Mine are both 3ft

My fault. I misread the specs. I saw probe length of 3" and my mind said 3 ft. Got it now

Hello,

 

Our probe wire is around 40 inches in length and the probe itself for the TP20 are 6 1/2 inches long. The only probe which is 3 inches long is the BBQ probe for the TP08

 

Thanks,

Hello Chop,

 

20% has no time limit, we'd like all members of this smoking community to have access to the discount.

In response to "ThermoPro" -

 

With all due respect - I can understand the probes being waterproof - this is great news - however why wouldn't the stainless steel mesh be waterproof?  This should not rust or stain (hence the STAINLESS!) - are you sure this is not 304 or 316 SS wire cloth - ( as seen: http://www.bwire.com ).

 

If it is plain steel - then this is going to rust VERY quickly, and that lifetime warranty you mentioned will be coming into play quite a bit!

 

Love the products and thanks for taking the time to answer all of this.

Although not ThermoPro, you may want to re-read what's written and highlighted above. Any metal mesh like this is porous by definition:  interlaced threads of metal aren't going to be impervious to liquid.  Some may deflect liquids better than others, but being waterproof isn't a quality or feature of woven mesh.

Anyone able to give a comparison on the frequency of the alarm? 

 

I recently purchased an ET-733 dual probe unit from a sponsor here which I can not get far enough away to loose signal walking around my house like all my sensors in the past.  Stays locked on solid anywhere in my house, even out in the front yard.  Amazing range..

 

But, I can not hear the frequency of the Beeper, it is a higher pitch than the older versions.  I was messing with it setting it up and the low temp alarm was flashing, so what I skipped over it, I will get to setting that later.  Wifey finally came in from another room and asked if I could turn that obnoxious beep off.  My response.  What beep?

 

If these units have a lower frequency that are in my hearing range, I might be interested.

 

Any comments?

I thought his post made perfect sense and is appropriate. He is simply asking whether this unit (the subject of this thread) has a beeper that is lower in frequency so he can hear it. My wife has a hearing problem and has this exact problem, so the answer is quite important to me as well.

I stand corrected, as I misread the post. My apologies, Driver, and thanks, John. I'll edit prior post.

In afterthought looking at my post from that direction, I see your point and agree.  I am not aware of how to remove my post, so all I can do is offer my apology.  Certainly not my intent to offend anyone, especially our great sponsors providing products to help make our smokes better and easier.

 

I guess I got carried away with finding out about the pluses and minuses of a new, at least to me, smoking accessory.  We have such great sponsors here with various products but each have unique qualities and wanted to share my knowledge and know more of the things I do not know to help all of us have great success with our smokes..

 

I will address my questions in a new thread later.  Thanks for your comment.  Ken

It's all good, Ken: I jumped the gun and misunderstood your original question. I haven't toyed with my two to see if the alarm sounds can be altered. Unfortunately I'm not near them to try, and might be couple of days before I can. Hopefully you'll get an answer before then.

I've been in commercial construction for the last 30 years . My hearing is trashed for sure . I can hear the tone on the alarm ,, even from a good distance . Have not cooked with this yet ( TP-20 ) but the test for temp ,,, and range is awesome .

Here's an off-the-wall thought (like I have any other kind!):  Chop, what if you took a video--with audio--of your 20 while the alarm's going off (test mode, recycle mode, etc.), post it here, and see if Driver's able to hear it?  Just a wild hair....

The man asked a question . I answered  trying to help . Maybe you should keep your off the wall comments to your self .

No fighting guys.    Lets be civil and help.

C'mon Chop, only person I was poking fun at was myself.  My thought was if the frequency from your video is such that Driver can hear it, it may be helpful to him--I wasn't trying to insult anyone. 

 

If it's that big a deal, I'll do it when I have access to my TPs and see if it is a unit that would be of benefit to him.  My apologies if I ruffled your feathers, as that wasn't the intent.  He's trying to find a unit with a frequency that he can hear, and to my knowledge, the units in this price range do not have adjustable tones or frequencies.

post #60 of 83

I am an EE and have test equipment. I have the Maverick and can test its various beeps and give you the exact frequency. If someone can post the beep of this unit (just take a five-second video and upload it to YouTube or some other site), I can do the same test on that one as well.

 

Everyone's hearing loss is different, and the most common afflictions make it more difficult to hear higher frequencies. However, there are psychological aspects of some hearing problems as well, and as a result, alarms which consist of several tones mixed together, rather than a single, pure frequency, are often easier to hear.
