Question For The Electric Gurus :)
Again, thank you all and all have a great weekend. I will plug the items in bold into the UPS, and simply connect the other stuff to my dynex surge protector.Hopefully that one UPS I have will be enough to power Members-Only Guarantees Become a Home Inspector Boost Your Existing Business Over $75,000 Worth of Additional Benefits... I was going to suggest that, but am unsure if the probe is waterproof or not and did not want to be responsible if it isn't. http://robotadv.com/question-for/question-for-any-and-all-tech-gurus-out-there-easy-one-too.html

Although they do retain power, they should drop on their own over long periods of time. PJ Tony21-11-2015, 10:55 AMThanks everyone for all your suggestions. The equipment I worked on was always mains powered & the Zero point could be adjusted. some sensors are resistance types where even 1 ohm is about 10 degree change in temp, so adding cable can have an effect on the readout.
My guess from my experience with temperature probes in my pottery kiln is that the wire is no longer the correct length for the sensor/display combo. There will still be a slight delay when the water temp changes, but it will be surrounded by hot water. All times are GMT-5. Ideally the sensor should be inside the tank, or else in the pipe measuring water temperature directly, this could be achieved using a T piece and suitable gland fitting.
The point though is that when the system first went in it was accurate as far as I know. It was supposed to be a one for one replacement. Quick name a material that blocks magnetism...... When an induction motor is energized, the resistance of the windings is the total resistance for the load, which is why Induction motors have a large current flow until the CEMF
MOST (not all) motors cause lagging PF. go to: http://www.ampilizer.com Thanks in advance! Paul W. the mercury thermometer though.
But maybe use a secondary pipe to fit/adapt sensor, and swap it out with what you have now - then back if need be.

(Though their board layout could probably be improved upon). Terry Porritt20-11-2015, 08:17 PMBefore discarding the present system, I'd suggest improving the thermal contact between sensor and pipe. All electrical items do need surge, as Alan said.
There are no visible identifying marks on the display unit. his comment is here PO BOX 61664Fort Myers, FL. 33906239-936-7579E-Mail: [email protected]~~~~~CB-C025051Building Inspections since 1993www.swflhomeinspection.com Fred Sylvester View Public Profile Send a private message to Fred Sylvester Visit Fred Sylvester's Web site Find all posts by I'll certainly try the check vs. I don't think I can install another wired version without having visible wires all over the place, which is why I was floating the idea of a wireless solution if one

I plead guilty.
If you are a business with many motors and so on then power correction can be important if you have a poor factor already and charged a fine for it...basically a So I don't "need" to measure it, but it is certainly useful having the display there.

So unless its the same part no from the same manufacturer ....All of those may be true (although I don't think it is cheap and nasty). Years ago manufacturing plants with huge inductive loads would install capacitive motors to bring their overall inductive power factor towards a resistive power factor and their electric bill would go down Induction motors require two or more magnetic fields in order to operate. navigate here I would only UPS protect the equipment in bold.

However, PF correction capacitors are measured in kilo-Volt-Amperes-reactive (aka kVAr). Apparently you know little about inductive loads.. Terry Porritt23-11-2015, 07:12 PMYour main problem is that the mounting method of the sensor is Mickey Mouse to say the least.

I did it with a power supply, and a screwdriver to the case of the PS. go to: http://www.ampilizer.com Thanks in advance!
Asynchronous motors cause leading PF. Tony23-11-2015, 09:15 PMI do really appreciate all the suggestions, and the whole discussion has been very interesting, but I need to repeat a few things: The way the probe is mounted Just admit it and move on. Must bow down to your knowledge of conserving energy however as you conserve it all day /everyday.
