Operations

This section will provide you with operation information for the FireBoard 2 Series: the FireBoard 2 and the FireBoard 2 Drive. Make sure you’ve followed the steps to create your FireBoard account and activate your FireBoard.

For the purposes of this guide, the top of the FireBoard has the FireBoard logo and the bottom has the probe and charging ports; however, the screen is responsive and will rotate 180°.

You can access information about your device by holding any button for two seconds then pressing the button next to “Info” on the screen. Press any button to navigate away from the Info screen.

The FireBoard 2 will require the FireBoard Drive Cable for fan use, while the FireBoard 2 Drive allows a fan to plug directly into the unit via the integrated 2.5mm port. Visit the Drive Operations section to learn more about using a fan with FireBoard.

Reading Temperatures

Using your FireBoard is simple.

Once you’ve connected temperature probes, the FireBoard will automatically start logging temperatures and displaying them on the screen. After you’ve activated your FireBoard, you’re ready to start tracking your temperatures remotely, keep detailed notes on your sessions, get temperature alerts, and more.

Please note that the FireBoard will automatically reconnect to any wireless networks which have been previously configured and are still available. Temperatures are also always available over Bluetooth, provided it is in range (approx 100’). See the Bluetooth section for more information about Bluetooth connections.

A new session will automatically be started once temperature data is being pushed. You can easily modify the session name and add notes via the “Sessions” view of the app. For more information, visit the Sessions section.

Tracking Temperatures

Start logging temperature data by plugging a probe into one of the six available channels. Your FireBoard takes a temperature reading every five seconds for each probe connected.

View your temperature readings in the App on the Dashboard.

Buttons

Power on your unit by pressing any of the buttons.

Holding any button for two seconds will bring up the main menu. Select the menu item by pressing the corresponding button. The menu will close automatically after five seconds if nothing has been selected.

The top button toggles through screen views. There are five main view options:

Each of the buttons provides different functions on the screen views. In general: the top button toggles through screen views, the middle button changes the selected channel, and the bottom button toggles display options.

To power the unit off, hold any of the buttons, then press the button next to “Power Off”.
