When you choose the installation location for the probe, consider the following:
- Verify the operating environment specification of the probe model. The probe head typically has a much wider operating temperature range than the probe body.
- If the temperature of the measured environment differs greatly from ambient temperature, the entire probe head and preferably plenty of cable must be inside the measured environment. This prevents measurement inaccuracy caused by heat conduction along the cable.
- Probe mounting options are model-specific.
