    Hi all,

    Wondering if someone could give me some advice. It has been a while since I have used the toolkit software and struggling a bit to remember how it all works.
    I have an 5031TS temperature sensor and I just want to display the temp on a touchscreen. I have it come up in toolkit ok but not sure how to link it all.

    * Do I need to set up any of the fields in the toolkit area or does the sensor transmit automatically?
    * I have been mucking around with monitor and measurement apps but not sure if this is the best way to simply display the value?
    * In Piced, what widget or component do I use to display the temp?

    I am sure this is simple but struggling to work it out.


    Thanks
    Glen

    Hey Glen
    can you confirm you have the 5031TS (the old basic unit) or a digital one 5031RDTSL? The old one does not broadcast its temperature so you cannot display it.

    Hi Conformist, it is the 5031TS. Is there a way to poll it every 20 mins or so?

    The 5031TS doesn't broadcast but you can get the temperature from it in PICED using a Monitor.

    You set this up using the Monitor Manager. You can set up the poll interval there... you don't want to poll too often but 20 mins is probably a bit too long. Once a minute would be fine.
