ERROR CAPTURE – is important so you know if there is a problem with any one of your probes. Good software lets you know that something is not working and where to find the problem. I worked to add this functionality to my sketch, but I am not a good enough programer to figure out where to insert it without causing errors to occur. So I had to drop the feature. Now that I am having to go a new and different direction I will make sure to have ” error capture ” feature in the new sketch configuration.
I was using a 2 probe sketch and only had DEVICE O – PROBE-OO7 working , but the temp reported out for DEVICE I – PROBE-OO8 the same temp as Device O. The correct way would be for the sketch to report back that “DEVICE I – PROBE-OO8 not working correctly” this would be ideal. This is really important when you are running a lot of probes.
