Default Auberins RTD Sensor

So i really like these probes, but i have a love controller. Would these work with a love controller? or would they only work with the auberins controller?

As far as I know, an RTD is an RTD.
Looking at the LOVE controller 32A online shows an RTD input.

No sir.
You can purchase a NIST or DIN version, and the controller needs to know which version you are using.The calibration curve is different.
Most common is the DIN version.

The probes are great but they don't work with LOVEs. I'd suggest buying some of the Auber PID's as a LOVE replacement. Work just as well and are cheaper.

Can anyone who has one of these tell me if the actual sensor is removable? I have a BrewTroller and just like the idea of having a nice disconnect right there at the probe. If I could replace the sensor with a Dallas/Maxim DS18S20 and rewire the connector.

Thanks,

I have a few auber RTDs that I converted to thermistors because I switched over to a BCS. However, this won't work for a brewtroller setup because those sensors are much larger than a thermistor or RTD bead. The thermal wells on the auber RTDs are a lot smaller diameter than your average 1/4" thermal well.

Thanks, that's too bad. The TO-92 package of the DS18S20 is 4.4mm wide (0.18") - if it's not too much work, could you just check what the OD is?

The OD is 0.16"

I unscrewed the 4 little screws that hold the probe together to get access to the sensor inside. I then desoldered the RTD and soldered in my thermistor after lengthening the leads with some bus wire. I spread some thermal paste on the thermistor bead and put it back together. They work great.
