Default Love Temp Probe polarity?

I have two Love TS-5 Temp probes. This is a 2 wire probe (blue wire and brown wire). I'm wiring these into my Auber Temp controller (PID). Is there a certain polarity for these probes (i.e. + or - )?

The Love TS-5 is a PTC thermistor (1000Ω @ 25°C), I am almost sure the Auber temp input is not designed for PTC type sensors.
Look a the Auber specs.

Best wishes,

I don't think it matters.
The resistance changes with temp and if there is no diode then it wouldn't matter.

I am known to be wrong alot though.

Come by my house for a few beers and we can talk about sensors
