Advanced Settings

From the Device page in the Apps, visit the Advanced Settings page to view additional ways to configure your FireBoard.

Degree Type

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 the 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 conducting an Ice Bath or Boiling Water test.

Screen Contrast

Adjust the screen contrast to suit your preference.

Probe Configuration

Each channel can be configured based on the probe that is attached to it. Adjust your probe configuration for a particular channel using the options below.

Probe type

FireBoard supports multiple probe types: RTD PT-100, 100K Thermistor, and 10K Thermistor. By default this is set to 100K Thermistor for most FireBoards. If you use a probe type other than 100K Thermistor, be sure to set it here for accurate readings. Learn more about FireBoard probe options here.

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.
