General Care of Temperature Probes

General Care of Temperature Probes

The Probe is where most of the action with any Thermometer takes place. Almost every operation requires a Probe reading.  The Probe should be treated with care in order to ensure best functioning and long life.

We would recommend that you always have a spare, properly functioning Probe on hand, just in case the primary Probe breaks, or appears to be reading incorrectly.

You should not stretch the coiled cable of any Probe, to reach an item to be measured. We would recommend instead that you ALWAYS move BOTH the Probe and the Thermometer, toward the food to be measured. This will help avoid unnecessary stress on the wires inside the Probe.

You should not touch the coiled cable or Probe handle to hot surfaces, that might melt the protective coatings, which in turn could damage the Probe wires and render the Probe inoperable.

You should not bend the tip of any Penetration Probe, as this too could break the wires and render the Probe inoperable. In general, Penetration Probes are designed for penetrating thawed food only and not for testing frozen food or containers or chipping ice.

Probe

You should clean the Probe and wire coil with a clean damp cloth, being VERY careful not to pull or stretch the coil and damage the wires inside.

My Device is showing unrealistic temperature readings

My Device is showing unrealistic temperature readings

If you have set up your Device correctly, inserted a Sub-Miniature Connector Probe into your Device and taken a temperature reading, only to discover that the temperature recorded is vastly different to that which was expected, then it may be that the Probe Connector was in fact inserted incorrectly.

The Sub-Miniature Connector on all Comark Probes has two prongs, one slightly larger than the other. These prongs are also marked as positive (+) and negative (-) on the cable head itself, as shown below.

Sub_Min_Right_Way_Round_c

The prongs correspond to two similarly shaped slots on the Device, one slightly larger than the other.

In some cases, it may be possible to force the prongs of the Sub-Miniature Cable Connector in the wrong way around. If this is done then the symptoms would be as described above, recorded temperatures that are vastly different to those which were expected.

Sub_Min_Wrong_Way_Round_c

To resolve such an issue, simply unplug the Sub-Miniature Cable Connector, check the prong orientation and then re-insert.

  • Small Slot = Positive
  • Large Slot = Negative
