DST-800PSF Smart Sensor Temp Anomaly

DST-800PSF Smart Sensor Temp Anomaly

Postby Yeti » Sun Jul 17, 2016 9:37 am

Data is reading ~120 F.

Given our temperature in Puget Sound averages around 55 F., I know this can't be correct. I've searched the menu for a calibration function but without out any luck. Am I missing something here, or is the sensor on the fritz?

If the smart sensor is putting out incorrect data, you should see if you can correct it in the display unit by applying an offset. It also could be the device you are using has an incorrectly applied offset. If you find you can't correct it, then the DST-800PSF would have to be replaced.

Thanks, Johnny.

I guess I should have mentioned that my data display instrument is a FI-503. In looking on the web, it appears there is an "offset" adjustment in the menu (which I never could find). I'll give it another wack.

I've got a DT-200 (Same thing but without speed) and the temp has gone nuts on it too. Searching around, it seems to be a very common problem.
