Advanced Settings

From the “Manage Device” page in the App, visit the “Advanced Settings” page to view additional ways to configure your FireBoard.

You can also see this information in our Settings Tab video.

Degree Type

The FireBoard can be set to report temperatures in Fahrenheit (°F) or Celsius (°C). The default setting is Fahrenheit.

Smart Temp Filter

The Smart Temp filter was designed to filter out any interference/noise that is occasionally experienced with sensitive probes like RTD PT-100. When this is enabled, FireBoard will filter out drastic temperature swings. Enabled by default, be sure to disable this feature if you are wanting to test response times of your probes or are conducting an accuracy test.

Screen Contrast

Adjust the screen contrast to suit your preference.

Please note that the screen on the FireBoard 2 Series has a very limited contrast range, and you will likely not see a noticeable difference if adjusted.

Backlight/LED Timeout

Available for the FireBoard 2 Series. When toggled on, the backlight and LED lights on your FireBoard will turn off after 10 minutes of inactivity. The screen will continue to display data. Simply move the FireBoard to reactivate the lights and reset the timer.

Probe Configuration

Each channel can be configured based on the probe that is attached to it.

To check your probe configuration:

From here, you can configure each probe channel.

Probe Type

FireBoard 2, FireBoard 2 Drive, and the original FireBoard (FBX11 series) supports multiple probe types: RTD PT-100, 100K Thermistor, and 10K Thermistor. By default, this is set to 100K Thermistor. If you use a probe type other than 100K Thermistor, be sure to configure your FireBoard probe type (above) for accurate readings. See the Probes section for more information about probe types.

The FireBoard 2 Pro only supports Type-K Thermocouple probes.

Calibration Offset

Each FireBoard is calibrated in our lab and should provide accurate readings to within ±0.7°F. If you find a need to modify the factory calibration, the reading from each channel can be adjusted +/- in units of degrees, offset from the factory calibration. To return to factory calibration, simply enter “0”.

We do not recommend calibrating a thermometer outside of a laboratory environment.
