Where to put the thermometer inside incubator
    #1071590 - 11/20/02 10:37 PM (14 years, 23 days ago)

Where should I put the thermometer inside the incubator? I tried placing it flat on top of the jars and standing up surrounded by jars, each got different readings.... it's about 5 degree difference.. could anyone help me with this?

Using the wireless 63-1030 model from Radioshack..

Thanks

put it someplace where it will only be reading the air not the tempature of the walls of the incubator. Although you should tak readings there too to make sure it's not too hot. Just ry to keep around 80-85 and you'll be fine.

I put mine in the midst of my jars to get an overall reading.

Like this?


Sorry for the crappy drawing..

Since the sensor is actually on the bottom of the unit, should I put it in upside down so the sensor's on top? Or it's fine the it is as in the picture?

Just like that, only I'm not as cool as you cause I don't have a digital thermometer.

i put my thermometer on the side of my jars closest to the heater (aquarium heater in jar). i think it's important to watch the highest temperature which is nearest the heater. if you get the optimal temperature in the middle of the jars, it will be hotter than optimal on the side nearest the heater. six of one, half dozen of the other, i suppose.
