FAQs

What is this site?
It is strictly a news website focusing on temperature and moisture sensors, their variants, news of developments, uses, calibration, standards, training available in their uses etc. But only news items.

Why do I see comments seeking RFQs?

Some buyers do not know where to buy specialty products like certain temperature & moisture sensor products. At the present time (Summer 2009) we will allow submitted Requests For Quotations (RFQs) to be posted here at no charge as Comments so that some web-aware vendors may respond. We receive visitors to our websites from more than 100 different countries.

Where do we get our news?
We get it from many sources both on and off the Web.

Visitors are welcome to submit their own news items at no cost, too, in fact they are encouraged. Submitted news stories have the top priority in the news queue since they save us time.

To submit a news or PR story (post) click on the “Submit News” here or at the link at the top of the page. A new page with a submission form will appear.

The rest is straightforward.

We limit organizations PR stories to a maximum frequency of one per week, unless there is an significant issue that warrants more frequent publishing

There is no requirement to register.

Realize, please, that for the sake of our reputation as a student-friendly website provider, we reserve the right to edit or delete all entries. They are all reviewed!

How is this site different than TempSensor.net; isn’t that a news website, too?
This site was created and is managed by the same group, The MeasurementMedia Division of Temperatures.com, Inc in Southampton Pennsylvania, USA as TempSensorNEWS.com.

It has taken over the news function from TempSensor.net, because the latter has grown into something quite a bit more than just a news site.

TempSensor.net has become a specialized set of self-service directories covering suppliers and technical resources for those interested in temperature and moisture sensors

We wanted visitors to recognize the distinction and felt that a news-only website was the way to achieve this.

We are gradually doing this with some of our other websites as you may notice; there is just too much useful and good content on the Web.

We already have transferred the entire archive of news stories from TempSensor.net to this site’s database.

They remain freely accessible as they were before.

We also have left the archive of more than 800 searchable news stories there on TempSensor.net; it’s just that the latest news items will appear here?? and be archived only here.

That changeover happened during?? April 2007.

Why won’t there be any news on TempSensor.net?
Not the case at all. The News Headlines here will be listed and changed daily on TempSensor.net, right in the middle of the left hand column and smack dab at the top of the home page on About Temperature Sensors. But only the headlines.

If the story headline interests you, just click on it to read the full story and links to other details.

Because of the hyper-linking possible on the Web, it really doesn’t matter where the content resides. Access is what counts.

Hi, I have recently purchased a CAHA Microprocessor Program Controller for my kiln which I use to fire ceramics. Unfortunately I do not understand the Instruction Manual and the supplier dos not provide a service to help me programme it. Any ideas about what to do? Does anyone know of a manual written for the layman?
Sorry, we do not know much about control products or kiln control.

Perhaps you may find help on automation.com or the Orton Ceramics website. The latter has information on kiln controls at www.ortonceramic.com/resources/faq/faq.php?t=ql&c=Controllers

Which of the following temperatures is coldest? -40 degrees Fahrenheit, -40 degrees Celsius, 40 degrees Fahrenheit, 40 degrees Celsius, or 40 Kelvin?
We don’t know why such an elementary question is being asked here, but clearly the answer is 40 Kelvin is the coldest of the choices. Is there any doubt, we wonder?

Or does someone not know the two conversion relationships of:

Deg F= 9/5 x (Deg C) + 32 and Deg C = K + 273.15

Of course if you solve the Deg F to Deg C conversion relationship, you find that the two scales coincide at -40 Degrees C and F!

If there’s still any doubt, visit our companion website’s page on Temperature Scales & Conversions between them at www.temperatures.com/scales.html to get some education.

What benefit is there to registering?
Actually there is only one and we usually discourage registration. However, those interested in contributing on a regular basis and who wish to be recognized as conversant in this technical area are encouraged to register and submit articles.

To be credited with a byline on an article fill in the submission form completely.

You get credit for your submissions both in the posting of your user name on articles, but also in our summary statistics. If you prove trustworthy and a competent story reporter, you could be advanced to Author status, even Editor status.
