I have tested it with both digital and a regular glass thermometer...

Hmmm.... slope factor. Never heard of that before, in the manual it has this under the specs (forgive me, I'm an idiot about this stuff):
Thermocouple: K, S, WRe (5/26), T, E, J, B, N
Resistance temperature detector: Pt100, Cu50,
DC voltage: 0~5V, 1~5V, 0~1V, -100~100mV, -20~20mV, -5~5V, 0.2~1V.
DC current (external shunt resist needed): 0~10mA, 1~20mA, 4~20mA
Is it the resistance temperature detector #s that I should be matching up?
