Setting Up a Reading Offset

« Go Back


This feature can be used across all of our devices if using Sensor Cloud,  The "Reading Offset" field can be used to adjust a temperature you know is being influenced incorrectly. If you are looking for calibration you will want to purchase NIST calibration services.
Example Scenario
Your sensor near the exhaust of your cooler. This causes the device to pick up all the excess hot air resulting in a reading that is always 6 degrees higher than the actual cooler temperature.  You can apply an offset of -6 to remedy this problem.  This would decrease all temperature readings by the device by 6 degrees.
