    Digital thermometer adaptor

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All

    I just installed one of these group head thermometers in to my Isomac Teh-Ah should be handy for my cooling shot.

    At least now I will have some idea as to my water temp at the group so it should be interesting to see just how hot the Teh-Ah runs. :o :o ;D

    Cheers Gra..

    Well with the unit giving me my group head temperature I now know when its ready to pull a shot after warm up which is around 35 min,the group head runs at 97-98* when I do a cooling flush it raises to 101* then I let it drops down to 97* and pull the shot this is in line with Erics test result which puts the temp at 92* at the puck.

    After installation I knocked back my boiler pressure to 1.2 from around 1.5 out of the box this has not made any difference to my steaming capabilities but if you where to go much lower it would take bit longer to steam milk.

    As for in the cup I must say that my shot have improved heaps in "taste :P" and consistency I am very happy with my purchase

    Cheers Gra ;D ;D.

    Re: Digital thermometer adaptor


    Hmmm.... would it be better to have logging of the temps?

    Im thinking that we could source the adaptor for a multimeter probe and then you could use the CS software to log it over the day (in something like 5-10 second plots)

    Interesting.

    ::)

    I like the way you think Andy 8-)

    I wonder if it will talk to my Scace using the old original adaptor shipped with USB multimeter??

    The Fluke thermometer I have (at megabucks) and its associated software (rubbish and also at megabucks) only saves the data but doesnt log it in real time....

    Your thoughts?
