How does one change  the value from Celsius to Fahrenheit when using the Temp command? Initially the info states to calib using 1000 and degrees in Fahrenheit, but when I press the button it replies with degrees in Celsius..

Hi Adam,

The firmware right now only works with Celsius because there was no urgent need to add support for Fahrenheit and natively the temperature is also in Celsius. To convert to F in programs we would do the following calculation:

temp rawval
SET degf=rawval*9/5+32
IM My temperature is degf F

The above is basically a sample small program and that can be integrated into any program you would like to make.

Also, I just spoke to our engineers over this and they said they will schedule support for F in the next f/w release. Likely 1 to 2 weeks away at most.

Once the f/w is released you will have to issue command: Conf temp F

That will change the configuration on the SiB and set it to F, which can also be set back to C if you want to. To see your current configuration settings you can do Conf Status - but that switch above will only be available on next f/w release.

Regards,
Mark

Hi Adam,

The latest firmware 784 now has Fahrenheit support!

To make default either F or C, you send command:

Conf temp F or Conf temp C

Once you do either, sending command Temp, will cause the SiB to return temperature in the default set temperature scale.

Must first update!

Default is set to C.

Regards,
Mark

Thanks Mark, seems to work on one but a second doesn't seem to respond to the update command. Even post format please and resync to the app. Is there a factory reset on the sib itself?

Hi Adam,

The SiB you managed to update was on firmware version 780 already (you must have updated that recently), so when you sent "update" it took you to the latest.

The other SiB however, is on f/w 714 and so when you sent update, you would have received a notification saying that you can't update to the latest just by using the word update, that you have to type update followed by the number, for example Update 787.

The reason, is that it is a warning that you will lose any programs running in the SiB due to a major update in the f/w between version 714 and the latest, so its more of a big heads up that what you're about to do will cause your programs to be deleted and that you will need to submit them again (in case you had important programs running in the SiB).

So yeah, just do update 787 and it will update fine.

Regards,
Mark
