This sensor is designed to be mounted on the back wall of the smoker cabinet. Comparing with the free-hanging, the wall mount sensor makes the smoker looks neater. Once it is mounted, you don’t need to worry about the sensor location again. However, mount this sensor means that you need to drill a 5/16” diameter hole on the back wall of the smoker (not a plug-n-play operation). In most situations, the reading of both type of sensors are identical. But when the cabinet is empty, the reading of the wall mount sensor might be 3 to 4˚F higher than the free hanging sensor located in the center. This is because the heater is located in the bottom back. When there is no food on the shelf, the hot air will take a short cut to the top along the back wall. A unique design of the sensor is the thermoplastic mounting base. It slows down the heat sink effect of the sheet metal wall which causes the sensor reading lower than actual temperature. The length and diameter of the sensor are also optimized for the accuracy and response speed.
If you have WSD-1204CPH
, this probe is not compabile. Please check WS-SENSOR05
instead. Please confirm the model number at the bottom of your controller.
This sensor fits the G series WS or WSD controllers including model WS-1211GPH
, WS-1210GPH, WSD-1500GPH
, and WSD-1200GPH
. It also supports SMD
smoker controller. It does not work for A, B, C, and D series WS or WSD controllers (e.g., model WS-XXXXA
, and WSD-XXXXC
PH). It does not work for Auber SYL series controllers either.
Please keep the sensor plug dry. Please DO NOT wash it or expose it to rain. Fail to do so may lead to inaccurate or unstable temperature reading.
