has belt loops so the tool is always near to hand.

I manage Luxury Real Estate in Greenwich Ct. the realtor called me into an $8 Million dollar home on a report of an odor. They thought it was a dead misuse or something? I traced it to a gas manifold hidden behind a cabinet in the basement with 12 shutoff valves one for every gas appliance in the home. I turned my meter on and not only confirmed the presence of has but with the probe I was able to identify the exact pipe out of 12 that was leaking? Called the FD Who brought in their $8000 meter and confirmed what my $400 Rigid meter had identified! Completely saved the day and avoided a major tragedy!!!
