our omitec was ordered to complement our oniscan,shouldnt have bothered,its as slow as arseholes,no self drain on water system,takes ages to change between cat/smoke,the remote it was demoed with is an optional extra,however it has only broken down once(probably because no one uses it!)sun dga 2500 combi works a lot faster and hasnt died recently.you shouldnt have to buy from 2 seperate manufacturers just to avoid the possibility of being stuck with 2 turkeys tho...

further to the below,sun dga 2500 has died three times to date,mainly oxygen cell problems.smoke tester however is proving good-no more zero drift has exceeded the limits....

Try looking at the new T800 Gas and smoke from The Trade Group tried and tested equipment and very reliable, you can see a Demo online at http://www.garageequipment.uk.com
