Environment

  • Product: Galaxy, GalaxyPro, GPR, GP3, GP4, GS6
  • Component: Temperature Sensor

Steps

  • An external temperature or "temp" sensor is a device or the instrumentation equipment which is used to measure temperature. If a temperature sensor is mounted on or near your display and connected to the back of the display, then the current outside temperature for that installation can be shown on the display.

  • A temperature sensor enclosure is made up of eight plastic disks, a metal mounting bracket, and a 25-foot (or longer) weather-resistant cable. In most cases, the enclosure is mounted using two screws. The cable is plugged into the back of the host display.

  • Temperature sensors are mounted vertically in the desired location on or near the display. A suitable location is determined during installation resulting in the temperature sensor being attached to the sign, attached to the structure of the sign, or mounted in another location supplied by the display owner.
