After adding that comment to the previous post it struck me that was the case. As you mention, it's a huge improvement on having power reduced when you least want it.

Might just try going straight to P3 at First Crack next time. That's what I get for taking a few months off from roasting.
Seriously considering the HeatSnob option for better monitoring when experimenting.
BTW just noticed this Facelift on the Behmor site-

Moved these posts here from the HeatSnob Temperature Data Logger Thermocouple and Roast Monitor USB software thread to keep the other thread useful.
You can also easily monitor bean temp if thatís what you want to play with, through the spindle using the bead thermocouple. I did a post on it here ages ago. Works well and no permanent holes (except the spindle).
Interesting option for roast temp measurement. Thought I'd include the link for this here to make it easier to find for anyone else interested in your mod. Refer to post #24 in the thread - https://coffeesnobs.com.au/roasters/...tml#post578429

Great bit of innovation guys.
Thanks Andy, your reply helped.

Surprising as the probe was brand new (brought as a spare 6-9months ago) but the Heatsnob unit is secondhand. I swapped my working Heatsnob and the second hand Heatsnob around and same issue with the 25mm probe. Swapped the probe for a bead thermocouple and reads find now. In fact Iím surprised in the reduction in air temp when the fan kicks in at 5minute mark (200gm setting) into the roast
I did not know the mobile phone being too close to the Behmor would affect the graph/computer... ! I've always had mine near it while roasting but never had any strange spikes like that.... unless every single profile I've had has been a dud (it's possible!)
Wasn’t a constant issue but seemed to happy more if was watching a video for instance, can’t remember if mobile data or wifi changed the efffect thought
More likely if you were sending data rather than receiving it, might cause an issue...
I was experiencing quite a bit of noise with an old faithful t/c that I had been using for many years.
Decided to replace it with one of Andy's shielded units, and the noise? Just disappeared.
EMR noise can be a bugger to eliminate completely though, especially if you have a significant length of the t/c cable exposed and unshielded. I imagine though that you are using one of the CS shielded units, if you bought it from Andy...
Couldn't see this anywhere re Roast Monitor:
Are the outputs from the "heat" and "air" sliders sent to a coms port and if so in what format? EG can I access them to externally control the heat source for a roaster?
Sliders are there just to annotate the graph.
